I'm an environmental engineer who loves the outdoors. I'm trying to connect with other like individuals to share experiences via blogging. I like the concept of the fundraiser. I've been thinking about starting a Facebook account. Perhaps it's the right time for a number of reasons. Stop by my blog for a chat or just to look around.

Take care,


Take care.

Ken, I think you've hit on a really interesting discussion - the merits of tapping in to yet another social network. To give in, or not?

I think what makes our participation in these types of communities unique is the manner in which we uphold our ethics, values and passions in each. Blogging is unique because, for many of us, it provides a written forum to express ideas. When used appropriately, blogs and all other forms of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, have limitless potential to affect change and bring awareness to a cause.

Let us know if you open a Facebook account! We'd love to chat with you there.

All my best - Sara.
