    All of your ideas, Frank, and the suggestions made by members are really good. May I suggest "pets" and also perhaps "tips for easy living".
    The tips subject is actually one that we've had on the Stew--cleaning tips, how to make simple repairs, that sort of thing. Carolyn Kieper had some wonderful tips (my windows have never been so clean!) as well as other members' suggestions.
    I'd personally be interested in a "books" discussion, but I'm not sure how interesting that would be to other members.

    Hi MG, "Pets" will be added also, thank you! A tips section for home care would be useful, I'll have to see whether it gets its own forum or not.

    Wow the list is really growing. I hope it's not too many forums. That's the problem with a new website and many forums, until the momentum of posts starts building many individual forums will remain quiet and that doesn't look good to visitors. Going to have to think long and hard how to alleviate that problem!

    Here is the list as of now:

    I did some thinking and that list of forums is completely overwhelming :D So instead it may be better to start more simple and if needs be then to add sub-forums. So the list now reads:

    * Hi, I'm new here!
    * Take a Break
    * Cooking & Food
    * Hobbies & Interests
    * Arts & Crafts
    * Health & Fitness
    * Home Care & Decoration
    * Relationships & Dating
    * Fashion & Physical Appearance
    * Money, Finance & Living
    * Family & Parenting
    * Someone To Lean On
    * Charity Work & Volunteering
    * Suggestions & Website News

    Frank, so much better! I'm on another forum that has a grocery list of topics, and folks get frustrated or bored by the time they sift through all the subjects. Simple is best! :stew2:
