Violating new rule: second post of the day...Kudos to Diane...Freelancer cooperative update...

Yeah, I know. I said "one blog post per day until the end of May." Well, I lied. That's because I meant to mention this the other day and somehow neglected to do it.

The Freelance Writer Cooperative plan is still chugging along, although it is taking a bit longer than originally planned. My consultations with designers led to a cost estimate for the cooperative site that was way beyond any budget I could dream up for the thing. Diane Penna, who has been on top of this thing since the beginning, decided that "where there is a will, there is a way" and started looking at some other options.

This has led her to start doing some experimentation with different ways the site could be built without using an outside design team or coder. She's looking at various templates and build options now and anyone who embraced this idea will owe her a debt of gratitude once it is up and running. You can check out her rundown of the situation here. Leave a "thank you" in the comments along with any hints/suggestions/recommendations.

We aren't sure if we will be able to provide a way of doing this that offers every single bell and whistle interested parties requested, but I do think that her efforts will soon lead to a very workable site that should meet member needs. Be on the lookout for future updates soon.
