Today I am very honored to have my husband’s cousin Angie Riley-Camp guest blogging in Our Las Vegas! Recently Angie and her business partner Donna Norris (her daughter was Amber after which the Amber Alert was created) created a much needed new social networking site geared towards families called Porch Patrol.
What is Porch Patrol? That is exactly what Angie is here today to share with the Family and Life in Las Vegas family! Thank you Angie for taking time from your busy schedule to share with my readers.
First, I would like to thank Emily for inviting me to write a guest blog here on Family and Life in Las Vegas.
My name is Angie Riley-Camp and recently my business partner, Donna Norris (mother of Amber of the Amber Alert) and I have created a new social networking site called Porch Patrol.
Have you ever noticed when you’re talking with friends sometimes the subject of your own childhood will come up? Before you know it you are talking about being home before the street lights came on and what it was like before the internet. Soon you are talking about how everyone in the neighborhood knew one another and looked out for each other. How the Moms would swap their favorite recipes and how Dad would never let anyone else touch the grill.
These conversations are always accompanied with laughter and phrases like “Oh yes, I remember that.” and “Wow I haven’t thought about that in years!”. Seems like everyone agrees that the world has definitely changed and we all need that type of connection that we once shared.
The times may have changed but a great many people still share those family values that most of us grew up with and we have created an online neighborhood for people who share these values to connect. Using the technology of today to share the values of yesterday, sounded like a great idea to Donna and I.
However, when we started to discuss this idea with others we were told things like: “It won’t catch on.”, “Too many people enjoy the drama on facebook.”, “Strong family values don’t exist in our society anymore.” and well…you get the idea. So with encouragement from family and others and some hard work (and because I don’t like being told I can’t do something), we created Porch Patrol.
It’s like the other social networks that you are familiar with but a lot more fun. With this online neighborhood, you won’t find the online games that take you away from your family for hours or the drama that no one needs, just friends sharing stories, ideas, status updates and yes, even some recipes.
In the forums section you will find topics like: Grandma-isms, Coupon Fun, Why I Love My Country, Dad’s Favorite Quotes, Funny Mother-In-Law Stories, Proud Mommas and many, many more.
I encourage you all to visit us at Porch Patrol and share your stories and make new friends with strong family values. Please tell your friends about us and help us grow this online neighborhood.
By the way, one of my favorite Grandma-isms is: “Grandma’s don’t jam, they jelly”. You’ll have to join us at Porch Patrol to read the story behind this in the forums section.
Guaranteed to make you smile!
Again, I would like to thank Emily for inviting me to share with all of you and I look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood.
So what are you waiting for? Join today and start meeting your neighbors!
