For the past 12 years, I've been the owner and principal administrator of Cleveland Swings. It's been clear to me for several months that I've taken the site as far as my time and creativity will allow, and that I should hand the reins to someone with the time and talent to take it farther.
So, I'm delighted to announce that Moses Allooh and Max Orsley, both local dancers, have agreed to take on administrative roles at the site. I gave them administrative access about a week ago, and they've spent the time exploring the site and updating its software. Things won't change immediately, but in time they could change a lot. I've pretty much given Max and Moses complete freedom in making over the site.
When I took over the website in 2003, Cleveland Swings was the primary home of the Cleveland Swing dance community. Since then, our online community has split into several different Facebook groups and pages. That certainly has its benefits, but it makes it difficult for people to learn about the community, its events, and to connect with each other. I've made it Moses' and Max's primary mission to make Cleveland Swings the one place people can go to learn everything they can about swing dancing in Cleveland.
As the above implies, I'm going to stay on as site owner and "administrator emeritus." I'll keep paying the bills and assisting Moses and Max where I'm needed. I totally intend to fade gracefully into the background, however.
I've had a lot of fun running the site, and have learned a lot in the process, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what Moses and Max have in mind.
