What do you want to know?

We want your input on this.We are trying to fill out the website. We want it to be full of resources that serve our community, and so we are asking that community for help in the planning of the near future of the site.

We have plans to create several sections with different foci, such as the two above; one for people seeking to learn about Unitarian Universalism and one for people wishing to share their UU faith with others.What other things should we include in those sections? What links do we need to add?

We also have a section for information about the I Am UU project. Websites generally put a FAQ section in a place like that, but so far, the only question frequently asked is “Who are you,” or possibly “Who do you think you are?” What else would you all like to know about our projects? Facebook? Cafe Press? That mysterious YouTube project?

Finally, we are going to be using the blog section to post some links and news, as well as encouragement and commentary about Unitarian Universalist outreach and people living out our UU Principles (even if some of them don’t call themselves UU). How often would you come by the page and read our “News & Links” section? Would you be willing to go to Tumblr or Twitter to see short, informal, daily news round-ups?

Please leave us some comments about how to help you share your UU faith, and how we can support you in actively promoting our Principles in your community.

    Currently under consideration:
    – UU Observances; Water communion, Chalica, Evolution Sunday…
    – “How Do UU?”; working title… Ask a question and have several UUs send short replies. Ex: How do UU pray?
    – Links to resources on UU History and congregational life.

    I think it might be helpful to point out that UUs are people who don’t have all the answers. We are people who can live with ambiguity. That’s why we don’t adhere to a certain religious text as our standard.

      We do have statements similar to that on the “ABCs of UU” page. That is currently the only page we have that is written for non-UUs. Where else do you think we should add it?

    “How often would you come by the page and read our “News & Links” section? Would you be willing to go to Tumblr or Twitter to see short, informal, daily news round-ups?”

    I am more likely to want to subscribe to a site’s updates (email, RSS feed, FB/Twitter) than to remember to come by on my own. However, if you organize your update schedule so people can expect to see certain things on certain days, they might be more likely to remember to come on their own. For example, I remember to check out the Vlogbrothers because they always post on Tuesdays and Fridays. Maybe the “How Do UU?” topic appears on Thursdays, new promotional images come out on others days, highlight news/resources on other days.

    I like the “How Do UU?” idea.

    There are one or two websites with short biographies of famous UUs. Maybe link to those for further reading when they are mentioned in posts here?

    I’ll think on this some more.

      The “News and Links” section can be subscribed to, as it is built on the WordPress blog platform. Other pages will not get automatic updates, but we will likely announce the pages we are most proud of on Fb and Twitter.

      It is good to know that the “How Do UU?” idea has a fan. I have to hope that we can find people to help write it.

    Aimee I would also love to read a How do UU? section in the style of the Further Questions posts on the Hiring Librarians blog. I can even imagine myself sharing them via Facebook to others.
