Please help

You can read all the reasons why I’ve created this blog here, but in short, I have a strong desire to be a voice of hope, encouragement, and inspiration.  I’m dedicated to the task, and to teaching and testifying of our Savior and His gospel, and in the process, I hope to add to the voice of Mormons on the internet.  That’s my role, but I need your help.

See, I can only reach so many people on my own, but with your help, that reach can explode to unimagined proportions.  You can play an actual role in this vision of building the voice of good on the internet.  Here’s what you can do.

Tell others – The easiest thing to do is email others about the blog.  Tell your family, your friends, or anyone else within your sphere of influence. 

Use StumbleUpon – For those of you who don’t know about StumbleUpon, it’s a brilliant new social bookmarking site.  When you find a site on the internet that is particularly good, you can bookmark it on StumbleUpon, which then allows others to find it.

It works brilliantly.  Whenever someone adds one of my posts to StumbleUpon, that day I’ll receive between 200 and 400 unique visitors.  What’s more, usually those visitors are NOT Mormons.  Which means when you “stumble” one of my posts, it’ll automatically be sent to hundreds of new people.  It’s almost evangelical – your actions will result in hundreds of people seeing that particular post.

It’s an easy way for you to pioneer missionary work online.  And it’s free.

All you have to do is pick the post you want to share, then click the little “Bookmark” button that looks like this (usually found at the bottom of the page you want to share):

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Then click the link on the left that says “StumbleUpon”.  A little window will pop up where you can add a short review of the post, select what it’s about (type in “Religion, Mormon, LDS, Church” and whatever else that post might be about).  Then check the “no” box to verify there’s no adult content and click “Add your review”. 

Now simply fill out your information (you only have to do this once to create your account).  Now you’re done.

Whenever you find a post that you really like, just click the “Bookmark” button, and stumble it.  The more posts you stumble the more people will find Ongofu.

So please, contribute to the cause and spread the word!  I certainly appreciate your help.

  1. It appears that you are doing some real neat things. I thought I would introduce you to my website called http://www.itsagoodday.org. A website all about doing good and finding good out there. We are a G – Pg Video Site, finally a video site that filters filth. I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Hi, Rusty!
    I really like your blog and I am adding it to my blog http://www.freebookofmormon.wordpress.com. I have a page where you can read and download the Articles of Faith for anyone who is interested. Also, Book of Mormon downloads and other things Book of Mormon related in many languages. Come check it out when you have time.

  4. I am old enough to be your grandmother – but I must say I would love to have you for a GrandSon.
    I have four now – two are Special Spirits sent to us and will return the same way. Two more special spirits (one adopted) on Missions as we speak. I have 3 daughters (one adopted)

    I do understand your story – my parents handed me to my Grandmother and said here. I did make sure my Mother ,when she got older ,was taken care of until she died. I saw my Father only once when I was 17.

    It would be nice to meet you and give you a hug.
    P.S. I was born in SLC, am 76 and until today I have never been on a blog – still don’t know what I am doing.

  5. Kalo, we have a lot in common. I have 3 daughters, 2 adopted from Korea, and 8 grandchildren from 2 to 14. I had good parents, though, and a good childhood.

    I think Rusty could have a lot of Moms and Dads & Grandmas and Grandpas as many would be proud to claim him! It’s amazing what can be accomplished with the Lord’s help, as you know.

  6. Hi Rusty,
    I just have to say I am so inspired by you! Your “about me” section brought me to tears, and your desire to share the gospel is so compelling. Way to go!! I checked out a few of your articles including “Why Mormons don’t get paid” and I’m so impressed with your thoughts and how respectfully you answered the questions. Thank you for using your God-given gifts to bless lives. I will most definitely link this blog onto mine and share it with my friends and family. Thank you!

  7. You guys really are so nice. I do greatly appreciate your kindness, and I’m overjoyed that my experiences and opportunities to communicate have inspired you. That’s what matters most to me.

  8. Reading aboutmade my day!…I hope I can find your blog again
