Create a professional blog:

The College offers one blogging platform right now: https://citc.ca.uky.edu/users/. From here you could create a blog, and you'd need to look into the documentation on that site to see how multiple users would access it, how you can customize the design, etc. Alternatively, you could try an externally hosted blogging platform such as wordpress.com, blogger.com, or tumblr.com.

We are planning to include blogging in the next major version of the website software we will be using to create sites for the College.
Blogs follow the same guidelines as social media and web standards.
