Yesterday, Vivian Plank, my co-volunteer in Horizons communication and education project , pointed out to me the preferable solution to a recent Horizons blog dilemma. ie: My posts to Rockford's community Horizons blog don't fit into Horizons criteria, so Patrick Malone, WSU Extension-Horizons Community Coach, requested that I be removed from posting to the blog that scrolls Horizons' news headlines on Rockford's official web site, http://www.rockfordwa.com/.
Vivian is sincere and a dear to work with, so I adopted her idea -- that everyone should have their own blog and link it to http://www.rockfordwa.com/, and perhaps also to Rockford community's Horizons blog. That's the blog featured prominently on the town's official web site home page. (I'm told all posts to Horizons http://rockford-wa.blogspot.com/ must go through Micki Harnois.)
So I diligently filled in the form provided to include my business, Montana Scribbler, on the web site Businesses page. I also e-mailed Micki that I'd love to have a link to my business blog, Mona Leeson Vanek, aka, Montana Scribber, http://montanascribbler09.blogspot.com/, included on the Resources Links on Rockford community's Horizons blog.
I also asked her (if appropriate and approved) to please post an announcement that my posts will now be published on http://montanascribbler09.blogspot.com/ instead of at Horizons http://rockford-wa.blogspot.com/. That way the following of readers I've attracted will know where my posts will be.
Thank you to all the readers of my ramblings for your kind comments. Please watch for the news of my blog's new location in Sally Holt's North Palouse Journal news column, soon.
I'll post whenever I learn of information you might be interested in, or benefit from. Or just when the need to chatter strikes me!
Meanwhile, please add your voice to mine in requesting Mayor Wagner and the town officials to have webmasters, Josh and Andy, create a town blog with a RSS feed to bring instant news updates -- provided by Rockford's elected officials.

The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls. ~Elizabeth Cady Stanton
