I’ve discussed the mission of my media project and I’ve offered some thoughts on the content, the sources and a few of the ways people would adopt it.
Now on to the practical issue: How do you build it?
When thinking about this project, a few things really matter:
- It’s got to be simple. Simple to add content, simple to upload multimedia, simple to experience.
- While we’re at it, it should look professional.
- Must haves include: Navigation, search, subscription.
Too steep of a price? No worries – there are tons of free themes out there and a with a little tweaking of some CSS code (sounds scary, but not bad) you can make a presentation all your own. Something that truly reflects the community.
And just to prove small community media can do it, visit the Le Mars Daily Sentinel. Nice work.
