Twelve Years On: Primitive Christianity Revived, Again—And Still Going!

Can you believe it: the QuakerQuaker.org domain name was registered twelve years ago next month. Who would have thought that an all-volunteer side project with the quirky tagline would be continuing along? Thank you all for all the support and use over the years. Primitive Christianity Revived, Again, and Still Going?

Site update

It’s been awhile since the last update about the QuakerQuaker website. I’ve come to the conclusion that moving the main QuakerQuaker.org site over to a new social network service (WordPress) is not a good option. There’s two developments that made this an easy choice:

1) The current Ning service decided not to increase its monthly charge as it had announced. That means the various costs come out to about $50/month, which remains possible due to the generous ongoing donations I receive. 

2) No one really started using the new site. It’s always dicey to move a social networking site. It’s not something to do if you can find another option, as many of the more occasional users won’t go through the hassles. So for now, staying with Ning is the best option. 

Quick numbers:

The concept of QuakerQuaker was bubbling about in early 2005 but it was December when the name was finally registered. Some current numbers in honor of our almost-twelve year anniversary.

  • 3,389: Members on QuakerQuaker.org. 
  • 5,257: Likes and follows on Facebook
  • 3,163: Followers on Twitter
  • 143: Months since the QuakerQuaker name was registered.
  • 4,000: Web articles that have been shared (approximately)
  • 168: Quaker blogs followed every day to find new content to share.

Any donations Friends could make to the Paypal account would be very helpful for the move. You can start by going to http://bit.ly/quakergive. Other options are available on the donation page at http://www.quakerquaker.org/page/support. Thanks for whatever you can spare. I'm as surprised as anyone that this little DIY project continues to host some many interesting Quaker conversations twelve years on!

In Friendship,
Martin Kelley for QuakerQuaker
