This week, I was seemingly flooded by announcement requests. Often times, people want to publish an announcement a month out, and then again a week or two before as a reminder. I cannot do that. In order to keep this blog from being overrun with announcements, I decided long ago to only do announcements for non-profits, schools, and the like. Now, I need to remind people that I will ONLY do ONE announcement per event, and events on the same day may be combined into one post. The submitting party can request when it is posted, but I cannot make any promises. I will do my best to publish as close as possible to the time requested, absent fires, floods, and road closures, and my moody internet cellular service. I do the announcements as a public service – well, the whole blog is a public service, actually.
I try to limit my blog posts to one a day, except in an emergency, so as not to flood my followers with emails, tweets, or FB. In the past when this influx of announcement requests has happened, I created a separate page for announcements, rather than this front page. If requests continue at the rate they have come in this week, I will reinstate that policy. It often happens in the Spring, as we prepare for the summer onslaught. If I do, I will post a reminder that events will be found there. Thank you all for your support to this blog and our community.
One thought on “A note about announcements”
Kate….I so appreciate your blog…keeps me in touch with all the important stuff going on in my favorite place….your policies are perfect…there are many other options to post about events…people can even create their own FB pages 🙂
Take care, enjoy the spring….I think there’s a bit more rain coming though…
