This is the third year I’ve run “blog madness” competitions in March, and they are still amazing.
Both generate excitement and attention in the blog niche they serve. Plus they push solid traffic back to the blogs that participate. It’s a win-win.
The competition on SBC Voices is a little tired because that blog has declined over the last year. But the Ministry To Children version has surprised me, especially the level of traffic coming from Facebook.
On the technical side, I’m running one from a Poll Daddy plugin and the other from WP-polls. They both work well, but I went with Poll Daddy because I didn’t want the extra tables on my Ministry To Children database.
While I’m throwing out links, I always wanted to mention the Christian Ad Network I’ve joined called “Beacon Ads.” I’m really pleased with their server speed and client base. It helps to have an extra income stream.
On the video front, my channel on YouTube has done well. I’m up to 50 videos and most are being discovered. The best part is the added connection with readers. Here is the most popular one about children’s ministry.
