[tis] Guatemala 🛫 – 21/2016 – @bt4jc

b668a3d6-10f7-4bbc-8ff4-89a7439767e8Bryan Thompson of Simply the Story is going strong with travels and training. Read this short excerpt from his newsletter. And if you like this, you'll definitely want to subscribe, connect, and partner with him.

It's hard to believe that we are almost at the end of our time in Hemet, California. Well … for me anyway. Ami is due to stay here for another couple of weeks.
 
Where am I going? To lead an advanced Simply the Story training over two weekends and another training during the days between.
 
Prayers appreciated for Ami's recovery and treatment, and for special times in the Word of God in the Guatemala trainings, the presence of Jesus and rich encounters with God for all traveling in from four countries to these events.

[tis] Hope 😍 – 20/2016 – Update from Brian Thompson @bt4jc

I love how Brian Thompson stays connect, personal, and vision-driven in his email newsletters. And how he's able to live an integrated live.

Check out what's going on!

The third week of our training here in Hemet, California, is to be an ordinary STS workshop led by the attendees of the past two weeks of training. My role is to oversee (with another instructor) a team of people leading the workshop. Then we have one last week of training here before I take off to lead training in Guatemala for ten days.

Tips for Setting Up a Quality Online Newspaper with Paper.li

Tips for Setting Up a Quality Online Newspaper with Paper.li

Paper.li can be a great way for missionaries and church planters to share find and share great content, but only if you do it right. Otherwise, you might end up sharing things that embarrass you and others. Watch this short video and I'll show you the complete process from start to finish.

When I first started using Paper.li, I was sometimes embarrassed (or even aghast) because of what was in my paper. But then I connected with a friend who suggested a couple of tweaks. As we go through this video, I'm going to show you exactly what he suggested by setting up a brand new paper, complete with my content strategy.

Here are my 3 keys

  1. Create a content strategy
  2. Refine your Paper.li content
  3. Turn on social sharing

Of course, you'll also have to actually create a Paper.li paper. And we'll go through that, too. So…let's get started.

Create a Content Strategy

Before you create your paper, you'll need to define what kinds of things you want to share and what sources you want to pull from. For my content strategy, I want to build a paper out of the things I've shared on Twitter and a select list of guests, friends, and trusted resources.

When I started this, I created a Twitter list with all of the sources I wanted to pull from.

That's my secret sauce.

Create Your Paper.li

  1. First, navigate to http://paper.li

  2. Then connect your Twitter account

  3. On the top left corner, you'll find a “Paper.li” menu – click that

  4. Then click “Create New Paper”

  5. Enter some keywords or the title of your proposed paper

  6. Review the content and create the paper

Refine Your Content

Now that you have a newspaper, you'll want to refine the newspaper itself and also make sure it aligns with your content strategy. To do that, click the “gear” menu in the top right and edit the paper's settings.

For your content strategy, you'll want to make sure you're sharing your tweeted links, as well as the custom Twitter list (or lists) you've created for the paper. And you'll want to deselect the “Paper.li Top Stories.”

They might be good. But you never know what they might find on Twitter. So, it's a good idea to make sure you've selected the sources yourself.

Set up Sharing

Don't forget to turn on the sharing options for maximum engagement.

Save your Settings
