Total Politics Blogging Guide 2011-12 – get involved

This is a post targeted at councillors and council officers.

We’ve been asked to contribute an essay for Total Politics’ yearly political blogging guide.

For the TP audience, we thought it would work best to focus on how the take up of blogging and social media has / is affecting government and politics at a local level.

– is it a good use of a councillor’s time to tweet and blog?

– how strong is engagement on social media compared to through traditional face to face contact

– will the publicity code nudge more councillors to get more active online?

Have you got any exciting ideas, initiatives or examples that you would like us to include?

If so, please leave a comment below.
