Perhaps you have a piece or two that you think would be useful to other UUs but you really don't want to start your own blog. Naked SAMADHI is here to help!
If have some material you think is appropriate, please feel free to send it along to me (with copyright notice on the bottom – see mine for a sample form). Submissions can range from book and movie reviews, to rants and raves, to a perspective on spiritual practice, to perspectives on lay ministry.
I take a look at your work and perhaps post it (no promises). If I do post it, you will get a byline. If necessary, I will to some simple for mating. Any images you use should be forwarded as separate attachments as well as embedded in the text. If you submit three or four thoughtful pieces, and are so inclined, I will be happy to invite you to be a guest blogger which will allow you to post whenever the fancy strikes. Just to keep up appearances, and because a guy has to have some standards, please take a look at the following before submitting:
- Content: We expect our posts to be thoughtful and promote a focus on spirituality, healthy church dynamics, church history, and so on. The only things that are off limits are political discussions and general UU material that can be found elsewhere (though I am happy to consider adding links to such sites on your recommendation). This does not mean that you can't be funny, clever or irreverent - just be brilliant. If you have questions about what type of material is acceptable, poke around and it should be fairly obvious.
- Look and feel. It is important that the visuals of the site be maintained and so if you can find your own visuals, so much the better. If not forward the piece to me and I will scout around. Photos should be interesting and colorful and have a professional appearance.
Other than that, let's have fun and work to the change the world one post at a time!
Thank your for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you.
