FOPP: First Things First

As someone here who is dedicated to Persona Paper and its success -- just like many of you -- I've been amazed at the activity onsite of late. Yes, some of that activity is from those who have taken on the FOPP challenge, but there's also plenty of other postings too. How awesome is that? A more probing question: Can we not only keep it up but do even better in the weeks and months to come.

Fifteen minutes on the site each day? For me, 15 minutes doesn't begin to allow me to read the new posts and follow up on conversations to previous posts. I am spending more than an hour a day onsite. No complaints from me, just saying 15 minutes is no longer long enough to scratch the surface of activity here.

That was the positive stuff. Now my mea culpa : While you wouldn't know it from my lack of posting as the volunteer clerk of FOPP for the month of September, I surely am she -- the clerk, that is. Darn it, SuffolkJason did such a super job preceding me in this effort that I've just been afraid to fail -- so I have kept putting it off, day after day.

I'm going to try and put my perfectionist tendencies behind me and proceed in the spirit of fun and adventure -- which is what FOPP is all about to me. : )

You're no flop at FOPPing, that's for sure. Keep up the good work. :)

I am heartened to still see the introductory posts for new members on a regular basis, and I agree--15 minutes??? Jeez, I may not show up every day, but when I'm here, I' gonna hang out for a while!

Heck yes, lady. I haven't seen your name in my activity list in some time now. Things are beginning to heat up a bit more and there are plenty of new posts to spark your interest.

Happy to hear it. I really enjoyed your post about the way the IS situation is being handled. Do you have any more like those up your sleeve?

You're doing a great job. Never fear. We appreciate everything you do.

I think that this site is doing really great for the posting of articles. I know that I have to start posting more on here. Today I have spent most of the day on here just commenting and reading. I am thinking that it is almost time to call it a night but there are so many great posts to read.
