Emerging Church and Web 2.0 in the Press

– Nice to see USA Today do a piece on the emerging church. Imago Dei in Portland OR is the church they landed on. Pastor Rick McKinley is a great guy. We hung out a few times in the early stages of Acts 29 – a network he used to help run. In fact, when i was in Portland a few weeks back Rick and I chatted for a long time. What i like about the USA Today article is the emphasis on downgrading and living a simpler lifestyle as part of their Christian witness.

– The latest edition of the Presbyterian Outlook focuses on Web 2.0 inside the Presbyterian church. Check out Rhett Smith talking about online communities and Adam Cleaveland writes on Blogging 101. Cleave’s blog is called Pomomusing and its one of the top emerging church blogs in the world. And I know there are many ways to measure blog success but if you measure one of those factors – permanent inbound links measured by Technorati – then Pomomusings beats both JesusCreed AND Tallskinnykiwi. Yeahhh!!!

    Adam’s blog is well-read (500+ rss readers according to feedburner), but his technorati stats are a bit misleading in that he’s designed a really gorgeous wordpress template that a lot of people are using, and at the bottom of the template is a link to his site, so…
    Not quite in the TallSkinny or JesusCreed ballpark… 🙂

    ahhh . . so you are saying he is SMARTER than us also?

  • Bob says:

    I suppose I am 🙂

    Well – thanks for the link Andrew. Yah – unfortunately, when I designed the WordPress theme, I wasn’t really thinking, and I wanted to link it back to where I hosted the theme….making it pomomusings — so…but yah – it does mess with my Technorati ranking. And unfortunately, when I decided I wanted to change that a few months ago, I was never able (and still can’t!) get in touch with the person who hosts it on themes.wordpress.net and he won’t get in touch with me so I can update it.
    But yes…the Feedburner is a better measure – and I normally get around 900+ unique hits/day. So…it’s still pretty decent.
