My community assignment is the 6/15 Green blog. My goal for this year is to make it a much more active blog and I plan to do this is a couple ways. First, I’m going to add this google groups to the RSS feed for the blog--what that means is that any time there is a new post on the blog, it will be announced to this group. Hopefully that will encourage people to come check out the page. Of course, feel free to add your own email to the RSS feed so you can get alerts any time there is a new post.
The second way is by adding more content. I see this as a community blog so I greatly welcome post from any members at any time. You can either email the post--be it pictures, stories, poems, ideas, or more--to the general email I’ve set up for the blog, which is email@example.com. Or you can post it yourself--the password for the blog is love2garden. I just ask that posts are friendly.
I’ll also be adding more content myself with a series of rotating weekly features that include:
- Ask a Gardener: where garden members can ask advice on any garden topic. Then, garden members can give responses in the reply section of the blog post. I’m hoping this is a way for new garden members or season gardeners alike to share their valuable knowledge. And if you have a question you want answered, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Featured Photo: A photo from the garden--please send photos again to email@example.com.
- Gardening in Brooklyn: Will feature local websites, stores, people and other great Brooklyn gardening resources.
- Wild Flower: Like a wild card topic--only it’s a garden, so let’s make it a wild flower. Miscellaneous topics, poems, recipes and more.
I look forward to helping make this another great year at the garden!
