As you all know, I have been involved in the development of the new Foreign and Commonwealth (FCO) website – www.fco.gov.uk – looking pretty lovely right now.
Many of you have asked me why I have not blogged the ‘launch’, or switch over, from the old to new site… well, because actually my role had little to do with it. Not that I am not proud of what has been achieved, rather it is not right for me to lay any claim to it at all!
I did do last minute frantic CMS work for a week; however, I was hired to ensure that the 220 posts around the world knew what we were doing, understood what they had to do and felt as if they were a part of this big change.
This does not warrant me doing a big HAZZAH!! when the new site goes live
It is not me being myopic, I just do not feel as if it is exactly my place.
However, the e-media team at the FCO have given blood, sweat and tears to make this happen, and they deserve the plaudits.
Go say something nice 🙂 there were many 1am moments in producing this site
