  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    You’ve only recently started a blog, so it’s yet hard to say whether you’ll have a focus on HIV/AIDS or not. As your top two posts currently are on HIV/AIDS, I figured I’d leave this response anyway.

    You might be interested in http://HealthDev.net, a social news network focusing on AIDS and TB.

    Registration and submission on HealthDev.net is very simple. I’d love to see you submit original content or simply link to relevant stories and pocasts from your blog.
    You’re also, of course, very welcome to comment and vote on other people’s articles. I’m almost sure you’d be the first Passionist Sister to do so 😉

    The north America group on HealthDev.net isn’t too busy, but both the Asia and Africa groups are:

    Asia: http://healthdev.net/site/index.php?g=273
    Africa: http://healthdev.net/site/index.php?g=258

    There’s a plethora of RSS feeds available, so I’d appreciate it if you’d consider putting up relevant news from HealthDev.net on your blog.

    If you have any questions, don’t hesitate asking.

    Hope to hear/read from you soon!

  2. Thanks for your comment Babak. I’ve signed up at HealthDev.net. The resources there will be very helpful for me. The Passionists work with people living with HIV/AIDS in many parts of the world. My job is to represent the Passionists and the people they serve at the UN, so I want to learn as much as I can.
    I’m still figuring out how to use the various features of WordPress. I’ll do the RSS feed as soon as I figure out how.
