I’m bummed.

I got an email from announcing that Community Voices was being dropped as of March 31. The E-Word, which just celebrated its second anniversary (the first post was on March 7, 2012), will no longer be available as part of Community Voices.

Whenever I meet people and they learn that my family and I keep alive the advice that Emily started giving more than 90 years ago through The Emily Post Institute, the conversation inevitably turns to etiquette. People have opinions on the subject and they have questions, lots of questions. The E-Word has been a great way to keep the conversation going about current events that touch on how we treat each other as well as exploring a wide variety of etiquette issues.

I’d hate to lose the momentum The E-Word has generated. So with the demise of Community Voices, I plan to continue The E-Word and locate it on the Emily Post Institute’s website,

If you want to continue to enjoy the blog, please visit the Emily Post website where more information on how to connect to The E-Word will appear on our home page shortly.

In parting, I’d like to thank for hosting The E-Word these past two years, and I’d like to thank all of you for reading it and joining in the conversation.
