How do you want the FNPS  blog to work?  How do you want to read the blog?

What are your priorities?

Options are:

  • I read it from my cell phone and/or tablet.  I want it to be easily readable from either vs. I read it from a computer only - just make it readable
  • I like what I saw last week (August/first week of Sep.).  Or, I like what I see today.
  • I want the blog to appear on the FNPS home page vs. don't care.

Please send your responses to Shirley Denton, FNPS Communications Chair.  Please let me know who you are and if you are an FNPS member.
