New Cool Tool- Enter The Tag Cloud!

Check out the new Cool Tool on the right sidebar. It is a tag cloud designed by Zoom Clouds. I saw one of these on a blog I read often and wondered what one would look like on our blog. The way they work is to figure out what words keep appearing on your blog and then create a tag that links you to the posts that use that term. It is going to take some time for it to “learn” which terms to use so it will probably look different next month than it does now.

It will keep changing based on which words it picks up so I am interested to see how that develops. I’m not so sure I’m going to keep it, but I’ll use it for a month or so and see what I think. Feel free to share your thoughts.

ClustrMaps Updates

Where’d my dots go? That was the question that came to mind when I logged onto my blog just now. You know that map on the right side bar that shows the geographical location of where people are who are viewing this blog? When you click on the map, it says there are 5,432 visitors, but only six dots on the map. I went to the ClustrMaps FAQ to find out what happened. Here is some of what they had to say.

Maps get archived at regular intervals (weekly, monthly, or yearly), as described in our explanatory timeline. The interval is specified by you on your Admin page see the ‘Admin‘ link at the top of any ClustrMaps page). By default, archives happens yearly, but are sometimes delayed until a suitable current update has occurred, which is probably what has just taken place in the case of your own maps.

Naturally, people always like to have ever-more-dots, but the regular archive is the only way we can avoid having the maps turn into a ‘giant red smear’, and continue delivering the scalable service that everyone has come to expect.

That explains it. Here is a thumbnail of last year’s map, 7/11/06 through 7/11/07.

Cool Tool for the Gospel

I recently came across a very cool tool to use in spreading the gospel. Look in our “Cool Tool” section on the right side bar and look for this.
Are you a good person?

I found one like it at on a forum and decided that I wanted to use it too. The graphic was created by Living Waters which is affiliated with Ray Comfort. If you click on this link, you will find all kinds of other cool tools to use in preaching the gospel. One of my favorites is the link at the bottom of the page which shows you how you can insert this graphic into a signature in your e-mail. I’ve included it into my ministry e-mail and encourage you to do the same as well. Right now my signature looks like this.
