Getting Your School News Published The Easy Way – Areavoices Digest #87

It’s close to that time. Some kids are chomping at bit, others are looking longingly at the backyard pool wondering where their summer went. Either way, it’s inevitable. Over the next couple of days (or weeks) the kiddos are back in the classroom.

And if you haven’t noticed it yet, Areavoices is a FABULOUS way to share your school news. Whether it’s a school district blog like some of the ones you see in this week’s recommended blog list, or a blog about one of the school’s teams or activities, blogging is a great way to get your news, photos and announcements published in the paper without having to beg an editor to include you. This puts the publishing power in your hands! Just start your blog, write your post, include a photo or two and post it. It’s that easy. If you know how to use Word, you can blog.

If you’re interested in what I’m talking about check out some of these school blogs. They’re good examples of what you can do. And if you have more questions, just go to the FAQ section of this blog or email me at
