Venturing into WordPress, I helped Antoinette Miranda put together her new website that serves as a reference to her campaign for District 6 representative to the Ohio State Board of Education.

It's called Antoinette For Educationat

The site uses a political WordPress theme with some custom colors, headers and layouts, nothing too fancy, mind you. But it also facilitates PayPal contributions -- or contributions from a credit card, if you've linked your credit card and PayPal accounts.

In addition to her candidacy for the state board, Dr. Miranda is a longtime professor at The Ohio State University, specializing in school psychology.

If you're in her district -- all of Delaware and Knox counties and much of Franklin County, too -- please take a look at her materials and support her.

She has a whole child philosophy of education, and she has pledged to work for accountability for all schools and equitable resources for all schools and all students.

Plugins from the premium theme, Frontrunner, by Parallelus, make it pretty easy to collect subscription emails, comments and volunteers, but you really need some coding or a plugin like Seamless Donations to accept campaign contributions like this site's Donate page.

Although I'm a big fan of the Ghost blog platform and use it on my own website right now, the WordPress platform made it easier for me to deliver the site as a turnkey project for the campaign.

Thanks, Dr. Miranda!
