One email to rule them all
If you’re like me, and you try your best to stay up-to-date on all the goings-on in the surprisingly buzzing world of dialogue and deliberation, I think you’ll want to take note of this. This is just one example of how NCDD goes out of its way to figure out how to get you the info and resources you need to do your vital work as effectively as possible! Be sure to join NCDD, or renew/upgrade if you’re already a member.
NCDD now offers a great new way to stay on top of what’s happening throughout our field, via a simple email message that comes right to your inbox every couple of days.
Feedburner emails for NCDD’s Facebook wall: click to sign up for a daily summary of posts via email
NCDD uses its Facebook page (at www.facebook.com/ncddpage) to follow dozens of our members’ blogs focused on public engagement, conflict resolution, community problem-solving and online engagement. New posts in the NCDD Community News blog and Resource Center are also shared automagically on the NCDD page’s wall.
Consequently, keeping an eye on our Facebook page means you’re staying on top of news, happenings, and opinions across our field. BUT few people regularly check the pages they’ve liked (“fanned,” in olden days), and Facebook makes it all-too-easy to forget about the pages you’ve “liked” altogether.
Given all that, I’m excited to announce that you can now receive an almost-daily Feedburner email that lists, excerpts, and links to all the latest blog posts featured on the page (click here to sign up!). This Feedburner channel follows the RSS feed for our Facebook page’s wall, where we follow blogs from across our field, including…
- Public Conversations Project blog
- John Gastil’s Jury and Democracy Blog
- NCDD Community News Blog (and Resource Center)
- Tom Atlee’s Posterious
- AmericaSpeaks’ blog
- Sandor Schuman’s blog on Meetings, Groups, Decision Making, Facilitation
- Everyday Democracy’s RSS feed
- American Democracy Project blog
- Amanda Lyons’ (RE)VITALIZE VISUALS blog
- Bang the Table’s Online Community Engagement blog
- Davenport Institute’s Government 2.0 Watch blog
- Deliberations (Ron Lubensky’s blog)
- IAP2 USA Blog
- Campaign for Stronger Democracy blog
If you’re overwhelmed with having too many places and media to check for news, opportunities, and opinions in this burgeoning field, you may appreciate this one-email-that-links-to-everything option.
If you have a blog focused on dialogue and deliberation-type content, and you’re not sure I’ve added it to the page (and you’re an NCDD member), send me your blog’s title, link, and RSS feed so I can add it to the mix. Once you’re added, your new posts will appear on the page (with your blog title listed as the source), and our Feedburner subscribers will receive an email that includes the title, image and first paragraph of your post–with a link that goes directly to your post, not to the Facebook wall. Your posts will also appear on the news feeds of all 510 (and growing) of our Facebook fans.
