But once we’re friends you’ve got to start pulling your weight in our relationship: invite your other friends to green events, write notes about political issues, post cool green links and help us get the word out!
Everyone’s heard about twitter even if you’ve never used it. That’s because twitter is just so hot right now. Twitter lets you “tweet” to your friends by sending them short text updates they can receive on their computer or phone.
If you become our follower and you start tweeting about your thoughts on green issues we promise we’ll listen.
Blogging has entered the mainstream and has become one of the best ways to start having your own say. Why? Because blogging has let us regular folks start making some noise! (and we in the green party, with our belief in participatory democracy, just love that). Even traditional media are looking to blogs for views and information and you might even end up quoted in the news!
While it does seem like everybody and their mother has a blog these days we are calling out to you (yes, you specifically) to start blogging about your own take on green issues.
Starting a blog is easy! Check out these free blog sites to get started.
