Social Media and Marketing Team: Mouthy Poets Blog Protocol.

15 Mar

When a blog is used as often and by as many people as this one is, consistency can be difficult to maintain.

It is for this reason that the Social Media and Marketing team have cooked up this set of rules/conventions/guidelines, to help make the Mouthy Poets blog be all it can be.



The Mouthy Poets Blog Protocol:


There are so many signs of life inhabiting the inner and outer reaches of the Mouthiverse that it is almost impossible to deduce the identity of the author based on content alone. 
For this reason, the FIRST thing anyone posting should type before even thinking about doing anything else is THEIR NAME.


The blog serves as a sharing space for poems in the lead up to Mouthy Poets shows, so when you’ve let everyone know who is posting, it’s important that you state what for. 

Is this a draft of a poem for a show? If so, what show? Is this a 1st, 2nd or final draft?

This kind of clarity will help things run smoother and hopefully make leaving feedback on poems easier, as all will be able to find the latest drafts and help each other out.


Tagging is a great means of making the blog and the posts on it more easy to find on the web.

So whenever you post something on the blog be sure to attach relevant tags to the post.

When you create a new post on WordPress, the tag box is just under where you put the text.

It says ‘Tags (optional, comma separated)’. And on every post, regardless of content, it’d be great if you could tag ‘Mouthy Poets, poetry, Nottingham, spoken word, writing’ along with any other words or phrases relevant to your post. 

For example, the tags attached to this post are as follows: ‘Mouthy Poets, poetry, Nottingham, spoken word, writing, protocol, blogging, tagging, progression, inevitable world domination, MouthyLyf’.


If we all stick to this protocol, the blog will not only look better and more organised, but it will be more easily decipherable for us when it gets round to show time.
