New Members for October on Persona Paper
It's hard to keep good news quiet, so while I am stealing a bit of Kasman 's thunder, I wanted to share that 10 new members have joined Persona Paper so far this month. A hearty welcome to one and all, and hoping your experiences here will be positive ones.
Earlier this month I posted " Attracting and Keeping New Members ," ideas were floated about how to do both these things. A lively discourse followed, including some members of the community commenting on his/her willingness to participate in a Welcoming Committee if one was formed. Another idea was that the new moderators might serve in this capacity, but to the best of my knowledge, moderators have not yet been named.
It falls to each of us as community members to give these newcomers, and all yet to join, the warm welcome we would like to have if the shoe was on the other foot. I'm not talking about responsibility or "ought to," but providing a gentle reminder to walk the walk about which we previously talked. A sentence or two of greeting to a new member's Profile page or directly on an introductory post will go a long way in demonstrating the type of community we are.
