Just can it
Sep 23, 2004 17:58 PDT
Jackie, I own a canning group, Creative Canning Cuisine. We have over 700
members and the secret is first to encourage members to post regularly.
Start with a question like "what have you canned this month?" Ask people to
introduce themselves using a list of prepared (by you) questions.
I personally thought the list was disbanded because of inactivity. You as
owner/moderator have to stay on top of things. If people go to yahoogroup
and look up canning and/or preserving, and stumble upon your list, and see
it has been in existence for a couple of years and there have been little,
if any, posts, they probably won't join.
You also need to try to get some publicity for your group. If you know some
publishers of Internet zines, ask if they would put an ad you have prepared
in their newsletter.
Love and hugs,

Hi I started this list two years ago,
I am new to canning.
I need your help.
Would you like to help me moderate this list.
I don't know what I am doing.
But I see that 110 people have joined this list.
But no one says anything.
SO I know I am doing something yrong,
God Bless if you can help.
