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 
 http://codex.commons.gc.cuny.edu/cuny-url-shortener/  

 *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 
 http://codex.commons.gc.cuny.edu/domain-mapping-commons/ 

 *5. *6. 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.
