Anyone here with their own Web 2.0 communities?

Anyone here with their own web 2.0 social network communities
going strong?

What software/script do you use to create and maintain the
community and and why?

What do you look for by way of security of your members?

Is it easy to find contractors who will do the development
and maintenance for your chosen platform?

Also - any "words of wisdom" for someone who's just starting
to explore setting something like this up? Things to avoid;
things to specify when hiring a developer for the project?

    I don't have my community now although I am planning to build one. I hope you don't mind me to share what I come up with my research.

    The software or services that I think work best for a social community will be between Social Web CMS (social voting site like Digg) or KickApps (full fledge social networking).

    My plan to promote these sites will be via PPC or article marketing. I have not seen a full plan or guide (even paid ones) on how to promote a social community so I guess some Warriors here can come up with one and sell it via WSO.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Haven't Posted in a long while, been off of the scene on IM even longer. Can anyone offer some advice as to where to get restarted? I've made some income from Fiverr in the past by writing review articles, not sure if Fiverr is still a good platform though. Any help would be greatly appreciate also more than willing to become an apprentice and work for the knowledge, not the money.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    The only way to handle having many massive daily goals is by doing them one moment at a time. Don't listen to the narrow-minded people who say that you have to focus on 1 thing and do it will at the expense of everything else. If you want everything, if you want to be financially successful, and healthy, and have great relationships, and be happy, and learn every day, and have family time and more, you're in luck, because you can have it all!
