      • Advantages/disadvantages of the blogs to the organisation
        • Offers a public platform for greater understanding of the issues facing people with a disability and their families.
        • Hey Dad and Freefall are written from a strengths-based, solution-focused approach, which assists people with CP and families to reframe their thinking about living with cerebral palsy into a more positive approach.
        • It provides the opportunity for the public to directly communicate with the authors and for them to engage in a dialogue in some instances – e.g. Freya’s post about being bullied at school http:// = com_myblog&show =School- reunions.html&Itemid =3
        • The blogs put a more human face to the organisation’s corporate communications
        • Freefall and Hey Dad blogs has been as ‘discussion-starters’ in our face-to-face parent support groups.
      • Disadvantages
        • additional time that is needed to moderate the comments (see below) but that is far outweighed by the benefits.  
    • 54. CP blogs - How they manage the blogs
      • Once the blog platforms were built, there are four elements involved in their administration/ maintenance.
      • Content:
        • Selecting the right bloggers for each blog
        • Mentoring the bloggers on web content writing
        • Teaching bloggers to use the blog software – so they can draft the blog posts online, upload images, etc
        • Editing / final authorisation for each blog (risk management strategy)
      • Comments:
        • Moderate and authorise comments daily (even on weekends) – authorisation required by admin before comments are published (protects the commenter as much as protecting the organisation).
      •   Hosting/Backups/Stats:
        • The blogs are hosted by the company that developed the Joomla blog platforms for us and they are responsible for the regular backups.
        • We run stats reports on the blogs each month to track site usage, see which entries were most popular, etc. This helps to inform other TSC communications/parent-education activities.
      • Promotion:
        • the team is often asked to present to conferences / meetings about the blog project and other promotional activities such as printing and distribution of DL cards advertising the blogs, etc.
