Much of this is general "rules" which is common use for authors. Peoples makes mistakes. Taking that to account, we will not judge anybody, but rather advice, so the errors become minimised. Please study articles on the subject, and start become an author with a standard.

Why write articles/ sermons

Written by

I am planing to bring you as our member, with your photo among the featured authors at our website. What you need to do to get there, is quite simple. Just write a few articles, like 4 - 5, and your photo will be there.

Why is that important?
people_on_the_move.jpg When your photo is among the featured authors, your ministry will be more noticed by more people. Consider this: You don`t need many persons that supports your vision, for it to be a reality. You may only need one person that believes in your vision, to finance it. The point is 1) Your ministry is noticed by this one person. 2) That person have the funds to support your vision.

How can I find this person?
The best known way for marketing through the Internet today, is by writing articles. I see that every day. Where do ex. Dr. John C. Maxwell or other known authors and preachers, get the huge audience from? By writing a lHot of articles and books. (e didn`t start with the books I suppose)

This is proven to be the best way to promote your Christian ministry through the Internet. You may use three to four hours to write a good article, but after you have done one article, many people will read it, for years to come.

The writing cloud - your idea bank

Written by

In my experiences in writing over the years, I found that making a bank of ideas is very useful. I simply don`t remember all the idea`s on articles I get during one day. Or I get many ideas during the research, and if I should not forget it I need to write it down.

Have you ever been walking somewhere, starting thinking at a specific subject like a Bible passage, a story you heard or something else. You are thinking that you need to remember this to the sermon on Sunday. But what happened so many times? When you get to the sermon preparation, you simply forget the key points in the idea, or you just forgot the whole idea/ thoughts.

What can you do, that actually will ..

..help you remember all your sermon/ teachings or idea`s, for the future writing and preaching?

Why you should write down your sermons or articles

Written by

The point of writing an article, is to get people read it. If you got an other reason, it is better using your time doing something else.

Reason one is this:

You have a message. You have some ideas. You have some thoughts.
You need to share it. You need the message to get to somebody else.

This is one of the reasons why you should write sermons and articles.

Reason two is this:

You need finances to the ministry!

Getting finances to the ministry is not easy. And it is not more easy through the Internet. You are going to do a lot of mistakes, before you earnestly can say you master it. It is like going to school again. If you don`t already master this subject, you need to learn it.
Please read on, and I am sure you will be the next author .....
