Hey there! It’s Cheri from Cheri Speak. I have spent some time re-vamping the Bloggers for Peace website. Please poke around and check things out. I hope you like the changes. This is a much cleaner look and it is easier to navigate.
Also, I have added a “Goal & Event” calendar in the left side-bar.
You will notice there is already an August goal set. We are having a “membership drive” so-to-speak, and we would really love you participation. Can YOU get at least one of your friends to “Follow” the Bloggers for Peace blog? Help us surpass 700 “followers” before the end of August.
As always, there is a section of marketing and promotional materials for Bloggers for Peace that we encourage you to use and to add to. If you have any great images or other materials to add, please let us know at:
Although the url that you see in the browser says, “wordpress” in it, we DO have a dedicated url that is redirected to this site. So, when you are telling people about us, all you have to do is send them to “b4peace.org” and they will land right here!
I hope everyone is having an amazing summer! Let’s make August an incredible month for Peace!
