Hi Tony, welcome to USFRA. I saw your comment on the Chief's profile and thought I'd take a crack at answering it. Most of us use the site for networking and adding information for our communities and colleagues. Commercial marketing is frowned upon unless you get permission from Traycee or Janet (they usually say yes) they just don't want the other members to be hassled by excessive marketing and spamming.I do know USFRA is looking for training educators or bloggers. I think in return for blogging you get a free ad, or link or something. Hahaha, not sure. I hope I answered your question. If not, give me a holla back. Stay safe.
