My Information Dilemma

I've been having a tough time figuring out what to do. I want to share ideas with people and try and give them one place to look for them. I have my Twitter feed. This is generally followed by strangers or friends found through Twitter. I also have this blog which was set up because everyone seemed to be blogging and I wasn't. I thought it would be good to see what it was all about. Then I have my website. This is a Joomla-based website for my ICT Cluster. As well as the day job, I run an ICT cluster for around 50 schools. Some meetings we get 15 people, some we get 50. I wanted them to have somewhere to go to find out information, but none of them use Twitter.
So what's the solution?
Maybe I should cut-down the website completely and just have cluster and ICT Mark information? The rest of the site is less important and was put on there to help fill it up a bit.
Maybe I should point them all to this blog? For now I have put the links on the blog page so that they can use my Twitter feed or delicious links if they wish. But it still lacks a space to give ICT mark information or useful dates.
Maybe I should have the invite/agenda of cluster meetings as a blog post, they can then use the labels/tags to find cluster agendas?

Any suggestions?

  1. it's a big problem-communicating with ludite non-tech folk who are so far up their own arse that they can't plug-in!
    Set up an email tree?
    Signposting-use paper to publicise your blog/website/Twitter.
    Most non-techie are scared/think it a waste of time it's up to you to educate them.
    Do a 'how to...' session on web 2.0 stuff-Most won't know how and will be afraid to ask!
    Don't forget the film 'Field of Dreams' if you build it they will come.

    Just hang in there Ian-keep signposting,blogging and tweeting-with the right nudges-eventually they'll catch on!
