About Monica Dear

~ Making a positive difference: building tools for social justice, tech, education, & community ~ Greetings! I am a web developer and have been creating websites since 1999, and started my practice 10K Webdesign in 2004. I currently work for organizations focused on environmental sustainability, economic justice, and entrepreneurship: typically government, public agencies, trade associations, non-profits, & startups. I primarily work on the Drupal platform but that is for more complex sites: you can use free services and potentially Wordpress if it's a basic site with pages and posts. I can help you with setting up your website to do things like: collecting dues for access (i.e. subscription-based membership website), e-commerce (digital or physical products), calendar of events, member-access "group discussions," blogs, announcements/news, press releases, mappable locations, competition entries and reviews, and more. Here are some of my sample websites You can read more about my personal philosophy and what I'm interested in at: My hope and focus is to build community, foster connectedness, and use my tech & management skills to make a better world. I believe each of us has an ability/obligation to use our knowledge, ideas, & talents to advance fairness, justice, safety, health, sustainability, & wellbeing. My passions are sustainability, social justice, diversity, entrepreneurship, education, & science/tech for positive social change. I am also a writer for different blogs such as Chatbots, Vistage, Women on Business, 30 Steps to Starting your Green Business, Social Networking for Women in Business, and 51 Ways to Build your Community of Clients Online. I teach an online course for the Nonprofit Technology Professional certificate by NTEN on "Develop Good Data Practices" and in the past have also taught "Building a Culture of Diversity and Inclusion." I am a recipient of the 2018 NTENny award. I am on staff at Lullabot, a digital agency, and a board member at Green America, a national nonprofit focused on environmental sustainability and economic justice. I am very interested in connecting with anyone who is committed to making a measurable positive difference through their efforts in entrepreneurship and social justice. Do reach out if there is something you'll want to discuss. Please reach out if there is anything in my description that matches your more
