  • How much info is too much info: - there is such a thing as too much repetitiveness on the internet Goal: - We want to be the most effective we can be with our online presence as an organization. Making sure that we do not reinvent the wheel 88 times over will be essential to having the greatest impact online. Do some research, see what other Extension systems nationwide are doing online (sites, blogs, Twitter, etc) and try not to reinvent it. - We do not make as great of an impact if OSU Extension develops twenty blogs dedicated to the same topics. - Collaboration will be imperative to ensure that all of Ohio is working together to develop and maintain online resources – this will help eliminate redundancy in blogs and foster EERA and statewide partnerships/relationships. - link to /and have blogroll mentioning other OSU Extension blogs and websites to promote them
  • Less amount of work for everyone in updating the blog Blog posts could represent a range of topics / authors could focus on their area of specialization Blog may seem unorganized, less uniform, and not targeting one specific niche May require more work: checking with other authors before posting, etc. Individual Blogging: Blog can be more focused More of a “high-touch” blog (readers correspond with one author – makes for an intimate experience) More work for one person
