Greg Willits of The Catholics Next Door and The Rosary Army recently came up with the idea of setting aside a day to promote Catholic media. He mentioned the idea in a Facebook status update, which caught my attention, so I joined in the conversation. The upshot? Catholic Media Promotion Day is coming up on March 15. Here’s the idea:
On March 15, 2011, everyone with a blog, podcast, or Facebook page should list their favorite 3 blogs, 3 podcasts, 3 other media, 3 random Catholic things online, and their own projects.
Then, post the link to your list here on March 15th: http://www.facebook.com/promotecatholicism
Additionally, to help get the word out, press are asked to write articles and press releases for this day.
Lastly, on March 15th, go to iTunes and leave at least 3 positive written reviews for various Catholic podcasts and 3 positive written reviews for Catholic mobile applications.
So please join us by visiting the Facebook Fan Page for this event, clicking the “Like” button, and then returning on March 15 to participate.
Greg discusses the origins of Catholic Media Promotion Day on the Catholic Weekend podcast on March 12.
