Mind you, that’s not to say that I maintain them all religiously. In fact, they go in cycles. An environmental and social justice activist, I’ll set up a site or blog for a specific campaign, then tend to neglect it when that campaign is over. Some of these campaigns go on for years, so over time, I’ve set up and abandoned quite a few sites.
Now, thanks to the wonders of WordPress, they are all sheltered here under one integrated roof. I’ve also included a link to my original freelance portfolio site from way back in Web 1.0 days. (You can return here from the standalone portfolio site by using the ‘blogs’ link.)
- Dandelion Times and its Russian edition
- Lovers of Life
- Majority Coalition Canada
- My freelance writing portfolio
I’ve also become proficient in building sites with Drupal, a more powerful (but more difficult) content management system (CMS). Here are my three campaign-related Drupal sites. All of these campaigns are now complete:
- Community Media Canada
- Vancouver Island Social Housing Residents Association (VISHRA)
- Citizens Coalition On $ewage Treatment (CCO$T)
I also set up and ran an eBook conversion and publishing service for writers, musicians and all kinds of digital creatives: Pegasus Press. Nice try, but too much work for insufficient returns.
And my most recent and now handed over to the group to manage, Victoria PiMakers And Others, a WordPress site for the Meetup group of the same name, focussed on embedded Linux systems such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and Others.
