I put together a presentation for Roundtable on using WordPress.com as a host for unit web pages. I made a sample unit site in about 20 minutes over my lunch break and showed it to unit leaders along with a few other solutions but I think there as some lingering skepticism.
Scoutmaster: Sure, it’s easy for you, but how do we know it’s something we can figure out?
