New Year – New Blogs by Melissa Findley

Good afternoon MASFAP!

We will soon be ramping up our blogging again in 2016 as another form of MASFAP communication! So, in thinking about the MASFAP Blog I wanted to pose a question to all of you who have joined the blog: What do you like about the blog and/or how can we better utilize it?

The 2016 MASFAP Board meets next week and each member of the board will be asked to submit a blog certain months in 2016. I want to also make sure all MASFAP members know they can post blogs by emailing me. Since it’s ideal to just have a few administrators who can post blogs, I will be posting most of the blogs, however, anyone that has joined the blog can add a comment. I encourage MAFSAP members to use this as a resource to ask questions and communicate in an informal way to your MASFAP colleagues.

Examples of blogs:

  • You have an informal question you would like to pose to the group to get feedback
  • You have something on your mind – really just a short informal thought that you want to share will colleagues
  • You want to start a conversation for others to post comments and have input, consider starting a blog
  • You have an update like a MASFAP experience, committee update, or thoughts on a MASFAP event – consider blogging
  • What are some examples you can think of to blog versus use the listserv? Please share your thoughts by adding a comment!

Thanks for reading – and consider blogging in 2016! Stay warm!

Thanks for the article – lots of good reasons to blog and/or follow blogs. I guess if I posted a question or started a discussion I would remember to check back here frequently.

I am glad is was helpful! I am learning too – I thought if someone commented then everyone received a notification, but that is not the case. Since I am replying directly to your comment now, I think only you will receive this notification!

Hi Kathy! Thanks for being willing to try to blog! I think of blogging as an informal way to communicate – it allows you to get information out and allows others to post comments/feedback all in one place! From what I can tell – once I post the initial blog, then everyone can comment on the blog. I do not think everyone gets the comments emailed to their inbox like the initial blog, but anyone out there should correct me if I am wrong! But everyone can see the comments when visiting the blog after the posting.

I found this short article interesting (Top 10 Reasons People Blog):

Let your voice be heard MASFAP! Consider blogging about something on your mind!

So, I don’t “blog” but willing to learn/try. Does everyone in MASFAP see this reply or does it just go to you (Melissa) to review and post? The examples for blogs that you listed are good but I don’t understand how it works. I know, I could Google it and find out, but I’m lazy (or trying to control my “too easily sidetracked from what I should be focused on” side).
