John explains how to do it, here
https://www.allotment-garden.org/fruit/blackberries-growing/


I'm not organised enough to use the one side, then the other side the next year. I just cut away any branches that have fuited this year, and then tie in the new growth ready for it to fruit next year, I did mine a week or so ago. If you leave it a bit later the old growth tend to look a bit brown and woodier, so it is easy to see what you have to cut away.
