60,000 neighbors strong

Neighbors,
 
I'm setting a goal to grow our network to 60,000 neighbors strong. Bold, but possible. 
 
Our attempt to operate 18 neighborhood social networks in 2009 and 2010 did not exactly work. I'll spare you the details...
 
Instead of giving up (not an option for us), we've made our JP network the citywide network and are now setting in motion our plan to become 60,000 neighbors…

What should we do as neighbors this spring and why?

Neighbors,

I'm inviting all NFN members from all neighborhoods to join this, our new citywide network. 

To get things going, I'm posing the first of a series of questions (the next are up to you - add a blog post now):

This question is: What should we do as neighbors this spring and why?

Specifically, I am looking for examples of actions we can take, behaviors we can change,…

Hey kid, want some candy?

Scary phrase right?

What is even scarier is that the Tobacco Industry is doing this to our young people in MA right now in the form of underhanded tobacco marketing tactics!

Are you serious? Yep, sure am. 

Did you know tobacco products are being made and marketed to look and taste like "candy" and that they are being sold in plain site and as individual units to make them more affordable to young people?

Did you…

JP Members: Changes to where you post stuff

JP neighbors,

Now that we are a citywide network, you will be posting neighborhood related information in the re-activated Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Forum. Please do not add information as a blog post unless you want to start a citywide conversation or are a NFN partner making a citywide announcement. 

For events, it's really important that you tag each event…

Network Update and Next Steps

  2. Made it really easy for you to find what you are looking for on the front page with our new "Craigslist" style navigation. Thanks you to David K for the support and Guidance. 
  3. Created forum categories for each…

Welcome to the new Citywide Neighbors for Neighbors!

Neighbors,

Over the weekend we migrated to the our new URL and began implementing the new navigation structure on the front page. 

A technical glitch took the network offline from Saturday from about 5 pm to early this morning, thanks for your patience as that took some time to resolve. 

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please leave them as a comment.
