What Is Up?
I've not really worked on the site much since I sent out a site updatelast time. been doing a few small things here and there. created a Termsof Service (TOS) Page with help from Webs.com and their apps. uh, can'treally think of anything else. I actually really am satisfied with howthe site looks right now. Webs recently came out with a new featurewhere you can "Tab" your site links and I tried to do that but then forsome reason the links weren't showing up on my screen when I went to thesite, so I dunno if it is/was something on my computer or on Webs, or asetting I needed to toggle on the site editor, so to be safe I justwent back to the old way.
I've been busy living life, working a lot of hours at my offline job, working on getting a Drivers License (Lol) and contemplating on going back to college or not to better my future and to try to get a better paying job with better benefits. I know most of you probably don't want to hear about my personal life, and it's not real professional for a Newsletter, but I'm just trying to let you guys know Iv'e not been around as much , I've logged in a few times and have seen there's not been much activity change, and it makes me sad. I really want this site to be successful but I don't know what else I can do to get the word out.
We have "fan" pages/groups on a few of the most popular social networking sites, Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter. you can find links to them on our site under the "About this Site/Contact" link. and also, towards the bottom of the main home page the links are provided there as well.
and I did some quick math involving them today and I came to the conclusion that we have about 67+ people who are either a fan of FB "Fan page", member of the sister group on FB, member of the myspace group...or following us on Twitter. Now, I'm sure there is probably some overlap there, not sure how many...but still that leaves about 40+ unique ppl who are fans of the Pagan Heretic in one social networking site or another.
Yet, we only have 14 members on the main site. What's up with that?
The Pagan Heretic is a great resource yet it's not being put to use. the forum sets idle. and I've tried to do as much promotion as I can that does not involve shelling out ...cash out of my pocket. ive tried FB, Myspace, Twitter, Youtube, submitting the site URL to sites such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing, to boost site traffic and returns in those search Engines Search Results, I have the link posted on my personal Myspace Page, and FB Page, and posted onto my Witchvox (The Witches Voice) Account, and have tried to get the word out through general word of mouth. now its up to you guys. if you haven't signed up. please do so. send an invite to your friends etc. and lets make this a successful online resource community for Paganism and religion and Philosophy in general! How about it?
If you really like the idea of a online resource page dedicated to providing resource information, and networking, in a manner that is open and tolerant of everyone regardless of their religious beliefs or faith just as long as those people share that same respect back with us. If you like the idea of having a discussion forum to post on, where you will be free from harassment for what you believe, and you want to make a difference in our community where you can help show newcomers tn the o Neo-Paganism the ropes and help to point them in the right direction and to help mentor them....then get involved in "The Pagan Heretic" Website, and Participate. the more you participate the more site traffic we can possibly drum up. and let all your friends both online and offline know about this site so that they can check it out as well.
I really don't know what else to say other then I want this site to become a successful one. and the only way it can become that way is if we have participation from the rank and file members just like you.
I think I have a pretty template, with informational links and resources, a prayer request form, a blog, and a Discussion forum.. and more.set up for your use, to help get us started down the path to success, and to help us teach others and to help bust the myths, rumors, and sterotypes surrounding our beautiful collective religions.
As Always, If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve the site, or on how to recruit members and participation, don't hesitate to let me know. I want this site to grow and flourish and the only way I can do that is with your help. and if you think you can help make this site better and want to commit to that, then contact me about considering becoming a Moderator for the site and forum.
So, go checkout the Website, become a "fan" of us on FACEBOOK, join up for the groups on both FACEBOOK and MYSPACE, friend us, and follow our Tweets on Twitter. And help us social network and get the word out.
and most of all......
Thank You very much from the bottom of my heart for your continued interest in "The Pagan Heretic" Neo-Pagan Resouce Page and Online Networking Community and Discussion Forum.
