Nothing to be afraid of… Image by busy.pochi
First of all, I’ve switched from using a BlogSpot.com address to my own url: (www.davedodgson.com). There were two reasons for this: first and foremost, I wanted to ‘move’ my blog to protect against any future knee-jerk decisions from the Turkish judicial system to ban BlogSpot here; secondly, I feel like this makes the blog more of my ‘own’ space on the web, something I can keep building and developing as I do the same in my career.
I’ve also added a few extra pages to the blog and linked them to the tab at the top of the page. Some of the pages highlight collections of posts on a similar theme such as ‘Teaching Young Learners’ and ‘My MA Studies’. I’ve also added a page featuring posts from my guest bloggers. Others are static pages to explain more about me and this blog to newcomers as well as to direct readers to my guest posts elsewhere and a summary of the various presentations and workshops I’ve done recently.
All of these pages are open to comment and I’d also appreciate your comments here to let me know what you think. Oh, and if you include my blog in your RSS feeds or auto-tweet it through Twitterfeed or some other service, I’d like to say two things: 1) Thanks! and 2) Please make sure you have updated the service with the new url to make sure it gets through.
