Back in November 2004 I became an admin of GAWDS. But at the time I wasn’t happy with my name appearing on the front page. I don’t go out looking for praise, and felt uncomfortable with my name appearing. I didn’t feel that my involvement, or my accessibility knowledge, was good enough to warrant such a high profile.
So what changed?
No much is the short answer. I still feel uncomfortable about it, but I am now doing more within the Guild than I have before. The time was right, even if I wasn’t ready for it. It was also necessary for some of the work I am now tackling for the Guild.
I am of course extremely proud that not only am I member of GAWDS, but an admin as well!
