birth announcement: new website

Please note the new website address for Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers in the browser bar because we’re never, never going back!  The new software is cleaner, easier to navigate, and more functional.

The changes affect you as a member of Oceanside Grandmothers because we’re changing how group information will reach you.  Part of this website is active.  Fresh information will be posted regularly under Upcoming events. (You’ll see that heading in the menu bar at the top of every page.)  All fresh information will go automatically to the email of everyone who has signed up to “follow the blog”.

So here’s our request to members of Oceanside Grandmothers: please go to the bottom of this page and sign up to follow the blog.  You will be asked for your email address. Eileen has entered one of her addresses below so that you can see how it looks:

followblog1

Enter your email address and click on “Follow”.  You will then be sent an email message from the site so that you can confirm that you want to receive the posts. When you get the following message in your email, click on the button saying “Confirm Follow”:

followblog2

And there you are!  You’ll get messages in your email whenever our group posts fresh information.  And have no concerns about the privacy of your email address.  It’s secure.

After a period of transition, this method of passing you information will largely replace the current methods of general emailing of group updates.

Other new features

And then…explore this new website for its features.

  • we now have a calendar of events (in Upcoming events) that will make it easy to spot upcoming group activities.
  • there’s now a password-protected section of the website just for members.  (It has nothing in it yet!)  Members will be given the password shortly.
  • past events since the beginning of 2010 are represented here on our new website, accessible through a drop-down menu under Past Events in the top menu bar.  They are covered more briefly than in the previous website, but are much more accessible for browsing.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact Eileen Dombrowski, the webmaster — or, as she calls herself, the spider in the web.  How?  Well, most of you have her private address in any case, but why not go to Contact us in this website, and use that generic address instead?
