Today I actually made some posts to The De Soto Explorer and talked some more with Estuardo about daily operations. We spent a couple hours going over the CMS for the site and talking about the tone and general personality of the site as far as it’s relationship with the community is supposed to go. From there I spent some time alone in De Soto taking some photos, mainly of library patrons since everyone was staying indoors because of the severe weather that passed through this afternoon. One of those got posted as the Photo of the Day, you should check it out. I also learned how to make and embed a poll for the community and transcribed a contributed column of recent goings-on for De Soto.
Tomorrow should be fun because (weather permitting) I get to photograph some classic cars in historic, Downtown De Soto. Even if it rains, though, it should be a fun day because I’ll be spending more time just meeting people in De Soto and getting a better idea of what the common stories and threads of the town are.
