This is one of those posts that can only happen on a site that is literally my name with a .com on the end. In other words, though I try to usually produce content that would help others, this one will only benefit someone else if they are interested in my plans and a bit of insight into why I plan to do these things. Mostly though, this post is for me. Additionally, I know it’s popular to write lengthy and elaborate …
Gotta love a good infographic, right? This one by Sharethrough, Inc is a few years old now, and yet I believe it does a good job not only conveying some significant data (which I bet has only become more significant since this study), but it also displays some important and helpful distinctions between the two types of advertising. I suspect I’ll be sharing this with people fairly often… There is a great deal of information presented in here that I’ve …
These are the first WordPress themes I’ve actually liked enough to gush about in years… well, maybe ever. So I wrote out a bit of a story on my pain and searching that will hopefully have you feeling why I’m loving these themes and have put them on multiple sites now.
Here is, once and for all, how to hide your Facebook friends lists from other friends and people. I have my thoughts on this, but still, this is how you do it because I’m asked about it so much I’d like to just sent a link to this as a reply instead of type it a hundred times…
Quick update: Though pretty awesome while it lasted, Vizify was acquired by Yahoo in 2014 and, near as I can tell, is no longer happening in any way. Nobody ever knows what Yahoo does with things they gobble up… It’s weird.
I discovered this new site a few months back and have been itching to share it with the world. I love passing on cool resources, and this one is easily one of the most visually pleasing ways to introduce yourself that I’ve ever seen. I’m pretty fascinated with it!
This currently stands as the longest post I’ve ever written. Hey, it’s not easy to do an overview of all these great options, and I wanted to provide this all in one stop. So feel free to scan for what you want to know and then ask for any specifics in the comments! I’d love to help you strategize and get going in a direction that suits your needs! Also… I’ll keep updating this post as needed.
I’m rather known for being a “blogging evangelist”. No, not the “I share my faith through my blog” kind of thing (though that’s kinda inevitable), but the “you should blog” kind. Yep, I try to convert people into bloggers!
I think anyone can benefit from blogging, and especially if you’re in ministry! Because I believe this so strongly, I’ll soon be posting some top benefits of blogging. In fact, I’ll be doing a whole series for beginner bloggers. However, I want to discuss something I’ve been asked many times already, “Which blogging service should I use?”
Recently, my lead pastor was telling the many campus pastors they should consider blogging even if only for an archive of their answers and counseling they have to give often. I thought, “he sounds like me now.” Then one asked, “Well which platform would you recommend?” and I realized it was time I finish this post.
With so many options out there (literally hundreds) it is hard to know which one is worth your time and fits your needs best. There’s no “front porch” for deciding which of these doors to enter. I’ve blogged for over a decade in one form or another, so with that experience, I can give an objective view on some major platforms as well as tell why you might choose one and not another. Let’s do this!
Are you tired of having 1000 “friends” but only seeing updates from the same 20 that you don’t even like? Tired of the political rants, the ridiculous pictures, the “guess what I did every ten seconds” people, the creepers, the… oh, you get it? Well then, this post is for you!!! No seriously, you have no idea how much you’re going to love this.
*Update: This has become my most trafficked post from Google search. However, I never wrote it to be a hit. In fact, I wrote it in about five minutes as an aside to my vlog post: “How To Use Facebook Friends Lists To Their Maximum Potential”. So while I’m glad you’re stopping by, you need to know that I was primarily writing for people and leaders in ministry of the Christian faith at the time. While I’ve pivoted much of my website purpose and content since then, I still believe what I said here and still use these lists to guard my heart and mind from unnecessary crap. So if you get snarky in the comments, I reserve the right to either delete it or use your silliness as an example for others to learn from. Your call. :)
So you’re wondering what the differences are in Restricted and Acquaintances lists? I was too once!
They both have the ability to group people and limit their exposure to your posts and vice versa, right? Well, that’s good, but then why two!? How do you know which list to put people in!? Does it matter?
I serve as the Director and Editor-In-Chief of The Majesty’s Men, a multi-faceted ministry and brand I founded in 2013 focused on facilitating friendship and mentoring between Christian. TMM is made up of an online community and blog, a network of exemplary men and their sites, a brand and shop, resources, and, most importantly, a growing network of localized face-to-face communities.
I build the site, manage our accounts and volunteers, lead the editing, and lead in strategy and marketing for TMM. It has been a wonderful and super challenging learning experience over the years and I have many more plans for the future!
The best way to get to know TMM is to hop over to the site and check it out.
I write and work in other locations around the internet. You can catch all my other articles on my Published Elsewhere page, but for my other sites and properties I run, you can just hit these images below to hop over to them in a new window:
A large community website and network I founded with numerous Godly men writing and producing content for the goal of encouraging and equipping one another to be the leaders God has called us to be as men of God.
