CommuneLife Blog – Contributors wanted

On the first of May of this year, we will be launching the CommuneLife.org blog.  We are putting together a collection of articles and photo essays about the challenges and benefits of collective living.  We are especially excited about the flavors of community where there is a high degree of resource and income sharing.

The proposed format for this blog is that we will do three postings each week:

  1. Monday – New article of general interest on community life
  2. Wednesday – Photo essay from communities across the country
  3. Friday – Historic blog posting which was popular and remains current

We are stocking articles and photo essays now.  If you would like to be involved in this volunteer project as a contributor, editor, social media promoter, photographer or in another capacity, please comment on this post and we will get back to you.

The CommuneLife.org project is part of the Federation of Egalitarian Communities (FEC) Point A project.  While the Point A project is promoting new communities in north eastern US urban areas, the CommuneLife blog is promoting both rural and urban shared living solutions across North America.

    I especially like this: “We are especially excited about the flavors of community where there is a high degree of resource and income sharing.” “Flavors” is something I have observed with interest as I have researched the FEC communities. It’s a matter of interest to me that the fact of laying an income sharing and egalitarian foundation that is in harmony with the FEC principles does not mean your community will be identical to any other FEC community. Of course this is good because it means you can serve a wide variety of people using the same FEC principles underlie their communities.

    The FEC site seems to be down at the moment.

    I’d be interested in offering my copyediting and proofreading skills to the blog, and maybe eventually contributing. Let me know if you’d like to discuss this.

    I am still eager to help you develop the “Intentional Community In A Box”. Contact me.

    I’d be interested in editing or other areas where you have a need.
