New Site?

I have managed to acquire a good bit of Web space and for just a few dollars can get setup with a new Web site. I am undecided if at this time I want to do that, but do have a couple of ideas for a second site.

My first idea was based around Web design. I thought about creating a site that would be to effectiveness in design what Cool Home Pages is to coolness. They list some really great-looking sites, but many of them are far from functional. It seems that in many people’s view a site’s effectiveness is less important than appearance, but I disagree. So that is the first idea. Being a Web designer it appeals to me, but I’m just not sure I have enough passion for the idea to actually dedicate the time to it.

A second idea is to create a sort of “Who’s Who” of the Christian world. It would be a site that would list Christian authors, speakers, etc and give links to their ministries, the books they have written, information about their ministries’ financial integrity, etc. I would categorize them by various means, such as occupation (pastor, author, speaker, etc) as well as possibly by theology, though it is more difficult to assign categories to theology. I have not found that sort of site on the Net and judging by the searches that lead to my site I suspect it is a site people would use.

Any input on this? Any other ideas you can think of for a site?

    It’s Easier to Tear Down than Build Up

    In my travels, I encountered a man whose work is demolition. When buildings are old and decrepit, or even when they just need to be removed to make way for others, his job is to destroy them and haul them away. New or old, big or small, plain or fancy—it makes no difference to him.…
