If you feel that your office, program, or academic unit would benefit from a blog, first determine the following:
Why do we need a blog?
While there are no rules for a blog’s use, it is generally accepted that a blog should be used as an informal communication tool. Telling stories, posting pictures and publicizing events before they occur (and after) are great uses for blogs. They are especially useful for students to tell their stories to the world about their experience at New Paltz. We recommend you allow the use of comments in blog posts, as discussions that may develop often enhance your message.
Blogs are NOT generally a good tool for posting important academic information!
Do we have the resources?
While a blog can be ready for use in a short period of time (usually within 2-6 weeks depending on current staffing and work-load in the Web Administration Office), updating the blog must be done frequently and must be sustained to be of value. In most cases, old content is worse than no content at all. Make certain that your office will be able to maintain the blog over time.
If you feel that a blog is the correct tool for your message, fill out a Web Services Request form in my.newpaltz.edu and request we create on for you. The Office of Communication & Marketing will consult with you as time allows.
