Raw Charge has been open for business for more than 18 months now... We got underway at the tail end of the 2008-09 debacle and understandably, there weren't many people around.
Since then, we've seen a huge influx in traffic over the past season and most recent off-season. We've got a good deal of participants in our game threads, we've got people lurking and reading the stories and FanPosts and FanShots... Raw Charge has 568 followers on Twitter and 225 fans on Facebook.
All right, cool, bonus! Now, who are you?
We did this last year (and I borrowed the idea from Die By the Blade to begin with). It's a chance to do some community building and a chance to poke your head out of your shell and say "hello" if you haven't done so before. That, and of course re-introduce yourself for the new season so that newbies know who you are.
The objective of this exercise is to get to know one another better so you can share as much or as little information as you would like. You can share how you became a Bolts fan, where you currently live, your most vivid Tampa Bay Lightning memory, some other interest and hobbies you have or anything else you feel would be relevant. I would also love to hear how you found Raw Charge.
You know, just introduce yourself.
It doesn't matter if you have been commenting on posts or not. I welcome everyone to share a little about themselves and their love of the Lightning. If you've been lurking and thinking about commenting, this is the perfect opportunity to break the ice and say something.
