How You Can Help the Ecclesia College Blogs Grow in Outreach

"Please help a small blog trying to grow up and become global."

We are enjoying a good start in blogging. These three blogs, linked together, have about 3,600 page-views, after five weeks. People from 11 countries are reading the posts. You can see them near the bottom of the page on the Feedjit map.

This is the main blog in this group - Ecclesia College in Springdale, Arkansas.

This blog is designed to emphasize the arts at Ecclesia College.

This blog emphasizes features about sports at Ecclesia College in Northwest Arkansas.

America is losing the concept of literacy,
when tutoring is spelled this way on a sign.
When you click on any particular blog post, you are helping to increase its visibility on the Internet.

Regular readers mean that the search engine results will be high for any given topic associated with Ecclesia College:

  • The Christian faith, 
  • The Scriptures
  • Location in Northwest Arkansas, 
  • Twila Paris, 
  • Dave Barton, 
  • Low graduation debt, 
  • Homeschooling, 
  • Scripture, and 
  • College sports.

If someone wants to attend college where people understand and support homeschooling, a search will lead to Ecclesia College.

President Oren Paris is quick to say, "Homeschooled students are among our best."

The blogs are designed to lead people to the Ecclesia College website.

Below each post is a row of buttons for sharing across the Internet. If you wish to use them, you can email the post, Facebook share it, Google Plus share it, Tweet it, and Blog This! it.

One example is below.

You can also copy the URL (link) to your Facebook page. We all have from 50 to 1500 friends on Facebook. Some of them overlap, but many do not. And they have friends, too. It does not take long for Facebook sharing to increase regular readership.

Computers are sometimes misunderstood.

If you have a blog or website, please consider linking the  Ecclesia College blogs on your site. Linking the Ecclesia College website also helps.

Broadcast is a term first used for sowing seed. We began using it for radio and TV, but now it is returning as a way to spread the Word of God across the world, following the Parable of the Sower and the Seed (Matthew 13 and Mark 4).

Isaiah 55 is clear. God's Word is never broadcast in vain. The Word always accomplishes His divine purpose. The Holy Spirit always accomplishes His purpose and always prospers His work through the Word.
