Not an easy one, but when people see the community in action, it has a more profound impact.

And is we ever do shirts again, having the site address in large print on the back with a tag line would be a good one too


I agree completely.

From where we're at now though, baby steps to get there. Currently I feel like we're running a skeleton crew. :/

We should go back to poaching users from the RunningRoom forums, like in the good ole days.

There is a squash soup recipe?

I tried a whole new mix of spices which I naturally didn't record or measure, and by the time I could log in and post them I couldn't remember.

But it's sooo yummy.

I know I added some celery seed, coriander seed and a bit of chili pepper, along with cumin and a touch of curry, but I'm sure the was something else that was an odd choice but it escapes me.

For Dale's, maybe what we could do is tweet and discuss what you're already blogging in your blog, rather than re-invent the wheel... it would drive traffic to your existing blog but also generate discussion/traffic for us.


I did offer, but then later I doubted my ability to follow through-- I can't even keep up my log!

But I might be able to commit to a monthly topical post.

The "Frequently asked questions" section I mentioned would be better as not a blog but more as fixed content.

We tried that before and it didn't really work (remember we had a FAQ section? It died out).

Now we have to start using them regularly!

Do we have an Ottawa/Toronto volunteer? Someone who can cover the June m&g but also be an ongoing local ambassador for social media in Ontario?

Maybe we can use the "regram" app to re-post some instagram posts of our community members? That way IC and Eme can promote other regions at the same time? I'm not at enough events to be a local ambassador for the region.
