WordTrip Revival

Postby JillStar » Wed Mar 09, 2016 9:40 pm

We're giving this a shot! Today is the first day of WordTrip Revival.

Any members who come to visit and wish to help get us started again, jump on in. If you're still in contact with previous members and want to let them in on this, go ahead.

At the moment, the site is not open for new members but that can be changed. The problem is that the system was overrun by bots and fake members causing thousands of non-members to be listed. It's been sliced down to a few hundred. All members with at least 10 posts who have logged on in the last ten years were left on the site.

Some old posts were archived along with old writing groups and other forum areas. It's cleaned up so we have a basic foundation to start again.

Visit the SUGGESTION BOX if you have any requests for future areas to be opened up on WT. At the moment we're just getting started and I don't want to overwhelm the site with places people might not use.

As to the look of WT... working on it! 8)

I'm so glad that Wordtrip has been resurrected! It's been eight years since I was active here and nearly six years ago, I created a new blog. It's still primarily creative writing, though recently my posts have centered on photography, and I'm trying a personal challenge to write at least 15 minutes every day. I can't say I've succeeded in that but I'm working on it anyway. :D I'm glad to be back and I'm looking forward to sharing the creative process with everyone!

Hey Liz... good to see you!!
I have a writing blog/site as well... seems like that's been the thing to do during the last few years. It's a nice place for me to post my writing but I don't get feed back that way. I suppose it's because posting on a blog is essentially a finished product and I doubt anyone would every say "hey... this needs work".

Keep checking back. It's a work in progress to get everyone checking back frequently. :)

I've been checking in every now and then, even if I don't say anything. My creativity seems to have died so I'm trying to revitalize that as well.
Is this my reality or yours?
