Have You Considered Internal Blogs?

Blogs can be an effective mechanism for internal communication with volunteers, staff, or both.  Here are some ideas.  Yes, you can limit access to a blog.

ARROW Set up a blog for a recruiting team to share highs and lows of their efforts to recruit volunteers. 
ARROWAsk staff to contribute to a blog that tells the small stories about volunteer successes.  Urge volunteers to “tell” on the work of other volunteers that make the effort worthwhile.man
ARROWGot a big committee for a big event.  Set up blogs for each sub-committee.  Give the chairs of each sub-committee access to all.  This allows for progress reports without lengthy meetings.
ARROWCreate a “Reminder” blog.  Dates for reports due, events planned, training session schedules, progress meetings.  Give staff and volunteers access.  Great volunteer job for a virtual volunteer.
ARROWNever forget pictures.  Always have a camera to snap the “working” moments. Post them on blogs.
