It’s that time of year again, when Kent Shaffer releases his list of top
100 200 church blogs. As Kent explains, this is a very tough list to compile because there are so many different kinds of blogs across the “church blogs” spectrum. I’m a “church” blogger, but also a tech, design, media, and ministry blogger. Others on the list are theology bloggers, humor bloggers, or are one part of a multi-author magazine-like blog.
Kent has an interesting algorithm that seems to address primarily the website itself and not so much the level of influence of the blogger behind the blog. Even though social metrics are absent from the equation, Kent does compile a Twitter list of almost all of them.
This year (as contrasted to last year) I made Kent’s list. And perhaps my blog (website) just barely outranks Acts29 according to Kent’s algorithm but I can’t imagine that I’m more influential in the online space than those guys. So take the listing with a grain of salt and squeeze it for all the value it is worth. Use it to find good reading material, great principles to
steal borrow, and potential connections to make.
