Starting a blog can be tough when you factor in family, managing a household and keeping up with the day-to-day, but adding your faith in the mix adds another layer of questions and struggles. Can I make money on my blog and it still be faith-based? If I'm a Christian but want to write about DIY stuff how do I incorporate Jesus into my blog? This series (also available as ebook with sub) is a great tool for beginning bloggers to start their blogs off on the right foot.

Jesus Blogger – 31 Days of Blogging Like Jesus Would

Jesus Blogger, comes out of a strong desire to allow Jesus to infiltrate every aspect of my life, especially my writing career. I started blogging on and off in 2007, but got really serious after the birth of my fifth child in 2012. Today, I’m a homeschooling mom of six, so doing ANYTHING is a challenge…especially sitting in front of the computer. It’s like my children have a radar that goes off as soon as my butt hits the black pleather chair that says, “Mommy’s on the computer…let’s go need something.”

I don’t want my kids’ childhoods to be filled with memories of begging their mom to get off her blog and take them to the park. So when Ruth Soukup’s book How to Blog for Profit without Selling Your Soul* came out, I snatched it up in a jiffy. It’s an amazing book that I recommend 100% and her information did help me become more organized so I could spend my time wisely. It was a start, but I really still wanted…I don’t know…something more spiritual. Something that would tackle the issues of my heart like:

  • Does God want me to blog?
  • Is it okay to make money on a Christian blog?
  • How do I balance putting my faith in God to grow my blog while still understanding my part in the marketing aspect of blogging?
  • How to incorporate promotion (ie. having sponsored posts about products) while staying true to my beliefs?

Since I was a little girl (from the 2nd grade onward) I knew I was going to be a writer, and now that I am one, I desperately want to honor God with my words and actions. I don’t know if I’ll get answers to ALL my questions, but I figured I would look at the book of Matthew (which has 28 chapters) and study Jesus’ life and ministry to see if I could get any insight to my questions.

So, if you are like me, join me on my 31-day journey to becoming a Jesus Blogger!
