Write for Church Website Ideas

Church Website Ideas is on a mission: to inspire, to challenge, to support church web workers in their efforts to build, manage, and maintain awesome church websites. The site already contains articles, lists, and freebies from me, Grace McCrorie, and Jesse Orndorff, the website’s Founder and former Owner, penned and assembled to benefit the community.

I want to make Church Website Ideas even better. I know there are a lot of very talented designers out there, who have so much knowledge to offer the community. And, I want to feature YOUR content on the blog.

I’m looking for church website GURUS to write for Church Website Ideas. Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • A demonstrated passion for helping the online Church
  • Previous writing or blogging experience
  • Designers, web developers, pastors, church leaders, church staff, or church volunteers that can provide a unique point of view

In exchange, you’ll receive links and free advertisements for your products, services, or church.

So what type of articles am I looking for?

Successful guest articles are comprehensive, action-oriented posts that teach CWI readers about a particular aspect of working with church websites. Articles should be written in a simple, easy-to-read-and-follow style, as readers of CWI are mostly non-technical web workers. They are devoted caretakers of their church websites, looking for simple ideas and help to make their church websites AWESOME.

Post topics may include (but are not limited to): church web design, content creation, SEO, ministry web page design, church website architecture, image editing, sermon podcasting, web design process, productivity and time management help, website automation, web video, website security, and website analytics

Examples include:

  • Showing website trends with a showcase of sites.
  • Ideas, tips, and tricks (how to).
  • Link roundups and link lists to high quality church website and church web worker resources
  • Tutorials (video would be SWEET!).

How to Submit:

Submit your post in HTML or in a Word document with any image files (including attribution) attached separately. Please email your completed article to info [at] churchwebsiteideas [dot] com. If your article meets editorial standards and aligns with my content strategy, I will respond to let you know your article will be published. That process may take up to 2 weeks.
