4th Glasgow Scout Group Web Site

Stumble Upon Toolbar
It's been awhile since I wrote on the topic of ScoutBlogs.  I recently came across a blog cluster setup by the 4th Glasgow Scout Group.  The reason I'd like to bring your attention to it is that the 4th has put together a first class scout web site using what largely looks like free social networking tools and free hosting.
  • The blogs are hosted by Google (Blogger) and are likely classified as not-for-profit
  • Each section has it's own blog on blogger (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Leaders)
  • There is a single look and feel to the site - all sections are tied together in a common header and transition is seamless.
  • They take advantage of other free tools like Google Calendars to showcase events and gmail for communication
Using the same concept of a blog cluster a group could even have some private sections.

Well done 4th!

Check them out at The 4th Glasgow Scout Group.
And check out my other ScoutBlogs and ScoutReach articles.

I just have one question for the 4th, what character in the Jungle Book is known as SPUD?   :)
