The GOEMP Blog has been busy over the last 8 months!
We have been lucky to have the privilege to publish many excellent posts from established and emerging museum professionals across the province of Ontario since the Blog was launched at the beginning of June 2017. From a major collections re-org project to tips on landing a museum job to the Kingston Penitentiary Tour, the topics of each post has been wildly different from the rest. A lot of ground has been covered, and we know there is much more that will be in the future.
The Blog isn’t going anywhere. It’s an important resource and professional development opportunity for EMPs, and we want to ensure there is always a platform for the diverse perspectives offered by the EMP community.
However, the GOEMP Committee has experienced a slow-down in Blog post submissions lately. And that’s perfectly okay – we have come up with a plan.
We will be switching from a bi-weekly posting schedule to an on-demand one. This means that whenever we get a Blog post submission, after it is reviewed and edited, it will be published straight away if there are no more submissions ahead of it. If we receive more than one at a time, we will published them at our discretion and temporarily return to the bi-weekly posting schedule until we run out of content once more.
Heads up: we’re going to be tweaking the Blog Guidelines in the coming weeks to open up topic possibilities to anybody interested in writing a post to submit. We want to make sure they’re as flexible as possible to make the writing and submission process more accessible and easy for everyone.
If you have any questions / comments / concerns, we’d be glad to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact form on our website (feel free to address your message to Madeline, Communications Chair of the GOEMP Committee) and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
And of course, please always feel welcome to submit content! We’re always eager to read anything and everything sent our way.
