Description

Hi Scott,

Can you do a news blog or codex blog or other post that draws together some of our hero slides and documentation and puts them together into a list of things one can do when building a new community / blog / group resource on the Commons? Here is a starting point:

1. Google Analytics
Get GA reports for your Commons blog mailed to you on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis (note: may not work with domain-mapped blogs)
http://news.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2012/06/23/introducing-google-analytics-for-your-blog/

2. Custom cuny.is shortlinks
Create a custom cuny.is shortlink for your blog or group

3. Site Newsletters
Use Mailpoet to create attractive newsletters derived from your blog content

4. Domain Mapping on the Commons
Map a custom domain to your Commons blog

5. Use the Commons as a Conference Hub
With free websites, domain mapping, and tools to facilitate publicity, planning and registration, you can create a hub to post agendas, discuss issues, aggregate tweets, live-stream presentations, share archives, and keep the conversation going.

6. Invite People to your group

7. Twitter Page
Discover CUNY-related tweets and twitter-users
