Stepping down as FOPP Clerk of the month
I have actually been clerk of the month for three months since, until now there was no one willing to take over. Being totally honest that makes me kind of sad. when FOPP was started by SuffolkJason it was supposed to be about the most active members of the site working together to build up content and promote the site as well as helping out new members here. The idea was that a different member would take on the role of clerk of the month each month and sort of put their own spin on how exactly the group accomplishes these goals.
I do believe that some FOPP members are still the most active members here, although there are many who have long since disappeared. I hope that AliCanary can reinvigorate the group to become more active in a way I wasn't able to.
On a personal note, I plan to do more to promote the site. I currently promote some of my articles on a regular basis through automated tweeting, but I don't do much to actually encourage people to come here and write. That is my personal goal for the month of March.
First off I invite you to read my explanatory post here: http://www.personapaper.com/article/17425-so-what-exactly-is-fopp-answers-here and this one from our founding member SuffolkJason http://www.personapaper.com/article/10776-friends-of-persona-paper---the-launch
In case you need a reminder, the goals of the FOPP challenge are:
1. Visit Persona Paper daily
2. Spend at least 15 minutes onsite with each daily visit, reading and commenting
3. Post at least 30 articles each month
4. Promote worthy content on Persona Paper via social media, etc.
5. Strive to recruit new members to Persona Paper
6. Tag each post you write with FOPP so it can be easily found.
Please remember that these are not 'must-do' challenges, rather goals that we aim to achieve. Few of us meet all the challenges every month and that's absolutely fine. FOPP is about being active on the site and spreading the word. I also like to think that our members, being some of the most active on the site (many of us are also some of the longest serving members) can also use our knowledge of the site, or writing in general to help new members with any questions they may have.
The current members list is as follows:
New members for February (this section will be updated throughout the month)
New members for March
If you would like to join the FOPP challenge you can leave a comment here on this post and I will add you to the list, AliCanary will almost certainly copy and paste the list from this post and keep it updated throughout March as that is what I did when I took over so the list remains current at all times.
