Blog posts can be a mention or re-blog of something relevant and interesting to the museum publishing field or it can be a feature article about a provoking topic or project. It probably should be fewer than 1,000 words and illustrations always make something more interesting. The Blog uses a software called WordPress. If you don’t understand how to use the software, Google “How to use WordPress” or something like that.
When you submit a post, it goes to the moderators for review. You will be notified by email when the post is published.
Wikis give us an open and collaborative authoring tool to build a body of documentation. Unlike a blog post, a wiki is expected to change and evolve. Wiki changes are made without moderation. If you see abuse happening in a wiki, please add a comment bringing it to the attention to the moderators.
Above all, please be polite and respectful of your collaborators.
