Thanks to a recent diary I was inspired to start a networking site for Kossacks.
It is my hope that it will provide a place to gather, network and share resources in these tough times.
This is a short diary...not much else to say here, other than I am as frustrated as everyone is with friends losing homes, jobs, self respect and feelings of self worth.
The site allows you to post, create networking groups in your area, create blogs, upload content, audio and video, post job requests and offerings, showcase your talent and more!
Important information scrolls off DK so quickly and this site will keep that information more easily accessible. In a few days we will have a classified ads section too.
So this is my attempt to do something positive...to make the change happen and keep hope alive!
Please join us and help us spread the word!
And, please rec this up!
YES WE CAN!!!
Update: We made the rec list!!! Thank you!!!!! You are FANTASTIC!!!
BTW, if anyone is inclined to donate to cover the cost of hosting and a small stipend to unaspencer ( Allison) who is doing a fantastic job of administering the site, we have a PayPal button on the top right of the home page. ( It never hurts to ask :)
Update 2: We are over 900 members now! Amazing! I can't believe you people...you are more amazing than I knew ( and I thought you were pretty awesome!
Update 3: We are still getting members. PLEASE keep recommending this diary so everyone hears about the site. More members means more resources. My vision is that everyone who joins finds the perfect employment. Look...it was the power of community that got Barack elected. He knows about community organizing, and if we can elect a President...surely we can find jobs for a few of our friends...right?
Update 4: We are well over 1,000! You people will leave me speechless!
UPDATE 5: We are almost at 1,400 members. Everyone is approved. We were up until 3AM approving people and finally had to go sleep. We will obviously need more help with this. It is turning into a full time endeavor for the two of us. Please post your thoughts and ideas about that. AND keep the rec's coming! Thank you, thank you , thank you!
YES WE CAN!!!!!
