If you didn’t notice, we have a new design! We have been working on it for a few weeks now (Chris used to be a web developer). The design is crisp and fresh, and has some functionality that is quite helpful. Every year that goes by, we feel we become better and better at blogging. We’ve learned a lot over the years!
If you don’t blog, you may just be a reader. And that’s fine! There are more readers than writers in the world. But if you are a writer, you should get with the 21st century and start a blog. No more excuses! And we’re going to make it real easy on you to get into blogging. Read on to the end.
Before even starting a blog, you should really think about your unique selling proposition. You should ask yourself, “What do I love to talk about?” and then make that your mission.
For the most part, our blog content is pretty much the same in this redesign. We didn’t sift through any articles and change actual content. However, there was a repositioning of certain items, and that had everything to do with our thesis and USP.
- Our subtitle changed to “Family, Children, Love and Jesus.” This is what we love to talk about, and so this is our focus.
- We give front-and-center attention to our resources on the front page. This does two things. First, it makes us the revenue we need to keep this blog running. Second, our books dig deeper into the thesis of this blog, providing depth that a blog just isn’t able to do.
- We now have “categories,” the red-bar of topics that we group our theme in. We used to dump all we wrote into one “family life” category, but we now branch out into more specific categories like the ones above.
Ultimately, we are writing for an audience, and that audience is you. This redesign is meant to focus on you, and we do that by sharpening our thesis and making sure we stick with our USP.
Chances are good that you share in our thesis of Family, Children, Love and Jesus. This is where the drum rolls and we ask you the pointed question to close the sale:
Would you like to be a guest writer for JeubFamily.com?
We ask only two things of you. (1) You share in our thesis of Family, Children, Love and Jesus, and (2) you are a writer. We would love to include your thoughts on our blog for our readers. We have had some marvelous guests on this site in the last year, but I would like to see more. You and your ideas will most richly bless the visitors here.
Visit our Guest Writers Guidelines and inquire about the possibility. We’d love to have you join us in our little corner of the blogging revolution. We hope to hear from you soon!
