Hello, friends, and well met!
I became moderator of this community a couple of months ago and meant to do a nice lil post all introductory-style, but... yanno.... life.
So, nice to meet you! My name is Aubrey (birth name, means "leader of the elves" of all fabulous things) and I'm a newish Registered Nurse living in the Pacific Northwest, USA. I currently work NOC shift (6 pm to 7 am), so I'm generally up and around whilst the rest of the local universe slumbers.
I've considered myself "nondenominational pagan" for, eesh, almost 25 years now. Now that I have more downtime (I only work about 14 days a month though I'm full-time) without nursing school, I hoped to explore more of various aspects of paganism. When given the opportunity to help this community become more active, I figured it was a perfect opportunity to explore such things, make new friends, and increase activity in the group.
So, my question to you: What would you like to see here?
At the moment, ANY traffic;>! I've found it kind of amusing how busy most of our alt.rel online communities WERE until not long after the Millenium. It was like we'd subconsciously bought into the whole Xian genre thing. Once the world didn't end, traffic dropped massively. on ALL my lists/communities/etc.
Good luck with the Nursing from a Retired LVN with IV certification. Did everything from Burn Unit to Psych ward over the yrs. Been Retired since 1996 and can't see how folks "deal" with the bureaucracy gone amock of today's Nursing. Too much Paperwork! Paperless office my arse!
I think it would be nice to share ideas, theories, experiences and such. I always like to hear how people are developing their craft.
We could always have a themed discussion or something like that on a regular basis - once a week etc - whatever fits. Maybe even a show and tell - since sometimes a picture can say a thousand words, or just be a great visual element to the topic.
Anyhow, just some random thoughts from me.
