Survey Questions on Best Practices for Unitarian Universalist Blogging

The Best Practices for Unitarian Universalist (UU) Blogging report, published in August of 2008, features survey responses from leading bloggers who promote Unitarian Universalism.

We are eager to share insights and advice from additional Unitarian Universalist bloggers. If your blog focuses on and promotes Unitarian Universalism, please consider posting your own answers to the survey questions on your blog and then emailing pw_specialist @ uua.org with the URL of your completed survey. Links to completed surveys are listed on the Best Practices for UU Blogging page.
