The Christmas Watch

Check out this blog I just started: The Christmas Watch. This is still my main blog, of course. I just want a convenient way for everyone to post news about Christmas. To see what I mean, go there and read the post. I want everyone to contribute, if they can. You can even become a team-member if you want to. It's not about origins or the virtue in Christians celebrating Christmas (or not). The battle over Christmas is just a small taste of a much bigger battle over Christ and people's souls, and this blog is about illustrating that battle through the venue of Christmas.

Oh, yeah, read my new post below, too, though.

I saw....very nice!
I think this will be an awesome blog.
Team Members, eh? Might I become one? I don't blame you if you say no, but I have some stuff written about Christmas and such...
Although, I might worn you, I'm not all for the holiday, but I try so very hard to be with Christ.

Let me know.

That would be interesting. Tell her yes!

Kingdom Advancer said...

Warn me? That's like warning me you occasionally scream after screaming. ;)

Actually, though, I'm going to try to keep it focused on simple news updates. I know you are a Christian--which is the primary qualification of being a teammember. Pro-Christmas would be the next qualification, but, I guess all the qualifications don't have to be met. If you listen to any radio, watch any tv, hear about any celebrities or politicians on tv, keep up with news online (or anywhere), go shopping (not necessarily FOR Christmas, but you'll be out in it anyway) at all, etc., and can post what you see and hear, then you can be a teammember.

Then, besides the main news-related stuff, I'll probably open the blog up to some Christmas cheer and pictures, etc. So I guess, in fairness, I should keep it open to other opinions, too.

So, yeah, you can be a teammember.

Austin, would you want to be a teammember?
I'm just thinking, this blog is going to need a lot of eyes and ears (not necessarily opinions, though, ;)).

Austin said...

What kind of information exactly would you need?

Kingdom Advancer said...

wIt's going to be pretty basic stuff. I mean, I'm not looking for any C.I.A., classified stuff. ;)

I'd want you--when you watch TV (and commercials, obviously), listen to the radio (and commercials), read magazines and newspapers (and their ads), go shopping, hear quotes from politicians and celebrities, watch and read the news, etc.--to make mental notes on what you see and hear, and then post about it. Who's willing to support Christmas--and more importantly, who's willing to support Christ's intrical part of Christmas? And, then, of course, who's not?

If you wanted to really be an investigating teammember, you could snoop around to see what groups like the ACLU are up to.

You wouldn't necessarily have to write long articles or write often (if I can get enough members on board). I just want this to be like a news blog with news "flashes" and plenty of contributors.

Austin said...

If you would like to make me a team member, I'll post info. every so often on what's going on with the commercial world this Christmas, and all that sort of thing.

My email is aww7342@yahoo.com

Austin said...

I'm not sure if you're aware, but comments on The Christmas Watch are now restricted to team members only. No one can comment unless they're a team member. Was that on purpose? If so, then nevermind. I just wasn't sure if you intended to not allow comments.

Kingdom Advancer said...

Okay, Austin, you're "invited" now.

I've been doing a lot of customizing, so I must have changed the comment settings by accident (it should be corrected by now). I want anybody to be able to comment, although if someone wants to post actual info--more than once, anyways--they might as well become a teammember so they can actually post posts.

Lanna, I'll need your e-mail address too if you want to become a teammember.

Austin said...

Yay, it worked, I'm in! I'll post as soon as I have something useful to say.

Lanna said...

I'm altitude_up@yahoo.com

Thank you very much you guys.

(I need team members on my new blog too, it's about christian musicians, us, and songs. If you want...)

Lanna:)

Austin said...

I'm a Christian musician.

Lanna said...

Does that mean you want to be a team member?????
huh? huh? huh?


please.


Lanna

Austin said...

I'll get back to you on your blog.

Kingdom Advancer said...

You should have the official invite now, too, Lanna. I'm sorry it took me a little while. This is my first time on the computer today.

I'm a Christian musician, as well. If you want me to become a teammember, though, I don't know how often I could post (I've already got two blogs going now. ;))

Lanna said...

I have to delete my wonderful blog!
I'm just to busy with heroic and drumstx that haven't any time for a third. Sorry guys!:(

Lanna

Kingdom Advancer said...

Wait, now I think I understand...you will be keeping Heroic. I think I just got myself confused on that one. ;)
