Gotta Stay on the Neighborhood Grapevine

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.
