In the approximately 24 hours since my Freecycle group was approved, 40 people have joined. I haven't even begun promoting it yet! Frankly I am puzzled as to how they found it, since last time I checked it wasn't in Google or in the Freecycle zip code search yet.
Oh, and I also got an email from a local reporter who wants to do a story on it.
I told him, yeah, good luck with that "getting a photo of people doing an exchange" thing. (Only in nicer words of course.)
