Growing the Site

Grassroots information sites often start out small, with just a few pages of highly focused, interesting content. Over time, they grow, with new pages and resources added every so often, but this goes only so far. To take the site to the next level, the site maintainer will need to add some way for visitors to participate, turning it into both an information site and a COMMUNITY CONFERENCE (A3) site. This step represents a fundamental shift in how the Web site operates. The site will change from a place where only a few site maintainers collect and disseminate information, to a self-sustaining and ongoing conversation where many people contribute, interact with one another, and create new content about the core topic that brings everyone to the site in the first place.
