In searching for an appropriate system for communication and reporting amongst a team of fifty people working across twenty-five countries, the author considered introducing blogs. To find out more about the tool, she posed a question to the KM4Dev community, and received a host of responses on the different platforms, their pros and cons. This edition of the community notes summarizes the outcomes of this discussion thread, and identifies that while there is no silver bullet solution, asking a community for advice can reap benefits which a simple web search would not have provided.
