I've been wondering if there would be enough
interest (and traffic) to
form an email list for contra dance website webmasters and other content
creators (e.g., people posting videos to youtube) and people maintaining
contra dance related "pages" on Facebook to discuss some of the issues and
ideas and share links, etc.
I created the website
I'm always looking for good videos to share (see the "Announcements"
page) and links about contra dancing (see the "What is Contra Dance?" and
"Dance Links" pages). I also help maintain the "South Florida
page on Facebook.
In particular, I think that finding, generating, and sharing fresh content
is the kind of thing that will keep our web sites looking current and
vibrant and will spark interest. I also think it's important to design for
both the current dancer (when and where is tonight's dance or next month's
festival?) and be informative and welcoming to the uninitiated. Sharing
relevant, high quality links will also help make sure that search results
yield the best information about our beloved activity.
As for folks posting to YouTube... as a caller, I often want to know the
name and author of the dance being done!
Respond to this thread and if there's enough interest, perhaps we can
convince the kind folks who run SharedWeight.net
to start a new mailing list
Let me know what you think!
like me on Facebook!
