I first posted on this blog 13 years ago and, despite some help from many people along the way, have been running it mostly singlehandedly. There have been an awful lot of changes to the way people use the web since 2013, not least the rise of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and the amount of work to keep it going has increased greatly.
Lately I’ve been finding it a struggle to balance the work required to maintain a useful resource across all the platforms, as well as having a full‐time job and keeping some kind of personal life. While I’m not planning to give it up any time soon, I wouldn’t mind asking for a bit of help.
I’m looking for volunteers on all the social channels. The work involved isn’t onerous; keep an eye on local news, share/retweet interesting stories, perhaps post the occasional bit of original content. If you’re a Facebook/Twitter/Instagram user who can spare a few minutes every other day or so, I’d hugely appreciate it.
It’s strictly volunteer work, unfortunately; I’m long past the stage where I could usefully earn any money from this. There are occasional opportunities to get invited along to events, but I can’t promise anything.
If you’re suitable and interested, you can leave a comment here, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me on any social channel.
Hope to hear from you.
