Blogs Month at OurChurch.Com

February is Blogs Month at OurChurch.Com.  A blog is one of the best ways to attract new visitors and links to your website. So, all this month we’re focusing on helping businesses, ministries, and individuals develop, improve, and promote blogs.  We’ll be blogging about bloging and doing some extra things here on the Christian Web Trends blog including the celebration of its first birthday.  In this article…

  • Christian Web Trends survey
  • Blogs discussion
  • Do you blog?
  • Christian Web Trends Award

Your Opinion Matters
Because Christian Web Trends has been online for about a year now, we thought this would be a great time to get your feedback.  Please complete the survey and share your opinion as to how we’re doing and what we could do to make this blog better in the future.

We’ll post the results later in the month.

Blogs Discussion
We’ve started a discussion in our forums on blogs so we can hear more about what you need to start, improve, or promote your blog and to exchange blogging ideas. What are the biggest challenges you face? What do you write about or want to write about? What insight do you have to share with other bloggers?  If you’re interested in learning more about blogging or interested in helping other people become better bloggers, check out the Blogs Discussion in the OurChurch.Com Christian Forums.

Do you blog?
If you blog and host a website at OurChurch.Com, send the name of your blog, a link to your blog, and a link to your OCC website, and we will post a link to it on the Blogs Month page and include a link in our monthly webmaster newsletter.  Please send that info to our help desk.  If you blog but don’t host a website at OCC, you’re not eligible for a link on Blogs Month page or webmaster newsletter, but we will give you a chance to tell all our readers about your blog later this month, so stay tuned.

Christian Web Trends Awards
