This BLOG & others

November 11, 2008

Please read for a better understanding of what a Blog actually is & more importantly what this FM Blog is about & who its for..

The number of blogs on the internet is doubling every five months, according to blog-tracking site Technorati. The total is now around 20 million, with around 1.3 million posts made each day. Most are no more interesting than overhearing another person’s telephone call, but there are exceptions that can have a remarkable impact. But, lets define the term first; “A blog (a contraction of the term “Web log“) is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog” (from wikepedia).
So, a Blog by Faith Mission Bookshops? Why? The initial idea to have a place that site visitors would land on while we prepare the web-site was part of the plan but also the blog will continue once we launch. “Christian Blogs” are everywhere on the internet and i feel strongly that we have an advantage in our favour. Faith Mission sells Christian books, music, card & Gift product, in other words we cater for the “Church” with our product. Now, thats a lot of people! In light of this having a wide range of “Christian” topics on our blog is part of what it takes to build it into something. Providing links to other “Christian” blogs, where appropriate is also a huge part of creating an online community of readers. We need your help & feedback to do all of this though. We will highlight books & music, we will mention “Christian” events/concerts and we will blog about “Church life.” In a nutshell if its “Christian” we might just blog about it.
Got any ideas for us? Thoughts on blogging, or questions? Leave a comment! We know that we are getting traffic regularly on the blog & some of you are actually staying long enough to suggest that you are reading it! So, do say hello & stick around, we would love to “meet” you
