Yesterday we shared our blogging habits in hopes to help churches and bloggers be a little more effective when writing articles. Today, we want to share some of the frustrations that you have, specifically what I hate about my blog. Note that some of these things are next to impossible to change as a one-man team and is not something that needs to be fixed every day, but should be addressed on a consistent basis.
Facebook is the social media network that everyone is on (regardless if they are fully active or using it for more than just Farmville). There is currently a hot button issue with parents on if Facebook users under 13 should be allowed on the network. The infographic below has some great insight into the discussion, including the responsibilities of parents and their seemingly double-mindedness.
Some different churches have asked what the best way to create great blogging habits, so I wanted to share our blogging habits here for those that are wanting to possible improve their own process of getting an article online or someone that is just getting into blogging and want a solid foundation.

Personally, I would love for us to understand that missions is not something that we do overseas, but the ability to bring the Gospel to a group of people that we simply do not understand yet. Unfortunately, American Christians probably can say that their own backyard is a missions field, because we have not been doing a good job of bringing the Gospel to our neighbors.
This series of What’s In Your Bag? has contributors opening up their own tech bags and sharing with the world actual devices that they regularly use within their own blogging and professional lives from various backgrounds all over the world. The hope is that we can give you guys some great insight into some useful tools that we already are using in the day to day.
Here is what is in my bag in the photo above from the top-left to the bottom-right:

For many years, Google has been developing many different ways to communicate with people, including Google Hangout,a competitor to GMail in Waves, Google Talk, and others. Since the inception and release of Google+, Google has pushed to unify many parts of its company or completely end them and the long overdue combining of all of Google’s messenger web apps. What was once considered a bit of a joke for a large company to not have a masterful messenger client is now the envy of many other companies. Here is our review of the iOS app.
