An adventure in blogging land with digital directions

Abstract

One of the great joys of attending UKCLE events like the Learning in Law Annual Conference is the sense of companionship and community it provides. The opportunity to meet up with colleagues from around the country and to
spend time jointly reflecting on the presentation we had just attended, or chatting about the every-day common issues we all face is a valuable aspect of this type of event. At their best, these informal exchanges of often semideveloped
or embryonic ideas provide us with an understanding ear, a sounding board, or even inspiration. The problem we often find though is that the initial feeling of positive energy and enthusiasm sparked in this environment slowly
starts to fade, and by the time we’re at our desks on Monday morning it’s back to business as usual, mounds of admin and a feeling of splendid isolation.
