The First Group You Started... February 24, 2006 6:32 PM

How long after you arrived at Care2 did you start your first group and what prompted you to do it?

For myself, the first group I started was:

Kentucky Cares Too!

about a month (maybe?) after I got here.  I was looking for a group for Kentucky and there wasn't one.

i havent started any groups though i've been real curious what the care2 'procedures' for starting a group is like.. there's something eeriely beaurocratic about care2 LOL

i am a co host on 5 groups and its freaky how easily that happens.. one day ur just a member saying what u think about things next u find urself next to the group owner on the group homepage! then u look among ur personal msgs and find an innocent msg from the group owner letting u know what he or she 'did'! i think that funny! though i kno it's freaked quite a number of ppl on care2..

Groups I have started February 26, 2006 8:05 AM

I started a group on the paranormal so that people can share their thoughts and feelings of their own experiences without being ridiculed for it.

Paranormal experiences if not understood can be traumatic for some people, and as I have had many experiences from the age of four-I know how hard it is to share what has happened without fear, or ridicule.

The other one I started is for families who are seperated. My parents living in the States inspired me to start this one. Not being able to see them and have them near me-at times, especially during holidays, their abscence is felt. Also, my husband's mother passed away a couple of years ago and the pain he felt is much like the pain you feel when you can't be with a loved one.

VENEZUELA February 26, 2006 12:27 PM

My first and only group is VENEZUELA and I started it after a while on Care2 since I couldn't find a group related to my country.

A group related to my lovely and tropical country, located in the northern part of South America. Also, some unrelated info as well.... Liz G. Members: 216

I haven't started a group yet... was roped into co-hosting one reallllllllll soon after getting heavily involved on care2. Eclectic community of faiths

 A friend has asked.. or suggested.. or tried to con... that I start one.... she suggested Holy Hooligans as the title. It's something that I'm often compared to... however I'm not sure that I would want to belong to a group that would have me for host.

Same story as Barb. I can't remember how long I was here before I opened this group - I thought care2 needed one:

My first Group... August 31, 2006 5:30 PM

According to my profile, I joined Care2 in late 2004......didn't realize I'd been here that long...

It wasn't too long afterward that I began my first group, 'Thyroid Support Group,' after I saw that hardly anyone had a practical, functioning place where people with thyroid troubles could come and get warm fuzzies.

I just posted my second solo-effort group on your "New Groups" thread, so go and have a peek...

BB,

Kat ^.^

My first group I started I guess about 2-3 months after I first came to Care 2.  That group is called The Wedding Chape.  It's still going.  It's not as active as I'd like it to be, but it's still open.  My second group is called Small Business Owners.  They're both groups, at least I think they are. LOL  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Didn't start a new group 4:05 PM February 11, 2008 4:07 PM

But took over this one>Responsible Business Owners  as the host, got a co-host and did a clean up of old post and added new ideas to it.  The growth of membership has, 32 new members.

I then was made co-host of   So Single It's Funny  a singles group.  I did this both in the fall of 2007.  I have really enjoyed it!!!
