Hello Everyone! Country Chronicles has been reborn as a blog: http://countrychronicles.blogspot.com. Everyone is invited to read and/or join the blog. For those of you who have not heard of or used a blog, it is fairly simple. A blog is an on line version of a message board that allows folks to share messages and information almost immediately.
On a blog you can: Read the messages that others have posted; Post responses to messages that you have read; Post a brand new message. (To respond to an article in the blog or to post your own message, you will need to set up a user account. I personally have not noticed any new spam emails from setting up my username/ password.
If you would like to post to the blog and need help in setting up your user name/ password, drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to help you with your set up or can set up your log in for you). Mountainair has many wonderful people and positive things that happen here every day. Read about Mountainair or share your Mountainair experiences (good & bad) at http://countrychronicles.blogspot.com.
If you like what you see, please share the blog with others - Everyone Is Welcome!
You can also read George's Welcome message at on her "new Country Chronicles" blog. It sounds as though she is setting up her blog to allow not just comments but guest posting as well. Reviewing recent posts, I have to admit she is keeping us better up to date than I do when it comes to public service announcements and news from town hall and about town / community services: police, fire department, town council agendas, blood drive, visiting dignitaries, public meetings and so forth.
It's win-win: the more blogs, MySpace pages, web pages and such, the stronger and better ranked Mountainair's overall web presence. From a purely personal even selfish persepctive, the better Kathleen covers the arts and arts council doings (not just the latter!) and the better George covers community news and information, the more time I have to go off on tangents that interest me and explore out of the box ideas with Dennis. The more everyone participates and contributes, the better the coverage and communication and - again not to put too fine a point on it - the stronger & more positive a presence Mountainair presents both virtually and in the real world.
