Two years ago April, I started a blog and have been posting every week since then except when a guest blogger has provided some nuggets of wisdom for our readers. 9th Period is aimed at independent school communicators and touches on subjects ranging from improving your magazine and admission viewbook to what is branding and how to conduct an interview. By now there are well over 100 entries for you to browse through, organized in: Fundamentals (biggest selection), Insights, Musings and one Of Note. It’s free, it’s informative, it’s fun.
If you are looking for a grab bag of how-to’s, this is the blog for you. Read up on “What is a Communications Plan,” “E-News or E-Snooze,” “The Role of Research in Fundraising Communications,” or “Managing Project Mayhem.” Websites, social media? It’s there. Tons of tips help you think smarter and do your job better. What you can find with a couple of clicks makes an end-of-day coffee break a learning experience. It’s school. It’s WHAT WE DO.
