We are approaching 1300 members and at our present rate of growth we will reach 2000 members by year end. We thank each of you for joining and giving this network a chance to demonstrate the collective and individual power of social networking for the benefit of the artistic community and its fans and consumers. Many of you have not ventured to explore the capabilities at your fingertips for various reasons and we encourage you to become more actively involved. It cannot hurt and can only increase the benefit to you as the more active members are discovering. As network host I must pay attention to bandwidth availability as we grow and I have been searching for ways to continue to provide free bandwidth for all members and will continue to do so as long as I don't have to subsidize the network from my own funds. For those members who do not visit your page or use it for months at a time, we may have to consider discontinuing your membership which is using up bandwidth that the more active members will soon need. I will give you fair warning if this option seems imminent. We have every intention of continuing to grow this network and add to it's capabilities at no out of pocket cost to any member. We can purchase additional bandwidth for a monthly fee and move the network up to premium level which we predict will be necessary when we reach 2000 members. We have just added an application that can help fund the expansion of the network with no charge to anyone. It only takes a few seconds of activity on your part as a member. Your response to this activity will determine the future of this network in terms of us have greater worldwide impact which empowers every member.
Here's what to do:
On the right hand column of your page is a section called "Links." Directly under that heading is an advertisement that rotates as to its content each time you open a page. If you simply "click" on that advertisement and open the page, the network will make $.01 cents per click. You don't have to sign up for anything and you can simply close the ad page right after it opens if you are not interested in reading further. It only takes a second and you remembering to do it. I believe together we will be able to fund our expansion going forward without any outside help or cost to any member. We want you to continue to have free and unlimited bandwidth on this network for your needs. Please give it a try.
WORKING TOGETHER WORKS!!!
