This is the first installment of what I hope will be a long running feature: “Website of the Week“. I’ll try to add a new one every Monday. Right now I have about two months’ worth lined up, so we should be okay for quite a while.
The Voice of Arizona is a new website that promotes “Articles by the people, for the people”. Anyone can sign up for a free membership and post articles as well as rate and comment on other people’s articles. There is already quite a lively core group of users on the site. Other features include a business directory, classified ads, restaurant reviews, and an events calendar. Also, for a small monthly fee, members can build and manage their own website using the online website builder. A free trial is available for those who are interested.
So why am I promoting an Arizona website now that I’ve moved to Ohio? Quite simply, I helped build the thing! Especially the website builder, so be sure to give that a spin. And the guys responsible for it plan to launch a separate “Voice of” website for each of the other 49 states over the course of the next year or two. I hear Colorado is next, but that’s just a rumor.
By the way, if you’re wondering why most of the members are so liberal, it may be because advertising during Al Franken’s radio show was much more economical than during Rush Limbaugh’s. Hey, if you don’t like it, sign up and defend the conservatives of Arizona from all the left-wing nutjobs. Just don’t be surprised if they happen to bite back.
