HeyReprotech wants to build a searchable website...
Can you help?
Substack, the platform I use to send out these newsletters, has a lot of fine qualities. But searchability is not one. After almost five years of publishing weekly stories, even I have trouble finding what I'm looking for in the HeyReprotech archive.
Take surrogacy stories alone. Where's that one on contracts? Or the one on how Canadian hospitals sometimes won't accept money from international clients? Or the one on how some surrogates miss the intended parents more than the babies? Yeah, they should all be easier to find.
Next year, I hope to do something about this. To mark HeyReprotech's five year anniversary, I want to build a website where these stories can be easily searched by subject. Although I will continue to send out newsletters via Substack, as I do now, the website, I hope, will become the main story repository.
This is a project beyond my technical expertise (and beyond a basic template, I'm told) so I'm hiring someone to design it for me. I will be reaching out to all of you in the coming weeks to help define the search categories that would be most useful. But I'm reaching out now to see if any of you would be willing to make a donation in support of this.
If this is a resource you would value — or that your students, clients, family members, friends or policymakers would value — please consider making a small donation. Any amount will help and all of it will be put towards the website build.
I'd like to help HeyReprotech build a searchable website with this one-time donation.
Thank you for your continued support!
