Posted in Church Resources by Mike

So I’ve added quite a few new church websites to my portfolio lately and I’m pretty happy with how they all came out. I’m just about burned out creatively though so I will probably take a few new clients this month and then not take any more for the rest of the year. I wanted to post some random musings though:

1. I’ve just discovered FLICKR and I love it (yes I’m about 10 years behind)! Here are some great christian designs Ive found http://www.flickr.com/photos/51204974@N00/favorites/

2. Sites everywhere are stealing my content AND graphics from mychurchwebsite.com! Grrrrr. PLEASE don’t steal my content. I wrote and designed it all myself and even though its not THAT great, its still my own :-) I find it hilarious when they take personal content I wrote that only applies to ME and post it on their site.

3. Gospel Software contacted me and asked me to be an affiliate. I just might do so… but if anyone wants to check them out, they are at http://www.gospelsoftware.com. Let me know if you have a good experience with them. The people behind it are real great guys, that I know. They offer:

  • Directory › An online photo directory & member database for your church.
  • GuestView › A complete guest management solution for your church.
  • SongBook › Manage your church’s worship songs and set lists.

4. I made this book thing a while ago and never finished it http://www.noperfectpeople.com/book/. It was supposed to be a way to reach people with the gospel in a creative way but I never got inspired enough to continue work on it. If anyone has any ideas or wants to try their hand at it, let me know. We really need creative way to do so online. There isnt much out there that I’ve seen that’s any good.

5. I always get asked if I can recommend anyone good to design a church site when I am not taking clients. Although I can’t recommend anyone you do get what you pay for, so be careful. I would stay away from anyone offering full flash sites. I would stay away from anyone that doesn’t have a portfolio readily available to view. I would stay away from anyone that is offering the world to you because no one is the best at EVERYTHING.
6.  I can’t believe I’m still number 1 in google and yahoo for church website design! Its been like 3 years since I got up there! It is truly a blessing :-)
7. My IPHONE is my best friend, is that so wrong? :-p My favorite games right now on it are: Peggle, Bobby Carrot 2, Flight Control, and DoodleJump.
