#PitMad On WordPress

On Twitter yesterday, writers posted book pitches along with the hashtag #pitmad. The idea was to promote their work and garner support amongst the writing community. If you liked the pitch you hit the retweet button. I’m fairly new to Twitter, but decided to give it a rattle anyway. I got 4 retweets! Well, two if you don’t count Fionnuala and Hannah. It’s a start, I guess.

I’m not sure if there’s a similar phenomenon on WordPress, but I do know that there’s no more supportive social media platform. So, why don’t we try it? If you would like to promote your blog, book, poem, short story etc then simply do so in a short post, then share the link with me. I’m not sure what sort of a response I’ll get, but I will then reblog a percentage of them.

Please don’t be offended if I don’t reblog your post. It’s only a bit of fun, after all. Alternatively if you like the idea, but perhaps don’t want to participate, then reblog this post and share the love with your blogging community. I look forward to to being inundated with your offerings. What better way to start a dark and chilly morning here in the frozen wastes of Northern Ireland.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

      1. Thank you very much for the re-blog! I left a comment explaining the Kindle version is not free, since that was an old promo. However, Kindle Unlimited users can read it for free. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to look at my book. I am truly grateful. Thank you again Stephen and Fionnuala! God bless!


  2. I am new to Twitter so not sure how this works. I created a tweet on my twitter account:
    Thanks for doing this. Its a crazy new world of publishing these days….we need to join together to help one another muddle through. Blessings. My book is Surviving Medical Mayhem, Laughing When It Hurts and is a collection of short stories which empowers and inspires the reader with how to navigate the medical arena using education, faith, and lots and lots of humor…

  3. Words To Live By is a blog that lives at the intersection of the Bible and character. While the Bible is by far the best selling book in all of history, it is not well understood. In fact it has been so mis-understood that it has been deemed irrelevant by many. The problem is, reading the Bible is a cross-cultural experience. And “The Bible” does not have a unified voice. It has the majority opinion and the minority opinion next to each other. I like to say the Bible is a conversation. Different viewpoints are represented and it is up to the reader to decide which applies the best to our current circumstances.

    I mostly use the passages that are on the Revised Common Lectionary reading schedule because that forces a discipline of wrestling with hard and unfamiliar texts which I might not choose otherwise. That is a discipline that pays off in terms of increasing my readers’ biblical literacy. Put in other words, my hope is that my readers will have a wider, warmer view of the scriptures after they read my daily posts. In addition to biblical literacy, I value and intentionally promote strength of character in my blog posts. The traits of a strong character, first of all, include a person who has clear values and standards for living and actually lives by them. Too many say they value this or that trait or practice but their lives don’t reflect that value. I say, if it isn’t portrayed in your life, it doesn’t actually exist.

    I am a pastor and a retired Navy Chaplain who believes following Jesus in compassion, service and gratitude is the very best kind of doctrine. God is present in the world in the Spirit and in the church as the body of Christ. I am a One on the enneagram who lives to find the balance between having my ‘to do list’ all crossed off at the end of the day and being spontaneous in the moment. Biblical literacy is important to me, and I want to make the meaning of the Bible and its stories less of a mystery to the average person so the love of God comes through to them clearly.

These disorders are a result of severe and prolonged child abuse. I am also blind. I am also in weekly psychotherapy which I also blog about. The blog is about my life, and all that I get up to each day.
