Hippiegrrl Explains It All

Last Update: Wednesday September 24, 2008  


A couple of weeks ago I wrote an entry on my blog - rise up buffalo - about the demise of Backwash. Talking about the better days, I lamented the onset of newer technologies and how Backwash had been a jumping off point for most of the writers under it’s wing.

Now I have been proven wrong. Like a phoenix from the ashes - Bachwash has returned, if only for a short while. So - while we are here we might as well chat, right?

What have you been up to? What does your future look like? How long do we have to chat? Questions that we can discuss as a community of readers and writers. Click on the link for the message boards and let’s get a conversation going! How can we save this place? Is it even possible?

Until then...
