...two Years of FaceBook for Gingerology...
It's not too hard to see that FB will (and generally already HAS) supplant most other forms of 'information gathering' and 'live' info sharing... but hopefully there's still a spot for blogs in general, as they can document stuff in a less 'stream of consciousness' mindset... if you don't grab a pic or a link on FB right when you see it, it may be buried under 50 pages of new stuff within a few hours! And honestly, it's so hard to keep up with 'posting and re-posting' folks do regarding GingerPics, I'll just say that ANY pics which show up in a post here are most likely from SOMEWHERE on FB... so thanks to those folks!!!
Well, with that, hope to see y'all over on FB soon...if you haven't found us, a good 'meeting spot' would be "Ginger Rogers Book Club", which is kind of the 'home base' for Gingerologists - again created by Peachy (she REALLY needs to be put on the payroll...I'll even pay her what I make over here / there... ) - most Gingerologists are afoot there at some point...
And with that, perhaps my favorite 'snippet' from FaceBook, by some 'random' chance, but truer words have never been spoken, albeit QUITE understated:
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
