Homeless Family blog

Here’s the link to the blog about the ladder rack and the missing father. You may make more sense of it than I did!
I’ve just checked the last post on the blog – last as in finished. The blog was written for a certain time and is now done with. It ended in January this year.
The homeless family aspect wasn’t a joke; the blogger writes in his last post:
My name is John,
2004 homeless with family
2005 diagnosed Bipolar and began treatment, still in shelter
2006 got out of shelter
2007 continued stability. Started professional blogging. Kept advocating through some hard harassment locally by the 'Downtown Vigilante' and his 'posse'.
2008 elected to the Board of Directors of the Lead Agency in Jacksonville that spreads the money to the homeless service providers.

It goes to show you can write about anything – and it can be of value – in the great wide world of Blog. Furthermore, there are a heap more comments on this blog than I ever get on any of mine!

Thanks for the shout out. Yes, homeless in 2004 to now part of the decision making body that decides how to spend money better to help the community.

I started back around January last year with A few months later I accepted doing guest writing on their blog as well as being a forum admin.

If you're looking at getting more exposure from people and get regular readers interested in staying, I've found them better than MyBlogLog, Blogcatalog, or other 'networking' sites.

Best, and thanks so much for making mention of my blog. It meant a lot.

Thanks for your comments, John. I don't do much networking, but I'll keep note of your advice about the sites.
My pleasure to 'mention' you!
