    • Good morning, I just got your comments via our site administrator. I am so glad you like the blog and I hope you have learned to do what you can to control your environment, be aware and prevent being a victim of crime. I can’t really suggest what type of platform to go with for your website, as I don’t have experience and Word Press was chosen for this web site by the decision-makers within APD and the City of Albuquerque. However, what I can offer you is to try to find your natural voice. I try to write as I would if I were having a one-on-one conversation with a concerned citizen. I have tried to inject humor, but I’m never really sure if it falls flat or hits the right note, since we don’t have body language, expressions, tone of voice and just typed words in this format. I also recommend building vocabulary through either some classes or another method. I am a member of the Pryor Career Track Training Rewards program and get access to unlimited training for a year for one price and have attended excellent live 8-hr seminars on Business Writing, Grammar and Punctuation, and related subjects and the instructors handed out lists of action words, expressive words, etc. that really helped me punch up my vocabulary and stop using the same words over and over again. I also log onto Grammar Girl web site occasionally to check grammar or get writing tips. I have an audience that is already interested in crime prevention or law enforcement and am always trying to build that audience to capture all ages and stages in life and I only have a short ‘headline’ on a post to do that. I am so glad you wrote; in my position with this role being thrust on me and not really in my wheelhouse, it’s been a learning experience and I don’t always know if my readers like what I have to say, so thank you. Good luck and pursue your dreams.
