"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Website Maintenance

The project:
Maintain website for nonprofit organization

20 minutes today, but countless hours since building the site

Why bother?
When I joined TriCity Sound Chorus, a charter chorus of Sweet Adelines International, existing leadership was interested in a web presence. Using VERY crude software tools, I'd created my own ugly website, but knew I could do better. With proper software, a steep learning curve, countless hours smacking my forehead and plenty of persistence, I got it done. Now it only takes a few minutes each month to update the site.

Worth it?
Yes. I usually enjoy learning new things, and the chorus has been pleased with the site. I like to think it may also be helping to spread the word about barbershop for women.
