I just tried to post a message to the SignWriting List about this, so if you get doubles please forgive...I am not sure why it didn't seem to post on my end...
There is already a SignWriting Facebook page that was not started by me......smile...but of course I am grateful to all those who did, and to all those who have written so much about SignWriting on that Facebook page - quite amazing!
SignWriting Facebook Page
There is also a SignWriting Interest Group on Facebook which I believe Charles Butler founded? thank you Charles! That is really exciting...
SignWriting SWIG on Facebook
So just go to Facebook and search for SignWriting and start joining and posting ...that might help a lot...
I already have a Facebook page for Valerie Sutton... for at least a year if not longer...but guess what? There are over 99 Valerie Suttons on Facebook!...I never realized how many people are named Valerie Sutton, but there are a lot of them...So if you try to find me it might be hard...grin...
So Maria - do you have a Facebook page? I will look now....smile...
