    [–] Is the name Homer useable? LilBadApple 4 points ago in namenerds

    I met a Homer at Burning Man a few years ago and he had a big personality and could pull it off but I think you're better off with a different name at this point (due to Simpsons reference).

    [–] Horse trekking for 4 weeks from UB. Suggestions on where to go/what not to miss? LilBadApple 1 points ago in mongolia

    Not at all, I appreciate the honesty. It just sounded like from previous posts (and even from this one, "not enough grass for your horses. Nomads might chase you away if you dare to graze them in what they consider 'their' pastures") s/he's trying to discourage me from taking the trip at all. Since we're literally leaving next Wednesday, that isn't going to happen. Good advice is welcome though. Interestingly the folks at the horse camp told me it has already rained a couple of times. Hopefully they are not intentionally misleading us.

    We're going to Stepperiders for 5 days for training, and they're going to help us buy horses and equipment in EB. Then we're going to do the trek solo. They say they will help us know who to buy from, how much to pay, etc. as well as show us how Mongolian horses are trained and to be cared for, how to provision, teach us some phrases, culture, customs, taboos, etc. From my research they seem to get good reviews (although user above doesn't like them b/c they charge volunteers). Happy to report back!

    [–] Looking to hire new authors to write 1k-2k word community resilience, environmental stories. LilBadApple 1 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago) in freelanceWriters

    Thanks for responding. We're not asking anyone to work for free -- we're offering to republish content (without compensation) OR pay for original stories. Do you have any writing samples you can share with me? I can DM you my email address if you'd prefer to share that way.

    [–] Looking for resources for creating web content for non-white people and engaging readers of color. LilBadApple 1 points ago in DigitalMarketing

    Why is that racist? We'd like to do a better job serving communities of color and our site is currently doing a piss poor job at it. Looking for help to more fully support a diverse community with our resources. I'd genuinely like to know more about how that came across as racist as that definitely isn't my intention. If it matters, I'm white, and not looking to exclude other white folks whatsoever from our site. We'd like to be more inclusive, not less.

    Thank you, I appreciate that. We're leaving next week so I'm definitely not bailing out. We chose Mongolia with the understanding that it is not necessarily an easy place to travel, not expecting much in the form of a tourist industry, with minimal expectations other than being open to the experience of it all. Thank you for the kind warning and the explanation.

    You, my friend, are a funny motherfucker.

    I get the feeling you're trying to deter me from this trip based on your comments to me over the last few weeks. Is there a reason for that?

    [–] Would love to talk to someone skilled in nonprofit digital marketing LilBadApple 1 points ago in nonprofit

    This is a great suggestion, I appreciate it. Much better way of framing the question.

    [–] Would love to talk to someone skilled in nonprofit digital marketing LilBadApple 3 points ago * (lasted edited 16 days ago) in nonprofit

    I understand your point, and sincerely thank you for advocating for fair compensation in the nonprofit sector. But I'm really not looking for much of someone's time and it would be silly to pay someone for a few minutes to type out their top 3 best practices and press send. We hire consultants all the time when needed for big projects but this is just asking for a few words of advice. I receive financial advice on Reddit (as do many others on r/personalfinance, and vet advice on r/askvet, and medical advice on r/AskDocs, and building construction advice on r/BuildAHouse...) – that's one of the things this community is here for.
