I am reviving the MGCP NewsRoom that was deleted from the FriHost servers due to inaction. Right now, I am still in the process of setting up the content management system for newsposting and the tutorial site. At the moment there are two or three who have shown their interest in publishing for the NewsRoom. We need more if we would like to have fresh news even on a daily basis.
The NewsRoom is found here. It runs on WordPress although the tutorial site runs on Joomla. The tutorial site became necessary because even volunteers need to be shown how to post through a website in the shortest time possible. After all, they will be logging into the NewsRoom using their own modem connections. Tutorials will also cover writing tips for non-journalists. I think this last is obviously needed since not all who volunteer are writers.
As part of the plan for encouraging volunteers to post in our NewsRoom, I am using the new group facilities of my Friendster account to drum up volunteers. I was told that we have young parishioners with Friendster accounts. I am banking on these webbies to make their contribution to the building up of our parish community through the web.
