RRW Monthly Roundup for January 2018

Readers, I use these sporadic weekly or monthly roundups as an opportunity to write directly to you.

I think you will be interested to know what the top three posts of the month were for January, but I’m writing to tell you that I’m going away later this week and so posting will be lighter until I get back early next week.  I don’t want you to think I’ve quit!

Pushing onward toward July 2018 for RRW’s eleventh anniversary!

Before I get to those top posts, I want you to know that I had a good chuckle this morning about all the trolls this tweet (below) generated yesterday. I guess because I hash-tagged it with a trending tag #SuperBowlSunday it reached beyond my usual fan club.

I got messages about how racist I am (with foul language tossed in), how old I am (do I wear diapers? the ageists asked!) from some high IQ commenters who couldn’t spell or write. It was actually fun to see. Here is the tweet that apparently stirred them up.

I am @RefugeeWatcher….

Here are the Top Three (actually four because there was a tie for #3) Posts of the month:

For new readers……

You can find more information on how to use RRW by clicking here. (That is my mid-December roundup.)

And, you might want to look at my message here about your e-mail notices.  WordPress is telling me it isn’t on their end if you aren’t getting e-mails after subscribing. They tell me it is in your/our e-mail server (I’m not getting my e-mails from Leo Hohmann’s new site.)

Frankly there is more here at RRW then you get in e-mail, so why not just visit every day or so to see what is new.  https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/

Even if you aren’t tweeting yourself, you can see what I’ve tweeted most recently in the right hand side bar.
