Why this blog?

We've been looking for a way to share information with food coop members. Publishing articles in the Linewaiters' Gazette is great, and is obviously the best way to reach the most number of members. But sometimes we have information that's not in article format, or is too time-sensitive to wait for their publishing schedule. Plus we'd like to have a place to save Gazette articles for future reference.

Blogging is free. Setting up this blog was easy. Posting to the blog is quick and easy. (For now, only committee members can post messages and/or comments on the blog.) And it's available for all coop members to read, plus anyone else who wants to read it.

If this turns out that this isn't the best format, well then maybe we'll try something else in the future.
