My Uneventful 3rd Blogiversary
I was hoping to say that I have blogged every day for three years as of today, but sadly, and very frustratingly, the past couple of days I have been otherwise occupied. So here I am, on the third anniversary of Animal Person, asking for advice that has nothing to do with veganism or animal rights (and I've tweeted about this so some of you already know what's coming). And I cannot say I haven't missed a day for three years.
I'm in the position of having to build a website for a child welfare organization. From scratch. And this isn't really my area but I'm willing to take it on (because our quoted price was $500 for the template and $249 for hosting, and that sounds like a lot to me, particularly considering we'd be doing all of the content and updates–not them).
A simple design with room for video, secure donations, a blog, capturing e-mail addresses, a twitterfall or something like it, social networking buttons, pdf newsletters, a calendar of events, volunteer information, lots of pictures and lots of space. Luckily, we have a logo.
Joomla, WordPress and GoDaddy were suggested so far.
Remember that this isn't a blog, but might include one.
Anyone have suggestions or advice? Any guidance is appreciated.
And on a down note, Gray Momma of Project Treadstone was hit by a car and euthanized a couple of days ago. It was heartbreaking for the women at the site.
Also, there are three kittens, who are the only kittens since Project Treadstone began, so that's not so bad. The women are doing their best to keep tabs on them and their mom so they can trap them.
The good news is that, including the kittens' mom, there are only four cats remaining at the site who need to be sterilized! In about four months, the entire site of about 30 cats is almost done! Of course some of the original inhabitants migrated across the street to an abandoned building, and that's next. But we have made progress, and that's good news to me.
I started this blog for Barbaro, and this third anniversary post is for Gray Momma.
And to you, thanks for reading and writing.
