No One is Reading Your Pastor’s Blog

Talk to most church website compaines and they will tell you that your pastors should be blogging. That it will connect your congregation with your pastor, give them the inside view of what your pastor is thinking and feels about theology. Well, I am here to tell you that no one cares right now and you need to change the way you think about having your pastors blog.

Your blog is always, always, ALWAYS out dated.
This is probably the largest turn off for most potential readers of your blog. Most pastors I have seen, post one or two things, then forget that they even have a blog. This is not a good blogging strategy. Blogging and building a sense of community takes time. You need to focus on creating content on a regular basis, a few times a week is a good pace, it doesn’t need to be every day. Blogging is a big time commitment and pastors are busy people, so if they cannot commit to blogging regularly, then don’t have them attempt it!

Your pastor is easily offended.
Blog posts live forever. People can make comments and talk about blog posts. If your pastor can be easily offended by the criticism his/her blog generates, it might be a good idea to not have that pastor blog. Or at the very least, turn off the comments of the blog. But that is more like having a one sided conversation than a blog.

Your pastor can get angry.
Some pastors get offended, so skip that and go right to angry. Hey God gave us that ability, and it can be justified, but a blog is probably not the best place for your pastors anger. Nothing like having your angry comments live in Google’s archive forever for news reporters to reference when writing a story about your church.

But everyone is doing it.
Yeah, they are. That’s the problem. Churches and Pastors are not thinking about why should they blog. It takes time, persistence, knowledge, expertise, and a strategy to execute. If you can do these things, you should start to see more comments, more people visiting, and engaging your blog. If you can’t commit to these things, please do the internet a favor, don’t start a blog.

This is so true, every point. What we try to tell people who use our Church CMS is to get a bunch of entries ready, then set the post date of the blog entry to some date in the future…leaking them out over time.

I think that we stopped and restarted our blog several times over years…then we finally took our own advice. At first, we were only posting every other Monday. To be perfect honest, it felt kinda lame. Much like working out for the first time after a couple year sabbatical. But the persistance paid off. We are now posting once a week and have content for the next 5 months already ready!

According to the statistics from our web host, we have the opposite problem… our Pastors’ blog feeds got over 4,000 views in January. We are not a Mega-church, we have about 1,000 members, so I have no idea what to make of that. We do have the problem of getting the pastors to write their blogs – we only had one during month of December and one during January. I would love to hear from anyone who could shed some light on this.

@Judy

That’s very interesting. Are you running Google Analytics or is it your web host stats?

I would also be curious where the traffic is coming from. Sometimes, if your pastor posted something that made it’s way up to the front page of Google for a popular keyword, that will send a lot of traffic. For example, we get a lot of traffic for “best church websites”.

If you’re not using Google Analytics, I would highly recommend setting that up, the amount of information you can see is amazing.

Pastors who get angry easily if someone passes them a note or makes a “critical”comment on his sermon,or pics on a certain comment in a note passed on to him,out to remember that therethere are many church goers(children of God)who have been hurt by other pastors,who for some reason or other,elevate themselves above the pew warmer,and think that they are one step higher,or better,merely because they have been “ordained”to preach,and collect funds for the church.Telling a pastor to repent,is Ive found out,a conflicting issue.Thomas..Durban..SA.
