Message to readers: More online interactivity for 2023
Dear readers, the Aylmer Bulletin is revving up our social media into full force! If you are not already following us on Facebook (@BulletinAylmer) and Instagram (@BulletinAylmer), please consider doing so. We are posting new and exciting content throughout the week that you won’t want to miss. And be sure to check out our stories, accessed on both Facebook and Instagram by clicking our profile photo—but don’t wait too long, because they disappear after 24 hours.
In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a number of hashtags that we hope the public will engage with. To name a few: #ViveAylmer, #HistoireVivanteAylmer, #HeritageAylmer, #NatureAylmer, #BouffeAylmer, and more. When you click on any of these hashtag hyperlinks, they will bring you to a collection of posts that have used that same hashtag. Our aim is to utilize the hashtag function as a nexus for sharing our communal experience of Aylmer and as a means for organizing photo and video documentation of Aylmer, what we envision as the living history of Aylmer. The original hashtags used by the Aylmer Bulletin continue to be active; use them to get a broad view of all things Aylmer: #BulletinAylmer, #AylmerQuebec.
To start us off, we have created the hashtag #ViveAylmer. The concept is simple: film yourself doing a gesture, big or small, that makes a positive difference for those around you. The options are endless, but to name a few: pick up a piece of trash from the road or sidewalk, help a turtle cross the street, or shovel your neighbour’s driveway. After filming, upload, and don’t forget to tag us (@BulletinAylmer) in your post.
To get the conversation started, please feel free to direct message us or comment on any of our posts. And if you have any questions or requests of what you’d like to see more of from us, we’d love to hear from you. Finally, we ask that you please spread the word by liking, sharing, commenting, and telling your friends and family about us. Writing letters to the editor for print continue to be a highly effective method to start broad conversations: firstname.lastname@example.org. À bientôt!
