FAQ

I get a lot of questions emailed to me on a variety of different topics. Let me try to answer some of the FAQs here. If you don’t find the answer to your question, I also recommend using the search function. I’ll try to add to this page as questions arise.

What platform do you use for blogging? – I use WordPress. They offer a Getting Started with WordPress page that might answer some of your questions.

Do people send you free stuff or pay you for advertising? – You bet they do. It’s part of the formula for keeping the Morgan family solvent. Here’s my FTC disclosure statement to keep us on the up-and-up.

Why isn’t my comment showing up on your site? – We moderate all the comments submitted to my site. That means comments waiting for approval will probably stack up until I have a free moment. Please be patient. You may also want to check out my comment guidelines to increase the odds of your comment being published.

Will you link to my blog? – Due to the large number of requests, it’s not possible for me to do this. Here’s a little bit of blog coaching though–good content drives links. If you think you’ve written a quality post that my audience would be interested in reading, feel free to shoot me an email. I just can’t promise I’ll be able to link to it because of the number of requests that come in. Just because I don’t link to your blog, though, doesn’t mean I don’t love you.

Can you take a look at my blog/website and let me know what you think? – Again, I get this request a lot. I wish I could. I love good web design. (And, I’m sure yours is awesome!) With my focus on my family, my ministry and my own writing and speaking projects, I’m not able to offer that service.

Will you post articles from guest contributors? – I certainly will. Here are the guest contribution guidelines to help improve your chances of getting published.

May I republish posts from your site on my blog? – I’d prefer you don’t republish full posts; however, feel free to quote excerpts of 200 words or less. If you do, keep in mind that this is copyrighted material. Please acknowledge where it came from and include a link to the original post on my site.

May I reprint one of your articles or something from one of your books? – I’m not allowed to give that permission. You’ll need to contact the publisher of the magazine or book. By the way, you can find all of my previous books on Amazon.

I’d like to write a book, can you point me in the right direction? – I wanted to write a book for a number of years before my first one was published. Honestly, though, the opportunity to get published came looking for me. I started by writing articles for magazines and teaching workshops. That was pre-blog days. If you’re looking for specific direction, though, you can check out these guides by Michael Hyatt, former CEO of Thomas Nelson. Good luck!
