Wednesday Website Weviews Update

website review and critiqueWe’ve decided to pull the plug on the Wednesday Website Weviews.

Why?

It appears that you, the Christian Web Trends community, simply aren’t interested.

In January and February we did 7 reviews.  Those posts averaged 2.5 comments excluding my own.  Those posts also averaged just 1 retweet excluding my own.  Additionally, as time went on we’ve got fewer and fewer requests for reviews, and many of those who requested reviews did not comment on the blog which was one of the requirements.

Add to that the fact that the reviews are very time consuming, and it just didn’t make any sense to continue doing them.

The positive is that those organizations whose sites were reviewed for the most part found them to be very helpful.  In fact I just saw a comment from Justin at The Grove Church in Hattiesburg, MS (review) that he completely redesigned their site, making a lot of the recommended improvements.

  1. That's too bad. Being a newer site to Our Church.com, I was looking forward to the upcoming reviews to get ideas for my own site. Bummer!

  2. Sorry to hear about that, I did enjoy them and got some good ideas for my own site as well as the ministry site I just took over.

  3. Sorry to hear the news. I have been dealing with a computer crash and had intended to request a review after I got everything back up and running here and on the site. Good intentions never get anything done do they! Thank you for your great support and tutorials.
