Help Wanted: Blog

Everyone has skills. Everyone has talents. Everyone has a desire to make their children happy. (I mean, mostly. Right?)

Anywho, if happiness comes in the form of the marching band, then we must all pitch in to make every season great.

This is part of a series giving details on how the parents, guardians, family, and friends of the marvelous marchers of the Spirit of Woodlan can support the band.

When the registration form arrives at the beginning of the season, there could some serious WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO thoughts from staring at the "Band Booster Committee" page. But have no fear. We're all in this together.

And we have a pretty darn good time.

Let's talk the blog. Yes, this bloggity bloggy blog. I know it's not on the "committee" page, maybe because it's fairly new.

At the end of the 2017 season, I was asked to "take over the blog". I didn't even know we had a blog! And I had a couple questions...

Could I post whatever I wanted?

Could I post whenever I wanted?

The answers were yes, so I accepted the title of Band-Mom-Blogger.

However, this next season (2020) will be my last. I got it this year, have no fear!


Hey! Don't run. Just listen.


No experience necessary.

Like to share all your thoughts? Like to ramble and say strange things? Like to keep people informed? Like to scream about how impressed you are with the Spirit of Woodlan?

Then you can do this job.

One person or a team. Either would work! Take turns writing or co-write each post.

Rules? There are no rules. I blogged when I wanted, about what I wanted. I picked a day of the week, to keep myself focused, and, each week, chose something that stood out. Whether it was the competition, something my daughter said, the music, the drill, the people, the theme of the show, information, or an experience, I took an idea and wrote fun words. To spread the band joy! BECAUSE WHY NOT

The blog is a way to bring everyone together. To share something no one else noticed. To offer your own experiences. To open up the inner workings of being a part of a marching band, so everyone can enjoy. As the musicians come and go, the parents also cycle through, each with something they can add to the band. Think you want to blog? It's not scary, I promise.
