Behind the Scenes Project List
So, here are the major projects and ideas that we are currently working on behind the scenes at Priority. Some are almost complete; some are still in the brainstorming phase. But as you read through them, you will be able to see what we do all day and how you can pray for us!
So much has changed in cyber land since we first designed our current website in 2007! While we updated it and tweaked it quite a bit when we began the Glo Girl Blog in 2011, it’s time for a major overhaul! New graphics! New layouts! Easier navigation! And most importantly, more functionality that will make it easier for us to manage it on the backend. But honestly, this is the kind of stuff that makes our eyes cross! Thankfully, we have professionals to help, and we can’t wait to unveil the final product!
Conversion from Constant Contact to MailChimp
This probably means nothing for you, but it’s a booger of a project for us. Over 9,000 people subscribe to our electronic mailing list, and we’re transitioning to a different platform in order to manage those subscriptions more effectively. MailChimp will make it easier for us to customize our subscriptions according to what our readers and supporters want. We just have to learn how to use it first!
Redevelop/Rethink email newsletter
Remember our monthly eNewsletter, You Glo Girl? So do we! It is what we used before the blog as a regular way to encourage women through articles, Scripture Art and information. Now that we do most of our communication through the Glo Girl Blog, we’re reevaluating how best to share info and encouragement to all of our subscribers on a regular basis. We know not everyone wants to see us in their inboxes every day, so we’re working on a solution to keep you informed on a regular, but less frequent, basis.
For a long time, we’ve wanted to offer a free eBook on the Glo Girl Blog. So Emily is writing a full-fledged book inspired by Laurie’s Front Porch Friday video series, Quiet Time Myths. It will elaborate and expand on how to have a guilt-free quiet time and expose even more myths associated with having “perfect” quiet times. Everyone who subscribes to the Glo Girl Blog will be able to get this pdf book for free!
Back in the spring, Laurie video-taped a four-part series on spiritual warfare at Sagemont Church. We’re compiling those messages and creating supplemental material to make available in an easy and affordable format that Christian ministry leaders will be able to use in their churches and small groups. It’ll be kind of like a retreat-in-a-box, and we know you’ll love it!
So… Laurie and Emily want to write a devotional book. Yeah, that’s as far as this project has gotten so far, but we’re praying for divine intervention that will allow this to happen, and allow it to happen in time for Christmas, 2013. Yikes. That’s soon!
