Brand new features!

By popular demand...two brand new features! Our facebook fans have been helping kick the tires....so please join everyone there and shout out a hello!

Many of you who aren't on Facebook have been asking for a place to chat about all things OWH...and now we have that for you! You can get to it via a few places (and an easy link here: http://operationwritehome.org/forum ....depending on your browser, you may find one easier than the other:

  1. From our homepage, hover your mouse over the button for the "CONNECT" page (far right link in the button bar)....you'll see the forum there.
  2. From the blogs, the same forum can be reached using the blue Forum "thought bubble" off to the right. It's the same forum, same content, just repackaged over here on the blog. For certain browsers, this just may be easier!
This won't replace Facebook or blogs by any means....if there are major announcements we'll always post them in several locations. (Facebookers tend to get a preview of things when we need help, like kicking tires on Forums!) 

So feel free to chat away, ask questions, offer suggestions....let's get to know each other!

We now also have a photo gallery for your cards! You can certainly still post them on your blogs, and on our Facebook wall...but some folks have still needed a further option. So if you have no blog, you can post your card in the gallery and then grab the url to use with InLinkz for challenges. You can also use a gallery post for a bloghop (though a blog is recommended, since you can add so much more to a blog post than you can to a gallery caption!)

To get to the gallery, go to our main homepage and hover your mouse over the button for "CARDS" and you'll see the gallery there. And here's a quick link: http://operationwritehome.org/gallery
