We’ve heard this call-out in our survey results and we feel the same as many of you do. We want to do all we can to support the community in a move to a world that works for everyone.
There’s a level of ‘chomping at the bit’ going on over here. We’re like the race horse who just wants to run at the start of the race.
Seemingly, all of a sudden, it feels like the opportunity to push ahead and begin to create in alignment with new paradigms is available, where before it’s always seemed to be not the right time quite yet.
We’ve just been through a time where our staff has been significantly reduced for several different reasons. We thank those who’ve served here so long and so well, and bless them in their new endeavors. However, because of this, the workload per individual has grown to ridiculous and untenable proportions. We need help to continue to produce the high-quality content blog we love and to expand it as well.
You’ve seen, and will continue to see, various positions offered to our community for those who wish to serve as a volunteer, as all of us who are here in service already are volunteers.
I’m not going to pretend that what’s needed and asked for is less than intense devotion. This is a daily blog, and most all the positions will ask that someone give their time every day to a task, no matter how big or how small. Such devotion to even ‘small’ tasks is no small thing!
In the years I’ve led the Golden Age of Gaia forum team, I haven’t missed a day. Every day I give my attention and love to this. This is how I serve, and so I understand firsthand how much is asked when we ask for such devotion.
It’s an immense amount to ask for from a volunteer, and yet, I also know there are those among you that have such devotion.
We need your skills and your willingness to apply them with us in the daily creation of this blog. Only you will know if this is in your life plan and if you have the juice and devotion for it.
If you feel you do, please come forward and allow us to see if we can find a placement that brings you the joy of playing an integral part of the creation of the blog going forward. The return in the satisfaction of knowing your time is well spent in service to a whole lot of people is mighty!
Our greatest need right now is for at least one proofreader and probably at least two transcribers. These are high-level positions which require quite a bit of time from whomever wishes to do them. Basic skill levels need to be reasonably high here as well.
We also need at least one and maybe two new editors to help us post. Knowledge of WordPress is a good thing, but training is available.
For those mighty lovers who feel personally called to action, please use the “Contact Us” feature on the blog (above, top) to let us know what skills you have to offer, and be sure to put the position you’re interested in in the subject line so that it gets to the right person in a timely fashion. We’re overloaded with tasks right now, so forgive if it takes a bit to get back to you.
In closing, I’d like to thank Archangel Michael for this platform, and to acknowledge that He will inspire the right people to come forward at this time. This is His platform, and it’s a privilege to be a part of it. Thank you, AAMichael, for all the support!
