My name is Jo Blackwell, and I am one of life’s jugglers. We all are, of course, to some extent. Especially parents of young children. But I am not one of those any more. Now, I am a juggler of ideas, concepts, dreams and projects. And I am an expert dropper of balls.

whiteboard, currently being cleared for the purpose. I love that whiteboard. I’ve tried digital alternatives, like Evernote (the basic version is free), but there’s something about seeing “the whole picture” – the contents of my whirling brain stilled and all in one place – that is strangely reassuring. Even more than my notebooks, filled with lists and notes and day to day jottings, my whiteboard helps me to see the connections between my projects and to strategise. Even the act of physically writing on it is satisfying, somehow. So much more so than typing.
On my wish list is the ability to draw and write on a digital equivalent of my whiteboard.
