Christian Lifestyle Blogs – The Benefits of Blogging

As a new blogger, I would see all these amazing bloggers and think “Wow, that’s a lot of work! I don’t think I have the talent for it!”

Or maybe you think blogging is just a waste of time!

Maybe when you think of blogging, the images you conjure up are probably similar to a teenager writing in their diary. You know, the usual, cliched kind of “today tanked because I missed my bus and then…” sort of thing!

The reality, however, is that a faith and lifestyle blog is an incredibly dynamic hobby/business, that can yield tremendous benefits for both your personal and your work life.

Here are just a few of the ways in which blogging can change your life and your ministry or business!

3 Ways a Faith and Lifestyle Blog Benefits You and Others

1. Blogging Can Develop Your Personal Brand

When it comes to your professional or ministry life, the “brand” that you cultivate for yourself will be of the utmost importance!

 You want people to easily identify you, your product, ministry or service! There are some great themes out there to help make it easy!

If you have a business that also has a blog you can open up doors to new customers in a brand new way!

You become the subject matter expert and then, when they need your type of product or service, they will think of you!

A blog on your business site gives you a platform with which you can address topics important to your niche market, engage with your audience, share your know-how, and do what you can in order to craft your brand via your own words.

In ministry many times you ARE the brand! You share your own personal stories, struggles, and victories and your audience comes to identify with you!

Bloggers want to be and SHOULD be identified as a subject matter expert! You can be that go-to person for problem solving!

Customers want a business that can help them solve a problem or meet a need! Identifying your your ideal audience can help you meet those needs!

A faith and lifestyle blog may not be business related at all but the same concept applies; people are coming to you because they have a problem and they want someone to identify with them if not directly help them.

For people of faith, Christian lifestyle blogs fit that bill and get more of Jesus online!

2. Christian Lifestyle Blogs Can Help YOU Along the Way As Well

One of the major benefits of blogging as it relates strictly to your personal life is the extent to which it enables you to more or less have a “conversation” with yourself.

Have you ever heard instructors in some particular discipline say something along the lines of “if you want to learn this stuff really well, try to teach it to someone else”? The basic idea behind this rule is that in order to communicate an idea clearly, you must first become very comfortable and familiar with it yourself.

Blogging can behave in much the same way.

Perhaps you’ve had some ups and downs in your personal fitness journey, and you aren’t really sure of what’s gone wrong. You may decide to write a blog post sharing your struggles and mulling over your experiences. 

This is where Christian lifestyle blogging comes in! It is a great way to explore and find your niche, while sharing aspects from various parts of life!

Maybe you have a struggle with your faith!

Blogging allows you to share that struggle and not only help someone else who may be going through the same, but you can also sometimes find the answer God is trying to convey to you just by “talking” it out!  That has happened to me many a time!

Blogging also allows your audience to comment on your posts and maybe share some wisdom with you when they have gone through similar struggles!

It can be a great tool for consolidating your thoughts and discovering more about God and yourself!

3. Christian Lifestyle Blogs Can Give You a Sense of Community

Say what you like, but we humans are naturally social creatures, and we basically want to participate in groups that reflect our interests.

These days, some of the biggest platforms for discussion exist on the internet and Christian bloggers take advantage of those platforms and use them to connect with other bloggers as well as with their followers!

Blogging on a topic that interests you can, therefore, be an effective way of exploring those interests, joining in with a wider discussion, and connecting with others who are engaged with the same topics.

For those of us who blog on faith-related topics, we form a sisterhood with our fellow bloggers and our audience that we may not find elsewhere.

Many times, our followers are isolated. They may not have fellow believers in their lives to share in their faith. They may not have people in their lives they can go to for prayer. Possibly they may live in a country where being a Christian is not accepted!

Christian lifestyle blogs, parenting blogs, ministry blogs, etc., can provide that community for them, as well as reaching people for Jesus in places all over the world who may not be able to hear the Word in their own communities!

Blogging breaks down walls and bridges the miles to reach people for Jesus!

That, to me, is the most important and most compelling reason to start a faith blogging journey!

So I ask again; are Christian bloggers wanted? Oh yes! So why not start writing and share what God has done in your life?

Other Benefits of a Faith and Lifestyle Blog

While we covered blogging as it pertains to everyone, professionals and hobbyists, there are other benefits to beginning a faith blog that are worth addressing.

Not every Christian chooses to monetize and that is a personal decision and one you should most definitely pray about. But blogging can open the door for you to earn an income.

Earning an income that helps support your blog if nothing else is beneficial. There are various ways to earn an income with Christian lifestyle blogs.

Ways to Earn an Income With a Faith and Lifestyle Blog

Ad Networks

You can earn an income by incorporating an ad network on your site. This is a great way to generate revenue because it really doesn't require you to do much work at all.

However, many ad networks require you to have a certain amount of traffic so be sure to see what their requirements are.

I highly recommend Mediavine as it is my own ad network, but again...be sure to check out the requirements of any network you consider.

Affiliate Marketing

If you have ever tried a product you loved and recommended it to a friend, you have basically done what is involved in affiliate marketing.

You simply find some great programs within your niche and share them with your audience. For doing so, the company pays you a commission without any cost to the customer!

You can find a list of over 200 affiliate programs for bloggers at Blogging Divas

This is when someone pays you to post about something (or place their post) on your site.

A review post might be an example, where they pay you to review their product.

Be sure to disclose the fact that it is a sponsored post on your site! You must always let your audience know that you have received compensation of any kind to write a post.

Creating and Selling Your Own Products

The best way to make money on your blog is to create products yourself and offer them to your followers.

Some people see this as being "salesy" but I can assure you, I have never gone to a blog where someone is selling a Bible study or a prayer journal and thought it was salesy.

Yes, sometimes emails can be salesy so be cautious about emailing your list that way. But if you just have an opt-in on your site for your product, that is not salesy at all in my opinion.

It comes down to intent. Are you doing it to provide value to your followers or just to make money?

  1. I really couldn’t have said it better myself.

    I’ve been surprised many times by what I’ve learned, probably more than I could articulate or list here. From the bloggy stuff like writing, behind-the-scenes tech stuff, and finding community I’ve come further than I thought possible, but then there’s all the rest I’ve learned.

    God’s shown up so many times when I’m struggling with fear, self-doubt, and all the things.

    I’ve learned I don’t have to be an expert to have a say: I have the right to speak about what I’m writing about because I’m walking through it. And I’ve learned that diving in is the best teacher. God has and is equipping me for the task He’s given me.

    Wow. I think you hit a button for me! God bless!

    1. Thank you so much Ashley!! I am so glad it resonated with you!! God is not only equipping you but using you in such powerful ways!! You are inspiring and encouraging so many people!!

  2. I love this idea of a link up. I’m just starting my blog and still trying to figure out the ins and outs of connecting. Maybe I’ll be here next week to link up!

  3. Don’t wanna say anything in connection with whatever was mentioned above..
    Just wanna share something as 1 sinner to all others.
    Maybe it speaks to ALLOT or just 1 specific person,that has a big / huge gift from God to safe souls/be a Disciple for Jesus.
    I’m an addict living in a country on this temporary/ fleshly format that has been given to us as a test to see who we REALLY chose to follow…
    Someone out there has an Amazing gift from God through Jesus to save many,many souls and this person is waiting for something…
    Before fulfilling their purpose here on earth!
    My question to you is ..

    .”how long do you wanna wait,for something that you allready have (all glory to GOD).”

    JESUS wants to use you ,and you will lose some things, but you will Gain so much more!


    1. Thank you Ben for such heartfelt encouragement. It is so appreciated and I’m sure will speak to people! Bless you!

  4. It’s been a long time I am wanting to create my own blog. I just don’t know how to kickstart everything. I have plenty of worries; Will I ever have readers? Is my blog going to be interesting and and will entice readers to subscribe or read some more? But then, with the challenges I encountered recently, it made me want to blog how hard it was and how God made me stronger to get through it and how he made his own ways and mediums reach me. I’m guessing sooner than expected I can publish my first ever blog! I’m inspired!

    1. I am so happy it inspired you to get started! You CAN do it! Definitely check out my resources page and look under Blogging. There are so many helpful resources there!

  5. Great article. I totally agree with your thoughts here. I love connecting with other bloggers and networking.

  6. Thank you for sharing this Diane.

    Some valuable lessons to be learned and I particularly like this – “if you want to learn this stuff really well, try to teach it to someone else”.

    It fits very well with the Great Commission and His call to each and every Christian to spread and share His life, in His glory and His word to the world until the end of age.

    Christianity is in decline so thank you for reminding us that Christians not only have a conviction to communicate but they also have a duty to spread His word and in doing so they are educating themselves, keeping His words alive and helping others.

    The great Commission called upon each and all to share in His work, in His glory and to ultimately share in His word.

    As Christians we each have a unique voice and individual perspective on our Christian faith and how we live our lives as we walk with Him. We should be sharing this more to help those who need it most.

    We have the technology at our fingertips to enable us to reach millions around the world with His word and our Christian experiences but very few Christians actually utilise that technology to help share His word.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and your encouragement! You are right…as Christians we need to share our faith more and I hope this encourages some to do just that! God bless!

  7. It is nice to see members of the Messianic Community stepping out and doing great things. I am a Messianic believer as well. I would love to see more of our presence online :). Thank you for sharing. If you have the time, I would love to hear more about your blogging journey and how it is working out for you. It is something that I am researching daily. It is hard to tell if it is really worth it or not.

    1. Sorry I got caught up in the excitement of another Jewish believer I forgot to reply to the rest of your comment lol
      I would love to chat with you and let you know more about my blogging journey. I also in the meantime have a bunch of different posts on the site that talk about blogging so you’re welcome to check those out as well but you can email me through the contact form and we can chat about it

  8. This is a great post without any doubt. Your article is valuable for me and also for others. Please keep it up with your great work. Good luck to the future and thanks for sharing this wonderful blog.

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate you visiting and for taking the time to leave some encouragement!!
