Welcome to our new, free blog hosting platform.
If you had a blog in the past at www.e4God.com/blogs/ then you need to know that those blogs are about to be deleted.
To save your old blog - log in as though you were going to post, find the MANAGE link on men in control panel, then find EXPORT link on submenu under the word MANAGE, and export the blog content, saving to your computer.
Create a new blog account here at www.e4God.com/freeblogs/
Import your saved blog content.
It sounds harder than it is. It is very easy.
God will be glorified when we close the old blogs and delete thousands of porn and drug spam blogs.

Our old blogs are now open again, for 3 days only, to allow former bloggers the chance to recover their old content.
As a God honoring site, we had to close the old blogs when they were overrun by porn and drug spammers, etc. The abuse was too rampant and concerted for us to overcome. And so we laid down our “web life” here as free Christian blog hosting providers in favor of purity and not giving the devil a foothold.
As you now know, we started a new blog with WORDPRESS standard version instead of WORDPRESS MU.
The blog you are reading now is our new blog. It is easier to maintain as far as keeping spammers out - but the downside is that it does not allow each member to register their very own own blog name, or create and customize their own theme.
Going Forward, former blog owners have two basic options.
OPTION ONE - MOVE YOUR OLD CONTENT TO ANOTHER BLOG PROVIDER
Login to your old control panel, at the same web address you used to have for your old blog. In the control panel (SITE ADMIN) find a link for EXPORT or BACKUP. Save the resulting file to your computer. Later, you can upload this export to a fresh install of Wordpress, or another blog that can import a wordpress backup.
Any wordpress hosting provider will do, but some are better than others - faster, more reliable, won’t run objectionable ads on your blog… so do some research!
OPTION TWO - WE CAN START OVER WITH NEW WORDPRESS MU TO PRESERVE YOUR OLD BLOG ADDRESS
We can install a fresh version of Wordpress MU - the software that ran our old blogs - at the same URL as before, so that you can keep your domain / URL / Web Address as before…
If you have lots of links out there pointing to your old blog, this would be a good solution.
If we gave you a week to backup - then closed the old blogs, it would shut down thousands of blog spammers. Once we launch the new installation, you could then upload your backup. The new installation would probably have a few dozen to a hundred or so of our best old blogs (instead of thousands of spam blogs) thus accomplishing our goal of purity.
The new site would be easier to maintain on a day to day basis, as far as eliminating spammers. We would not have to sort through 5000+ blogs nor look at all the smut to do it.
However, we must at the same time have a volunteer staff of moderators to prevent porn and drug site spammers from overrunning the new site.
Comments? Any volunteers?

Do you have a story about how Jesus changed your life, your family, or your city?
Were there miracles? Healings? Amazing Transformations? Maybe it was simple but profound?
The Stories of Jesus include personal testimonies, news reports, and ministry reports.
One of our God given goals is to build the world’s largest collection of online testimonies here at www.e4God.com
Another is to help Christians share news reports from a Christian Perspective. The media giants spin their stories and spin public perception until you would think that all news was bad news. Services like ours can help you report local news from a Christian Perspective.
Finally, we want to help ministries and missionaries report their news.
C’mon… Tell me the stories of Jesus. He is Alive and Well. Tell the World!

Free Blogs - Christian Blogs, Growing up?
Ten years ago I started a web hosting company. Due to my sense of calling in this regard, the first web site I set up was www.e4God.com. At the time, it was a message board site. Soon it became the only Christian Blogging site where a believer could get a free blog without running the risk of unwanted ads appearing on the free blog.
Now, all these years later, with over 5000 blogs having been created, we have made a dent in the darkness. Satan is not pleased! We are attacked by blog spam and porn spam, but we STAND against the enemy, holding our ground claimed for the Lord.
But, the opportunity to have a free christian blog is not unique to our site. So we have to ask… What’s next? How do we reinvent ourselves to serve the Kingdom best?
What online service is needed by God’s people? Where do we grow from here? Please send your thoughts by posting a comment.
