Pinch Punch First of the Month. Happy February everyone! Let’s use February to celebrate everything to do with local gov websites and digital.
I’m Karen and I work at Gravesham Council as the Digital Officer and as part of our website project and also to aid my own learning we want to call on local gov digital people everywhere to find out what tip or tips you’d share with us and everyone else to help do digital in a local authority.
As we approach February we can’t think of a better way to do this than to using digital itself and we’ve called it #LocalGovWebFeb.
You might have some tips on doing the perfect navigation, is there a perfect nav for that matter? You might want to share user testing ideas you have or any programmes you use that others will benefit from knowing about. Icons – yes or no? What about content – anyone got any quick fire tips to get this right? Design tips, segmentation? Or if you have recently launched a new website what have you learnt that others can learn from too? The list goes on…
It’s a simple crowdsourced blog idea. We want to start and encourage the conversation and then share the learning.
You can get involved by commenting on this blog post or tweeting using the hashtag #LocalGovWebFeb and we’ll collate all the results in early March and share everyone’s tips, ideas and suggestions, plus there’ll be a doodle too – watch this space!
