    I like the first logo much better. It seems complete whereas the second one is missing something. Like half the spokes on a wheel were left off. Just not fulfilling to me.

    Yes, it is something that I'd still like to do. Like the directory idea, I didn't set it up because I wasn't sure if we'd have enough people interested to warrant it.

    You'll never know until you try it. Most of us seem to be a verbal bunch. It could be great fun.

    Right, Bess...most of us are a verbal bunch, but I also use nouns, adjectives, and adverbs in my posts.

    Good afternoon to all-

    Ken- Is this idea still on the burner? I would be very interested in taking part both as a contributor or helping with editing. I've done a good bit of professional editing work through the years. If you are still taking submissions, how would you like me to send material to you?

    many thanks- Ed

    I could take it off the back burner. I was worried that I wouldn't have enough people submitting enough stuff to make it viable. There has to be a continual flow of new stuff or it just stagnates, and I knew that this wasn't something that I could do by myself, as I have tried keeping up a blog a couple of times.

    My email is kenanderson@kenanderson.net but, to be honest, I lose a lot of stuff that comes to me via email because more than 90% of what I get is spam. I don't check my email regularly. If you're on Facebook, you could contact me there.

    I think I may already have mentioned my interest in this Ken. Always had a gift of the gab and can use some part time remuneration.

    I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. You don't want any stories based on current events at all?

    In 1972 I had a political satire column in the county weekly for several months. I was 20. It was amazing to begin to be recognized on the street from the newspaper photo. I'm a little vague on the kind of article you want, but I might give it a try.

    I have been journaling for years. The idea of writing some stories sounds very interesting. I have to do some thinking about what to write. I am just making a note here on the forum that I intend to write something. Just doing that makes it a commitment for me. More to come from me.

    Hi Ken,

    Are you still accepting articles?

    I don't have Facebook either, but this does sound like an interesting opportunity.
