Ken and I have been working as a team to post interesting web finds for the DC blog (http://blog.donationcoder.com
), but ken is taking a well deserved break so i need to find another person to team up with until Ken comes to his senses.
Basically i (and maybe others) would email you a few interesting urls per day, with a brief word or two, and you would basically visit the webpage and if you agree it's interesting, make a little post on the forum (in the appropriate section) about it, with a screenshot. Sometimes adding a quote from the page, and/or your own comments about why it's interesting. I usually then tag the post as being an official blog item which will show on the http://blog.donationcoder.com
page, but if you want to do that part also that would be even better.
Ken has been using Screenshot Captor
to add the screenshots, which makes life a bit easier as the thumbnail button will resize, create a border, and copy the screenshot path to the clipboard for easy pasting in the DC forum new post form. The "webfind template" drop down box on the new post form also makes it a lot easier to make these posts, but it's still a bit of work to be doing this 4 or 5 times a day.
Being able to add an informed opinion to the posts would definitely help, as would finding cool things to post about on your own from the world of the web, but that's not strictly required.
Anyone want to volunteer? I'll give you a little crash course on the procedure if so (or ken can!). Rewards = fortune and fame and the forum's heartfelt appreciation, minus the fortune and fame.
If you are interested and willing to do it for at least a month, drop me a message via the forum or email ([email protected]
