Lucy Song, the Community Manager for Dragon Oath, writes this developer blog giving our readers an idea of just what it is that a Community Manager actually does.
Have you ever wondered what a Community Manager does all day? Now you need wonder no longer. I've put together this diary of a typical workday for your enlightenment and entertainment.9:45 a.m. – I wake to my alarm clock ringing… after it’s been going off for twenty minutes. I drag myself out of bed, regretting my late night of forum moderation and doing laundry. I will definitely not make my carpool on time.10:30 a.m. – I begin to drive to work. From my home in the East Bay, it will take me about an hour to get to the ChangYou office in Santa Clara. I blare music and write two different Dev Blogs in my head.11:30 a.m. – I’m already late enough, so I stop for coffee. This counts as lunch, and means that I can work eight hours today without interruption.12:00 p.m. – I get to work and begin writing this log, as a simple way to work in another Dev Blog post this week. I also check my e-mail, my forum messages, and my daily assigned tasks.
