Communities blooming online

Posted on: 03/07/2009

It is time for the judging of Cumbria in Bloom and my village is going all out to get ready for the judges, as are many others. But there are other communities forming online that are rallying behind their virtual viallages as well. Both show commitment and people joining forces for a common good. Here are some links to local communities online.

Partnerships Online offers a plain language explanation of the different types of virtual communities you can create. Great place to start.

The FreshNetworks blog offers insights into how having a community blog can generate information to help you plan, assess, change your community by looking at feedback, comments, votes, forums. It’s a helpful blog item.

Media websites are all getting local community correspondents to generate local news, and why not? Visit The NorthWest Evening Mail and The Westmorland Gazette community news sections for examples.

The Go is another great example of a website for the community.

Landscape gardeners in the UK have created an online community, now attracting members from abroad, using social networking platform Ning.

The examples are like an English garden in bloom – colourful, varied, changing, and a wonderful sight.
