Welcome to Ask Wordy Gertie! I’m glad you’re here.
So in case you skipped reading the tag line and you don’t have any plans to pore over the “About” page, here’s the gist of what you’ll find here:
You ask questions about Mormons, I answer them.
Wow, that was probably the most concise I’ve ever been…
But seriously, that’s kind of all there is to it. I know a lot of people think Mormons are kind of weird (trust me, I was a NON-Mormon for a majority of my life) and may be slightly curious about the whole thing. What better forum than an anonymous, unbiased, pressure-free venue for asking ANYTHING you want about this pretty misunderstood religion?
I don’t think there is one (but obviously, I’m partial) 🙂
I’m also hoping this will serve as a place for constructive dialogue between Mormons and non-Mormons, Mormons and other Mormons, and well…anyone that’s interested regardless of background. Open (and respectful) discussion is encouraged.
Annnnnd since this is the VERY FIRST post, I’ll help you get acquainted with the site a bit.
Clicking on the menu bar in the upper right-hand corner of the screen will take you to a few static pages–feel free to peruse if you want to learn a bit more about me and how/why Ask Wordy Gertie came about (the long and stanky version as opposed to this quick and dirty one…)
You’ll also find a contact page for asking all of your awesome and intelligent questions. Feel free to use the form, or go ahead and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be checking mail daily and posting regularly (yes, I know, “regularly” is intentionally vague…but life happens and I’m something of a commitment-phobe; so let’s say at least weekly, shall we???).
Social media buttons (Facebook and Twitter) are at the bottom of the page if you’d like to stay connected that way.
Glad you stopped by. Talk to you soon.
