Ray Blavatt, OBHS Web Administrator, was the featured guest at our August 16th, meeting on “How to Blog on the New Ocean Beach Historical Society Blog Site.”
In the last several months Ray, and his wife Kathy, another board member who is a designer/illustrator, have designed and put up our organization’s new website & blog at: http://www.obhistory.wordpress.com
The new site is receiving a wonderful response. Ideas, comments and archival material are coming in.
OBHS wants Obecians, and others, to be an interactive part of the site and help us show our unique community and its history. That way others can see how special our beach berg is.
At our meeting Ray talked about where the group wants to take the site and how you can be part of that.
Ray will talked about the technical “nut & bolts”, answered questions, and saw what people want on the site.
Ray has an extensive background in web development and Flash animation. He and his wife run their business in their Ocean Beach home.
