… what would be a good website to start a group that’s limited to one family? I’ve had this notion for awhile of a site where my sister and I and our cousins could put up photos and send messages and stuff. I don’t really like MySpace. I’m familiar enough with Yahoo and Google’s groups, but am not convinced either is the best. I checked out gather.com yesterday (because of the ads I hear all the time on Marketplace); it’s geared toward the over-30 set, which we all are by now. But I couldn’t really tell anything because I don’t know anyone on gather.com.
Anyone ever try something like this? I’m almost thinking of it as a virtual family reunion. Since we live in at least four states, it would be way cheaper than an actual family reunion, which we’ve been talking about for years now.
Also worth knowing: Is this one of those ideas that sounds good but is doomed to become an albatross around one’s neck if not an abject, ignored failure? (Yes, I have such high hopes.)
