Blog Posting Guidelines
  • No spamming.
  • No adult content.
  • No posting malicious content (viruses, trojans, etc) or links to malicious content.
  • Debates are fine; rudeness and personal attacks are not.
  • We reserve the right to moderate/remove posts without warning.  We also reserve the right to ban bloggers who do not follow the posting guidelines.

Blog Posting Tips

  • Add a picture.  It grabs the reader's attention.  Don't have a camera?  Don't have time to take a picture?  Grab one from Flickr Creative Commons and cite the source at the bottom of your blog post (see the bottom of the page for an example of how to do this).
  • Keep a schedule.  Set aside a half hour every week (or month, or even every other month) to write a short post.
  • Keep up with the news.  A good way to get ideas is to follow current events (you can go to the LTCC website or Rafu Shimpo for news about Little Tokyo).
