CUNA Councils Connect: What are Blogs?
"Wait, before you explain, I don't read any of the millions of blogs on the internet! What is a blog?"
Blog: A frequent, chronological publication of personal and professional thoughts/ideas/opinions/reflections. Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. Blog postings (or entries/articles) almost always contain the following structure - title of the post, post content, date/time, and comments where readers respond to the post. (Read Wikipedia's "blog" definition here).
Now, what is a blog on CUNA Councils Connect?
Blogs provide community members with their own information-sharing space, in which they may post ideas/opinions/thoughts to their very own online journal. Primarily, the list serve for each council (as well as online discussion groups in Connect) contain questions and answers between members - a member poses a question and members reply to that question. Your blog is your place to share a longer, more in-depth piece of information with members (not a direct query perhaps, but more of an FYI). For example, members can post their thoughts on recent credit union experiences, events, or hot industry topics.
Other community members may then provide comments upon each blog post, providing community members with a space to create an open dialogue around your post.
