Greenfield Southeast content, at least as I understand it at this point, is beginning to fall into two buckets. For now, I'll call them "interesting reads" and "commentary". That may change down the line, but I'll cross that bridge later. The Facebook page will continue to be where you can find 100% of what's posted, because I'm not crazy enough to think that people check the blog daily (...yet. And if you do, thank you!). I'll post blog entries (commentary) over there once they're done so that interested readers can easily find them. (I'm also working on my personal sharing settings to avoid double posts for some of you.)
There are also two growing groups of potential contributors that I'd like to acknowledge and give some guidance to.
Group 1: I have a relevant/interesting article to share!
Great! Just post it to the Facebook page; and if it looks like something that makes sense to post widely, I'll do it as quickly as my normal life schedule allows.
Group 2: The blog is really missing an entry about ________________.
Let me know! I'm open to the idea of guest posts or suggestions. I'm one guy with a full-time job and one perspective; and the more dimensions we can add to the blog, the better.
Ultimately, though, Greenfield Southeast as a blog/FB page cannot be an end in and of itself. My hope is that its real worth will be through readers arriving at a better understanding of the human development crisis currently plaguing the southeast (mostly) out of the public eye AND being inspired to take action to help increase quality of life for everyone living in Southern small towns.
There are four hundred years of history at work here. It's taken the work of many already and will take the effort of many more to build a better life for the 20 million people living in our region's small towns. I hope that y'all are finding this writing sustaining and thought-provoking and a helpful piece of a much broader effort.
Thanks as always for reading,
