RVoices Blog Index (for team)
List of blog* posts, divided into sections to help direct users to the most relevant RVoices post to find answers to their questions.
*RVoices blog posts differ from traditional blogs in that they are not the authoritative content of one author. Each post contains snippets of multiple discussion threads found in the various RVillage groups, with links that drive the user back to the RVillage site and into the relevant discussion groups to engage with other RVillagers on the platform. (This is why commenting is turned off at the bottom of posts.) The crowd-sourced content in the posts is therefore almost entirely that of the members of RVillage.
Note: Users can read the discussion threads without joining the groups, but will need to join any group they wish to post questions or answers to.
At the bottom of most posts is a bullet list of active RVillage groups relevant to that topic.
