Be a Guest Author for Connect: Community Management

Do you have a good story, some hard-won best practices, or some tips and tricks to help others in their community management pursuits? We crave your prose for February Connect’s Community Management theme!

Cats that Webchick is herding

Last year, the Community Management edition of Connect monthly rocked. Guest authors shared thoughtful articles about online harassment, tips for better online Board communication, best practices for volunteer management, and much more.

What community or communities are you engaging? What have you learned through your mission-based work that you are willing to share?

Connect articles generally include the following (you can check out our guidelines and monthly themes here):

  • 800-1,200 words
  • At least one evocative image that you either own rights to or are under Creative Commons license
  • 2-3 sentence bio
  • Profile photo

Kindly note that Connect articles are about ideas, not products or services.

If you have an idea for a guest article, please email me and let me know! The deadline for February Connect articles is January 21.

And thanks to all you wonderful community managers!
