With wordpress and I guess other blogging services,Â you create a
post that is also posted to social media,l e-mail etc,Â is it

reason for using text messaging is to get urgent updates to
the programme out to young people. Normally we would be

check the website,Â and miss something then they can blame
Simple putting something like
Event details are subject to change,ÂÂ please check the website
before making a special journey.Â The latest news will always be
posted on the blog and also sent to (list social media services).
or something to the effect where you put the ball in their court.
