This morning, I posted this note on Craigslist. Surprisingly, two people quickly got in touch. One person simply wanted to extend their support (thanks PTM!), and the other person happened to be thinking similar thoughts about what she could do to help her neighbors as the winter closes in on us.

Apparently, not everyone thinks this is a good idea. The craigslist community flagged my post as ‘inappropriate’ and quickly removed the posting.

Could it be that this post is irrelevant in the “Free” section of Craigslist?

Maybe I’ll try again in the community section and see what happens.

Stay tuned.

  1. all the best with your project…i guess it doesn’t fit into a category that craigslist can easily categorize. which might just mean it’s innovative and needed!

    good luck!

  2. thanks for the support, Nikko!
    so far, folks in the ‘community’ section of c’slist seem to be ok with the post.
    it was great to read about your experience at the 10-day retreat — i’m fascinated by the possibility of participating in something like that, but scared as hell of doing it (i’m afraid i’d lose my mind and not come back). i’ll let you know how it goes.
