When I created all those Advent Calendars ten years ago I used Dreamweaver and the site was static. Community members communicated using Yahoo groups. The interactive nature of Web 2 has changed all of this and now it is possible to comment on the gallery images as they go up. Lori Gloyd has been one of the first out of the starting blocks this year. She remembers one April day, back in 2006, when she stumbled upon Soul Food and recalls how she began blogging. Lori really was one of the invaluable members of the Soul Food community. Her enthusiasm was contagious, he work exemplary and she was always supportive of other community members. Do take the time to check out Pelican’s Perch, the site which she created during those heady Soul Food days.
There will be lots of activities provided. Obviously not everything will appeal. However, I would love to see folk engaging here and posting any feedback on this site as well as on Facebook.
