    Brother CT ... you post so many of your links here at destee, i'm just wondering, do you have even one link from your site(s) to us? Most people who promote their sites here, never return the love, though it is not a requirement.

    I've stopped a bunch of other Members from being excessive in adding their links to our site, by deleting them, warning them, etc., for a lot less than you've done. Please read our forum rules - #5 to get an idea on how we usually handle this kind of stuff. I'm trying real hard not to consider all of the links spam, because you add so much great information to the site for the Family.

    Have you considered Becoming a Premium Member, helping to financially support the community, which would allow you to post as many links to your site without it being considered spam?

    I do appreciate you Brother ... :love: ... and i hope this is received in the Spirit that it's being shared.

    :heart:

    Destee, I am sister Ct. I am sorry for the overkill, it just my son has so much history/art and I guess I got carry away with giving out the knowledge on what he has to offer and being blessed to provide Educational knowledge.

    Just as an fyi...my son's site, and my site, doesn't get paid for what we do or the service we provide to thousands of individuals. It is non-profit and given out of the love to provide knowledge and the betterment of our people and community. I am very sadden at the current plight of our people and felt that I have to go in search of ways to get knowledge and information out. I didn't start doing blogs until February and started utilizing forum around the time I started posting on your site. I am fairly new at this type of communication.

    Currently me and my son are the staff for each of our blogs. I maintain his main website along with the weallbe.blog (He provides the material and I set it up for display.) and the ctherd.blogspot.com while the other blogs are maintained by my son.

    One day both visions will prosper in a finanancial way and we would be able to give to your organizations and others that allow us to connect with them.

    I looked at your Rule #5 and will consider becoming a Premium Member, but definitely will make a contribution to your organization.

    I would be more than happy to add your link on his "weallbe" site along with my ctherd.blogspot site. It not that I didn't want to, I never thought about the link until you asked.

    Please believe that I don't take your post as a negative. Sometimes people are not trying to use or take advantage, it just that I am trying to push the "we/village" approach in helping one another. I would like to help as many "Class of 2007" students/parents along with future and current college students. In the end, "we prosper when all of us prosper". We must built up our legacies, because they are our future.

    Ct. Herd
