I’ve taken over webmaster duties for the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization. I’ve been a little skeptical of this organization in the past, but I decided that I should put aside my differences for a time. We need to work together to rebuild our neighborhood and prove our viability to the city.
I’ve become a big believer in the power of blogs. They make it easy for non-technical people to post content to the web. I ran into Alexander Oliver of nola.com at a recent MCNO meeting, and he agreed a blog was the way to go.
So I installed WordPress on their webhost, and on Sunday gave a quick training session to Jim and Wendy, and voila — We’ve got a new website, one which will hopefully be more dynamic, engaging, useful and up-to-date.
Check out the new site at mcno.org.
