A blog is a great tool to communicate short messages to your audience, but the less often you post, the more people forget that you’re there! This is why we recommend that blogging becomes a habit, and recommend that you update it at least once a month.
This month’s blogging tip
We will also begin sharing blogging ideas monthly. With this assistance, we hope you will begin posting regularly to communicate with prospective, new and current students. For the month of August, an easy yet meaningful post would be something like:
Welcome back students! So much has happened over the summer, and we hope that you are ready to begin an exciting year, finding your place here at Missouri State. Get the most of your college experience by joining one of our student organizations (link to them) or attend the New Student Festival on Aug. 18 to learn about getting involved on campus.
That’s it. A blog is not a research paper and doesn’t need to be more than a couple of sentences. If you have other ideas that are longer – that’s great, too. But they don’t have to be. Just think of it as a way to showcase some points of pride for your department.
