This week, task #9 in the Ministry Blogger Challenge is this: Join a Forum and start participating. Darren says this:
Spend some time today searching for forums in your niche. Once you find them, join up and start participating. The key is to spend time being as useful as possible to the forum. Your main activity should NOT be leaving links to your blog but answering questions, making connections, and generally being as useful as you can to other members of the forum.
Some of the best forums I’ve found have been at Ministry to Children and Kidology. At Kidology, you have to be a member to participate, but you can get the free membership and start chatting. I’ve met a lot of great Children’s Ministry people on these forums, so in addition to building your blog, you’ll meet some great new friends.
So what are you waiting for? Get on out there and get started!
