Websites are the new business card. Think about what you would put on a business card -- name, complete address, phone number, email address, web address, and field of interest/business. Websites are very easy to put up these days. My granddaughters are learning how to do this in elementary school!!!! A repeated question to new communities posting on this list has been "What state are you in?" It's almost a running joke that communities think everyone knows Main Street is in Springfield and what state Springfield is in. I once visited a cohousing site and could not figure out what _continent_ it was on. There was a picture of a field with mountains in the background. It could have been any one of three continents that I was familiar with and I'm totally not a world traveller. It turned out to be in Australia. And list yourself on the Cohousing.org site as "forming" right away. Sharon ---- Sharon Villines, Washington DC "The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any..."
