How-To Roundup: BlueBroward Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Some of the instructions here are outdated. For updated instructions, see the how-to category on the blog.

BlueBroward.org has always had a big emphasis on self-service. That’s because it’s a volunteer project with no budget or staff, meant to be maintained for the community by the community. At times, I do post items people send to me by email, particularly if they’re not regular contributors. But the best way to make sure something gets posted is to do it yourself. Sometimes, when those email notices come in, I either don’t see them or I’m busy with other things like chasing paying work.

Any BlueBroward.org member can post an event, campaign listing, or blog entry. Don’t get hung up on the word “blog” – you don’t have to transform yourself into a regular blogger. It’s just an easy way for you to share your opinions, news, photos, and candidate endorsements.

When you log in, you should see Post a Campaign Listing as one of the first options on the welcome screen or “Dashboard.” Click there to display the data entry form.

How to Share/Delegate Editing Rights for a Campaign, Club, or Organization
BlueBroward allows officers and representatives of Democratic clubs, allied groups, and campaigns to appoint multiple editors for their event listings and related information. For example, both the president and the secretary of a club could have editing rights on this system. A candidate might create a campaign profile but then allow a campaign manager to also […]

How To Post to the BlueBroward Blog
Every BlueBroward member is invited to share opinions, criticisms, candidate endorsements, and tips for more effective organizing on the BlueBroward Community Blog, either regularly or occasionally.
