Working as a Community Animator, I find communicating with the community a challenging task. To combat this, it is important to use various different communication tools to get the message out. One tool that I have found to be very effective in a blog. A blog allows me to be constantly updating the community about what is going on and allows them to access important information at a moments notice. The other good thing about blogs, while working in a not-for-profit, is that they can be free.
Here is an example of a blog that I created for one of the communities I was working in. Common Space became the brand for all work done within the community and the image floating in the background became the icon in all flyers etc.
