U Tracking U

To find/track news and blog reports about your association, certain issues, your blog, and you ... there's a service on Google to monitor and deliver that info to you by email ... Google Alerts.

Go to Google Alerts, type in each topic to monitor - separately - (I use my name, association name, subsidiaries, president's name, legislative issues, blog name). Select frequency -- as-happens, daily or weekly -- and you'll get email if something found that includes words. Can also track family members, friends, enemies, sports team, area of interest. If you have common name, may be more than you want. Won't get email alert when nothing found in frequency selected.

And it's free. A lot easier than reading every online newspaper and blog in the world.
