As of March 1, 2024, we are officially five months into our Bible Blog project. What is that project, you ask? Simple. Take a brand new blog on a new domain and get it to 20,000 monthly visits inside of a year. (If you’re interested, you can read the full write-up here.) Do I think […]
I learned something new the other day: Google hates me. Well, not me per se, but definitely my website that I’ve been working on. If you’ve followed along with this blog, you know that in October I launched the Bible Blog Project. Basically, it’s Bible-based blog (super original, I know) that I started completely from
Websites have come a long way over the last 20 years. It used to be that you could simply write a lot of content on your website, and a few weeks later, portions of it would start ranking on search engines. It was a lot like the Wild West in those days. Very few rules,
If you remember, at the beginning of October I started a bold project: Get a brand new website to 20,000 visitors a month in one year.

For a lot of new bloggers, frequency is usually one of the biggest question marks they have. How often should I blog? Should I schedule posts? Should I drop them all whenever they’re ready? Will the world explode if I stop posting at the same time every week? Fortunately, here’s the truth about blogging frequency:
I love me some fried chicken. If you stick a plate of fried chicken in front of me with some creamy mashed potatoes, fried okra, and white gravy — along with a side of Dr. Pepper — I promise you that plate will be gone in less than ten minutes. Five minutes…if it’s lunch time.
Here’s something you already know: Human bodies need blood to survive. God even talks about this in Scripture when He tells the Israelites that “the life is in the blood” (Leviticus 17:11). Using modern science, we know that the circulatory system carries oxygen to all parts of the body, fueling the muscles and helping your
Writing for the internet is a lot different than knowing how to write in general. There are different rules because it’s a different audience, even if they wear the same type of clothes. Online readers are used to reading in bursts. With so much material available online – around seven million new blog posts are published every day
