Greetings, Dear Writerpreneur,
I pray that you are well.
Welcome to another Empowering Post, where I teach Christian Authors like you why it's important to treat your authorship as a business.
Today, I continue in my series, which relates to blogging. As you have come to learn or will learn, your blog is the most powerful and effective content marketing tool you have as an author.
This blog series provides you a segment of my latest resource, The EWP Manual for the Christian Blogger, which I know will impact your marketing plan in more ways that you realize. (You can read another post on this topic here.)
For today's post, I want to share some statistics with you about blogging. I know that many people become bloggers for personal reasons; and for the most part, they use this venue to share information about themselves.
Not many are concerned with using this resource as a method for helping them make money. And that's perfectly fine for them.
But for you as a writerpreneur, I need to shift your mindset.
Everything that you do from this point on as a Christian Author must point back to your mission and vision for your publishing career. You have to remember that you're in business for yourself.
You are a writer AND an entrepreneur, and as such, it becomes paramount that you discover ways of using certain tools and resources to help you reach the people who matter most to your writing ministry.
And if you want to become a full-time Christian Author, then you must put in the work it takes to create multiple streams of income. One of the best resources for making this possible is by creating a blog that meets the needs of your readers.
Conducting Blog Research
In a moment, I will share with you pertinent statistics regarding blogging. But before I jump into that, let me share with you why conducting research related to the blogosphere and your blog is so important.
Two of my lessons in the Empowered Writerpreneurs Program focus heavily on research for one's business plan and research for one's books. It's important that before any Christian Author attempts to build a thriving publishing career, that he must first be willing to learn what others know. He must be concerned about providing the best content for his audience. He must be willing to conduct research so that he builds trust, credibility, and authority with his works.
He can't make this happen without research. He can try, but his work won't stand the test of time.
The same principle applies to blogging.
Just imagine how frustrating it would be to read through all my blog posts, only to discover that I made up everything I wrote. You wouldn't trust me, and neither would others.
However, because I provide research-based content to you on a consistent basis, you come to trust my knowledge because it's supported by others who are in the same industry.
Research has the power to make this happen for you as a Christian Author.
When thinking about how you can employ blogging as a marketing tool for your writing career, you want to research what's happening within the blogosphere so that you can make informed decisions.
You can determine best practices within the industry by conducting research; you can find out how to rank higher in search engines when you conduct research; you can learn how much to write for each blog post when you conduct research.
All your answers regarding the business of blogging can be traced back to research. And I want to share with you some facts that will inspire you to continue on this journey.

If you're wondering how to cultivate your own brand and blog for your writing ministry, I want to challenge you today to take the next steps in this process.
Reading my public blog can help spark ideas for your authorship, but it won't teach you how to implement unique strategies for your brand. That's where my school and advanced reading materials come into play.

As the leader and host, I maintain an educational environment, meaning no one is in competition with each other. Each one is learning from my teachings and support, and then branching their own writing career based on the lessons they acquire.
Step 2: Get Trained
The majority of new and aspiring Christian Authors assume that because God gave them the vision to write a book, then it's up to God to put everything together. They fail to realize that the success of their ministry is based on their training.
There are five pillars that Christian Authors generally lack:
And without them, these writers are destined to fail.
