Carnival of MS Bloggers and the launch of a unique and inclusive Global Multiple Sclerosis Community
I came across your blog via the Carnival Of MS Bloggers, I am Squiffy of Squiffy’s House of Fun, on the list ;O)
You may be interested to hear about a new, unique and inclusive Global Multiple Sclerosis Community providing not only up to date MS News and Stories, but a place where those affected by Multiple Sclerosis can communicate with others affected by the disease, and the wider public, by means of Online Blogs, Discussion Forums and Net-based social interaction, which the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre launched last Thursday in collaboration with cre8Buzz.
Why not come and have a look, there are already some established MS bloggers signed up, and maybe join in, it is a great way to promote your blogs etc.
