Our communications department is looking to give some voice to our student body and consequently we are creating a blog outlet for a few students to write on. I'm in the process of creating this blog section using Drupal and I'm feeling a little too generic when it comes to the layout and content of the sidebar and such.
So far I've got three page types: the main blog page (which aggregates all of the student blogs), the individual blogger pages, and the individual blog article pages. The main changes that might/could be on those pages would be what resides in a right sidebar. I've decided that we should have at least these items in the sidebar: a blogger profile, article archive, and maybe a "latest activity" block.
So my question to this esteemed community is: are there any examples of schools that have student bloggers? And does anybody have any tips about what should or should not be included in such a setup?
Thanks in advance!
