Megan and I are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Redeemed Reader, run by Janie Cheaney and Emily Whitten. We have long admired their work on their website, have read their columns in WORLD Magazine, and have read and admired Janie's young adult novels (four to date). Beginning today, we will both be contributing regular columns/posts on Redeemed Reader as well as helping manage behind-the-scenes details for the quickly growing website. This explains our relative inactivity as of late on Literaritea.
So, what does this mean for Literaritea? Initially, nothing, save for a lesser amount of attention from us. For the time being, Betsy will continue writing sporadic book reviews, and we will keep all of our existing content. We will be putting our greater attention, though, to our work with Redeemed Reader--you might say Literaritea is more of a hobby and Redeemed Reader is more of a professional commitment in terms of the type and amount of effort we will be contributing to both. We will wait to see what the Lord has in store for the future of both sites!
We'd like to encourage all of our regular readers, if you are not already doing so, to follow Redeemed Reader. For our email subscribers, know that one option we are exploring already with Janie and Emily is how to get an email subscription option going for Redeemed Reader. You may sign up for their email newsletter while you wait for more options! They also have RSS feeds enabled for those of you who subscribe to Literaritea by that method. For our Twitter followers (the few, the proud, ...), you can still follow "Literaritea." Besty will be tweeting RR posts from the same account for a while. We'll keep folks up to date on any communication-related changes. In addition, if you are on facebook, be sure to check out Redeemed Reader's Page.
Come on over and read our biographies on Redeemed Reader tomorrow, look for some Easter-related book lists later this week, and catch our first "official" posts on Redeemed Reader the week after Easter.
