After about a year of work, I have decided to stop developing City Propser. My partner on the project recently quit, and I cannot continue to work on the site alone since it’s too much for one person to maintain and we found little funding.
Although it ultimately failed, I still believe that City Prosper is a good idea. We wanted to be Philadelphia’s news source for its non-profit sector. We were aggregating interesting news stories from major newspapers and websites, and planned on writing original news articles to supplement what was missing. I’m proud of the site’s design and that I built it with relatively little coding experience. At least I was able to hone my web development skills–so not all is lost.
Right now, my plan is to continue searching for writing and non-profit sector jobs. I’m still working for Healthcare-NOW, but it’s very part-time.
