As a Christian bloggers, we want to do our best to honor God and His Word in all that we write, say, and do. Yes?
Yet there is this tension in faith blogging between worrying about pleasing God rather than man and becoming a successful blogger.
If you are a Christian blogger, I’m sure you’ve felt it.
You don’t want to be a sell-out.
You’re not in it for the money but for the message.
Thus, your definition of “success” varies greatly from the typical blogger who is mostly concerned with building a blog that is successful according to the world’s means.
At the same, we cannot reach others with the message unless we learn how to make the best use of our blogs and social media outlets.
How can you best set your light on the lampstand so that it can shine before men without letting pride take over?
How can you use best blogging practices for His glory without becoming consumed by numbers and your own small fame?
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Mt. 5:14-16 (NASB)
It’s not an easy balance to achieve, is it?
We want to do our best to get the message out there, yet we know that numbers and dollars are not our best measure of success, not as Christian Bloggers.
It reminds me of that whole be in the world but not of the world dynamic that applies to so much of Christian life.
Well, today I offer you some practical help and hope for achieving this balance, friends! I know some of you are waiting anxiously for the re-opening of Christian Bloggers Bootcamp by missionary and author Arabah Joy because you’ve heard about it from other like-minded bloggers.
Why recommend this course above all others?
Because I know Arabah Joy personally.
She has become a mentor to me, not just in my writing, but also in my spiritual life. Her faith is real, folks, and that’s what I admire most about her.
Because I know her heart for God’s message and her desire to spread the influence of other Christian bloggers, I have learned that I can trust her advice!
“We live in a dark world. As a follower of Christ, I consider it not only a joy but a duty to invest in other Christian bloggers whose effectiveness would dramatically increase by learning the key things I have learned.” ~ Arabah Joy
Working together with Arabah and a close group of other Christian bloggers has helped me to increase page views by 40 percent so far.
Thus far I have only implemented part of Arabah’s Pinterest strategy for Christian bloggers and some of her Facebook wisdom, and already I’m seeing significant growth, not only in pageviews, but also in followers on both platforms and this blog.
I’m excited to see the snowball effect that implementing just a few key strategies for Christian bloggers has already created, and I can’t begin to imagine what the full effect will be once I work through the modules.
Now I want to learn more!
So, I highly recommend to you Arabah Joy’s Christian Bloggers Bootcamp, which is now open for registration!
Arabah understands the balance required by faith-blogging and she also understands that many typical blogging tips just don’t fit our unique niche.
Christian Bloggers need strategies that fit the nature of our subject!

UPDATE** I have to tell you all that I failed to realize the value of this facebook group at first. Aside from the excellent content within the course itself, the Christian Bloggers Bootcamp facebook page is my favorite feature. I know anytime I have a question, whether practical or ethical in nature, I can come to this group of ladies and know that they are approaching blogging as a ministry in the same way I am. That means I can more readily trust their advice to lead me in ways that are God-honoring rather than self-promoting. Additionally, because of their faith, they are eager to share tried and true techniques and eager to help one another. This group alone makes the course worth the financial investment, in my opinion!
