updated 9th May 2013
In summer 2010 the site was given a thorough make-over. This brings it into line with today's website technology and usage, and allows for the changing shape of my work.
If you knew the site as it was before August 2010, here are some of the changes you will discover:
- A new structure and design to provide a sharper and more contemporary image
- a revised order and layout of contents to reflect a change in my work patterns from 2009
- an enhanced Resources section which enables you to comment on every one of the 90 items and to search by the six main categories
- a major new section dedicated to UCAN, the UK Church Administrator Network, with online database, forums and payment (some pages restricted to UCAN members)
- a general web forum to discuss 'creative organisation'
- access to Twitter accounts and RSS feeds.

Micki Hounslow's cartoons
Micki has been drawing cartoons for me since about 1980 (we were both very young then....). There are plenty of new ones on this new site. The six primary page cartoons form one set (rumoured to bear some resemblance to me), the six categories in the resources section another set. We are planning to add new cartoons to the Administrators section before long.
To see the detail, hover your mouse over the top right hand cartoon on each page and it will enlarge. You can use the bottom strip of cartoons to navigate.
updated 2nd May 2012
I hope you find this site more user-friendly, more interactive and more useful than my previous one. I'd value your comments, positive and negative, so please finish your tour with a visit to the Dialogue section. And bookmark the site - it will be developing steadily.
