Here's what's new in KaBOOM! News

I know you love KaBOOM! News, but do you know about all the fun new features it has?

You'll see we now have the news handily divided into five categories:

The "KaBOOM! News" category includes press releases and news clips specifically related to KaBOOM!.

The "Community News" category includes stuff related to you fine folks, the KaBOOM! community.

The "Play in the News" category includes general news about play-related topics.

The "Experts on Play" category is where you'll find compelling articles written by guests who know a lot about play, playground building, childhood development and the like.

The "Tips and Ideas" category is chock-full of...you guessed it...tips and ideas. You'll find tips on grants, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, and more.

Next, there are a couple of other features that are pretty cool...

Favoriting, rating, and commenting

If you click the "Add to Favorites" button, a link to the article will be stored on your favorites page.

It's a page of bookmarks of your favorite news articles.

And like just about everything else on connect.kaboom.org, you can also rate and/or comment on every article that's posted. We'd love to know what you think, so please rate and comment to your heart's content.

That's what's new and cool in KaBOOM! News! I hope you all enjoy. Please send me any comments or feedback you have.
