Cool. If you can list my blog: Epiphanettes . Blog is kind of an everything-including-the-kitchen-sink thing. I deal with writing and communications, as well as personal stuff and some current events when they’re obvious enough to upset me. Relatively good readership, from what I can deduce.

Also, let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you with the administration of all this new stuff.  Have excellent holidays and thanks again for setting this group up!  thierry

Subject: [writers-499] Group Activity in Response to 12/19 Meeting


Great meeting last night with some really good ideas and suggestions for how to help the group keep moving forward.  Thanks to all who participated - in person, or on the boards and through email!

So in response to some of the discussion items here are a few of the actions we've taken this morning.


1) Purged 100+ inactive/unpaid members.  (After all, must make room for all the Resolution Writers who are coming.)  ;-)

2) Confirmed the auto-message to new members has current information.

3) All new members are asked to provide a brief introduction and to answer the question: "What are you writing or interested in writing?"  It is now mandatory.(It's always been optional - no more.  You may want to take this opportunity to ensure your profile is up to date.  And please do put a picture or at least a cartoon likeness of yourself up.  It's helpful, welcoming, etc.)

4) Created a blank page for Members to list their website and blog.  I don't see a way to make it its own TAB on the site.  But if you click the tab PAGES, you'll see it's there.  At the moment, only I can edit the page.  We may change that.  But for now...please send me via email, your blog or author's web address and give a 10 word description of what it is.  For example "Author site." or "Blog About Ethnic Restaurants." That sort of thing.  I'll try to organize it simply alphabetically by member's last name.


That's it for now...need to get back to work--11 days to meet my deadline.


Thanks again.
