2020 was one year I will never forget. The speed and volume of work I dealt with was defined by the word of the year – unprecedented. Digital comms stood starkly in focus as the answer to so many of our common difficulties – only our healthcare seemed to be offline.
After 16 years in design, subediting and proofreading for print, I’ve now been Digital Campaigns and Comms Manager for just over five years, which means I’m taking a bit more of a strategic approach to writing, editing and design for some digital platforms, which include a large website.
I’ve tried to keep this blog going in the precious few hours I’ve had to spare. My new focus seems to be short comments on books and films, plays or telly, but I’m still interested in how social media affects communications and privacy.
As well as fitting in a bit of activism for the Labour Party, of course, my other ‘lay’ interests are reading and philosophy, but I’m no expert in either, although I’m a bit picky on the ‘literature’.
