Hi everyone... I'm exec director for a nonprofit trade association and joined CC in January. I've sent out two newsletters, several bulletins and am working on a third newsletter. We eliminated our printed newsletter completely.
We've had a web site for several years but I am unhappy with the provider. I'm stuck with them by contract for another two or three years. Their utilities are clunky and every time I try to upload anything it goes into terminal "blue circle of death" mode, SO I'm wondering how - or if - I can set up a CC website/blog that people could easily find, to sort of side step the current web site.
As you might have guessed, I'm not exactly a techie.
I'm not sure why you have signed a contract. Hosting companies I've used have never requried one. Perhaps you did this with the company that built your website as a package deal? If so, I would try talking to them and discuss your frustrations. If they're a reasonable company that's also concerned about their reputation, maybe they can find a solution for you and/or let you out of the contract.
I'm not sure about CC blog but you can set up a free blog easily through Wordpress.com or Blogger.com. There are also hundreds of free templates you can use online.
