Our Own Newbie’s Introduction to Blogging

So what is this site and how do you blog?

Thank you to everyone who has viewed or participated in our blog. It seems to be taking flight pretty well. I was thinking that it is quite likely that most of our credit union membership is like myself in that they are new to blogging and may not understand exactly how to do it. This is sort of like an online version of our newsletter except that it’s interactive, meaning readers can easily share their own input on topics. Kind of like a discussion forum. To make a comment just click on the “comments” link at the bottom of the article you wish to comment on. Your name and email address are required to post a comment. Your comment might not post immediately. During business days it’s faster than off hours.

In our initial post “Welcome, PCU to the world of blogging!” it was stated,

“I hope that this forum will become a place that fosters the cooperative, “people helping people” attitude that has driven Piedmont Credit Union since its creation.”

I would appreciate your help in keeping myself and other contributors and commenters accountable to that goal. So here are a few things to consider when you leave a comment. Etiquette if you will.

  1. This site is not our main website and is not secured by any type of login/password. Your comments may be read by anyone in the world. Just treat it like you would any other public place. You wouldn’t shout out your account number to other people standing in our parking lot? Likewise, this site is just another public place for our credit union and our community to interact.
  2. Give credit where credit is due. If you quote someone else, convey that somehow.
  3. Please be considerate of others when you post. This site should always remain G-rated or better. So please abstain from profanity, vulgarity, or other inappropriate content. Again, it’s like any public place. Such comments or posts will be blocked, removed, or edited.(Any edits will be noted)

Please take a few minutes to browse through our archives(bottom right of page). There is also a set of categories for quick navigation. Thank you so much to all our members, employees, volunteers, and friends who work together to make our credit union something very special!

    Here is an example of a comment. If you should comment, your email address will remain private and un-published. The email is only so that the blog owner can contact you privately if needed. (not for marketing purposes) If you have a website you may leave that and there will be a link to it by clicking on your name.
