More Blogging

I stumbled across this YouTube video where Seth Godin talks about why blogging is valuable.

He basically says, that for most people it's not the value of the content they generate but the value the writer receives from the process of generating that content.  I couldn't agree more.  So with that in mind I'm going to be blogging more, but worrying less about whether it is of interest to other people.  Instead I'll be blogging about things that interest me (and possibly only me!).

Churchbox.org – Sharing Church Resources

For a long time I've wanted to create a website where church folk could upload resources to be shared with other church folk.  If you have a good children's sermon, youth lesson, prayer of confession, personnel manual, bible study, or bulletin cover then you could upload it to this imaginary website, tag or categorize it appropriately and it would be there for the masses so we don't have to reinvent the wheel. 

Using Posterous as my platform I've set up Church Box at www.churchbox.org. Consider this site in open beta for the time being.  This means that it basically works, but that it could be improved (probably greatly).

Give it a try and let me know what you think.  Or just browse the few resources that form my ministry that I have shared.

Cataclysm Release Date

UPDATE:

Ok, I was off by a month.  In my defense, I had initially predicted fourth quarter 2010 on The previous night’s Instance Blizzcon episode. 🙂

 

 

Since being overly-humble is not one of my faults I just wanted to point out that a year ago at Blizzcon I predicted a possible 2011 release date for Cataclysm and we are getting pretty close to the end of the year with no release date announced. Listen below to my prediction on the Instance and the ridicule I endured from Scott, Patrick, Turpster, Mark and Nicole for my far-fetched estimate.

“I wouldn’t be surpised to see this game in 2011….it could be January 2011, but…”

Help my Bad Graphic Design Skills

Ggg

I’m trying to put together a graphic for an upcoming sermon series, but I have zero skills or training in graphic design.  Here is what I put together so far using GIMP.  Other than the stupidly obvious, like buying the iStockphoto images, do you have any design tips or specific instructions?  Be nice. 🙂

UPDATE:

This was my final design.  Everyone pretty much agreed that the first draft was too busy and confusing.  The final design doesn’t “pop” and isn’t really fancy, but it’s better than the first one, right? 🙂
