Virtual swans

This week has been an exceptionally busy week behind the scenes here at Maggie's Online  Someone said the other day that the centre was like a virtual swan  - calm and serene on the surface but underneath a different story...  It is lovely to be in touch with so many of you and  please don't be discouraged from messaging any time you need to.  Apologies however if you are waiting for a message from me - you will get a reply.  

In the meantime  you may like to get in touch with other members , it can really help to talk to someone who is, or has been through something similar. To make your profile more visible you need to take part in the conversations or  you can write a blog (before you submit it set the entry for "everyone" to read.)

When you have posted a comment or a blog other members can reply or they can click on your username to find out more about you from your profile.  They can also send a friend request which means  (if accepted) that you can send private messages to each other.

You can also have a read through existing conversations and just join in or  click on a user name to find out more about another member. If you have been a member for a while perhaps say hello to someone new.... 

Best wishes
