LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Unity Day photos! How cool are those?!?! Just featured the album and am about to stick them on the left side of csfreshink.com. Can't wait to run these in our photo spread next week! They will very, very likely be on our cover as well (again, next week)! :)

Unfortunately it's a bit tricky sometimes. Blogs and stories are pretty much interchangeable, but creating a story allows you to target a community, whereas creating a blog post does not. If you have a story about a Fountain Valley School student who is from the Powers area and you want to get the word out to the Fountain and Powers communities, make sure you are a member of both, then create a story *from each community* page by clicking "Write a Story" on each page. Then the story will be filed under the community and come up in the community's news stream. Weird, I know! :)
