Welcome to the New America The Right Way!!!
Yes, it’s the same old Hang-Out, but moved down the street to a new home!
Keep on reading for a little background as to the Why’s and Wherefore’s. But suffice it to say, this is the beginning of something great, and it is OUR home to set a spell and take a load off.
All the regular features are here: General Politics, Gardening, Recipes, and much more, and we’ve got things organized into their own pages (see the top menu of the web page) to keep things straight. And, we’ve got a lot of cool techie features, too, like: RSS feeds; interfaces to FaceBook, Twitter, Digg and more; e-mail subscription to Posts and Comments; a mobile format for cell phone users; AND, you can even comment via e-mail! What more could you possibly want? (OK, we have polls and a whole bunch of other stuff, too — but first we have to figure out how to work them. ;-))
So stop by regularly and give it a test drive. You may like what you see.
Welcome to to the new blog!!! You must have a million questions so let’s get at it.
Why another blog? And why now?
Well, it’s been a hard decision, but a considered and measured one. We believe the move to our new digs will insure long term security for our group, with no interruptions in access. We’ve been together an amazingly long time, and at this juncture it’s a good idea and bet to seize on the opportunity to stay that way and continue. We’ve grown up!
From time to time in our old home we’ve had to get used to new features, title changes, frequency of new threads posted At the same time, other things have remained the same: long-time posters and opinions and personalities and features we’ve grown used to. We’ve all improved greatly in our use of the internet…some using so many other sites besides our old place & even posting on other sites.
So those are some important points to remember as we make this move. We can do it!
Just a few more thought and details
lysie and I will act as moderators, continuing, too, in our familiar thread-posting roles.
There IS a transition plan, and there WILL be a transition phase. We’ll do our best to make it all happen in an efficient and clear way, And questions will be answered as best as we can.
We’re indebted to Bitwhacker for setting us up so nicely and patiently. At various times in the process, I’ve thought of him as the parent running beside us on our training bicycles, and as a fitness coach urging us on…keeping us on track! It’s been challenging, but in a fun way, and for me a relief to be fully committed to our future together.
I’m pretty sure most of us will continue to use our old site. I know I will enjoy visiting our previous site for news and views! But in a short while this will be ATRW’s sole home on the web.
So….staying positive & forward-looking,
Yours in freedom,
lysie, Molly, & Bitwhacker
