Greg Willits from The Catholics Next Door came up with a great idea: to make March 15 ‘Catholic Media Promotion Day’, a global call to action to use Facebook, Twitter and blogs to promote all the great Catholic content that is out there on the internet.
“There’s Strength in Numbers,” Greg says. “Let’s get the Word out on one day about Catholic New Media.”
Four steps to join in this common effort to promote Catholic new media:
- On March 15, 2011, everyone with a blog, podcast, or Facebook page should list their favorite 3 blogs, 3 podcasts, 3 other media, 3 random Catholic things online, and their own projects.
- Then, post the link to your list on March 15th on the special Facebook page created for the occasion.
- Additionally, to help get the word out, press are asked to write articles and press releases for this day.
- Lastly, on March 15th, go to iTunes and leave at least 3 positive written reviews for various Catholic podcasts and 3 positive written reviews for Catholic mobile applications*.
*Sister Anne adds: might I suggest the following apps Beginning Contemplative Prayer, Healing Psalms and Prayers, The Rosary Miracle Prayer.
