Alan, is this what you want?

(1) Personal site (own content)
(1) Personal guide to a city (own content - sporadic updates)
(?) Soccer team (other’s content – weekly updates)
(4) Caterer (mostly static, new recipes each quarter)
(4) Solo consulting business (mostly static)
(4) 4-physician medical practice (mostly static)
(4) Small private school (mostly static)
(5) Congressional candidate (candidate provides very frequent updates)
(5) Family memoirs (several folks create content and email it to me, 75,000 words so far)
(5) Neighborhood association (several folks create content on a regular basis)

I do all of the publishing for these.  I’m about to hand the school site to someone else when he gets the courage.  None are community sites in the sense that several folks update the site to a common database.  They are in the sense that I publish content provided by community members.

Thanks tk. That's exactly the kind of thing I'm polling for.

Others, please chime in. If you can include URLs, please do.

I guess fits into your "day job" category - #4 - though it's a bit strange thinking of my carefree life of self-employment (yah, right) that way.

1) personal site with minor writings
2) another personal site on game history
3) several articles on aircraft
4) two online books

In general my use is not what CD is built for. I make many small edits to a fairly static set of articles, as opposed to writing many new articles that then remain static. However, with the exception of a soon-to-be-available-feature, CD is largely perfect for my use pattern too.

1. Personal Site - place for writings, photos, blog, whatever

I'm developing my site in CityDesk... I'm still deciding on the design right now, and eventually I'll be using it to promote my band.

4. Site for your "day job" - business related

I also use CityDesk at work to develop varius internal websites for the company's Intranet.

4. Site for your "day job" - business related

mainly I post daily summaries of my lectures along with related assignments. The main advantage of citydesk here is that it automatically maintains the index page and keeps track of dates posted. Also, the automatic synchronization with the server is nice, especially when I discover errors after postings.

I'm currently running 2 sites under CityDesk, the first is my "family" site at .

The second is an issues site I use to post my commentary about things I have an opinion about: .

I currently manage/own 7 sites, 2 are CityDesk driven, 1 is a redirect to another (will be it's own standalone soon), 1 is a bulletin board only, the other 3 are php/mysql driven. By mid-summer I hope to have CityDesk integrated in some way with all of them.

CityDesk is just too easy for building content. I firmly believe "content is king" and anything that keeps me out of Dreamweaver and Notepad writing HTML tags the better!

personal site, to make use of my Sympatico space and to give me a spot to throw learning against the wall.
