Because we rural people like to stay connected, local community websites are common projects. But how do you make a good one?
That’s what your fellow reader Sean wants to know:
I am looking into creating a web site for our small town. My goal is to have a central place to highlight the local business, have a central calendar of events and other related news and information. I was wondering if you could recommend an existing platform or examples of other successful small town web sites.
Do you know of a great small town website? I just ran across this good-looking site, The Winterset Citizen by Julie Freirer.
Do you have ideas of what you’d like to see, if your town had a community site? How do you make it pay for itself? Please, share your thoughts in the comments, or by hitting reply if you’re reading this in your email.
