The seedling that is ediStories.com continues to develop in the background, the design purpose for ediStories.com will hopefully fulfill the biblical meaning of “edification”.

From the Holman Bible Dictionary
Edification
Literally “building up,” it approximates encouragement and consolation (1 Corinthians 14:3 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ), though with edification focus falls on the goal, defined as being established in faith (Colossians 2:7 ) or attaining unity of faith and knowledge, maturity, and the full measure of Christ (Ephesians 4:13 ). Edification is the special responsibility of the various church leaders (Ephesians 4:11-12 ) and is the legitimate context for the exercise of their authority (2 Corinthians 10:8 ; 2 Corinthians 13:10 ). The work of building up is, however, the work of all Christians (1 Thessalonians 5:11 ). Spiritual gifts are given for the edification of the Church. Of these gifts, those which involve speaking are especially important (Acts 20:32 ; 1 Corinthians 14:1 ; Ephesians 4:29 ). All elements of Christian worship should contribute to edification (1 Corinthians 14:26 ). Prophecy and instruction are especially important (1Corinthians 14:3,1 Corinthians 14:18-19 ). Edification is not all talk, however, but involves demonstrating love (1 Corinthians 8:1 ) and consideration for those weak in faith (Romans 15:1-2 ).
