A Well Behaved Mormon Woman Is Getting Around...

I could not be more pleased... Just yesterday, I got word back from LDS and Mormon Blogs, that they had accepted my submission for this blog, A Well Behaved Mormon Woman - and have officially added Me to their Mormon writer's blog roll. Finally, I am part of the family!

You see, no one as yet will add LdsNana-AskMormon on Hubpages - because most of the blog rolls online do not consider how Hubpages is set-up - to be a typical "blog". So LdsNana-AskMormon has still not qualified to be added along side of, and with other Mormon bloggers, much to my disappointment.

Hey - I'm doing online missionary work too! lol

I enjoy writing as LdsNana-AskMormon. I feel as though it has been a tremendous way to expose many non-members of the Church to Mormonism. I am quite emphatic in letting my readers know, that I am not an official spokesperson for Mormonism, nor am I an apologist for the LDS Church. However, I do my best to make sure that those who do read my Hubs, understand that I am simply a lay member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and that I will write, in what I refer to as... lay-member style.

So, that's what I do on Hubpages. My main goal online, is to be a credible member voice - in talking about those things that are relevant about Mormons, Mormonism and the Church today.

Deciding a few months back, to start this blog about A Well Behaved Mormon Woman (that's me) came about because of some opposition that I initially had to contend with warmly by some on Hubpages, that apparently were "tired of hearing about God". I felt I needed to be able to write from my heart, and not in the magazine style and formality that Hubpages demands of my work.

Anyway... I like this blog about this Well Behaved Mormon Woman, who is now starting to get around a little bit more:-)

I want to thank in particular, David H. Sundwall of A Soft Answer, who maintains the LDS Blogs list. I noticed that he has kindly added my link to his own personal blog roll.

How cool is that?

  2. I think that's great your blog has been accepted - so even Mormon blogroll's don't understand hubpages -shame on them LOL. Though you can of course promote your hubpages here - add a RSS feed of your "latest" or "hottest" hubs onto our blog!

  4. Congrats on your listing.

    I must agree with most others that Hubpages is not a blog. There are definitely some big similarities to blogs, but the layout is different and it isn't designed with blog readers in mind. For example, it is hard to follow one author. Yes, it is possible with RSS feeds and the author's page, but it is more like that was added functionality instead of being designed around it. I'm not aware of being able to get a full page (with full text) of one author's posts, nor am I aware of how to get a full RSS feed and instead have to deal with the abstracts - or worse - the first thousand characters or whatever.

  5. schester -

    I'm not sure that I would disagree with the overall consensus either. Hubpages is really quite unique and as you say... makes it very difficult to follow one author.

    Funny you should mention that... I am currently working on publishing one of my Hubs and posting it on my profile page - that will index and categorize all of my Hubs thus far ...

    This will be my 50th Hub as LdsNana-AskMormon on Hubpages:-)

    HP needs to work this out for Hubbers and our readers - no doubt.

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.
