Welcome to the Atlanta 9to5 Blog!

October 15th has finally arrived! Today is Blog Action Day and also the launch of the Atlanta 9to5 blog! If you have any questions about the blog, we'll answer them here...

What will you write about on the Atlanta 9to5 blog?
We will write about issues that matter to you! Because of the upcoming election, the focus of our initial posts will be our Election Connection Campaign. Then, we'll start posting twice weekly about many other issues that are important to you, such as maternity leave, FMLA coverage, sexual harassment, and the work done by the Georgia Minimum Wage Coalition and the Georgia Job/Family Collaborative. We're always open to suggestions if you'd like us to write about something you care about!

Who writes blog entries?
For now, the Atlanta 9to5 blog will be written by staff, interns, volunteers, and board members. However, its main purpose is to foster conversation among working women. We want you, our members and activists, to use the blog as a forum for conversation by commenting on posts, sharing ideas, and making your voice heard.

How can I get involved?
It's easy! Anyone can comment on posts, either by choosing the "name/URL" option and entering a name you would like to be identified by, or by posting anonymously. If you have any technical questions about using the website, please don't hesitate to contact the Atlanta 9to5 office at 404-222-0037.

Don't forget to check back later this afternoon for our Blog Action Day post!
