Weekly Spotlights

So, I just checked out the Class of 97's blog, and they post updates on people. I thought it would be fun to do a weekly spotlight of someone. You could send me some pics of yourself or your family, and a little paragraph of what you're up to, and I'll post it on here. I'm not sure how to decide who the spotlight should be, if I should just pick someone, or what. Any ideas?

Last Names?

What is your opinion on the "Fellow Patriots" link on the right side? Would you like me to include last names or just initials? I originally thought initials just for privacy reasons. My husband is always telling me not to put my full name on the internet, but then again, I guess people can click on my blog and find my full name anyway. What do you think? Would you feel comfortable if I added full last names? Or should I just title it with the name of your blog? Let me know.

Spread the Word!

Please email your friends, post this blog on your blog, and try to spread the word so people find this place. We have one year to contact EVERYONE for the reunion. Hopefully this will spread by word of mouth or word of email or word of blog or word of facebook or whatever else is out there, and eventually everyone will find us.

Mandi - I think the idea of doing a facebook page is a good idea also. I'll work on that next. I don't know how to navigate facebook as well as blogs, but I do know how to start one (I have one).

"Fellow Patriots" link - Some people have "private" blogs which means you have to be invited to look at them. You can email the address in parentheses next to their name to ask to be invited :)

What do you think?

Feel free to tell me what you think of the blog, and any ideas you might have about it. Just click on "comments" below and it will allow you to post your thoughts. Thanks!

"Fellow Patriots" sidebar

If you have a personal blog or facebook page or myspace page or whatever it may be that you would like to share, send me the address/link and I will post it on the side under "Fellow Patriots". I will title it with your first name and last name initial (I will use your maiden name for the sake of high school years) and people can click on it to see what you're up to. It should be fun to see who we can catch up with.


Thanks! ~ Amber
