For what it's worth, website builder tools have gotten a lot better in
the past few years. Many musicians, callers, and dance organizers are
now using sites like squarespace.com
instead of hiring web

Dear Shared Weight musicians,
Do you have experience in WordPress design? Do you love Shared Weight? Shared Weight is
looking for a volunteer to help us on a well-defined website development task.
Essentially, we need someone to create a wordpress site that will serve as a new website
Here are a few details:
--> There would be a few additional pages to what is on the current site, but as you
can see, our needs are relatively basic. (Template/model pages for each of the lists, FAQ
for the whole site, etc)
--> The Shared Weight team would like to have some say into the look of the site but
we also welcome your ideas.
--> You will not need to be responsible for maintaining the site - simply creating the
templates will be a great help! We will provide all the content for the site and can even
populate the content once you have created the template if you don’t want to do the
initial upload of text.
Please email Emily at emily(a)cdss.org if you are interested in helping us on this
***An exciting heads up about Shared Weight*** The new wordpress site is part of an
exciting new initiative for Shared Weight. Seth Seeger and Chris Weiler (Shared Weight
founders) have partnered with Ridge Kennedy (Trad Dance caller listserv), Alan Winston
(English Country dance listserv), and Weogo Reed (Contra Sound Forum) to collectively
update and enhance the lists. All six lists will be hosted on an upgraded Shared Weight
software platform with the new website and better mailing list software. We will also be
doing lots more promotion of these lists. Emily (CDSS Consultant) is helping to
coordinate some of this work and so am the contact for finding a wordpress volunteer.
Watch for more updates from the Shared Weight team over the next new months!
Seth & Chris
