Journal: BitPass User Group

I'm working on a BitPass User Group website. The goals of the website are:

to facilitate reviews of BitPass-enabled content (so you can get your quarter's worth)

to inform users of new BitPass content

to discuss how best to use BitPass to generate revenue

to encourage use of BitPass by showing that a market for BitPass content exists
