A post late yesterday on the IABC Chair Blog by outgoing IABC Chairman David Kistle is prefaced by this prominent statement:
Look for the all-new IABC Blog at this URL, starting Wednesday, 6 April.
I imagine this is a typo (like the post headline: “Bloogin’s cool…”) and the text should say “Look for the all-new IABC Chair Blog…”
Speaking frankly about the difficulties he confronted in writing posts for the blog, Kistle says:
[…] So, facing the reality that blogging isn’t my thing, this is my last post. Does this mean the end of the Chairman’s Blog? No. Warren Bickford, ABC (IABC/Regina) is eager to take the wheel and kick the blog into high gear. And, the timing is perfect. Warren becomes chairman in June so he’ll have a few months to ramp up.
The blog has been the subject of withering criticism, including by some IABC members who blog – me as well – since its launch last October. Weeks, then months, of gaps between posts were at the heart of such criticisms.
Incoming IABC Chair Warren Bickford has big plans for this blog, according to comments he’s made in Memberspeak, IABC’s member-only discussion forum. “I’m looking forward to the challenge,” he says.
Benefit of the doubt time starts this coming Wednesday.
