PauseTalk is now an .org, officially.

I don’t know why I waited so long to do this, but I finally went and got the domain for PauseTalk, and that’s where the site now resides (instead of as folder on this site). It doesn’t really change things much, but there’s something satisfying about having it be its own thing.

The series is on its summer break right now, what with August being a skip month (the next event is set for September 3), but I do have some PauseTalk-related things I want to get to during this time, first of which is to update the site. I don’t plan on changing the design much, but I will be moving it to theSkeleton framework (which I’m using on this site), in order to have it be more mobile-friendly (i.e. responsive).

Another thing — and it’s something I’ve mentioned a few times — is my desire to let PauseTalk go out in the wild, to let anyone do one, and the first step for that is to put together a little document — a manual or sorts — that will act as a resource on how to organize one. It will be very simple, and will be made up of a few guidelines to help you start one up.

The other thing is that I’ve been wanting to start a mailing list for PauseTalk, as a better way to remind everyone about upcoming events — since the move from group to page on Facebook as made it impossible to send messages to those who follow it there. I’ll be using Mailchimp, and you can sign uphere — the first one should go out in a week or two, once I have a few subscribers.

And that’s about it for now. Michael Holmes was under the weather this month so didn’t make it out to Vol. 62, which is why we don’t have a new batch of photos, but I’ve adorned this post with an oldie but goodie from March’s Vol. 58. You can of course see all of Michael’s photo galleries from the eventson Facebook.

So to stay updated, subscribe!
