Happy New Year!
I want to take a moment to tell all of our members how much I appreciate you trying Nation of Neighbors. I know there are literally thousands of great web-based projects out there vying for your attention. Thanks very much for giving ours a chance. I hope that you have found Nation of Neighbors useful.
2009 was a wonderful year. We launched Nation of Neighbors in June and we’ve had a great response. We’ve made a lot of new friends, received some great feedback, made improvements, learned a lot and, hopefully, somewhere someone is a little safer.
Despite the great year we’ve just had, I’m really excited about 2010. We’re currently involved in several grant opportunities and exploring other funding options. We’ll be launching several new exciting features this month including the ability to reply to reports and other local news simply by replying to the notification email, discussion groups and Twitter integration. And on a more personal note, I’m also laid off from my full-time job as of today. While it’s stressful, I’m using it as an opportunity to devote more time and energy to Nation of Neighbors. As of today, this is my full time job. I’m looking forward to working with you.
