What is a blog?
A blog (short for “web log”) is special kind of website which is a bit like an online diary. It has a series of articles (called “posts”) published in reverse chronological order, which may be illustrated with pictures, sound or video. They may also link to other websites for further information, or other materials such as pdf documents. In addition, it can have fixed content (called Pages) which are accessed via a drop-down Menu found above the articles.

How do I tell you about some news I have about Community Link-Up?
That’s great! We love hearing your news about your fundraising exploits or link-ups with colleagues from both within and outside of Connect Group. We’re especially looking for examples of how you’re using Volunteer Time or any link-ups you’ve had, to provide some Case Studies to help inspire your colleagues.

The downloadable Publicity Form is designed to help you provide this news and for us to tell your story. Don’t forget to send us your pictures too!

Remember, if we feature your story here on Community Link-Up, we’ll donate £20 to your nominated charity.
