Almost everyone I know who tried to manage a community part-time has regretted it.
The problem isn’t the limited time available, it’s the level of priority.
You can quickly sense when you’re not someone’s priority.
You wait longer to get a response, your tone of voice is different (more formal, less empathy), and you don’t go the extra mile it takes to make the community a success.
Working part-time is hedging your bets. Either your company is ready to commit to a community and should hire someone full-time…or it probably shouldn’t have one at all.
A community is never going to provide better support, expertise, and connections tomorrow if it isn’t treated that way today.
