With various hardware upgrades over the last few months (due to ‘dying’ hardware) I am now able to get back to work on updating, maintaining and growing the website. I am very thankful for being able to do so once again. There should be regular work on the site now – Lord willing.
Tonight I have been able to add some further updates to the Thomas Crosby book on the English Baptists. This includes adding a further 6 pages to the text now available online 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/
Particularbaptist.com is pleased to launch its newest Blog, ‘The particularbaptist.com Blog.’ The purpose of this new Blog is to consolidate several of our Blogs and information/notification services, thereby providing a central location for particularbaptist.com news, updates, book reviews, uploading of new Bible studies, online books, etc. This will provide our site visitors with the opportunity of keeping up to date with what is going on at particularbaptist.com via the Blog, email subscriptions, etc.
Visitors to our site will also be able to interact far more easily with the site owner and with other visitors via the comments facility provided in the Blog. Given the possibilities of the Blog for increasing visitor interaction with the particularbaptist.com site, I will also be removing the Guestbook on our site and placing one (of sorts) in the Blog. You will find a link to it on the Blog.
I hope this Blog proves useful to our site visitors and improves the service that particularbaptist.com provides. It will be of great service as a means of notification to our regular visitors to changes to our site (it is about to be redesigned and upgraded), of new content that is added, etc.
