Dear Orgs who want to blog

The last few years blogging has exploded to the point where everyone wants one or rather everyone thinks they need one. Yes, email is for old people, but it is still a great way to communicate. Yes, blogging is fun, fluid, but takes up a lot of time. It can also be a fabulous way to get your message out to people who aren't on your mailing list.

That said, before you launch a new blog, please try to consult with an expert. Yes, I am considering myself one of them. Despite not having a huge following myself, I have been around long enough to give you some great pointers for your newborn blog. And if you're a friend, I'll even do it for free. If you're not, I'm pretty darn inexpensive. Ask Planned Parenthood. If you're a feminist org that I am in love with, we can chat. If you're a conservative group, I'm $200/hour plus travel expenses. See...I'll still work for ya, but I know you have money.

It just saddens me to see blogs started by awesome orgs who should be using blogs only fail to say, name their blog or have it look nice on every platform.

It's really not that hard to learn, it just takes time. Please, let me save you that time and get your rocking from day one.

Your BFF,
Veronica

Great advice - especially for a novice blogger. Although I think $200 per hour for conservative buddies is too low. They would charge at least $500 to fleece the public.

And now back to my humble blog - simply to share recipes and news with friends and family...

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
