Looking For Second Income?

Hi, I'm Roger Blazic, producer of this site and owner of

In February of 2009, I started building businesses online. My website and many of the blogs I produce are dedicated to helping individuals find and build online income by starting their own business.

My headquarters site has information on how to start a business. There is still a lot of content I plan to add to the site, but it's a good reference point for those interested in online entrepreneurship.

I believe that everyone should be building a 2nd income. It can come in handy to pay for the extras in life and as it grows you'll have a cushion if something ever happened to your primary source of income.

Several of the business ideas on can be started FREE, but they require a lot of work to get them going. I know, I'm neck deep in launching several projects.


However, I also have two simple, low-cost, turnkey business opportunities. You can be in both for less than $25.

For details, see the following links.

Internet Business - Takes you to a blog site with videos and full details.

Fun Food Distribution Business
- Takes you to a page on with a video and details.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions: 702-478-6241

To Your Success,

Come To Church This Sunday

A while ago, I had a conversation with a friend. I asked him if he ever went to church. He said, "No." My next question was, "Why?" He said, "No one ever asked me to go."

Well, I'm inviting you to join us this Sunday. If you're in Las Vegas, come to my church, Canyon Ridge Christian Community. It's in the northwest part of the valley. If you're not in Las Vegas, you can listen to podcasts of our services.

In big signs on the side of the main building it says, "Come as you are." And we mean it.

You don't have to worry about what to wear. We have every fashion choice you can imagine showing up. It doesn't matter if you've never been to church or haven't attended in years. You won't be alone. There are many people who have heard about Canyon Ridge and thought they'd give it a chance.

We have an awesome community of Christians. I have never been part of a better church in my life. At Canyon Ridge, you'll find a very relaxed atmosphere, terrific music, stimulating sermons and fellowship. I've never met a nicer congregation.

So, come to church with us this Sunday. Click on the church link above and you can see details about our services, including photos.

Looking To Hire? We'll Post Your Opening

One of the services I wanted to provide on this blog was to create a job referral bank. I'm looking for companies in Las Vegas who are hiring, and I'll post the opening to this blog, FREE.

I'm also offering to people who are looking for work the opportunity to post their resume or their skills on this blog.

Another service that will be offered through a group of web pages and blogs will be low cost web advertising for start-up companies. The service will include a listing on a special web page on my headquarters site, a link to any website/blog you may have, plus a blog page on a new blog site I'll be developing. All of the web pages and blog pages will be promoted worldwide through twitter messages.

I have a system called the TWITTER BOMBER@ that can produce up to 7,000 messages on twitter in a 10 day period. Not all of the messages will be dedicated to this service, but there will be hundreds of messages posted over the course of a week.

Plus, advertisers will be given compressed links to the web page and to their blog page so they can easily send the message out via email or through twitter or social networks like Facebook. This gives them an instant web marketing plan that they can manage themselves without all of the hassles of starting a website, creating a blog and figuring out a way to promote the whole mess. I've got the pipeline already created, you just need to get on board.

It's a great way to have a web presence for a reasonable price.

Price will be $50 for 6 months. You will be granted authorship to the Start-Up Blog (title not yet determined). You can post to the blog as often as you wish. I'll teach you the secrets I've learned on how to get massive attention on Google searches by using a blog.

Just to show you I know what I'm doing, you need to do a little test. I used to own and ad agency in Las Vegas (2000-2006), Blazic Design. Google that name and see how many listing come up.

Because I was frequently interviewed on radio, TV and in print for my advertising and branding opinions during the run of the ad agency, I wound up with about a page, page and a half of Google listings that came up when you Googled my name: Roger Blazic.

In mid-MARCH of 2009, I started blogging. Run my name in a Google search today and see what you get: Roger Blazic

How many pages come up when you Google your name or your company's name?

This whole ad program will take me a week or two to get all the components up on the web. There will be a limit to the space available. If you'd like to be considered for the ad slots, email me, Mr. Questions, at and put START-UP all in CAPS in the subject line. Include your name, the name of your business and a brief explanation of what you plan to do. Don't forget to add contact info - like an email or a phone number (optional).

I won't promote any business that contains adult content, violence toward any humans or animals. This is a Christian blog... What would the guy with the sandals do? Figure it out.

Let's help some people get jobs filled, find jobs and get their businesses started.

A Friend Needs A Ride

Today, I got to know a guy with an amazing story of recovery. He's working hard to do the right thing. He lives with a 65 year old chemist in a small apartment in Vegas - in what he calls, "not the best neighborhood." I live in a mansion in Silverstone ranch. But due to a business failure, I may be forced out. I'm trying to rebuild my fortune with online businesses. I need money. These two guys could use a better, safer place to stay. A connection was made - all on Facebook.

The guy that is rebuilding his life works on The Strip. He does not have a valid driver's license. I believe he's been riding a bike to work. If he moves in with me, he'll need a ride to and from work.

I am looking for anyone you know who lives in the NW part of town and works down on the Strip. I'd like to match him up with someone who can pick him up at my home in Silverstone Ranch and take him to and from work. I need a Christian soldier. I'm sure he'd be glad to pitch in for gas.

If you know of anyone, have them email me at: and put RIDE SHARE in the subject line.

Reconnecting And Seeking Peace

Today, I was blessed. I finally took the time to get to church at Canyon Ridge.

For three months, I've been working day and night to get my soil prepared and my seeds planted for my new career in online entrepreneurship. Working round the clock and barely sleeping for almost 90 days made getting to church hard.

Early this morning, though, I wasn't quite sure making it to the Ridge was in my future.

I was up all night blogging, commenting and replying in a tennis-like verbal match between myself and about 60 atheists. I posted a rather terse and harsh commentary on one blog, voicing my displeasure with the minutia that atheists like to quibble over. Responses came fast and hard. I was returning volleys all night with both hands on my keyboard.

At 5:50 am, I decided to retire my troops from the battle and get some rest. Within ten minutes, I was sleeping. When the alarm rang at 9:15 am, my body whimpered, "Do we have to go to church today?" My mind said, "Yes. It's important." The feeling I had about returning to the Ridge was compelling. In slow motion I began to prepare my second grade daughter and myself for a trip to church.

There have been a number of times where I missed a Sunday or two at the Ridge. After a few absences, I'd get the same compelling feeling, "You BETTER GO today!" Today was one of those days.

My daughter and I arrived late, missing all of the opening worship songs. Announcements were being concluded. I spotted one of the Pastors, Mitch Harrison, in the large open entrance area and shook his hand, introducing myself, "Hi, I'm Roger Blazic from Facebook." There is a growing community of Canyon Ridge friends on Facebook. It's an excellent way to get connected. I have identified about 60 people out of my 270 friends who attend Canyon Ridge. I think there are more.

Natalie and I found a seat in the upper section, right in front of one of the large video screens. Executive Pastor, Kevin Odor was being introduced. Our timing was perfect.

If you're not familiar with Canyon Ridge Christian Community, the weekend services feature a central theme or topic, which is presented for two to six weeks. Each service starts with Praise and Worship music from probably the best P&W singers and musicians in the country. I've seen a lot of church bands, this crew should have their own show on The Strip, they're that good. Music is followed by annoucements. Then, there is usually a short drama performed on stage by members of the church, which play out the week's topic that is part of the overall theme. The scripts and acting are as good as any you'd see at an auditorium with a $50+ entrance fee. But this is church, it's FREE. Dramatic skits lead into the pastor's sermon. Following the sermon, the P&W crew comes back out and never fails to perform an emotionally moving song that solidifies everything presented prior in the service. Communion and a collection follow. A final song sends us to the outside world, where hopefully, we'll put the message of the day into use.

In the wake of my after-hours battle with the godless, today's message could not have been any more poinient. Pastor Odor, in his gentile yet engaging delivery began the topic of the day, "Live at Peace." Today's message was the second in the Series: Wii in it together.

Kevin told us of a meltdown he had with his wife years ago and how they worked toward reconciliation. I had a similar meltdown when I made my first comment on the atheists' criticism of The Bible's genealogy of Jesus. I wasn't very nice. I was angry and frustrated, insulted and offended by the constant barrage of mocking and inaccuracies perpetrated by the godless free thinkers that I had seen for over two years.

The nine years I spent on the road in rough towns performing stand-up comedy came to the surface. I let loose an expeletive filled rant on the non-god fearing author's blog post - not directed at him, but at atheists in general. The author, with the screen name on, GodlessLiberal, did not deserve what I unleashed. He just happened to be the spark that set off the fumes of a 26 month journey I'd taken into the world of atheism. Each week over the last two years, I've spent a dozen hours or so in atheist chat rooms, forums and on blogs. I haven't been treated very decently by those without God. And I've seen some sites and pictures depicting Jesus, the Pope and other Christian icons in vile and revolting positions and acts. The sheer classlessness of each of those, Jokes, as they like to call them would make any decent person's skin crawl. GodlessLiberal's piece was actually well researched and written. But its tiny spark proved incendiary. I exploded. Comments and replies seemed to focus more on my cussing than the message. Pastor Odor's sermon convicted me. I was wrong.

As Kevin wove his way through lessons from Roman 12:18-21, Matthew 5:9, Romans 13:2-4, Deuteronomy 32:35, and Proverbs 25:21-22, I felt the egg hardening and cracking on my face. I felt ashamed. Not at what I said, because I still believe in my position about atheisms' hollow voice, but about how I said it.

The final message from Pastor Odor, "Live at peace with everyone by showing them kindness," punctuated my thoughts and left me with a lot to consider. Communion was a very moving experience for me.

At the conclusion of the service, I made a point to drag Natalie all the way down to the front of the stage. I wanted to introduce myself to the P&W Ministry Leader, Tom Engelhardt. Tom is a an accomplished singer, guitar player and piano player. I think I saw him playing another instrument once before. He's a talented guy, I don't see much limit to his abilities.

Standing at the front edge of the stage, I called out, "Tom!" and caught his attention. He came over and I said, "Hi, I'm Roger Blazic from Facebook." I had just complimented him a day or so earlier online and he recognized me. "Funny how you can actually meet people on Facebook," he said to me. I agreed. I shot him another compliment and headed up the long stairs toward the courtyard where people gather, linger and chat after the service.

I tracked down my buddy John, head of security, who I met in my Small Group. John's been an incredible friend. I developed several good friends from the six months or so I was able to attend Small Group.

Limping across the courtyard with the assistance of a cain was a man I'd had a brief conversation with six or seven month's prior. He was considering making Canyon Ridge his home, leaving a Baptist church where his wife was ensconced. I'd spotted him almost every week since that first meeting. I introduced myself to him; Ron was glad to chat. I gave him my card after a few minutes and we parted ways.

Natalie was parched, with the temperature climbing above 100. We snuck into the café and grabbed some cold sodas. Sam, one of my best friends in the world, was volunteering in the café. His shift was nearly over. While I was waiting for Sam to complete his final tasks, I saw through the windows Pastor Odor walk by. I jumped up, raced around tables, bolted out the door and tracked him down.

I told him about how his sermon hit me hard. We chatted and prayed. It was a moving moment. He concluded our chat with, "Thanks for downloading." After the night I'd had online, he could not have chosen more appropriate words.

Sam, Natalie and I headed off for lunch. Leaving the Canyon Ridge parking lot, I was a different person than when I arrived. And that's why I keep going back. Each week that I attend, I come away with something that is applicable in my life. During the last 33 months I've been attending services at Canyon Ridge, I've never left and thought, "Well, that wasn't worth it." Every single service has moved me, taught me, inspired me. It's like the library, you can get so much, you just have to make the choice to be there.

Canyon Ridge produces podcasts of their sermons. They are available a few days to a week after presented. For podcasts and more information on Canyon Ridge Christian Community, click here to visit If you are not in the Las Vegas area, I still highly recommend the podcasts. Subscribe today.

In Peace,

Subject: YOU'RE DIALED IN TO THE TOP Re: I'm the boss

You've just landed a key communication tool in THE GAME. No one else
has the email account for me, THE GAME CREATOR.

Until THE GAME gets underway, an auto-responder on this email will
continuously send this message out.
So don't waste your time trying to contact me until THE GAME gets going, OK?

However, you can share this email. In fact, I'd send it to a LOT of people.

Just forward this message to everyone you know. It will pay off down
the road in THE GAME.

They can add my email to their accounts, too.

I have a ton of surprises and PRIZES planned for THE GAME.

Attend the event

The more you know, the better you'll do.

About ten minutes ago, I found something on the Internet that sent a chill down my spine.

Easter revolves around a time period. Our LORD dies on Friday, and three days later rises from the tomb. Death, rebirth - in three days.

As a prolific writer on the Internet, I'm always checking to see how my works are climbing up the ladder of lines on Google search pages. "Getting to the top" on Page One is everyone's goal. Hitting page one is cause for celebration.

Unless you hit the jackpot on a particular keyword, your ascent in the search engine world is usually gauged by the volume of information you have produced, which can only be accumulated with time. There aren't a lot of ways to cheat the formula (that I know of).

After resuming my daily feature Proverb A Day, I used the title in a Google search to check my altitude. To my surprise, I was #2 on Page 2, an amazing feat, considering the fact that I started the site on March 15, 2009, and began the Proverbs series the following day. Quite literally, I have defied the laws of gravity and I have no idea why.

When I was doing my Google search, I had to check out who was at the top. The second listing on the golden First Page had the exact same title, Proverb A Day, as my posts. A click brought me to a familiar Blogger template and lots of Proverbs. At the top of the home page on this site, the author had penned a farewell, stating he had completed his work after 613 submissions. the very last post said he had moved to another site. Ironically, the date format, placing the year first, is the exact same format that I use to catalog my computer files. The eerie part is that this post was made on March 12, 2009, marking the end of a journey; almost like a death - three days before I launched my site to continue the relay race for souls on the Internet. At right are the screen shots of the posting dates of the site that passed and the one that was born. Did Jesus pass the baton to me? Or was this just a strange coincidence.

Throughout my life I've had a LOT of strange coincidences, where the odds of what happened seemed to defy gravity and the best odds makers in Vegas.

One extremely chilling experience involved rushing a friend to the hospital. Her hand was inflamed to the size of a football from a staph infection. The only way I could get her to stop screaming was to get her to pray. Granted the volume of the prayer was nearly ear-shattering, but it was a relief from her agonizing screeches. Our prayer was very brief, "Please take care of Pat, for we are your faithful servants." "We are your faithful servants." After a mile or two of recitation, a car whips around us on Cheyenne Ave. and the Nevada license plate reads, F8THFL.

I have story after story of all these precise timing moments of events throughout my life. Some people that are seeking God First (GF) expect the LORD to come into their life to the rousing beat of an introduction theme as if played by the Tonight Show band. From what I know, that won't happen. But there are lots of little whispers, moments that make you think and wonder, that may be a voice speaking to you. If you pay close attention, feed your mind with The Word, and listen, you just might hear the rapid pace of feet rushing toward you and be able to see a hand extending a baton to you to grasp and continue a journey where someone else left off.

Look around. Jesus always put the focus on others. The more you look beyond your mirror, the more you will see. Allowing your mind to let the LORD speak to you, might just put you on a path you never dreamed possible.

A Place To Call Home

This site is open to anyone, regardless of their beliefs. The majority of our visitors and regulars will be Christian. You'll also find quite a few people from Canyon Ridge Christian Community in Las Vegas, NV. If you are not from Las Vegas, we're glad you found our site radiating from the desert.

We also welcome individuals who are curious about Christianity and may be interested in beginning a spiritual journey.

If you are not associated with any church or religious denomination and are seeking a loving Christian community in Las Vegas, have a seat. If you are not from Las Vegas, (we won't tell anyone) bookmark this site and become part of our family.

I've led a horrible life. If you have had a life you might not want printed on the front page of your local newspaper, you will probably find some people here with similar stories. Jesus would have sought you out for a chat. Why would we do otherwise?

There is no sin that could exclude you. We've all sinned, and we continue to sin. But we know that there is power in The Word and the more time we spend with the teachings of the man from Nazareth, the better our lives will be. Join us.

I'm gay. Great. We all have the same creator. He made each and every one of us out of love. We hope you will find more of the same here.

No ID check for Atheists and Agnostics.
Each of us goes through different paths in life. Based on our histories and our influences we come to a diverse range of conclusions. Maybe you've had voices in your life that seemed to force you into your beliefs. We hope to be different. All we ask is that you respect everyone that calls this site home - for a cup of coffee, an hour, a day or a lifetime.

I'll do anything to sell you a car. John Barr impersonators are welcome to perform all the wacky stunts they would like. However, we treat evil high prices with love and respect. We do not condone violence. Please do the same. (If you're not from Vegas, ask someone to explain this one.)



We have a few simple rules on this site. Our URL is open to the world, we are not a closed community. However, we are a selective community.

Jesus Christ left us with two powerful commandments:

Love God with all of your heart and soul


Love one another as yourself

Jesus taught us that these two commandments superseded all other commandments. We would hope that you would take both to heart.

However, in our modern world, an ever-growing population of people don't believe in the G-man mentioned in commandment number one. That is fine. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Maybe visiting this site frequently will show you why we believe in a humble carpenter that became a teacher and spiritual guide to multitudes around the world for generations.

Regardless of your belief in commandment number one, there is nothing that Richard Dawkins or any other modern voice can say to challenge the pure truth in commandment number two - and that is a hard rule on this site.

We accept a variety of viewpoints, but we will not tolerate violators of commandment number 2, regardless of their current religious or secular beliefs. Posting hatred, profanity, prejudice or any other remarks with the intent to belittle, disgrace, embarrass or ridicule anyone is cause for your posts being deleted and your user name being blocked from this site. Please don't waste our time.

Conversely, our site believes that all judgment is reserved for our Creator. If you are a non-believer or of a different faith from Chritianity and any of our posters condemn you and guarantee that you will burn anywhere besides the Vegas desert in the middle of August, they will have their vitriolic posts deleted and also be banned from this site.

Jesus spent more time with sinners than he did with saints. He showed the outcast compassion and love. But He was also honest with them and did convict them of behavior that would not be good to continue. That is the example of behavior we hope to convey on this site.

If you have a hard heart, please read this post from one of our other sites. After you read the post, you can click on your browser's BACK button to return to this site.



Every successful project requires a clear vision for it to sprout, grow and produce fruit.

As the creator and administrator of this site, I had an extremely clear and massive vision.

I know for a long time Linda Sabatini, CR ONE, and others have talked and sent emails about building a CR community on FACEBOOK.

FB is just too cluttered and unfocused to adequately provide members and friends of Canyon Ridge a community environment.

Those of you that call Canyon Ridge your spiritual home know how special our church is. Everything at CR from the campus, the services, the community outreach, education, care and aid are all exceptional. CR is growing and thriving because - to use a business analogy - it produces a product that people want. Spiritually, CR feeds a diverse and eclectic congregation through powerful and moving services. Everything at Canyon Ridge is exceptional and extraordinary. When you have a community that creates that much of an emotional experience for its followers, you want to talk about it and share it. Social Networking sites have too many distractions to share CR effectively, in my opinion.

My vision for this site was to develop a site that provided links, information, conversation and ideas that were highly desirable to its visitors, and they'd want to come back. The CR website, is a well-designed, engaging website, but it is a directory and information site. It is not an interactive site.


The primary purpose of this site is to provide an interactive community environment for Friends of Canyon Ridge. Here we can share things we learn about the church, announce events, create a calendar, explain church outreach with more depth, and share personal experiences from around the Ridge. There are no limits to the topics and ideas that can become part of this site.

As part of this community, I want to create a job bank - visitors to this site that have employment to offer can submit the information and we will post it to the site. People that are looking for work can offer links to their resumes, post qualifications and/or offer their services to this community.

Serve the needy. I envisioned people being able to come to this site and express their needs - whatever they may be. Maybe they need help paying a bill, food for their kids, help with an elderly family member, assistance moving, or just someone to connect with. My hope is that they will find what they are looking for at this site or follow a link to CR and get it there.

If you want to be proactive on the "D" in WWJD, you need knowledge. Providing an easily accessable online community allows people to share, ask and offer what they have or are willing to give. The scope of services and links provided by this site are only limited to the imaginations of its participants. The more people that participate in this site, the more our collective consciousness and understanding of our community beyond the CR parking lot will become evident.


For many of us, when we are not in church, we spend a tremendous amount of time sitting in front of a computer. Email and websites are part of our everyday routine. For some, the thought of losing their email account would be a personal disaster. Electronic communication will only increase with time, not decrease.

More and more people are turning to the Internet to seek information that is important to their lives. However, there are very few interactive online Christian communities. Atheists have become very aggressive online and the message of our Savior is being ignored or discredited by the media. Yet there are thousands and thousands of people that are searching for exactly what a Christian life can provide for them, but they don't know how to find it.

The news media always focuses on the worst side of Chritianity - the judgemental Bible-beaters that run around condemning anyone and everyone that does not listen to their screeching sermons and doomsday proselitizing.

Over the last five years, Atheism has DOUBLE in this country. People that identify themselves with a church has DECREASED by 20%. The flow of minds away from faith is greater than those coming to faith. CR may be growing by leaps and bounds, but the world as a whole is sliding farther and farther from Christianity. Islamn is taking over Europe right now.

I saw a news report that deduced the decrease in Christianity or those that identify with Christianity had a lot to do with sloppy and unfocused leadership. The Catholic Church, headed by Pope Benedict XVI almost seems invisible in our world today. Pope Bendict XVI is an evagelical wallflower. He's an intelligent and demure man, but not very inspirational.

In the Protestant/Christian camp, many great, highly visible leaders have fallen. Some to scandal, others have passed on to their final reward. We, as Christians, have very few, true inspirational leaders and Joel Osteen's Prosperity Gospel isn't substantive enough for those that really want to live a Christian lifestyle.

This site is registered with Google's search engine and is listed as one of their sites. Over time, content will grow on this site and it will be found by seekers, worldwide. I know this for a fact. I have built 70+ blog sites since March 11, 2009. There are keywords I tested in Google that relate to a few of my sites. On one of my sites, if you can remember the name of the site, but not the web address and you type it into Google, the entire first page that comes up in the search is ME. I did that in just over three weeks. So I know producing content will create more chances of being found. I also know a few tricks that I can share with our authors.

I created this site on Easter Sunday - from zero to its current content. I am a prolific writer and I'm well aware of the talents God has given me and I plan on using them to the fullest to help people find Christ.

On Good Friday, working from 7 pm on Friday continuously until noon on Saturday, I created a companion site about prayer called, Prayers For Today, which you can access through the sidebar of this site.

On the blog network produced by Amazon, on the Christian Community site,, I have been producing a daily feature called Proverb A Day. Also accessible through the sidebar.

For a year, I have wanted to take the 31 chapters of Proverbs and read a chapter a day, coinciding with the date of the month. Life's distractions kept steering me away from my goal. So when I began blogging in March, I created a Username: youRloved on the site and began blogging Proverbs. Creating the blog created a sense of obligation or duty on my part to continue what I started, and with a few exceptions and a recent break, I have been relatively consistant at analyzing a single verse each day from the Book of Proverbs, and I'm starting to develop a following. A feed from that site is also in the sidebar on this site.

Many of my other sites will have links to these two sites, providing pathways for seekers to find us. In fact, part of my Intenet marketing strategy is to interconnect a massive network of self-produced content that creates links from one site to the next, all created by me.

As traffic grows on my business site, retail site or any of my information and education blogs, more people will come here. So I'm preparing for a big crowd some day.

Since the global Christian community is losing its highly visible voices, we need to think exactly like the first Christians. They didn't have TV or podcasts or billboards, they had voices. They planted the early seeds of Christianity one soul at a time. Christianity was born and raised from humble grassroots efforts by believers. My attitude is that we need to turn back the clock and become more like the early Christians and do whatever our talents allow us to do and become foot-soldiers in the war against our faith. But we need to do it the way Jesus did, in a loving and gentle tone.

If hard-line Bible theology is your bailiwick, you don't need to be here. Or maybe you do... and you could learn something about Love one another and move away from Judge one another.

My dream will be realized the day that we receive an email or a post or a call that says, "Thank you for helping me find Jesus."

So I challenge you, for that is what Christ did - challenged us. And He continues to do it today. He challenges us every day through The Word to be different, to be better, to give and serve more.

You may not have any idea how you can contribute to this community, right now. I'd suggest you click on the button in the sidebar right after you read this post and become a Follower of this site. You may also want to subscribe to the RSS feed. Then, just hang out.

Give some thought to becoming an author, which will give you privileges to create posts, rather than just provide comments to posts.

Tell others at CR and in your lives outside of CR about this site. In the sidebar, you'll find a link that will show you ways to share this site, our companion site and Proverb A day. Easy to email or tweet (for you twitter users) compressed URL's are provided. If all you do is help someone get to any of these sites, you will have introduced them to an extension of The Word, a glorious community of Christians in Las Vegas, and a place to petition the LORD online and maybe have others join them in prayer.

You have to think about and find what it is you can "D" from WWJD.

Bless you... and my the Grace of our LORD Jesus Christ be with you always.

In love and action,

Roger Blazic

Author's Note: I purposely did not provide links to other content in this post because I did not want those of you that share ADD with me to be off somewhere else and miss the message. However, everything mentioned in this post is available at some point in the sidebar on this site.

This site was conceived and produced by one person. However, the vision of this site encompasses and requires many people.

When this site was launched, only one person could creates posts, all others could only post comments.

The Blogger platform that this site was built on has the capacity to have up to 100 authors. So we have plenty of room to grow.

Authors must have a gmail account through Google. (At the bottom of this post, a link is provided to take you to the Google gmail page.) They don't need to use the gmail account, they only need the account Username (a gmail email address) and a password. Once you have the gmail account info, you never have to go back to it again, unless you want to use the services related to gmail.

For this site to reach its potential, it will need more than one, two or three authors. The more, the better. So we want your fingers - and your thoughts and ideas.

To become an author, you have to be invited. To be invited you have to email the site administrator. There are a few requirements to be an author, and they're simple:

Authorship Requirements
  • You MUST be a Christian or are contemplating beginning a life followin Christ - You don't necessarily HAVE to attend CR, but it will help. We limit this site to Christians or people that are thinking about becoming a Christian because this site's purpose is not to debate religion, it is here to serve, just as Christ did.
  • You must be willing to post at least once a month - if we reach capacity on authors, we would like to reserve the right to authorship to those that contribute. If you are not contributing at least once a month, we reserve the right to give your slot to someone that is called to contribute more often.
  • You will need to learn and follow the Labeling system for posts to maintain easy access for visitors to posted information and keep the menu of post Labels from becoming 100 feet long
NOTE: The site administrator reserves the right to revoke authorship privileges from anyone that tries to turn this site into a public debate on Christianity or religious belief, makes continuous sales pitches in posts, uses profanity in their posts or does not treat others in a Christlike fashion. Love one another and you won't have a problem.

Applying for Authorship

Applying for Authorship is easy. Send an email to:
You should receive an auto-responder message telling you what to expect next. If you do not receive the auto-responder message, check the email and try sending it again. If you're still having problems, call the site administrator, Roger Blazic at: 702-531-4588

In your application email, please include the following:
  • Full Name
  • A primary email address for contact purposes
  • State if you attend Canyon Ridge and for how long
  • If you do not attend Canyon Ridge, please provide the name of the church you do attend, and its location if it is outside of Las Vegas, NV
  • (Optional) phone number

Gmail Account Required

Don't forget, you will need a gmail account to be able to sign in and post to the site. If you would like, the site administrator can provide you with a gmail account through the company that produces this site. You would receive an email that would be: YOURNAME (or a Username you choose) - so it would look like this:

When your email is setup, you will receive an email notification at an email you provide and a computer generated password. You will need to sign into your gmail account to activate it, and you can change the password, which will completely privatize your gmail account. At that point you can do what you want with the email address. You can use gmail, Google Calendar or any of the other services Google offers gmail users.

If at some point you would like to cancel the account, email the site administrator at: and request for the account to be closed. The account will be deleted from the database within a week after your request.

Post via Email

If you are thinking about applying for authorship, but are a concerned about having to log into the site to make your posts. This site is setup for authors to be able to post direct from email.

You will be given a special email address that you would place in your contact/address book. Give the contact a first name like FRIENDS, enter the email address, then save.

If you have a thought or a picture you want to share, even a video, you can attach it to an email and send it to the site for posting. We review email submissions before posting them to the site because occassionally we have formating issues or some emails come with long signatures, disclaimers or blinking avatars and cartoons. Non-essential information will be edited from email submissions and then they will be posted to the site. This could take a few minutes to a few days, depending on when the site administrator can get to the email editor.

Posting to this site is simple and easy. Use the method that works best for you.

Friends of Canyon Ridge - Concept Created

I'm interested in developing a blog that serves members and friends of Canyon Ridge Christian Community in Las Vegas.

More to come.
