Okay, I’ve hit the 6 month mark of blogging practically every day on a whole range of issues. Really I don’t have much of a focus outside the things that I’m involved in, with an occasional commentary. The group of Youth & Young Adult Anti-Racism Trainer-Organizers I work with through the UUA decided at a small group meeting during GA to establish a blog as a communication tool, primarily for improving internal communication. I know that the UUA Journey Towards Wholeness Transformation Committee has their blog for external communication purposes.
I’m thinking that perhaps I should divide/segregate my blogging energies into the projects I’m working on/with, maybe collaboratively? For example, with the UU Campus Ministry (Advisory Committee and Guest Bloggers), Regional Organizing Consultants and District Young Adult/Campus Ministry Committees, DRUUMM and DRUUMM YAYA. My personal blog could essentialize more around issues of organizing, personal observation, and potentially grow around theological commentary.
Where do blogs fall along the effective communication continuum, particularly in relation to email lists?
I think that if I do move to set up multiple blogs, I will use typepad.com vs blogger.com, pay for the more expensive features (or request subsidy from UUA for work related blogging), unless someone has a better idea.
