BuddyPress Blog Addon

I know a lot of you have already noticed this and signed up but I never really mentioned it. When I got a lot of work done on my blog I added a plugin called “BuddyPress”. When you are anywhere on my blog, scroll all the way down to the bottom and you will see a small section labeled “BuddyPress”.  If you sign up you will be part of a mini social media, facebook-like forum. A lot of people have signed up but from what I can tell it does not show a list of members. It was sort of confusing at first but after you register, go back to the bottom of my blog and click on your name/profile picture (in the BuddyPress box) to bring BuddyPress up. There you can post “what’s on your mind” or comment on other people’s statuses. You can also set up and edit your profile. So if you haven’t already, register and then try posting or joining a conversation! Hopefully this will work out well enough that people can have conversations about MS without all their family and friends seeing what they are talking about, I get that not everyone has fully disclosed their MS.
