Blimey, there are SO many ways to chatter online nowadays, aren’t there? As promised, in my last couple of posts, I have been thinking of the best ways for us to stay in touch now I am scaling back the 1-1 stuff. Here’s what I’ve set up for us. First, I asked you what you wanted and..
Quite a few of you said you liked the idea of a forum but just as many warned me not to start off with one if I wanted a life! I thank you for that – I was off again there, being too helpful again, wasn’t I? What would I do without you lot to look after me?!
It seems many people like the existing comments system, others want to group-chat, a few enjoy tweeting and quite a lot of you like Facebook for ease as you’re on it a lot 😉
A couple of you suggested Yahoo groups, which seem to have a better search facility than Facebook, but I found it very difficult to join a group or set one up for some reason so lost my temper with it. I trialled a private forum but realised that everyone was right and it would turn into a workhorse (is that right?!!) unless I had a load of admins to help out. Might be something for the future maybe.
In my head, I was trying to remember: “Keep It Simple, Stupid“. After annoying myself by calling myself stupid repeatedly, I decided to give us a mixture of ways to keep in touch, use what already works and is simplest for you and me.
How To Follow, Chat and Comment
In essence, you can get blog posts by email, as a feed to your favourite reader, via Twitter or by liking the new Purehealth Facebook page I have set up. See all the links in the right hand column to set up any of these things – ask me if you’re stuck. You can also get the monthly round-up newsletter of course on the Purehealth site (top right of the home page).
You can comment on the blog posts in all those places and subscribe to comments on here or as a feed so you don’t miss out on what other people are saying. You will now also be able to comment on the various pages and sections on the Purehealth site (or you will shortly when I’ve added them to every page..!)
To chat with others generally, you can join the new Purehealth Facebook Group. This is an open group for now so I don’t have to physically add every one of you (there are over a thousand of you currently) but we may close it to make it exclusively Purehealthy later on, so
This is a searchable site so should eventually build into a nice resource area for you. The idea is to create a knowledge-sharing, non-judgemental environment with info we can trust. I am also planning to do live Q&A events there so do make sure you are part of the group if you want to be part of those.
NB: If you are new to Facebook, like me, I found this excellent free Facebook 101 that is really easy to follow and will help you.
Bear in mind that the group is open currently so everyone can see posts. Once we have you all on there, we will close it and then only members can see posts.
Anyway, hope that all makes sense. I’m sure it will evolve as I learn more. Choose whichever way to stay in touch that suits you. I will try my best to facebook, tweet and chat with you – please help by doing the same.
Let’s get to it…!
