This website is currently undergoing a major reconstruction and redesign. So many components of the site will change that I will have to do it in small bits and bites (and bytes) to accomplish everything. Please bear with me as I have a dozen other projects going at the same time.
Ex-JW.com made it’s first appearance as a simple blog in January 2009. it offered very little at the time, but laid out our goals for the future. EX-JW.com was hoping to become the equivalent of Readers Digest, Time magazine, and National Enquirer all rolled into one and then direct it toward former and current Jehovah’s Witnesses, their families, and their critics.
There was one other major goal that I set for the site: Base everything published on the site on historical facts and latest news – and avoid direct discussions or critiques of theology, doctrinal debates, and personal religious beliefs. Here is how we announced our arrival:
Ex-JW.com will be your online resource for just about everything you would ever want to know about the Watchtower Society, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and former Jehovah’s Witnesses.
If you are, or have ever been associated with the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ organization, then you will want to visit here often. Here are just a few of the features that we plan to provide to our readers:
- Directories to other Jehovah’s Witness websites
- Lists of famous people and public figures connected to Jehovah’s Witnesses
- Book reviews. Books written by and about Jehovah’s Witnesses
- Historical and background information about the Watchtower Society
- Direct links to books and products about Jehovah’s Witnesses
- News updates and links about JWs and the Watchtower Society
- Guest commentaries and opinion articles
- Current gossip and behind the scenes information about JWs
Our goal is to provide you with a one-stop website that will point you to the best (and the worst) of information and news about Jehovah’s Witnesses, ex-JWs, and the Watchtower Society.
Check back often and be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed to keep up on anything new as it is published.
So for the next few weeks (mostly between October 15 and December 31, 2015) you may see that our home page has been replaced with a very attractive, but completely unrelated graphic that says:
Ex-JW.com will be back soon after some updates.
We promise not to be gone too long.
If you feel you need to communicate, suggest a new article subject, or complain about something, please write me at Contact@ex-JW.com and I’ll try to get back to you quickly.
In the meantime, keep watching this space.
