How Facebook’s Keeping You From What You Like

The tl;dr of the video and post below is simple. If you want to support and see all the content from your favorite websites and blogs (and I’m hoping that includes Camels With Hammers), you have to use an RSS or make stopping by directly part of your daily routine rather than passively wait for sites like Facebook to show you when there are updates.

I’ve been informed that if you go to the pages you want updates from there is a way to select to get notifications. I am told if you do this, you will get the same sorts of regular and automatic notifications as though you had subscribed to a thread. So please do that for your favorite Facebook pages if you want to still be updated through Facebook. But still that won’t always work when there are many updates to keep up with so remember still to actively visit sites.

This is an excellent video explaining how and why Facebook is now making it so that you won’t see in your feed the content from a lot of pages you liked. [Read more...]

This Weekend: A Camels With Hammers Blogathon

This weekend, I am going to seize an opening in my busy teaching schedule to get myself back into a writing habit by doing a blogathon.

After I Deconverted: I Started Blogging

In this post I thank readers–especially those who offered their readership and support in the early days when they were all the motivation I had to keep going and not quit–for helping this blog make it to four years old. Then I reminisce about my pre-CWH days as a blogger and my road to deciding to create CWH. [Read more...]

No Longer Quivering’s Vyckie Garrison Will Be…

…on The Camels With Hammers Show tomorrow at ~3pm Eastern! Watch us stream live at my YouTube page (and don’t forget to subscribe to the page to keep apprised with all new video clips). I will post the full video of our interview here on the blog afterwards and then make shorter clips.

I also have gone through and made more manageable clips of older episodes of The Camels With Hammers Show. If you scroll through my videos on my YouTube page you can see shorter clips with titles that can guide you to what most interests you about my interviews with people like Harvard Humanist and Patheos blogger James Croft, the group of young predominantly UK bloggers The Heresy Club, the thoughtful students of St. Cloud State University’s Secular Student Alliance, former Christian preacher Jerry DeWitt, and my openly gay then-Benedictine-monk John “Bede” Hazlet. (This week, John left the monastery. When I am at liberty to discuss publicly the circumstances, I hope to.) So, check out clips!

Finally, in preparation for my interview with Vyckie Garrison of No Longer Quivering, which is a fantastic hub for helping (primarily) women escape Christian patriarchy and which is the blog that launched Libby Anne’s Love, Joy, Feminism career, read my interview with her from a year ago.
