Blogging with TrainingZone

Unfortunately, while we’ve been seeing more and more excellent content from members on the site, groups were very quiet when compared to other areas, especially Any Answers and Blogs.

He stared at the words for some time and then concluded calmly ‘I need to shift from task to ask’.
