Hicks Car Works is an unofficial blog too yet it is written by museum volunteers about museum activities at IRM.

Not debating the quality of the content... But if it is a blog written by museum volunteers, about the museum activities, then I would just drop the "unofficial" part. If it's so unofficial, why is there a link to it from the CTM web site?
Excellent point, Tim! Someone else does it, so it must be right!
Tim, I'm trying to help you out here. I work in marketing and advertising, plus I volunteer with several railroad preservation groups out here. You obviously think I am picking on you, therefore, my advice is falling on deaf ears. Please understand that words have meaning, and that tacking "unofficial" onto something that appears to be the primary information source about your organization appears to send conflicted messages, never mind that there are easier ways to include blog postings into a web site seamlessly so you don't have "updates" coming from so many different sources.
It's just free advice, Tim. No harm, no foul if you don't agree with it.
