-The Rewards of Blogging Holidays and Special Events

Holidays present a number of unique opportunities for ministry blogging but also can bring on quite a few scheduling problems with added church and family commitments. Sometimes it is a balancing act.

Nevertheless, I have found that around Christmas time folks are looking for posts telling the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus. Then around Easter, articles about the Resurrection are very popular.

A couple of weeks ago I put up an article on one of my blogs about the ministry of St. Patrick while green beer was flowing and folks were eating the traditional corned beef and cabbage. The traffic on that one was marvelous.

Usually these special articles bring new visitors to my blogs and a definite increase in traffic. This is particularly so during the Christmas and Easter season.

Today-Good Friday, I put up a relevant post from my Apologetica blog archives:

“It’s Friday, But Sunday’s Coming” 

It went viral and produced the best day ever for that site with over 15 times the usual traffic. Plus the day is not even over yet. I have also found in the past that good articles on the Resurrection of Jesus do exceptionally well on Easter Sunday.

These special times present us with unique opportunities to share the Christian message with folks that normally do not visit Christian sites. To make use of those opportunities and yet have plenty of time for family and church activities, I usually write the posts way ahead of time or link to good archived articles from the past, or at the very least provide links to the best relevant Christian posts and articles that I can find.            *Top
