Welcome to my new blog…

I am completely new to blogging and am not really sure that I will have much to say. However, I thought that I would give it a go.

I am a social work academic and I thought it may be worthwhile posting up something about me and my work. Academics are often criticised for inhabiting remote ‘ivory towers’. Well, with no high structures made of elephant parts in sight, I can confirm that I am grounded in reality. I teach real social workers and my research is all about social work and social care practice.

Over the next few days and weeks I will write more about myself and the various aspects of my role. Some posts will be quite short as I don’t have much free time. Please do comment if you wish and engage in discussion.

I will use Twitter (@mgoat73) to let you know when new entries are made to this blog.
