I know it may seem a little 'odd' to some people, here. But personally, I would rather hear the opinion of every person who cares to share it--
As my profile states (though not quite as many people may read a profile, as they might read other things), I am the Founder and Owner of a small but growing Online entity, which is at the moment, still very remote in its nature, and for good reason.
For awhile, I've been researching ways to make it a Physical Public Community House, to which other people can come, whether it be for a place to call "Home", to be protected, a place to belong, etc.. And actually, the concept of the Community has been merely an idea in my head, for ten years, and still going, now. It as only about two or three months ago, that my older sister talked me into bringing it back, after it had been dead for a long time (mainly because I had given up on the idea, and I felt as though I'd lost everything that was of value to me).
Now, since I've brought it back, and it's slowly growing, I've been doing allot of research into ways that I can bring it into an actual Place for others (including but not limited to those much like myself, which I think you can fill in the "blanks", for that), and I've been looking for others who would support the ideal concept, once it's made more known.
Some time ago, I took a small part in a substantially large community (albeit my presence was only Online, but a community, nonetheless), and in that time, I'd noticed just how little acceptance is appreciated, despite how much it was preached by those who had supposedly been involved in it for a long enough time to know how it felt to be unaccepted.
Now, however, I still find myself in a bit of a loophole, with it, because I feel like I've been 'promoting' my Community in a place too "small" in some regards. So now, I am hoping to expand it, and entrust more people with its existence, so I can finally bring my Online Community into a Real Place, for others, and my sister (along with other members of our Community) has been anticipating its growth, with eagerness. So I would like everyone's opinion of the idea, first with this (though vague as I know it is, but with reason), so that I can make the purpose of the Site, alone, more known, and thus to expand the actual Community that I and the others within are hoping to see.
I would greatly appreciate everyone's opinion, including those who have been here the longest, if possible, so that I can be sure the idea is heard, since though it is more "new" in its actual creation, the idea, itself, has been my goal, for a long time, now.
Personally, I at least prefer to know that I might have the support of more people who might be either in the same "boat" as those for whom my/our Community is intended, or know someone who is. And please, if you find yourself interested in this idea and in the Community, then let me know, so that something can be discussed.
I look forward to reading any and all commentary left for this.
