As described here, Friends in Iowa Yearly Meeting (Conservative) have wanted to collect stories of Quakers and their lives, to preserve and to share. The Quaker Story Project website categorized the stories so they could be searched by person, subject, etc. This was based on putting the stories in an online SQL Server database. Unfortunately, the visual presentation of the stories wasn’t great.
Now that I’ve had experience with WordPress and blogging with this website, I realized moving the stories to a blog would have many advantages. The visual presentation of the stories and photos is so much better. The WordPress blogs are mobile-friendly, that is they work well with cell phones, too. And the stories can still be searched by person or topic. And it can be made possible to allow people to leave comments about the stories.
And of course we are hoping more and more Friends will submit their stories to add to the collection.
