Hi there folks,
I just wanted to share with you a few things that have been going on here at the Supernatural Truth in Christ website, and would also like to introduce some ideas I have concerning fellowship here at STIC.. Since the last update (which was quite awhile ago,) I’ve added things, moved things around, brought in some bells and whistles, and even organized a little. While you’re here, there are a couple of questions that I’d like to ask you at the end of this post, of which your feedback will be crucial concerning the direction this site will take.
One of the items that was re-organized to make more sense, was creating a 2 Corinthians section, under the Bible Study Tab. Speaking of the Bible Study section, I’ve also placed a good amount of posts in there. It’s actually become the heart of the site in many ways. As time progresses, and when the day comes that the 2 Corinthians section is complete, I’ll jump to the next book in the Bible that the Father places on my heart to cover.
After many people inquiring as to why I haven’t made subscriptions available, and hearing about the desire of receiving notifications of new posts and pages, I’ve set up the S.T.I.C. site to shoot out e-mails whenever there’s something new here on the site. So if you haven’t already, and you’ve already clicked past the pop-up inviting you to subscribe, there’s always that bar up top with an invite to subscribe as well if you choose to get your heads up about fresh content here on the site.
Social Media Buttons
I’ve made it possible to share just about every aspect of this site.There are the share buttons to the left of the page, one waiting for you at the bottom as well.
I’ve enabled pics on each page to become shareable individually. When you hover over a pic, you’ll see the options to share either on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Since I installed this feature, I’ve been using it all the time as I try to spread the content around.
The Site News posts such as this, I don’t spend any time on pics. This is more of a newspaper about the goings on here. However, for the typical posts you’ll find here, I’ve always tried to include a handful of pics on every post. But because of this feature (which was installed a couple of posts ago,) I’ve been making an effort to include pics that would stand alone if shared. That way, they’d still convey a message to your peers whether or not they visit this site.
This is one of those features that would go unnoticed without someone saying something, or discovered by accident. Recently, I included an app, that allows anyone to highlight text on any page, and share it on either Twitter or Facebook. Give it a shot! Just highlight a sentence and you’ll see a box pop up. It’s actually pretty neat I think.
I’d like a few more options mixed in with this one, and if the creators of the app decide to include others like G+ or LinkedIn, I’ll make sure to update the app.
Ideas for Fellowship and Service
I’ve got some ideas cooking to make this site much more interactive with all of you Brothers and Sisters in the Lord.
A Chat Section
I could add a chat section here on the site, but there’s one thing stopping me from doing so. Lack of people chatting. Ever go to a website and there’s a chat section with 3 comments in it from 2005? Yeah, that’s what I’d rather not have happen, which is a major reason I’ve not put one up.
BUT A QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU IS….
Actually a two fold question concerning the inclusion of a chat section…
- Do you think it would be a good addition to the site?
- Would you utilize it and fellowship with others through it?
Please answer in the comments section below, especially if you’ve got any ideas concerning this.
Prayer Warrior Notifications
I know that there are a ton of you that come to read this site are real life, down and dirty, prayer warriors! As of right now, I’ve got over 20,000 subs on Twitter, about 500 combined on G+, and others from other social outlets, and there is never a shortage of prayer requests.
My thought here is the following… Placing an option that would be similar to the Subscribe option, but different in a sense that it would be designed for the sole purpose of signing people up to be Prayer Warriors. What that means is, when a prayer request comes in, I can have it sent to those who have signed up to help out with this.
MY QUESTIONS TO YOU ARE…
- Does it sound like a good idea to you?
- Would this be something that you’d be interested in taking part in?
Again, please leave your answers down below in the comment section.
What’s on my heart
What the Lord has been placing on my heart, is that there is a missing element here on the site. And that missing element is a means by which to use the webpage, not just to read whatever he places on my heart to share, or what he’s placed on the hearts of others to share via the different sections like the “Preach It,” “Testimonies,” or “Supernatural,” sections.
Not only to use this resource as an outlet for those things, but as a place of fellowship and a means by which we can lift each other up however possible. That’s the kind of thing that’s been placed on my heart to mull over with everyone.
Please comment and let me know your opinions about the Chat and Prayer Warrior Possibilities. What are your thoughts?
Have a great weekend (or week, pending on when you’re reading this) and may the Lord bless each of you abundantly in Jesus name!
