How to: Blog for ONE Campus

We want posts from YOU on our blog! We strongly encourage ONE students to guest-write and submit blog posts to be published on the ONE blog. This is a great way to highlight the important work students are doing in the fight against extreme poverty, and to encourage others to get involved. Your content strengthens the ONE blog—and our organization. Please make sure to pitch your blog idea to the ONE Campus team before writing.

BEST PRACTICES TO CONSIDER:

Some additional things to remember:

  • Blog posts should not be longer than 750 words.
  • Blog posts should come with hi-res photos, 600 x 600 pixels
  • Photos should come with complete captions and photo credits.
  • Include a “call to action” for a relevant action on ONE’s action page or something that pertains to a current ONE Campus action.
  • GIF’s are a great component to any blog!

Here’s How:

1) Decide what to write about and pitch your idea. Writing about a recent event your ONE chapter hosted, a reflection you have about your work with ONE, or an experience you had that’s relevant to ONE’s work can all make good blog post topics.  Then contact your ONE Campus Manager and tell them what you want to write about.

2) When you get the green light from the ONE Campus Manager, write your post. See below for tips on what makes a good blog post

3) Email your blog post to your ONE Campus Manager.  Make sure it includes photos (ideally larger than 600 pixels), hyperlinks, and captions.  Then it will be published on the ONE Campus blog pending the editorial calendar.

KEEP IT SHORT

Internet users don’t read all the words on the page. When creating content for the ONE blog, it’s important to make sure that the most important information is conveyed in the first two paragraphs or text blocks.

When coming up with a theme for a blog post, make sure it makes you say “yes” to the following questions:

1) Would I open this if I saw the subject line on a  website?

2) Does the blog post have a clear purpose?

3) Does the first sentence make me want to keep reading?

4) Is there an image that makes me want to click it?

5) Would I share this content with a friend?
