Am I allowed to have a good moan?
Yes why not after all it is my blog.
I am feeling frustrated by Christians who can’t read. Or is it simply that they do not bother.
On our web site Christian House Sitters we clearly explain what is involved in joining. This is explained on the home page where it says that House Owners can (at the moment) join free of charge but house sitters are charged an annual membership fee of just £20.
We go on to explain that proceeds go to support Christian work in South Africa.
We also say ‘before joining please read the FAQ page’. On that page we once again explain the costs etc.
Then when they click on the register tab and get to the registration page we once again explain the costs and procedure.
Yet every day I have someone joining as a sitter but ‘forgetting’ to pay’. When I email them they normally respond by saying ‘oh sorry I did not realise there was a charge’
Help. How can I make it clearer.
I really wish we could do it all free of charge but the web site costs money and part of our reason for existing is to raise money for Unsung Heroes a Christian ministry in South Africa. (See a previous post).
They are after all getting the opportunity of a free holiday by becoming a registered house sitter.
Enough. No more moaning. I just felt the need to get that lot off my chest.
