May was the busiest month on the blog since it was launched, which is absolutely fantastic πŸ™‚ I just need to go figure out what made it this busy – I can identify a couple of factors, but really want to keep this up and keep doing whatever works. Obviously the key factor is all of you who read: thank you so much for stopping by, and please, do say hi, do let me know if there’s stuff you’d like to see more of, do keep reading.

The other thing that has given me a huge boost, is the fluffy link from Damien! Thank you!Β  Great to get this and a big hello toΒ  everyone who’s dropped in since then πŸ™‚


Two major new things of note:

A big hello to everyone who’s dropped by via Facebook! (88 fans at last count – wow! UPDATE: over 136 now! Many thanks to Linda & USI Equality) Lovely to see you all! Pull up a chair, make yourselves comfy, have a browse, and maybe a chat… πŸ™‚

Seriously – do talk to me, otherwise this is just me talking to thin air – a little unnerving. Your feedback really helps.

The other new thing is:

The new AHEAD website!

Our information officer Lorraine has been working hard on a major redesign of our website over the last while and results are now up for everyone to see. The content is going to be a work in progress in some sections, so again, all comments, questions, thoughts and so on are welcome. We want to make this as user friendly as possible, so let us know what you think!

This week is rather busy with the AHEAD symposium on Tuesday & then myself & WAM are at the GradIreland Recruiters Conference on Wednesday, but I’ll be back by the end of the week – in the meantime, feel free to peruse the archives here, or browse the AHEAD website.
