We opened the site in March, 2006.

We are a membership site that offers spiritual guidance, spiritual teachings and spiritual community to people of all faiths. The resources on our site are offered to help people deepen their relationship with God during these times of great change and upheaval on the Earth.
Do you make money from this site?
We make the site available to everyone and accept donations from those who wish to help support our work.
What is the main revenue stream for this site?
Our members offer donations one time or monthly.
If you were to sell this site, how much do you think it would sell for?
This is a non-commercial site and we have no plans to sell it.
What are your plans with this site?
The resources on the site are growing based on the needs of the members, and also based on the spiritual guidance and inspiration we receive about how to move the site forward. Currently we're in the initial stages of submitting the site to directories and increasing the traffic of our partner site WorldBlessings.com which is search engine optimized and which refers people to WorldBlessings.net through its e-mail list. As membership grows, depending on the needs of the members we may expand the resources of the site to include teleconference guided meditation or spiritual guidance sessions. At some point when people begin creating local spiritual support groups, we may travel to offer support these groups.
What sites are your biggest competitors?
We consider other like-minded spiritual sites to be partners in our spiritual mission of supporting the transformation of the Earth.

How have you promoted this site in the past?
We began offering spiritual guidance messages via an e-mail list on WorldBlessings.com in June of 2005. Friends of ours told their friends about it, and the list grew. Some people found the e-mail list through WorldBlessings.com . When WorldBlessings.net opened, we began publishing the guidance messages on the new site, and sending our e-mail subscribers to the new site. We just started site promotion recently by submitting to search engines and directories.
Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
By encouraging our members to share our RSS feed of spiritual guidance messages which can be syndicated on other sites. Also by sharing our articles, we can give people a code to syndicate individual articles for publication on their sites, and will submit articles to relevant sites. I've had an idea to use web decals, perhaps making a bulk purchase and sending one to our next 100 new members for them to put on their car! Our members often share the site with others that they feel could benefit from it. Also by letting my online business contacts at Ryze and other places know about the site, many of them are spiritually minded and would be happy to tell others.
