Links


I thought it might be a good idea to offer a few tips to our readers. I know several of you get the blog via email on the day after we post it. And some of you go to the CommunityofChrist.ca website and read there. A few of you are “followers” and somehow have figured out how to get notice of new postings every day, or of comments as they appear.

One thing both Carman and I have been doing more of lately is linking to other articles or friendly blogs we think you might enjoy. Sometimes it’s a link back to an old post that has some relevance or that we’d like to remind you about.

I hope that most of you know that if you find a word or phrase or bit of instruction like “Click here” that’s underlined or shows up in a different colour (usually blue) in the text of your message, that you should click on that word and be magically transported to another site where you’ll find a treasure we want you to have.

These can be a bit tricky for us to insert, and we try to check them all to ensure the links aren’t broken. But occasionally you’ll get a message, something like “Page Not Found” in big bold letters. If that should happen, just send me an email and I’ll try to get it repaired, or I’ll send you the link. [Note: thanks Steve!]

If you read our whole post without ever visiting any of those outside links, you’ll still have the whole message we intended for you. So if you are a novice Blog-reader and haven’t known about these clues, don’t worry that you’ve missed the essential lesson or news-bit we meant for you to read. But if you connect to the links you’ll be a little bit richer, a bit better informed and you’ll find some other writers or excellent resources you might want to read or use in future.

For those who receive What’s the Good Word? by email, let me encourage you to occasionally bring up the main site. Check the sidebars for a few of our most favourite bloggers. And don’t forget the Comments. Every day there are folks who respond or ask questions or add a little bit to what we’ve written in the main post. We enjoy and value this feedback so very much. If you track these bonus conversations you become part of a little “community” in conversation about the many good things happening in our larger Canada East community and beyond.

I hope this is helpful. If there is more to say on the topic I trust that one of our faithful followers will add his or her comment to the message. Thanks for following us and for participating.
