Only cohort members who have been given Admin privileges can make adjustments to the site. Once we have all agreed on your site, those privileges will be pulled so changes to each other’s blogs can’t be made.
IS THIS A ONE PERSON SHOW?
You know better. What’s critical is that everyone in the cohort needs to work together as a team. This means coordinating with each other.
To that end. Before anyone makes a change, they need to communicate with the rest of the cohort so everyone is on the same page. This means that maybe compromises will need to be made.
Oh, and with all of these emails—you need to cc Don.
CAN WE DO ANYTHING WE WANT?Once again, you know better. You will have a lot of latitude but there are some things that we need to include (which Don will put on your site early on) and other things that we don’t want on the site. In particular, we all need to stay focused on the purpose of the site—which means that all of those cutesy things you may want to insert may take away from the reason the site exists.
As you might expect, Don has the final approval. The Blog Site is an extension of the ILC and will be viewed by gazillions of people on this planet and others. So—it needs to be perfect.
SHOULD WE REINVENT THE WHEEL?
Same answer. Take advantage of what Don has to say because he can steer you in the right direction. Knowing how Blogspot’s tools work can help.
