Blogging Year in Review 2009

Posted by on Dec 31, 2009 in blog links | Comments Off

I have been blogging for almost four years (my fourth blogiversary will be in March 2010). I still enjoy it, primarily because of the interaction that this blog brings into my life – both from readers and from people I know IRL (in real life).

These are the most read posts that I published in 2009:

  1. A Megachurch in Jerusalem? (September 2009)
  2. Sermon Central (June 2009)
  3. The Church in the New Testament (September 2009)
  4. A huge problem with ‘house church’ (July 2009)
  5. Jesus was not a very good evangelist (July 2009)
  6. In Theory (August 2009)
  7. What makes a meal the Lord’s Supper? (January 2009)
  8. Recognizing Elders (July 2009)
  9. 1 Corinthians 14:26ff – normal or particular? (July 2009)
  10. The Third Greatest Commandment (January 2009)

You may wonder, as I did at first, why 8 out of the top 10 most read blog posts were published in the second half of the 2009. Well, in the Summer, I began to publish links to my blog posts in Facebook. Facebook quickly became my number one referrer.

There are also a few older posts that continue to get alot of traffic primarily driven by search engines:

It looks like 2007 was a very good year for me. Actually, during that time, I wrote several posts about leadership, elders, and pastors. Leadership posts also attract alot of readers.

Anyway, once again, I greatly enjoy blogging, mainly because of you, my readers. So, thank you for reading and commenting! And, have a great New Year!
