  1. Hi Ricardo!

    I recently came across your blog and have been enjoying reading through it very much. You have some interesting thoughts and ideas behind the symbiotic relationship of religion and the environment!

    I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing your blog on Glipho? Glipho is a new social blogging network that aims to promote the writing of its users and help build their audiences. We are trying to establish a creative community at Glipho, and your blog is just what we are looking for.

    As your blog is powered by WordPress, you can simply import all your old posts to Glipho without affecting your existing blog at all. You can use your Glipho account to connect to any other major social network accounts you may own, so you can spread your blog as far as possible. We also use our own social media accounts to promote your content.

    If you’re interested check out our website at http://glipho.com and have a look around. Please feel free to ask me any questions, and if you would like to receive an invite to set up an account!

    • Hi Teo, yep sounds like a good idea, I’d be down to working on glipho. I am not very techy, how do I do the import? Also, if I keep working from the wordpress platform, will it automatically go on to glipho?

  2. Hi Ricardo!

    I hope this message finds you in good health and spirits!

    I have been following your blog for sometime and enjoy reading your views on the environment and religion. The relationship between mankind and the environment is becoming more well known and I think your blog does a great job at giving a holistic perspective. I as well have been inspired by the environmental message of Pope Francis!

    I myself am trying to address this issue through my new line of reusable coffee mugs – Faithful Mugs. Check out my new website at faithfulmugs.com. I am trying to do my part by offering USA made ceramic to-go mugs that inspire us to protect the planet through hand-designed images and Bible verses that can be applied to today’s environmental issues.

    I am wondering if you would be willing to help promote the Word and stewardship through a shout out of my website and new line of mugs on your blog. In exchange for a shout out on your blog, I could offer value to your readers by creating a guest article on the issue of disposable coffee mugs, a ubiquitous issue that seems to have gone unnoticed and value to you, by offering a percentage of sales donated to the cause of your choice! I may also be able to hook you up with a complimentary mug. If you are interested in helping promote a sustainably minded business in exchange for donations and value to your readers, please contact me at faithfulmugs@gmail.com!

    Thanks so much and God bless,

    Juliene Sinclair
    Founder of Faithful Mugs
