All things happen for a reason.... Melanie asked me, Jane Hall Hinrichsen, to do a little blogging for the company from a FACS educator's view point. I'm going to do that with a bit of humor and the seriousness it takes to keep "FACS" alive in our schools. Keeping FACS alive is one of my pet projects as well as many other things that I'm sure you'll hear about.
Do you remember Erma Bombeck? She was a syndicated columnist and bringing her up may make me appear to be old but it's only in age not my soul. I know that she was a journalism major and used her humor and writing skills to write a column about the every day life of a family in daily newspapers. When I was a kid I thought she was occasionally amusing but also sometimes a bit dull. As I grow older and look back at her stories and the way that us "oldies but goodies" grew up I know that those stories were wonderful records of the lives of families. I believe that the modern column in the daily newspaper really is blogging, tweeting and facebook and I hope that you can enjoy the FACS version of those columns with me.
I want to look at current, future and past projects of FACS professionals. Please contact me if you have something that you would like to write about and share with others because I know as a team FACS folks are wonderful but we sometimes forget to share the things that we do because of time and not always knowing how important marketing our work really is for the future of FACS.
