Five Crucial Mistakes Most Bloggers Make (and how to avoid them!)

We bloggers have become lazy. Even in our ever-growing pursuit for followers and views, we have decided that some pieces of blogging are beneath us. And so, in our passivity, we have neglected key parts of our blogs and the posts therein. This has resulted in a lack of blog quality and a lowering of standards. But, if we work hard and learn from our failures, we can overcome the failures of our past and turn the Christian blogging community into a high-quality writing niche.

The Identity of the Christian Blogger

I spoke on this last week. Citing something similar to a Lecrae quote, I said, “You aren’t a Christian blogger if you aren’t blogging about Christ.” This remains true.

Of course, if you are a Christian, this doesn’t immediately label you a Christian blogger. Being a Christian blogger is about stance- who you are, what you write, and what you stand for all matter in your category.

“But why have a category at all? Why can’t I just blog?” You’re probably asking. Well, here’s the problem- if you don’t have a category, it’ll be almost impossible to stand for something without your readers asking why. This is one of the reasons that WordPress has you enter your website’s category. Not only does it give your readers a sense of preparation for your posts, but it also makes you easier to find and gives you a niche.

Reddit for Christian Bloggers- Please Reblog

Africa Boy

Hey guys! Today, I get to make an exciting announcement: the popular website Reddit now has a subreddit dedicated entirely to Christian bloggers!

Now, you may be asking, “What is Reddit? How does this apply to me?” If you’re a Christian blogger, it applies to you.

For the last three months, a question has haunted me. “How could I gather a group of Christian bloggers into one place, allowing us to communicate and learn from each other?” For a while, I considered Google Hangouts or Discord. Then, I realized these were too personal. We need a place that is more….professional. Finally, I have found my answer- Reddit.

If you don’t know what Reddit is, you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade. Reddit is a website that qualifies as social media. Basically, it’s a massive discussion board, with “subreddits” for everything. A subreddit is more specific. For instance, if you wanted to read discussions about monkies, you would probably look at a /monkies subreddit. In our case, it’s the /christian_bloggers subreddit.

If you’re a Christian blogger, you need to join. You can create an account and join the subreddit for free. If you’re worried about notifications bothering you, they can be turned off under your profile. Finally, if you wish to have anonymity, you can always change your name.

The benefits of joining this subreddit are huge. You have a way to learn about blogging, bring attention to your posts, and interact with a few friends and fellow bloggers online. This community will be invaluable for your learning experience as a blogger, and I highly recommend that you join as soon as possible.

Now, because this subreddit is new, we need to get the word out. Few people are going to see the subreddit, let alone join unless we take a little action. So, if it’s not too much trouble, please click the Reblog button below this post. There are actually a few benefits to doing so. Not only will this give you content for the day (and who doesn’t like free content?), but you will, through this post, be asking others to reblog it, driving more traffic back to your site. If you can’t join Reddit for one reason or another, at least be sure to reblog this, allowing others the opportunity to join.

Guys, this is huge. You may not realize it, but there are some serious advantages to joining. Please join this movement! You can find the link by clicking here or clicking the one provided below. It only takes a few seconds to create an account and join, so don’t hesitate!

Alright, thanks for reading, and I hope you have at least considered joining the group. Your support and comments mean a ton to me! If you haven’t already, be sure to click that Follow button, so as to not miss out on any new posts. Thanks, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
