I do web development, specializing in PHP/MySQL.
Much of my website development experience is with Wordpress, but I will work with other content management systems and have even designed my own when circumstances required it.
Though primarily a programmer and system administrator, I have the necessary connections to arrange graphic design, illustration, logo design, and promotional materials (gear with your name on it...).

Annetta "Nettah the Edittah" Ribken is my editor. She is awesome. She understands genre. She understands weblit. She can give you line edits, coaching, and story construction help. I highly recommend her.
I've been trying to figure out how to do resource listings, and I've got it sussed halfway; I know how to do the other half, I just need some content first and some time.
Right now we have:
Twitter hashtag chats
Listings, review sites and guides
...and we've had a request for a registered user list, which is a separate animal and will be implemented at about the same time as the finished pages for these listings.
Other thoughts for listings:
Good advertising venues (specific sites to advertise on)
POD presses, including t-shirt presses
I'd like to be able to see a full list of registered users. Right now, it's hit or miss: if I see someone's post or that you're online, I can click to see what you've put in your profile. If I don't see you, your post, or I do see something shiny--
I was just wanting to show off my character art in the ad design thread... it's all links, not the same. Or maybe an image gallery?
Project Wonderful is many WebLit authors' ad-service of choice. This would be because it is awesome. PW has help available on its website, but I figrued a thread here wouldn't hurt. I thought maybe we could compare ad strategies, anything from what sites to buy ad displays on, what sort of ads work best on certain sites, etc. I'll be posting advice on ad design here too.
Char and I run a studio called Infernal Shenanigans. We do design and illustration. We decided to offer ad design to WebLit Authors at discount rates. What this means is that we'll design ad graphics for you for use as Project Wonderful banners and buttons, linking graphics, etc. I've got pricing info here:
And there's a small gallery of sample ads here:
-- You can now enter information about yourself and your projects in your profile. Click the "edit" tab, and then the "Writerly Information" tab.
-- You can now add a signature to your posts. You always could, but I didn't explain it well (or at all). Click the "edit" tab, and scroll down to "signature." Don't put in a line at the top; the software does that automatically.
Um, there may be more stuff but I forget right now. If I remember, I'll add it here.
OK, so, I kind of want a WebLit t-shirt pretty hard. And maybe a bumper sticker (or five). Does anyone object to finding a POD merch and slapping up some gear? Not for profit -- we're not set up for that, and I don't think I can find too many people that get their rocks off setting up nonprofit corporations, even though I kind of get a kick out of forming incs. ^^;;
... although I don't think setting up an informal one would necessarily hurt, but that's a separate topic.
So, t-shirts, anyone?
