First and foremost, is intentionally a .NET. We strive to provide a place of Christian fellowship and community (a network) where people can express themselves in three ways:

(1) To be REAL. Our interactions and discussions aim to be honest and authentic in nature. This is a place where people can express what they really feel about living out their faith.

(2) To be RELEVANT. What we do should be focused on real-life application of the Word of God to our families, job, ministries, or any other aspect of our lives.

(3) To be FAITH-centered. God is at the center of everything that we do and discuss. Without Him, what we do would be meaningless.

What do you think? Is this something that you would want to be a part of? Does it sum up your experience with Is there anything that I should change about this statement?

As the Social Media Editor for, I’m taking the lead in a partnership with Christian Web Trends at in a project called ’31 Days to Build a Better Blog’. I’m pretty excited about this project, because I think that it’ll give me the opportunity to take to the next level.

I’m also hoping that we’ll be able to apply some of what we learn to the site, and I think that many of our member bloggers will benefit a great deal from the discussions.

Day 1 of the project focuses on ‘The Elevator Pitch‘. Wikipedia defines the elevator pitch this way…

An elevator pitch is an overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The name reflects the fact that an elevator pitch can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (for example, thirty seconds or 100–150 words).

For quite some time now I’ve used the tagline of ‘real. relevant. faith.’ for this site. I use it because I believe that it sums up what the site is all about. The 116-word elevator pitch that I started this post with provides the deeper definition of what that three-word tagline means to me.

I’d love to hear what you think about my elevator pitch. If you’ve been visiting here for a while, does this fit your experience? If not, then what is missing?

If you’re new here, does this sound like something that you’d want to be a part of? Why or why not?

Please feel free to be honest, and not worry about hurting my feelings. I’m really trying to grow through this process, and want to know what you really think (that’s the REAL part of my elevator pitch).

So let me have it! Ready, set, go…
