Get ready for a new and improved UUA.ORG


I was just looking at the January 2010 UUA Congregational Bulletin.  Among the contents is a flier announcing a new and improved uua.org (pdf).  February 1st the UUA will launch a new front page.  Not sure how much further this revision will go, but even a front page upgrade will be a vast improvement.  I am so glad that this site will be showcasing video.

I’m glad to see the UUA take this step.  Next?  I’d love for there to be a 100% newcomer oriented site with its own domain — something like unitarianuniversalism.org — that links back to the UUA for more information, as well as other great UU resources.   Maybe that needs to be an independent site…

What do you think?  Would a stand alone Welcome to Unitarian  Universalism site be a useful outreach tool or is it best to direct everyone to UUA.ORG?

  1. Since you’ve made a habit of getting domain names for the ages, you can add newtouu.com, .net and .org. All three are available, and all three kick the crap out of unitarianuniversalim.anything for spreading around.

  2. “I am so glad that this site will be showcasing video.”
    – If the video is embeded or otherwise begins playing or downloading as soon as a visitor lands on the page, that may cause visitors to not wait around for it and the page to load. If they don’t wait for the page to fully load, where will they go – further into the site or elsewhere?
