Starting a Blog to help deconvertees
Think I've mentioned before about possibly writing some form of self help book for helping deconvertees, although have thought this maybe better as a blog, for those seeking help to access more easily. This would be a page/blog/website with articles, Q&A's and just general advice for those needing it during a confusing and stressful time in their lives.

As such, if anybody would like to volunteer for a bit of Q&A for this side project which would hopefully give others some insight on what religion you used to hold/why you deconverted/what your life is like now/any advice etc, then let me know here and I'll get it sorted when possible Smile

I would be willing to volunteer if this Q&A session were to happen no later than two weeks from now.

If anything it'll be written questions that I'll post on here/PM to people, and those interested just reply with the answers, and I'll post Smile

Hoping to write some short articles/help guides or something also. Only just really started getting the wheels moving on this today, so may take a few weeks to get everything sorted.

You can count me in then.

Can I recommend using the Ask An Atheist section?

Just throw the questions in there and see what you get. Expect also lots of flippancy and sarcasm, of course.

Also in there are some questionnaire type things that theists have posted before as school projects... those may give some ideas for questions.

No worries Jen, you have now been put on Zi List, (Not the naughty list...or are you? Wink )

Seriously though, it's a rough idea I've had bouncing about in my head and with all the recent talk of creationism/people like Ken Ham [Massive tools], I thought it's as good a time as any to put something out there that might help somebody come to an informed decision. TTA has really helped me find a place where I can talk about this type of thing, and I've always been an atheist so for those wanting to talk about coming out of religion or perhaps having conflict with themselves/religion (for one reason or another), I'm hoping something like this would help them Smile
