I often get asked, what type of blogs do I follow? As part of my effort to stay in touch while living outside of the states, I try and follow as many blogs as possible. I believe that it is important to be consuming quality ministry content that I can put into use right away. These blogs are quality and are some of my favorite blogs.
I love blogs. I love finding great content to read on a daily basis. Today I wanted to share a few links from my Google Reader, that I read on a daily basis. These sites range from christian leadership, to online marketing, to web development. So there should be something for everyone!
If you have a good blog you want to share, please let me know in the comments!
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!
I am going to start sharing with you all more from my Google reader. I currently have 67 christian blogs the I subscribe to. These blogs vary in content, each hitting a different area of industry, ministry, or technology. Each week, I hope to share with you one person’s blog you should subscribe to or at least take a look at. This week I am happy to share with you what is currently my favorite blog. keep reading after the jump to see who it is!
I love blogs! I love that all the content I want is sent to me so I can read it on my time. I enjoy every morning that I get to sip a nice cup of coffee and read all the blogs I subscribe to. Today I wanted to share part of my list with you. If you want to dive deeper into the minds of some of the most innovative or knowledgeable pastors in America, then this list is for you. Each of these blogs are updated on a regular basis. They all provide good resources, relevant content, and will challenge you. I hope you add all these Pastors to your blog lists!
