Where Have I Been?
I realized the other day that this blog has been pretty quiet recently. I’ve been posting stuff to my other blog, the reviews blog has kept up a steady pace of stuff, but this blog has been a little slow. Given that, I thought it’d be a good time to let you know how things have been going over on the Survivor Network site, since that is part of the reason why things have quieted around here!
In a nutshell, that group has had pretty good growth for something that’s only existed for a few months! There are currently 161 members, and there have been a number of really good discussions, ranging from new member introductions to questions about parenting and blog posts with survivor stories and insights about self injury and many, many more!
There’s also 4 sub groups now, and I’m planning on doing some experimenting with the new chat feature that Ning has implemented. There’s been so much going on over there, I can barely keep up with it all!
Overall, the response has been awesome, the group has been so supportive of each other, and of me as I try and work behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly. There have been a few growing pains, but it’s all been well worth it so far. I hope that all of you, whether you are Survivors, or a survivor’s supporter (we have a few of those over there as well), will consider joining, taking a look around, and jumping in with your own contributions!
I know you’re busy, Mike. But, I am so glad you started up the Child Abuse Survivor Network. Good work! Hey, and don’t get to busy that you forget to submit something for the next Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) 😉
