Discovering Moonbeams

A new community has just opened up and it’s name is Discovering Moonbeams. This is a wonderful place to come make friends, it is also a great place to add a book mark or your blog.

A month or so ago I was approached by the owner of Moonbeams. Moon the founder of the site and asked me if I would be willing to go take a looksie and join if I would like.

She explained to me it was a brand new book marking site, a community to start new friendships and grow together. I decided to join and have nothing but good things to say so far about the place.

Moon has been a God sent thus far and has helped me in promoting my articles and we have become good friends. I decided I would interview her so you can see Moonbeams from her perspective. So here we go.

Linda: Hi Moon How are you today?

Moon: Doing great

Linda: Lets start by asking a little bit about you. Could you give us all a little bit of back ground about yourself?

Moon: Sure. I am the mother of three teenagers, aged 18-21. Happily embarking on the next chapter of my life..Life after children! In addition to my children, I have 10 furry rescued kids. I choose to be a vegetarian, feel passionate about human and animal rights, but most of all I enjoy quiet evenings at home with my fiance on our computers.

Linda: I also have a furry friend Moon, she brings me so much joy having 10 is quite a lot of love I am sure. When did Moonbeams become one of your dreams?

Moon: I toyed with the idea beginning on New Years day.

Linda: For what reasons did you decide to open Moonbeams?

Moon: A few years back, my family went though a very emotionally trying time. Our 16 yr old went missing from school grounds.
Try as I may with the local police and school no one seemed to care about her. Let alone get  her picture out. So.. out of desperation I
turned to my Stumble Upon page. Within days.. I had thousands of people from all over the world contacting me! Offering their help, prayers
and support. These friends stayed with me 24/7 until thankfully  nearly 2 weeks later she was found. Safe and sound. I never will forget the love and support I felt from strangers at this terrible time in my life. It re-instilled in me the belief that total strangers really can come together and care about each other. That we can bridge any gap.. it does not matter what God we serve or what country you are  from or in some cases what language you speak we can reach out and help one another. It is a powerful thing! With time so difficult for everyone, I hoped to created a central meeting place where friends from all over the web and world could
unite. Come to get to know each other better and offer support when times were tough.

Linda: That sounds so wonderful especially in this day and age when life seems so difficult. I am so glad your daughter was found safely. So when was the site opened for business?

Moon: I first started looking into it around Valentines Day of this year. At which time, I kept the site private and only invited a few friends, but the site was opened publicly in March of 2009 and anyone can join.

Linda:How many members do you have there now?

Moon: We currently have 48 members.

Linda: Fourty eight and growing correct?  What do you think is special about your site and would draw people to join us there?

Moon: Yes the site has new people joining each day now. What is special about Moonbeams is that I hope guests would see that it is a personalized site. One where there is no stress and few limits on what you can say or do. I hoped to created a central meeting place. Our only rules are please be polite to others and do not post x-rated material as some may find this offensive. My hope is that my members will
feel safe and secure to be themselves allowing us to grow as a community and as friends. 

Linda: What demographic are you targeting?

Moon: Everyone is welcome, however, most of our members tend to be 30-50 years old. I find that we tend to be in the same stages of our lives. I feel this will help us better relate to one another.

Linda: How many people have you helped that are members there now to promote their content?

both of whom are currently on tour.Moon: It is very exciting, we have two members that are from professional bands, State of Men and MoonAlice. We have several gifted writers and and accomplished artist not to mention all the hidden talents  our members have not shared yet! I do not really consider it helping I guess.. so much as giving friends a forum to showcase their talents.

Linda: One of the things I always look at before I join a site is how easy it is to get around. How easy would you say your site is to navigate?

Moon: Nothing hard and complicated here! Nope! That’s for sure. I do my best to keep Moonbeam’s fun, easy and light heated! Because the last thing any of us need is more stress!

Linda: Any Final thoughts before we go Moon

Moon:  In this difficult time, it is important to find friendship and support. I hope you will give us a look and help our community grow. Everyone’s opinion and input is vital!

Thank you so much Moon for giving me your time and explaining your new site. I have only been there a short time but in doing so have made a few great friends and enjoy my time there.
