Hi everyone! Happy Friday.
Catching you up a bit on WEM’s forward movement.
Alas, I’ve had only one challenge taker…thanks Diane Moroff for the great lead. The job was filled BUT I did pitch the site to the person hiring. She was impressed and will use it down the road. So, it’s doable. OK…the challenge will be easier…how about two new potential job posters? The small reward still stands, as does the featured writer offer. (Diane, I will be reaching out soon to learn more about you!)
I am a network hound…so I told just about EVERYBODY I know about the site, encouraging them to post jobs. I even posted on LinkedIn groups. In all of my messages, I underscored that folks need look no further than WEM for the highest quality and most experienced ed writers around. I will be reaching out to former posters to bring them back into the fold, as well.
Newsletter and Blog Writing
We’ve lost a few…and gained a few. So, we are still over 1200. Clearly, WEM has something to offer. A few members will be writing some blog posts for the site. Please let me know if you would like to do the same. I can offer topic ideas or you can work from your experiences. Hearing from each other would be really useful and engaging!
I am meeting soon with a graphic designer who is going to give me some design tips. And, will be meeting with a WordPress expert who can offer upgrade guidance. I am specifically working on the SPAM issue so I can remove the password-protected access. I took it off for about a minute and immediately, all sorts of junk appeared. Disheartening. I would also like to open comments again…once I deal with this spam issue.
Please update your writer profiles to reflect the additional areas of expertise. That list keeps growing as you suggest entries and as I review WEM writers. Such a mix of skills!
Please post jobs you come across. There must be many opportunities out there to share with your peers. I don’t to be the only one!!! Let’s say someone offers you a gig outside of your expertise…post it here!!
Have a great weekend. Thanks for being on this journey with me.
