This is my way of helping others make a difference

I did a thing I haven’t told you about yet, but I can tell you about it now because it’s live.  It’s live and it’s out there and, like, real people can see it, and you know?  It’s pretty cool.


At the first rally I went to at the courthouse, maybe five or six weeks ago, I met a woman who was taking email addresses for the local chapter of NOW.  They had just started up, didn’t even have their officers selected, and they were looking for members.  I went to the monthly meeting four weeks ago, and before I knew it, I had volunteered to be their tech person.


In the last month, I have worked with the president of the chapter (the woman who was taking email addresses – more on her some other time) to create and manage the official website of the South Willamette Valley chapter of the National Organization for Women.

I really should just upload the official logo. Instead, this is a picture I took of a banner with the official logo. Please don’t let this affect your opinion of my technical skills.

I am the web master, I am a member of the PR team, and I am a member of the Budget and Finance committee (because, like Mom, I sometimes have a hard time saying no to things).


The website is live as of today (, the March monthly meeting is tomorrow night (Monday), and the plan is to tell everyone about it then even though it still has a couple of placeholders.  Don’t tell me if you hate it, do tell me if something is wrong with it, and no, I’m not fishing for compliments.  In fact, let’s just stop talking about it.

    Hooray! You’re awesome and the website looks great! (I think Dad might be looking at the text of the pics you have posted as links at the bottom of the home page.)

    Thank you, thank you, and thank you, and Dad: if it’s NOT the Instagram tiles you’re talking about, let me know. (And you can click on them to make them bigger.) I’ll see if Laurie wants to make it clearer that those ARE coming from Instagram.

    I’m really proud of you! Of course, I was before. BUt you have to practice saying, No. Somehow, even when I practice and I set myself up to be determined, I still get sucked in. But not only are you contributing but you’re also gaining something.

    Love you
