What a year it’s been. We launched this website and online community last October feeling confident that this is the direction that we were being called. Small groups were created and one-by-one, you reached out to us to help lead these groups that have made up our community and for that, we will forever be grateful.
Over the summer, our admin team took a laissez faire approach to the TRIBE to see how the community could thrive on it’s own.
Looking through the reports, we quickly noted that the TRIBE has not been able to sustain itself. Yes, it has continued to grow — but the interaction is less than 10% of what it was in April.
What we all did find interesting is how many people reached out to us via Instagram thanking us for our “community” when they weren’t even members of the TRIBE. This definitely told us something important… we can create a sense of community and provide resources without hosting a very expensive, not-so-mobile-friendly TRIBE on our site.
With sadness, I am announcing that the TRIBE will be closed down on Friday, August 21, 2020. We will be using the resources from the website to grow our resources and support that our community has continued to use. In addition, we are planning to launch a podcast show, host additional webinars this fall and eventually our very own Autoimmune Sisters live-streamed conference.
We will continue to be the No. 1 online community for women with autoimmune diseases by sending out a monthly newsletter full of resources, support and community. I would be honored if some of you were interested in helping me a few times a year!!
Thank you again for your incredible willingness and service to all of the women here at Autoimmune Sisters and for taking the time out of your busy lives to help love these women with us over this past year.
