Youth ministry blogging is not popular

Tech guy versus youth ministry blogAlmost two weeks ago I did a little experiment. I realize blogging about youth ministry addresses a very small minority of web users and was interested to see the difference that a techy blog entry might have as far as generating site traffic. So, I wrote a little “how to” on correcting misspelled words added to Firefox 2.0, a problem I’ve experienced several times myself. I’m amazed at the results.

In two weeks time, that page has over 1,000 unique hits and is still gaining momentum like crazy! Conversely, my most popular youth ministry page of Free Youth Ministry Resources has only a little over 2,000 unique hits over the course of an entire year.

As Ben Gray recently posted, blogging ultimately comes down to passion and communicating that passion with others. That’s why I blog about youth ministry even if it’s not very popular.
