June meeting 2013: Blogging

Our Wednesday 5th of June meeting is on blogs and blogging, and being convened by Neil from WWF (thanks Neil!)
Here’s the suggested agenda / topics for discussion from Neil:

Covering the technical (stats, platforms, design, connection to other websites), the practical (who blogs, how do you support them, what training do you offer), and the creative (blogging style, formats, audience engagement techniques).

Your (easy peasy) homework is to bring us a very basic summary (could be verbal) of how you do it at your charity, and something interesting about your charity’s blog (or an interesting reason why you don’t have one!). A great post, something you’ve learned about your audiences, a clever technical innovation etc.

The WWF office where we’re meeting is in the Can Mezzanine, in Boardroom D in the basement (as Neil mentioned in comments.)

    Hi there, I was hoping I could come along to the meeting. I work for the IoF but am volunteering for Merlin at the moment on a blogger outreach project. I am not on Facebook (I know, how strange!) but hoping this comment is okay to book my place?

  • Rita Marcangelo

    Hi, I’d like to come along too (my first time!), I work on the blogs at Friends of the Earth. What time do you meet? Thanks, Rita

    Hi Edward – yes you’re in – and Rita, we start at 4pm – look forward to meeting you both.

    An update for next week – I’ll be bringing a few of my colleagues with me to say hello and talk about some aspects of our blogging and media work – Oana and Paul from our online team who you’ve met before, Kellie who is working up our new digital PR strategy, and Cara from our media team.

    Between us we’ll do some short presentations of work we’re doing at WWF, with time after each for you guys to let us know what you are up to:

    1. The WWF blog – where we’ve got to and how we got there
    2. Engaging with guest bloggers
    3. Video blogging

    And most importantly – we’ve decided on the pub for afterwards – the Goldsmith on Southwark Bridge Road

    Hope lots of you can make it

      Sounds great – thank you Neil

      I am looking forward to meeting you all.
