Kate in Burlington’s Old North End wrote a lovely “call to shovels” today post-blizzards, encouraging neighbors to help clear troubled sidewalk spots as a show of community spirit (it’s the city’s responsibility here). Great idea.
Her opening line caught my eye too…
I don’t usually post, but I read every single ONE Newsletter I get.
I surveyed one Front Porch Forum neighborhood last year and found that 98% of respondents claimed to read or skim every issue of their neighborhood forum. And 50% had posted a message in the last six months.
This high degree of readership must contribute to the impressive results FPF’s initial advertisers are reporting.
