  •  Learning to be effective (10+ / 0-)

    I used to write for a living in the computer division of the local state university.

    Way back when we were trying to get John Kerry elected, there was a group that specifically focused on writing effective letters and how to get them to the widest audience of people who needed to hear what we had to say.

    I have learned so much about netroots activism here and it has made me a better Democrat and progressive. I am disabled and can't go door to door and participate in events that help our cause. But, I can do a whole lot of good behind my key board. My favorite experience was phone banking for Sherrod Brown using the Move On system. I was a rookie but I learned how to do a cold call and, I believe, make a difference.

    Thanks to those who teach!


    Creativity is intelligence having fun.
