Become a Guest Blogger

Do you have a strong interest in seeing Christians using Internet technology to advance their churches, schools, ministries, and personal lives? Do you have a unique perspective and opinion? Have you thought about blogging but don’t know how to start?  Or started a blog that’s not getting many readers?

Becoming a guest blogger on the Christian Web Trends blog may be just the opportunity you’ve been looking for.  OurChurch.Com is looking for insightful, tech-savvy Christ-followers to share their unique perspective with CWT readers.  Benefits include:

  • Distribution to @OurChurchDotCom‘s 10,000+ Twitter followers.
  • Distribution to our 2,000+ Facebook fans
  • Distribution to several hundred additional RSS subscribers.
  • A one sentence “About the Author” section at the bottom of each article including a link to the author’s website, which will bring new visitors and possibly improved search rankings.
  • The opportunity to educate and encourage ministry leaders.

If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to take advantage of, please register a username and complete your profile.  When you register, you’ll automatically be given access to CTW as a “contributor” which means you can login and post articles for consideration.  OCC staff will review all articles submitted and those that meet the guidelines and are approved will be published at a future date.

Guidelines

  • Articles must be original, not posted elsewhere on the web, and not simply restating information or opinions already available elsewhere.
  • Articles must be relevant to the application of Internet technology to ministry.
  • Articles must be well written. Good grammar, spelling and punctuation are essential.
  • For the best chance of getting published, include these 7 Essential Ingredients for Cooking Up Mouth-Watering Blog Posts
  • Guest bloggers must be Christian and agree with OCC’s statement of faith.
  • If you’re post is related to something your company or ministry does, you’re welcome to mention you’re organization and include a link once in the post. If you’d like to post a press release or post that is all about your organization, please contact us about doing a Sponsored Post.

Additional Details

  • OCC will not edit articles.  We’ll either publish them as is or not at all.
  • After we review an article, we will let the author know whether it has been approved or not and if approved an estimated date of publication.
  • If an article is not approved, the author is welcome to publish it elsewhere.
  • There’s no commitment or limit to the number of articles one can submit.  Submit one article or one a week.

Lots of bloggers have gotten their start as a guest blogger on an established blog.  Maybe this is your chance.  Or maybe every once in a while you’ve got a ministry/tech insight you just want to share.  If you have any questions, please send them to our help desk.
