At cribbsification.com, I work hard to bring you high quality, entirely free content that edifies, instructs, and entertains. All the while, I stick with a high standard for content that elevates the reader, expresses my sentiment and stays in line with my life’s convictions. The reality is that I run this thing from home in Chicago, Illinois. I enlist the help of guest writers from time to time, but mostly hear or read about ideas and concepts that I think will help my readers be the best people they can be. All of the features were thought up by me and fulfill my purpose of helping good people become better people. I have no editorial board, no marketing staff, no PR people, and no assistants. Let’s be clear, I wish I did, but I also don’t have a big budget for that at this time.
I have decided to open up the floodgates and let folks know how they can help out and support this website and the brand. There are a lot of ways to do so and I share quite a few ways you can help cribbsification.com in 2016. Do one or two or do them all.
Before we go any further, let’s clarify, when most people say “support” they mean money when, in fact, money is the least of my suggestions. Dont get me wrong, money provides momentum and resource and who wouldn’t want that for their vision? However, you’d be surprised to know that there are many ways to help my efforts that don’t include monetary substance at all.
We truly appreciate any and all support our readers provide in keeping us running, growing, improving, and spreading the Good News far and wide. In advance I say: “THANK YOU”
20 WAYS THAT YOU CAN SUPPORT cribbsification.com
- SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTER
In the monthly cribbsification newsletter, we review what we’ve been doing for the month, preview upcoming events and happenings and enlighten you on features, posts and info @ cribbsification.com that you may have missed. It’s humorous, it’s informative and it’s unobtrusive. I will not inundate you with countless emails. I promise.
- FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK
“Like” the Cribbsification page. Get notifications on Facebook.
If you actually want to see the stuff I share on Facebook, it’s not enough to follow the page. In recent years, Facebook has taken steps to “declutter” users’ news feeds by creating algorithms that determine what content to include or not include in feeds. So even if you follow a page, you might not see any of the content that page shares, because Facebook has decided for you that you wouldn’t be interested in it (even though you decided to follow them). If you follow Cribbsification on Facebook, but haven’t seen any postings in a long time, this is why.
To ensure that you actually see the content that I share on Facebook, you need to select to see posts first on our Page Updates option. To do so, simply hover over the “Liked” button, and click on “Posts in News Feed” in the drop-down box. A pop-up window will appear. You’ll need to select, “See First”.

- DISCOVER SOME OF THE “Artists You Should Know” AND TELL THEM YOU HEARD ABOUT THEM @ cribbsification.com
There are some amazing musical artists on the independent scene. I try to feature them all in our “Artist You Should Know” feature. There are snippets and video so you can get to know them and their music. Once you’ve grown fond of them, drop them a line in their fan email or on their social media pages and let them know you heard about them at cribbsification.com – even if you already knew them – tell ‘em, anyway. It helps me do what I do and fortifies relationships in the industry and the Kingdom. Also, if you know any artists who are making great strides in their endeavors, let us know.
- PRAY FOR US
It may seem overly religious, but you’d be surprised what a little prayer can do. My work’s foundation is Faith. All that I do is to benefit people as a whole. I have taken on this task and been very cautious with the platform, albeit small, that God has given us. Please pray that these efforts help, uplift and enlighten people and provide them with encouragement and hope. Pray for cribbsification.com and everyone connected to it.
