Join, Follow, Introductions

Hello and welcome to the adult literacy @ VCU blog!  This is a space to connect with colleagues, share ideas, seek feedback, or simply say hello.  It's whatever we want it to be.  Unlike a typical blog, all followers of this blog will have full author privileges.  This means all blog members can  start new conversations (posts) as well as comment on each others' postings.  In this way, our blog is a co-op that belongs to all.  Has anyone tried this before? You'll have to post and tell us about your experience.

In order to get started, please take a moment to "join" (in the right margin).  Once you join, we will upgrade you to blog "author" and you can begin posting.  You will need a google account to participate, and a thumbnail pic is always a nice way to add to your blogger profile. 

To stay connected, you can "follow by email" (in the right margin).  When you follow, you will receive a daily email when there is blog activity.  The email will contain a link that brings you right back here to read and post. It's very convenient.

Thanks so much for taking the time to join and follow!  You will hear from us shortly.  In the meantime, please comment to this post and introduce yourself to the group.

Kristin, JG, Susan, & Bill
