I have been working on a few updates – nothing too major as far as site content goes. I have however purchased another multifunction printer which will assist greatly in getting more content on site as soon as possible. This has been a major speed hump in getting more content online for some time now.
The current updates are as follows:
1. Several link updates on the home page.
2. The particularbaptist.com Polling Place has been updated by making use of the flisti polling resource.
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/
This Blog is not yet connected to the particularbaptist.com site, but will soon be linked to it on the home page via a link in the site directory and by a RSS feed on the home page. The home page on our site is being redesigned and this Blog will feature on it as the means for visitors to follow what is happening on our site in both the redesign/upgrade and for the future. It will be our interaction point so to speak.
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.
