The Liturgist Reloaded

Please help digital difficulties

The Liturgist ReloadedA little help. Please.

The main part of this site is the content. Creating it. Discussing it.

Another part of this site which should, pretty much, be invisible – is the actual technical digital parts (the “invisibility” of this technical stuff is a good parable for how liturgy should work!).

Well recently it’s not been like that. My RSS Feed stopped. Google stopped putting me on its search results. Twitter has excluded me from its search (including the hashtags). Etc.

I’ve managed to fix, and thanks to others who have helped to fix, most (but not all) of the issues.

Please, if you run a website, or know someone who runs a website, put a clickable link called “liturgy” to the home page: liturgy.co.nz. If you run a blog, please add me to your blogroll, and write a blog post about this site with a link to the Liturgy home page. If your parish or community has a site – please get them to link. You can even put a badge on a site. All this reminds Google – this site is functioning fine! If you want to let us know that you’ve done this – just put it in the comments below. I hope that will encourage others in the community here to visit your site as well.

Please, if you are on facebook, “like” the Liturgy Facebook page. Please invite your friends to “like” that page also. I think that if you want to let the facebook formula know that you’d like to see the updates you need to pop in to that page from time to time, and maybe press “like” by a post occasionally. I think that’s how it works – but who knows!

If you like RSS feeds sign up to the RSS feed.

Twitter has decided to exclude me from its search; and my hashtags aren’t functioning. It’s nearly two weeks since I put in for support at Twitter. My support number is #5676029. So if you are on twitter (I presume you follow me @liturgy) please can you tweet “why @twitter is support #5676029 for @liturgy “not being in search” not fixed yet after nearly 2 weeks? Thanks. Plz RT”

Thank you to all of you who have let me know when things aren’t working. Thank you to all of you who have helped to fix things and given advice. I am not going to name you all. I believe the effort I put into this site is fruitful. Just one recent example: I recently received an email how a suggestion here had been implemented in his community, deepened their life in Christ, and turned the community around. I often get positive feedback like that. I appreciate your presence in this community and appreciate that you do some or all of my requests above which will help others to find this community.

  1. I have done what I can – hope it helps! Believe me: your efforts are fruitful. Your words are like oxygen turning tiny sparks of belief into warm flames. “Liturgy” is God-inspired, God-fuelled and God-centred. Don’t worry too much that the word “God” can’t be replaced with the word “Google” 🙂

    Bosco, I already liked you on Facebook earlier.
    I have put Liturgy in my RSS feed.

    BTW, I love your Keanu Reeves look-alike!! You should use that more often. Perhaps somewhere on the Facebook?

  3. Hi Bosco,
    Can’thelp on any of this sorry.

    Was just checking in to see if you had any comment on the liturgy approved by TEC for beloved pets. I will try and track down the link for you.

      1. Not sure, Zane, how your link connects with my concerns about this site and other digital presence 🙂 I think TEC’s approach of actually authorising services may be a better approach than our province’s where it is nearly impossible to ascertain what is not allowed. So, if you want to use these rites in this province, Zane – you are allowed to. I will be writing about authorisation etc. in a future post in the series reflecting on GSTHW. Blessings.

    1. Yes, June, I’m back on your Google Reader now – but I suspect there was about a fortnight when I wouldn’t have been. Thanks for any other “letting people know”. Blessings.

  4. You’re still showing up on my blog list on one of my blogs. I seem to have ‘unliked’ you on Facebook, so I’ve liked you again. And done the tweet thingie. Hope some of that helps.

    1. Ah, the communion of saints, Paul! Zane (see a previous comment) will be particularly thrilled by the place your dogs have in the community of faith. Blessings.

  5. I’ve added you to my blogroll, listed you as influential on Klout in various topics, noted your problems in Twitter. I hope at least some of it helps – perhaps you could reciprocate by a retweet or two.

    1. Thanks so much, Deacon Steve. I’ve retweeted a couple of your tweets and hope that that and the link here leads some more people to your site also. Blessings.

  6. How could such an important blog have failed? Anyway, I’m looking in from time to time, for my own understanding of where ACANZ is heading litrugically. You have my support.

  7. Bosco,
    Put one of your connections on on my page. Grandmère Mimi made me aware since I’m not online as much as in the past but you and your site have been an important part of my growing faith. Bless you.
