Well, I've gotten better with Twitter, Facebook and the forum, but I clearly need to do a better job on my own blog! What's going on? WriteAPrisoner.com is upgrading servers again. This should help with any intermittent issues with form submissions or up time that you've been experiencing. We're also upgrading all software on our server, so we can improve the look and functionality of the entire site. We've also been working away on our Self-Help Series (http://www.writeaprisoner.com/self-help/), and we have some new documents in the works. I'm most excited about our Parenting from Prison Self-Help guide. We've been collecting information from our members about it, and we're putting together a very complete guide which should benefit both parents and children of incarcerated parents. And speaking of, we do have our Children Impacted By Crime Scholarship Funds up and running, and we've selected our first batch of recipients. Very exciting! And on that same note, please check our new site for children (no affiliation to WriteAPrisoner.com of course): http://crimefreekids.com It's a work in progress, but so is everything that we do.
We have some really cool changes coming out soon. We've really improved the Back to Work section, and we think it's going to go a long way in helping inmates get back to work. Speaking of that, post a resume for any inmate coming home within the year at no charge here: WriteAPrisoner.com - Submit Inmate Resume Form
We have a lot of new stuff on the site. You'll have to snoop around to find it, but I do promise to spend more time updating you on issues over here. We're a small organization, and most of my time is spent on development, but I will try to do a better job on updating you on those developments. Thank you for your continued support! The best is yet to come!
Happy new year, my friends!
