Creative Souls Ning Group Will Stay On Line

Creative Souls, our wonderful group on the Ning network will be staying. Yeah !!!!!
We were all so upset when we heard the news that Ning would be shutting all the free sites down. Being one of those free sites our group was in jeopardy. Our courageous leader, Izabella Pierce, sent the word out for all members to join in with ideas on how to keep our group intact. While we still await the notice of how much it will cost us to stay on the Ning Network, we are positive that we will be able to pay the fee.
With a donate button and many ideas in the works we will achieve our goal and remain together. So many wonderful groups will fall to the wayside. I belong to 10 other Ning groups that aren't as lucky as
Creative Souls. They don't have the membership that Creative Souls have and membership equates to money these days.

Everyone is so sad

Well the news is out, most of us know by now that the Ning network is shutting all of our Free sites down sometime in May.
Like so many of us, I belong to almost 10 ning groups, all of which I love for their own uniqueness. Each offers something new to experience and new friends to meet.

While most of the grouups I'm in are all trying to figure out what there going to do, charge a fee to belong or move to another free site, like Yahoo groups.

My main Ning group is Creative Souls and I don't want to have it change. Izabella has put so much into the making of such a warm and welcoming group. I have my own group on her wonderful group site, Sharing Techniques. I sure don't want to see all the hard work I've done go away or to try and transfer all that information from all 222 of my members. I can't imagine how Izabella feels with over 2 thousand members.

We're all in a state of limbo for now, waiting to see what is going to happen in May. I for one am going to start to save as many of my groups techniques in the hopes that they will not be lost if things go the wrong way for us all.
