I have been working on the infrastructure of the ‘Wider Church’ part of the site, with the focus at this stage on Africa. Building the infrastructure for the Wider Church part of the site will take some time to complete, but I think the effort will be worth it and will provide the backbone for what I hope to achieve with it. I do believe this is a very important aspect of the site overall.
The many months of frustration are other – my hosting issues have now been sorted and work has begun on the site once again. For quite some time, I had been unable to update ‘Kevin’s Portal’ and then it disappeared completely. I have finally been able to move that entire site over to the hosting service I use for everything else and it is all up again, along with a few improvements and continuing enhancements. I am just so pleased to have finally got it all sorted, as now I can get on with the work.
Slowly but surely this link will become available across all of my sites – I think all of the Blogs have been updated, along with a few other social networks and web applications (with many more to be updated).
I have also been working on the ‘Wider Church’ section of the site. I am keen to have a page for every nation of the world there eventually, along with various facts and pieces of information concerning the Lord’s work in these places (especially from a Reformed perspective). I will have RSS feeds concerning these countries from my Random Thoughts Blog, which will include various articles and videos on persecution in those countries. This will take time to achieve, but the work has begun.
After months of waiting for some web hosting issues to be sorted over at Kevin’s Portal (which currently isn’t working), so that changes I have been working on could be uploaded, it is clear that the site needs to be moved – which should happen shortly (to the hosts I use for my other sites, which do do a great job – JustHost.com). So once again there needs to be some changes to the site. Frustrating really.
I have just updated what I call ‘Kevin’s Portal.’ It has taken me a while to get several updates to the portal online as I was unable to access the server – I now can obviously.
The latest update includes ‘Kwitter.’ Kwitter is an online daily newspaper of the links I post in Twitter and those of links posted by people I follow on Twitter. It needs to be remembered that I don’t necessarily agree with everyone I follow on Twitter and there are a number of reasons I follow some of these people. Depending on what gets ‘selected’ for this newspaper (it is virtually automatic at this stage) may also determine just who I follow on Twitter. I have no interest in following unwholesome rubbish for example.
This newspaper service is currently in ‘alpha,’ so it is fairly new. I do like the idea behind it though and I think it does have a lot of potential. The actual link to the paper itself (which updates daily) is at:
Work is continuing to progress well on the site revamp, with more work having been done on several of the pages, including the home page of particularbaptist.com, Kevin’s Portal, the Particular Baptist Library wiki and the confessional standards of the site (the standards are now completed).
I have also begun work on the Bible Studies section of the site, with the Romans Bible Studies revamp now being completed. So if you would like to have a look, please do, at:
I have been doing a little bit more work on ‘Kevin’s Portal,’ which is the place that you can go to to see what I’m doing on the World Wide Web. There have been a few minor changes there and these include the following:
1. Scribd: I have embedded my Romans Bible Study series on the portal page as an introduction to my presence at Scribd, the online publishing site. I think Scribd is a wonderful site for publishing content on the wider web and have decided that I will use the site more in upcoming weeks, months and years. I love the embedding capability provided by Scribd. It is a very presentable method of posting things like Bible Studies, books, etc.
2. I mention at the portal that I’m now on Skype. I tried to join Skype some years ago but for some reason I couldn’t get it to work on the computer I then had. It works brilliantly on the new computer, so I now have that up and running.
3. There are some changes coming to my kevinswilderness.com site, which is listed in the directory at my portal. It is moving to http://kevinswilderness.wordpress.com/, though this is not yet mentioned on the portal itself. I’ll have this up today sometime. The reason for this has been explained in posts at the new site. The move will take some time to complete as it is a large site.
4. Pip.io Chat Room: I have now added a link to a Pip.io chat room on the portal. Feel free to pop over and have a look. I believe you need to request admittance to the chat room before you are able to do so. Please make mention of the reason why you would like to enter the room, as I do want to protect it from abuse and spammers. http://pip.io/#room/kevchat/
I have been doing a little bit more work on ‘Kevin’s Portal’ and now feel quite satisfied with it for the time being. As I mentioned yesterday, this page is simply a portal to the sites that I have spread over the World Wide Web and includes Blogs, social networking sites, websites, etc. I think I have just about all the sites with a public profile now represented – with perhaps the exception of one or two that I may have missed. I’m sure more will be added along the way.
