It is my sincere belief that wood is not as highly valued in our society as it once was, and that is in part due to the fact that folks no longer have a regular connection to wood or the world from which it comes. So, by exposing people to various facets, uses, and interesting facts about wood and the forests, I hope that Go Wood in some way helps wood regain the popularity it once had in society.
You can help in this effort by sharing your favorite posts with your friends, co-workers, and customers, by either forwarding the email notice you received, by sending an email link to Go Wood, or by using the "Share It" widget in the right-hand column of the blog. One person can't really make a dent in the culture working by himself, but a bunch of folks working together might just bring wood back to the forefront of our culture and common sense back to our utilization of natural resources.
Every reader of Go Wood is welcome to comment, and all real comments are published, even if they express different opinions than those of the posts (as long as they're stated respectfully). However, I screen out the spam comments which are written for the sole purpose of advertising a product or website. That is why it takes a little while for posts to appear...I have to become aware of the comment via the email the site sends me, and then approve it to post. Just submit once and wait a while; it will appear.
