I get requests from colleagues, students and ministry leaders regarding how to set up a -wiki, like my ChurchHealth.wiki
Here is my QuickStart Guide to creating a -wiki:
1. Get a URL that ends in .wiki
- For example, I use ChurchHealth.wiki.
- Get it at any domain registration service, such as GoDaddy.com
2. Go to wordpress.com
- Sign up and create a blog.
- You don’t need to call it a blog, you can call it a -wiki if it is an encyclopedia-type resource.
3. Write and link to articles that are relevant to your field and via links:
- Post videos,
- post articles,
- write articles,
- excerpt your books, etc.
4. Add a short introduction re. the relevance of each posting for your readers.
5. Tell others to “follow” your site … they will receive a short email synopsis when you make new posts.
- Thousands of students, colleagues and friends can follow the latest articles you discover or write in your field.
- Visitors can “search by word” to find articles relevant to their interest.
- You can “search by word” to find articles relevant to books/articles you are writing.
