It Has Been A Rough Year

I am adding this additional chapter to my introduction, because after I initially wrote the introduction, it was very difficult to come back to it and try to make sense of all that I have experienced through the various stages of my life and the trials that I have endured or overcome.  I wish ...

"My First (real) Day on the Job Here at Story of My Life"

Greetings everyone! My name is Sam and I am welcoming all of you and introducing myself to you. I am the new Community Relations Director for Story of My Life. My first official day on the day is Monday, and I am VERY excited to be here. I am here to help you.

So what is my job here exactly? What is it that a "Community Relations Director" does? I am working on helping to build community within the site. We have some exciting intiatives that will drive these endeavors which we'll be rolling out throughout the year. My passion is building communities whether online or face to face. Having people - whether family, friends, colleagues, interest groups or even just admirers, I want to help facilitate communication among members to help people stay connected. My background is in non-profit entities and no charity group survives without building great community.

I will be commenting on your stories, helping people connect, managing some groups, and generally here to act as your cheerleader as you write and share stories with your family and friends (or the world if you choose!) and guide you through anything you might need.

For those of you who publish Stories publicly - whether through written Stories (text), Video, or Audio oral histories - we will also be reaching out into the online communities to showcase your stories and pictures and so on through popular social networking sites such as twitter and digg.

I am also here to help answer questions. Having a problem on the site? Confused about anything? Want to add a suggestion or feature to the site? Anything really bugging you that we can do better? Please feel free to contact me at any time. If I can't help you, someone here can!

You can follow us on twitter too at www.twitter.com/SOML

Welcome and interested in starting the group on facebook

Sam,
Thanks for leaving the comment on my Story page.  I was trying to link my story of my life to my facebook blog network, but it didn't work.  The widgets stayed but facebook can't identify them.

I would be happy to start a group in facebook for story of my life.  What information or link should I use?

This is an awesome application/program I can't wait to get into it more.

Sincerely,
Dot Wiggins (Dorothy Ann Wiggins on facebook)

I think there might be a FB group for SOML - let me double check that (there were some fake ones out there we know) and get you the link :)We look forward to helping you and reading (if you choose to share publicly) your stories and pictures.... ping me if anything else too any time!!

Facebook Group is built

On Facebook I started a Group "Story of My Life--Keep your story forever"  http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=47863478605&ref=mf 

It has the link to the login page for people to sign up and join the group.  Also promoted the purchase of the permanent storage.

Please let me know if you find out any information about getting the blogging network widget to work.
