I don't get here as often as I'd like to. Sometimes it's in the middle of the night before I go to bed. I lurk about reading various posts. I'm trying to get here more often. I like this so much better than FB.

Glad you like us better than Facebook, Sandpiper.

NABBW does have a Facebook page, but it's kind of "in flux" right now because I don't have admin status. Which means I have no control on what gets posted where.

I am trying to work with Dotsie to get admin status - but it's sort of "the blind leading the blind."

I'll keep everyone posted on that process proceeds. Meanwhile, I think we have a good thing going on here...

This site seems to have more depth as far as emotions and everyday life goes. IMHO. I love it here. And I love the moral and emotional support. That is so nice to have!!!

It's always been this way jabber. We have lost alot of women over time but keep gaining new ones. Then there are "we women" who have never left since joining/.

I won't be going onto Facebook. Life is getting busy. Besides people who I know well don't use FB either. So what's the point for me?

People talk about sharing photos, etc. That's nice but some of my siblings lead very busy lives with paid jobs and young children. They have no time to FB with photos (when they get around to unloading their digital photos) vs. spending quality time with their families.

Besides sharing photos is um...1-3 times per year in our family.

I want to express my appreciation to Anne who stated the need for us to only link to legitimate, verifiable information sources. (This was some stuff posted by "charlotte".)

It seriously points out how we and younger generations must learn/sharpen our information literacy skills. What criteria are we using to assess, select and recommend information sources from the web.

My advice is:
*who is the author, their credentials and expertise/formal training. Their organizational links.
*does the referenced organization offer a mailing address, phone number. How long have they been in business?
*do they have a business license, are they listed in local phone directories.
*Any of their staff belong to professional organizations, are they active in them?
*Do they list associated non-profit and govn't orgnanizations?
*Do they understand the law as it relates to their industry?

Etc. This is stuff teachers and librarians are trying to cultivate in the next generations.

Hi, I am new to NABBW. I just retired from teaching this past year, so am looking forward to enjoying my time. I am excited to get to know the women in this organization. I am not real tech savy in social media, so hope I learn some.

Welcome, Kathy A!

We're glad to have you join us! Posting to the forum is pretty easy to manage. We just have a couple of rules, which are posted at the front of the site.

Other than that, we hope you'll explore the topics we've been discussing and add your "two cents worth" wherever and whenever you feel like you'd like to joint the conversation. And, we'd be delighted if you become one of us "regulars" who drop in every day... (Though there's no pressure to do that, of course.)
