How This Site Works
“This is the 5th web page for which I have responsibility, so there aren’t going to be a lot of posts to this blog.”
I can’t believe I wrote that when I started this, but it actually grew to be bigger than I ever imagined — certainly bigger than my personal blog was at the time — but now that’s grown, too and sadly, this one still remains my ‘side project.’
Here in Canada, changes to our industry are coming fast and furious and it’s really hard to keep up. Some days it’s hard to find someone to talk to who really knows and really understands the unique features of our commercial ministries.
So by putting this blog up, and leaving the comments section open, I’m hoping that those who want to talk can talk, and those who want to rant can rant, and those who have questions can ask them.
This was originally intended as a forum for CANADIAN Christian Bookstore OWNERS and STAFF, but if you’re reading this from the USA or the UK, or you’re just a big huge FAN of Christian books; feel free to chime in, but identify yourself as such. Stores which want to can SIGN their comments, or you can just use a username, or you can create something anonymous if it’s a really contentious topic. Feel free to come back to the discussion often; and feel free to post comments to various discussions at the same time.
Where it asks for your URL, if you’re not a blogger, you can use your store website instead; just use it in the form beginning http://
There’s also a product search page (not being used much right now) and a guest book where you can say “hi” outside the chronology of individual blog posts. There’s also an open discussion page if you want to get our attention about something and don’t know where else to start typing.
BTW, readers here include some fairly significant industry people, so you’re in good company; but if you decide to trash someone’s sacred cow, at least be polite about it. That cow may be somebody’s pet.
