How many times have I heard users say, I WANT DIFFERENT HOME PAGE FOR LOGGED USERS, to many to count.
Over a week ago, using the fully hosted version of the popular open-source WordPress content management system, Dean Jones introduced a blog portal that focuses specifically on religion to help people share their faith online.Jones, a 36-year-old ex-lecturer from London argues that Godinterest Sites gives occasion to a whole new set of conversations about religion in public life and represents the possibility of a common conversation among a diverse set of voices. ” There is no doubt that WordPress is one of the most popular blogging platforms so when asked what’s special and about Godinterest Sites, Jones stated the following points: ” – Only for Religion- Godinterest Sites is targeted at those in Religion rather than general blogging. We envision blogs being used to facilitate discussion, replace paper newsletters, encourage students to blog, post videos podcasts and presentation and create class publications. – Accounts – Godinterest Sites offers a range of accounts not limited to an individual. The basic version is a free account which gives you basic features comparable to WordPress but without some of the themes and Adverts (a nice incentive to an educator) after that there are pro accounts which opens up more options like embedding html videos and the ability to set up, and monitor, blogs for students. Other features include custom domains and visitor stats. Godinterest Sites also offers free upgrades for students when attached to a Pro blog. – Wikis – can be a great features for project work and collaboration. However, they can also be a useful way to provide resources for students to access in their own time and at their leisure to continue their learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Although you can set this up on a self-hosted blog it requires more skill than some people have. – Privacy – students might be more conscious about their work than your average blogger. The built in privacy features (including password protection) are a great way to help students to build up their confidence. Modules – We also plan to implement modules in Scripture, Worship (including Sacraments), Church History and Beliefs on Theology Challenges and provide a variety of resources to help teachers and students explore many aspects of religious knowledge. ” The future of education is with online technology and there are fewer and better things to be innovating on than just that right now, Godinterest Sites offers that opportunity for any religious educator or faith blogger with specific themes and features that will make learning even more effective. About us Godinterest Sites is a blog-publishing service built with WordPress for religion that lets you share your faith online For a limited time Godinterest Sitesis offering free Pro upgrades for religious educational institutions worldwide.

LONDON, Jan. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Imagine for a moment a parallel universe where everyone respects freedom of speech and religion. Well, now you can visit such a world any time you want: Godinterest (https://godinterest.com), a faith-based community on a mission to tip the scale and shed more light in dark places.
Originally launched to great success in 2014 as a dedicated Christian social network for an increasingly neglected faith-based community, Godinterest now refers itself as “the Internet’s faithful social network” and is the brain-child of project manager, designer, blogger and grateful dad, Dean Jones.
Dean Jones grew up in London and attended St Martins College from 1996. He worked as a Design Lecturer from 2001 and then became a Project Manager and led on the setup and delivery of a major change programme on behalf of the House of Commons and House of Lords, (UK Parliament) in 2017-18.
Jones said, “Social networking websites are one aspect of the Web that continues to enjoy explosive growth, at least in part because users love to share information. While major social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram tend to define social media, there is a growing niche market including one for the religious demographic.”
Godinterest.com, coined as ‘Pinterest’s evangelical cousin’ in 2014 is clearly not Christianity’s answer to the Pinterest or merely a clearinghouse for photos, but seeks to be an online destination to engage in the global dialogue about religion and spirituality which includes social networking features, groups and even blogs to build its online community.
Jones said, “Godinterest Blogs connect to mainstream news sites, other non-faith blogs, and online collaborative knowledge networks such as Wikipedia and can be anything from personal diaries to daily screeds about current events. Some are highly opinionated and include funny personal stories.” “But their content is also unique as many spiritual blogs are written by people seriously engaging with their faith. Some bloggers write specifically about sacred texts. Others are more culturally oriented, covering the ways faith intersects with the arts and politics. By chronicling how they experience faith in their everyday lives, Godinterest bloggers are not only connecting with the wider public, but also to themselves and are gradually carving out their own section of the religious blogosphere.”
The Core Principles of Godinterest are-
We firmly believe that all bloggers have the right to political speech.
We firmly believe in protecting and promoting freedom of religion or belief.
We further believe that bloggers have the right to maintain their privacy, along with the option to remain anonymous if they so choose.
Jones said “In an overwhelmingly liberal dominated media mainstream with increasingly ‘progressive’ agendas, many of the largest internet platforms are being held hostage by an aggressively thuggish PC culture, which is now openly suppressing articles and shadow banning in defense of conservative values. Godinterest recognizes this blatant bias against even the most moderate conservative thought and is, therefore, seeking to expand its network with multiple faith networks to explore and experience the world’s beliefs.”
