6.4 Blogs

A blog is the internet version of a personal letter. It provides an opportunity to tell anecdotes that give an intimate picture of what it is like to deal with the emergency and what it is like to be on the country team. Blogs and daily journals by CARE staff involved in emergencies are a popular way of connecting the public with emergency work. This is extremely useful for member websites, news outlets such as the Huffington Post and CNN iReport, and blogging sites. Blogs should be accompanied by photographs.
