WEM on the Move

Hi everyone! Happy Friday.

Catching you up a bit on WEM’s forward movement.

Challenge

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!)

Outreach

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!

Website Upgrades

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.

Writer Profiles

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!

Post Jobs

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.

Retrieving Passwords

Trust me…it’s been a password nightmare for me this week (and I drove poor Laura crazy…thank goodness she’s incredibly patient!)

Some of you have been writing to me about changing your passwords…or actually LOCATING them. Turns out, alas, that I cannot do that from my end. BUT…here are feedback and a  link to details that can help you get started.

  • Basically, verify that the user emails are correct then have them use the forgot password link. You cannot retrieve passwords as they’re stored as an encrypted string.
  • This article lists 7 completely different ways to reset your password.  Any one of them will work and do the job. Find the one that’s right for you and use that: https://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

We will get through this all…I promise.

In the meantime, START POSTING GIGS…and let’s get some jobs from companies, etc., posted…let’s build this out!!!
