With the advent of Facebook and other social media, as well as the ability to comment and discuss topics on the same page as the articles being referenced, the website forums of the late 1990s and early 2000s are dying a slow death.
As I work hard on redesigning, upgrading and modernizing Ask HeartBeat for the 6th time, I seriously considered taking the forums down altogether. However, for old time's sake I think I'll keep this up, at least through the rest of the year.
Look for an announcement about the launch of the new AskHeartBeat.Com in a week or so. I'm porting over content from the existing site so that when the launch is done, there will at least be 100 or so advice columns and 100 or so articles for people to read.
If any of you have an article or poetry that you'd like to submit, feel free to send them to me via PM or by using the Contact form on the home page at http://www.askheartbeat.com
