Note - How to use the “Blog Board” and “Discussion Forum” to engage the community: These platforms should be used accordingly:

  • Blog Board – Blog posts are for informative topics of broad interest to the community. They should start with a picture or video, so the image appears on the front page on the site and gives a sense of the topic as well as inviting people to click in for more. Videos should be embedded (paste the embed code in the HTML tab, not the Rich Text tab). The post should also include links where appropriate. Don't make people do a Google search for what you're talking about if you can provide a link

  • Information Forum – The Information Forum is to initiate a topic, question or idea so people can start commenting and collaborating around it
