The last few days I have been working on blog stats and planning how both this blog and my "usual" blog outsideisbetter.net will run for the next year. It is always good to be constantly tweaking things.
I am moving towards version 2.0 ( I like to call it POMO2.0) on PostModernEschatology.com. My desire for this site has always been to resource and write for the average Christian, and putting the book of Revelation back into the hands of worshipping congregations. These slight changes in POMO2.0 are designed to help this site work better inside that mission. I just wanted to let you know of a few upcoming things.
1. Swag- I and a few others are producing some great little pieces of swag for the blog. I think that in the 21st century, Christian resourcing needs to take on the idea of the grassroots rock band instead of the huge publishing house. So why not have fun stuff?
2. Giveaways-I held a contest on twitter a few months back, and I send the winner a random package of Revelation related stuff that I had collected. I have a great reader pool that sends me all sorts of stuff, so I want to pass that along to you. Sometimes these giveaways can be serious and at other times they can be zany.
3. Videos- I am writing a producing a few short videos that are designed to be used as conversation starters for small groups and bible studies. These videos will be given away free on the internet, but I might package them together and sell them on disc CHEAP.
The main move will be taking content on the blog in a more focused direction towards resourcing. When I looked at the stats for my first few months I had a better reader spread. As the months went along I noticed a dip when my posts became more technical than they needed to be. This happened when I spent to much time in original languages and more complicated information. Since I study Revelation and Eschatology in the Academic Sector, I fall into this mode at times.
But that doesn't fit the original model and mission of the site. In the next week I will be rolling out a format where I spend several posts on a topic, and at the end of the series I will release a .pdf of more research oriented material for the folks that like that type of information. That way I can provide two levels of writing and information that YOU can use.
I wanted to share this so you can keep your eyes open in the future for POMO2.0. I am really excited and I hope you are as well. If you have any thoughts please feel free to share them in the comments.
Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall ever be, world without end.
