Comments and Cakes
Hi, my name's Eliza and I'm the new content producer on the BBC Internet blog. It's my job to get people from around BBC Online to write about the work that they and their teams do.
I have been at the BBC for around five years, have worked across lots of different departments and consider it a big privilege to be able to highlight the innovative and cutting edge work carried out by my colleagues all across the organisation.
The events of the last few weeks have thrown a shadow over all of us, but I continue to believe in both the BBC and its values. We are impartial and honest and that means we should be transparent and open about what we do. This blog, like many BBC blogs, is a place to do that.
However, the Internet blog isn't just another forum for us to talk to you. It also gives us a chance to listen to what you have to say to us: to tell us what you think of our online products, to feedback on changes that have been made to them, to tell us about things you don't like or and maybe even occasionally to give some praise.
I hope the blog reflects the diverse array of work that's done by BBC Online and BBC Future Media. If it doesn't then let me know what you'd like to hear more about by leaving a comment.
Until then, my colleagues and I will continue to recover from Children In Need. If you work anywhere in the BBC this usually involves a 3 week semi-compulsory cake eating marathon, for the kids. It's Pudsey's fault but Mary Berry hasn't helped.
The BBC iPlayer cupcake you see above was made especially for CiN and was pretty good, but the chocolate and Guinness cake from the strategy team was the true winner.
