How to labels posts, plus new resource tracker!

I'm excited about launching the new Spark Advocates blog!  It's going to be a great way for advocates to share their experiences with each other, and for others to learn about the community-led projects underway.

First of all, check the new tool for Advocates to keep track of good resources (articles, websites, maps, etc.)!  The link's over there in the side bar  =>

Also, we're planning to integrate blog posts into the main Spark MicroGrants site, so visitors will see the most recent updates in the Current Projects section.  That feature will be automatic, but for it to work it's important to follow some specific guidelines for applying labels to posts.  The labels we're using are as follows:

Project Labels:
  • Advocates
  • Bukomero-Animals
  • Karambi-Water
  • Huye-Economic
  • Ruhango-Electricity
  • Musanze-Food
  • Wanteete-Education
  • Kawempe-Sanitation
Content Labels:
  • Update
  • Background
  • Resources
  • Event
  • Fundraising
  • General

Each post should include 2 of these labels; one from each lists.  That way both content and project are identified (notice the labels at the bottom of this post)
