3 Ateb i ““Press release as blog post” drives me mad”

  1. I often put press releases on our Wrecsam Plaid blog, but whereas in a press release you would include “Notes to the editor” as a footnote, in the blog posting you try to link to relevant background info.

    I don’t often link to the main Plaid website for the fuller picture – something we should do more often, so you’ve got one person thinking at least!

    What I would say as well is that Syniadau’s original posting on this evolved as a result of comments – as do many good blog postings. So it’s important that the interactive element is encouraged so that someone not content with the original press release challenges the politicians to deliver on the detail.

  2. @Huw Efallai ond mae pawb yn gallu adrodd felly dylen ni disgwyl “newyddion” manwl o’r pleidiau.

    @marc Good observation about Syniadau. I think a party can start doing this without any new software or platforms. It means being a bit less opaque about thought processes. The way MH at Syniadau admitted his oversight in a clear update to the post – rather than do some revisionism – is a perfect example. It’s one of the reasons he’s one of the most knowledgeable political bloggers in Wales. It’s much easier to do this as an individual rather than a faceless party website which purports to represent thousands of people.
