Using the Member Blog

Have you visited the Al‑Anon Member Blog yet? It is a great place to read other members’ experience, strength, and hope on the monthly topics, and to write your own!
Because the posts contain many gems, some members have expressed interest in sharing them at meetings. The Member Blog comments were never intended for this use since they are not Conference Approved Literature. However, the Blog is a fantastic source for meeting topics. Members are welcome to chair a meeting using any of the Blog topics, possibly inspiring more members to write and post their sharings on the Blog. Happy reading and posting!

Al‑Anon in National Media

Be on the lookout for the “Dear Abby” newspaper column for March 9 recommending Al‑Anon. Many newspapers have either gone entirely digital or include some bonus content available online only. Consider searching their website for the article and, if possible, leave a comment expressing your gratitude for the recommendation. Please protect your anonymity at the level of the internet by not revealing your membership in the program. Readers of national media items could contact the WSO for local meeting information. It is always important for groups to provide WSO and all service arm websites with up‑to‑date meeting information, including temporary electronic meeting information, so everyone can help newcomers find a meeting.
