Welcome to the CSMA blog. We’re glad to have you here. In the coming months, and years, we hope this space will grow into a fertile garden of discourse. By which I mean, we hope that you will stick around and chime in every now and then.
If this blog will have anything remotely close to a regular host, it will be me. I’m Greg, the still-pretty-new Events and Sponsorship Officer here at the school. Hi! I have been a member of the CSMA team for just about two months to the day, during which time I’ve already overseen one giant step into the social media arena– the launch of CSMA’s Twitter feed. Next up? This blog!
This space will serve as a repository for many forms of content, and mine won’t be the only voice on the blog. Expect to read posts from school staff and faculty concerning all aspects of life at CSMA, as well as guest-blogs from members of our community. Interspersed with content related to music, art, and philanthropy you will find interviews with some pretty fascinating people, opinions on all manner of topics, and, of course, as I am the in-house events person, information from me about upcoming events we’re hosting and reminiscences of recent soirees.
This space is also about you the reader. More than any other social media forum, a blog allows the community to speak and be heard. Comment regarding anything on your mind, be it specific to the post or related to the school in a more abstract way. Share your own opinions about the topic at hand, offer feedback about CSMA, ask questions, or just chime in and say hello. This is your space as much as it is ours, and we’re really only here to break down barriers and facilitate conversation.
So there it is, the inaugural post. The ice has been broken, the ribbon cut; all that is left is for you to make your voice heard, so please don’t be shy. And even if you don’t comment, be sure to check in again soon, for there is plenty more to come. In my next post, I’m going to get all technical as I explain some of the mechanics of the site, and I know you’ll want to be here for that.
