#womened

How to write a blog for #womened‍ on Staffrm. @misswilsey‍ has asked that we stick with the #womened hashtag for the #womened‍Wednesday posts as it will be easier to track them.

blɒɡ/

noun

1. 1. 
a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.



To blog on Staffrm, you need to join. Simply google the website and it will tell you how.

Always write your post in word or notes and then cut and paste it into Staffrm.

You have a 500 word limit so keep an eye on that when writing.

When you are ready to post, click on the pencil top left when you are on the home page.

Paste your text where it says "type here".

Add a title and the hashtag womened in the box where it says "hashtag".

ˈhaʃtaɡ/

noun 

1. a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media websites and applications, especially Twitter, to identify messages on a specific topic.

The box can sometimes be frustrating to use, particularly on a smart phone, but persevere!

You need to add a picture and be sure that it is one that you are permitted to use. I use photos from Pixabay and credit that at the bottom. I always work on my phone so I find the photo on the Pixabay site, save image into my phone photo library and then select from there when prompted.

Once your post is published, you can edit it. You do this by being signed in, having your post open and clicking on the pencil top right.

Once edited, click "done" top right. You can also delete a post this way.

People (members) may comment on your post and you can 'recommend' their comments by clicking the star underneath them. You can also reply and if you want to tag/alert the person, type @ and their Staffrm profile name- e.g. @lenabellina

If you want to share the post on twitter, open it and select and copy the address bar at the top.... then just paste it into a tweet.

E.g. staffrm.io/@lenabellina/R3Iv9I...

You can also paste links to other posts in your post.

Other people can copy and reshare your post.

If you can't think of what to write, just take one of the 8 Cs and start. Be 10%braver!

Clarity, communication, connection, collaboration, confidence, community, challenge and change.

Have fun.
