Working on the diocesan newspaper and all of our social media venues is just another hat we each wear in addition to our "real" jobs. However, it has truly been a blast working with these folks. This group of people knows how to work hard and have fun while doing it. Furthermore, I believe that we have been producing some excellent work in regard to the diocesan newspaper. I will admit that working for the Church does teach one how to be versatile.
The Diocese of Cheyenne was not on social media when I arrived here eight and a half years ago. I was asked to get us started. With very little knowledge about social media at the time, I waded into unknown territories. My inexperience showed, but eventually I started gaining a little more knowledge and confidence about what I was doing. However, we really began to flourish when more people came on board with greater knowledge of the trends. Creating a team of people has greatly enhanced our endeavors. It has taken a while for us to grow, but we are making progress and increasing our outreach all across the diocese and beyond.
Matt, Maria, Denise, and Deacon Mike--thank you for sharing your gifts with the diocese. Thanks for the camaraderie while doing it.
