Hi Suzy, Ellen, and everyone else!
I was just tinkering with a Ning site for New England SCBWI and thought I'd do a search to see if anyone else had beaten us to it, and it looks like that would be you guys! I'm very interested in finding out how your experience has been with this type of site, to know what we should and shouldn't do. For example, the Google ads in the right column are worrisome, but is there any effective way for us to distance ourselves from them? And what is the best way for us to roll a social networking site out to our members?
Looking forward to the great social networking experiment here and there as well.
