Get ready for T1.chsocm: T1 Keeping in mind that blogs are a social media tool, where & how do they fit into your communications strategy? 3
  • 4. carinr: How great to have chat begin w/prayer. Kind of like the way the tweeted office from @VirtualAbbey calms the frantic tweetstream.klamach: Apologies for the typotsudo: Blogs act as our digital news room as well as a place to tell personal stories of missions and outreachrampracer: RT @chsocm: T1 Keeping in mind that blogs are a social media tool, where & how do they fit into your communications strategy?christinaauch: RT @carinr: How great to have chat begin w/prayer. like the tweeted office from @VirtualAbbey calms the frantic tweetstream.tsudo: Weve seen great response from our Pastors individual blogtijuanabecky: T1: You can use a blog to communicate big events, share more about the message, share whats happening in the church, etcdrothamel: T1: not every church/ministry should have or needs a blog. It MUST be more than a megaphone or online bulletin.frdavidken: My blog is pretty parish-focused, so its actually become more of a base from which to post to my parish facebook pageMeredithGould: I advocate building blogs into the website to provide some kind of interactive element for visitors.drothamel: @prkanderson your blog is a perfect example of what is possible with a pastors blog.iamepiscopalian: T1: They are tricky for us, at the corporate level to NOT fall into the "house- organ" thing.Denise205: @christinaauch @carinr It is a great way to start the chat, I agree!ECCSonline: We do! RT @MeredithGould: I advocate building blogs into the website to provide some kind of interactive element for visitors.carinr: Speaking as a reader of blogs, Ive been drawn to churches b/c I could tell the rector wd be an interesting preacher from his blog.drothamel: @MeredithGould that brings up the issue of blog as a framework, as opposed to just a site. Excellent.christinaauch: T1 no where yet :( blogs seem even more linked to persona than Twitter & Facebook for orgs 4
  • 5. prkanderson: Blogs force you to explain and develop your ideas - much needed in a 140 character worldcarinr: Blogs are also a place where parishioners get to see a bit behind the public, Sunday-morning face of the pastor.MeredithGould: @prkanderson I think people often forget that Twitter was pitched as "micro-blogging."prkanderson: Absolutely! RT @MeredithGould: I advocate building blogs into the website to provide some kind of interactive element for visitors.drothamel: @MeredithGould Oh, I remember the early days of Twitter, back when "microblogging" was how you had to describe it.carinr: The chaplain at my old U blogs her retreats at a monastery. Good way to model for students her own seeking of spiritual renewal.drothamel: @rev_david @MeredithGould @prkanderson actually, G+ is set up PERFECTLY for micro-blogging. Much more than FB.christinaauch: RT @Denise205: T1: Blogs are on online hub of soc media that allow deeper exploration of topics than something like Twitter allows.hughmacken: T1 blogs are an excellent tool for *asking questions* to generate a healthy discussion (in the comments section and elsewhere)klamach: @chsocm sorry if this gets old, but we can all learn from @JamesMartinSJ and his 140 character homilies everydaycarinr: Blogs also allow expansion on lectionary, more reflection than can be fit into 1 homily.rev_david: t1 - Teaching about SM this weekend, prob going to start with blogging as the underlying conceptfrdavidken: @carinr Im thinking of blogging Lenten series next year b/c its so hard to get people to come to church on eveningprkanderson: @jimwalton I dont think FB can sustain an idea or conversation as well as a blog can. It can extend the conversation from the blogklamach: RT @carinr: Blogs also allow expansion on lectionary, more reflection than can be fit into 1 homily.Denise205: @hughmacken Well, asking questions is a great tactic on all social media, isnt it?drothamel: @rev_david I think that blogging is the core concept of SM. It is the only SM platform that can function as a home base. 5
  • 6. tijuanabecky: Another alternative would be to use the Notes option on FB as a blogging tool (assuming your church has FB already).RevWeb: Anybody using blogs for bible study, etc.?rev_david: @prkanderson Ill touch base after the chatprkanderson: Problem with thinking of Twitter and FB as blogging is that they dont archive your content. Its there and then fads away.hughmacken: @rev_david id be interested to hear more too!drothamel: the important thing about a blog is that it can be owned by the operator. FB, twitter, etc. belong to someone else.jimwalton: @prkanderson My church has a very active FB page and no blog. We were looking at some kind of blog and ended up going with FBtsudo: @RevWeb Ive participated in some and REALLY want to explore that idea - are you?Denise205: @tijuanabecky But if you want posts as open as possible to reach wider audience, FB isnt the way to go for a "blog"hughmacken: @tsudo exactly, yes.frdavidken: @tijuanabecky Except that Facebook Notes doesnt always work for me. Sometimes it never opens for me when I click itchristinaauch: @frdavidken skeptics have asked how pastors can tweet or FB & raised privacy concerns; b/c depth, blogs are even more personaltsudo: @jimwalton you might try something simple like Posterous or Tumblr with a custom domain nametijuanabecky: @frdavidken Well thats annoying. Tumblr or Wordpress would make a good alternative then.prkanderson: RT @drothamel: the important thing about a blog is that it can be owned by the operator. FB, twitter, etc. belong to someone else.rev_david: MT @prkanderson: Problem with thinking of Twitter & FB as blogging is no content archive. It’s there and then fades away.drothamel: @jimwalton did you look at Wordpress at all?iamepiscopalian: RT @prkanderson: Problem with thinking of Twitter & FB as blogging is no content archive. It’s there and then fads away. 6
  • 7. jimwalton: @Denise205 @tijuanabecky I would agree that FB is a closed platform but who isnt on FB these days?ECCSonline: A blog is effective if it fulfills its purpose. Does yours have a purpose? Ay, theres the rub.drothamel: T2: Whatever you do, you must resist the temptation to define blogging success by the number of comments you receive.prkanderson: @MeredithGould And I use Trunk.ly to collect all the links I share on FBjimwalton: @drothamel I know WP well but a big part of what we were doing was photos of a big event and wanting to draw more people in.klamach: @drothamel I receive 0 so I can testifyfrdavidken: @drothamel @jimwalton The history is that facebook changes something. People gripe and say theyre leaving, but donthughmacken: @jimwalton i strongly agree. i actually like Facebook Notes, tagging, RSS feeds, & custom RSS feed with Feedburner.carinr: @drothamel Also, note that increasingly the convo about blog posts takes place off-blog - on Twitter especially, and now Google+chsocm: T2 If we agree that its not about numbers (do we agree?) then whats an effective blog?tijuanabecky: @drothamel Then you export your Notes and import to Wordpress then put a notice on the church website about the new location.drothamel: @jimwalton Ahhh. The themes have gotten so much better, that now you can do just about anything you need to.MLInnovations: RT @ECCSonline: A blog is effective if it fulfills its purpose. Does yours have a purpose? Ay, theres the rub.klamach: @drothamel @revdow just post your sermon to start and tag itDenise205: @frdavidken @drothamel @jimwalton But will G+ change that, and then we have to start rebuilding over there?drothamel: @frdavidken True. I just think that, even in the worst-case scenario, I am still in control of my blog.jimwalton: @drothamel What if.......... there are many what ifs, right now FB is where the masses are. The church needs to be ready to adapt.tijuanabecky: @RevDow try http://tweetchat.com 7
  • 8. christinaauch: RT @meredithgould: @prkanderson Backupify will archive social media content from Twitterdrothamel: @klamach heheh. I feel you.LakeCityAgent: RT @drothamel: the important thing about a blog is that it can be owned by the operator. FB, twitter, etc. belong to someone else.skynnard: RT @drothamel: the important thing about a blog is that it can be owned by the operator. FB, twitter, etc. belong to someone else.prkanderson: Church blogs cant be just an online newsletterrev_david: Blog. FB. Twitter. G+. Who says it is one over the others? A good SM strategy should integrate them all.Denise205: @jimwalton @drothamel But I think were moving into either/and territory here, when it should be both/andiamepiscopalian: T2: Effective? Only as long as you continue to post consistently over an extended period of time.frdavidken: @Denise205 @frdavidken @drothamel @jimwalton Like the circles concept, but Google Plus seems more cluttered. Maybe bc text is biggertijuanabecky: You could use FB, Twitter, G+, and a blog...depends on what youre communicating, where the ppl youre reaching are, etc.drothamel: RT @jimwalton: ". . .the church needs to be ready to adapt." AMEN.klamach: your blog is effective by its very existencedrothamel: RT @Denise205: And not all people SHOULD be blogging. Its not for everyone. Dont blog without purpose or passion.tijuanabecky: RT @drothamel: RT @jimwalton: ". . .the church needs to be ready to adapt." AMEN.MeredithGould: @ECCSonline Doesnt deepening relationships build community?drothamel: @rev_david @prkanderson I think you can be genuine without have to be personal. For me, a blog is about being genuine.jimwalton: RT @drothamel: RT @Denise205: And not all people SHOULD be blogging. It’s not for everyone. Dont blog without purpose or passion.klamach: @MeredithGould @Denise205 @frdavidken @drothamel @jimwalton G+ is a fad, stick with the real thing 8
  • 9. Denise205: T2: Im in a position where we have to use the numbers as one measure of effectiveness. But there are intangibles too.rev_david: @drothamel @rev_david @prkanderson Yes, but that "genuine" material - my ponderings, etc, are what I might rather put on my blog.TheBrose68: @prkanderson agreedrev_david: @prkanderson Yes. Im not sure how to measure the effectiveness.MeredithGould: @prkanderson Maybe "effectiveness" isnt possible to define, let alone measure when it comes to --> chsocmhughmacken: T2 a church blog? i want to see comments.more=better no comments=its not an effective blog. its traditional 1-way media.Denise205: @TotusTuus Hi! Youre right about using other social media to spread the main message that lives on blog or *gasp* websiteklamach: T2 just blog your sermon, or your take on the sermon, you are in effect bringing folks closer to your church somewhererev_david: @prkanderson T2 - not sure how to measure effectiveness - which makes blogging like much of church life.MeredithGould: @Denise205 Alas, some people are using it that way. The epistles being generated are...long.RevWeb: T2 I find Tom Bracketts blog http://bit.ly/dCKPdz very effective for community, archive, convo, etc. Hes missioner @ my denom.TotusTuus: @rev_david @prkanderson if I understand u, sitemeter on blog gives info as to where traffic comes from & there r other measurersprkanderson: @rev_david Amen and amen, sir.Denise205: Effectiveness is hard to define on a one-size-fits-all basis. I work on multiple blogs, and the measures differ for each.tijuanabecky: What if your pastor blogged about the church, his message series, and other related things. Have seen that be effective many times.drothamel: @rev_david @prkanderson Maybe you could get the ELCA to coming up with some "Blogging Effectiveness Benchmarks." ;-)rampracer: T2 Some conversations that start with a post on your blog continue on other blogs and some bloggers may not be tracking that 9
  • 10. rev_david: @TotusTuus Yes, I measure traffic, I look @ comments. But if goal is kingdom-building, those cannot be the some of effectiveness.klamach: RT @tijuanabecky: What if your pastor blogged about the church, his message series, and other related things. Have seen that be ...ECCSonline: @tsudo @tijuanabecky In addition to posting sermon transcript, what abt adding new material only available on blog?christinaauch: RT @Denise205: Effectiveness is hard to define on a one-size-fits-all basis.I work on multiple blogs,& the measures differ for each.tsudo: @ECCSonline he does that alreadyprkanderson: Ha! RT @drothamel: @rev_david @prkanderson Maybe you could get the ELCA to coming up with some Blogging Effectiveness Benchmarks ;-)rev_david: Yes, I measure traffic, I look @ comments. But if goal is kingdom-building, those cannot be the sum of effectiveness.TotusTuus: RT @prkanderson: @TotusTuus @rev_david @prkanderson I think an admin needs to spread content across many mediaschsocm: And T3a: Should comments be moderated?RevWeb: T3 Check content against mission/vision stmnt and ministry initiatives.drothamel: T3: Editorial oversight is critical if a group blog is going to survive. It is precisely why so many dont make it.ECCSonline: T3: Wow, thought provoking. Who controls editorial content of church blog? Vestry? Priest?prkanderson: RT @drothamel: T3: Editorial oversight is critical if a group blog is going to survive. It is precisely why so many dont make it.Denise205: At least a first comment. If nothing else, it helps keep the spam from showing, which makes the blog look untended.drothamel: T3a: I prefer to allow comments to be approved, moderated when necessary, but provide clear guidelines.rev_david: T3a(1) - If you are the pastor blogging for the church, should there be editorial oversight? If so, by whom and how?ECCSonline: We are firm believers in moderated comments. Much more bc of irrelevancy than opposition.klamach: RT @drothamel: T3a: I prefer to allow comments to be approved, moderated when necessary, but provide clear guidelines. 10
  • 11. MeredithGould: I come out of magazine publishing & ad/pr agency, so posts on any blog I manage are reviewed & copyedited.tijuanabecky: @ECCSonline @tsudo adding materials only available on the blog is great. Then share your posts via social networks.klamach: RT @drothamel: T3a: If you have a wordpress blog-- INSTALL AKISMET! Friends dont let friends get spammed.tsudo: I let registered users comments published, and manually approve unregisterd via @disqusDenise205: @drothamel Sadly, even Akismet is letting lots of spam through lately, at least for our set of blogs.theologybird: RT @ECCSonline: If the pastors blogging has editorial oversight, what about his/her sermons? #quicksand Good point!drothamel: T3a: Of course, Im also a basketball referee, so blowing the whistle and calling fouls comes naturally. :-)iamepiscopalian: T3: Our program officers are blogging. They are their own oversight. *note to self: decide if this is a good idea*tsudo: @Denise205 @drothamel I couldnt make it without Disqus and almost never see spamdrothamel: @Denise205 well, I actually prefer Disqus, but some people like the native WP comments.christinaauch: RT @chsocm: T3a: comments can be moderated by auto cc: to admin; req preapproval can shut down convo; delete anything inappropriateECCSonline: If priest/pastor adds new material re: sermon in blog, include that fact in the actual sermon so people know.MeredithGould: Showing my background and training: Im a big believer in style guides! (Im a dork.)ECCSonline: @MeredithGould Style guides? For blogging? Social media? What a refreshing concept. Is there one??prkanderson: @drothamel @Denise205 I really like Disqus too. Use it on my blog.MeredithGould: @drothamel LOVE @FakeAPStylebookjimwalton: RT @chsocm: And T3a: Should comments be moderated? I like first comments to be moderated. Once approved, generally legit. 11

HATE WPklamach: @rev_david wordpress here, seems to be the leaderiamepiscopalian: We are using Wordpress for all of our blogs.tijuanabecky: @rev_david Definitely Wordpress, its looks more professional, more options, easier in my opinion.tsudo: @rev_david Wordpress - strongest community, most flexibleDenise205: Wordpress! @rev_david Great support community & customization features.drothamel: @MeredithGould oh man. When was the last time you checked out WP? It is SOOO much easier than it was even 2 years ago.theologybird: Wordpress, but if blogger had that flexibility, @meredithGould, when I left I might have stayedRevWeb: T3 We have several blogging bishops in my denom. Whos going to check their content? Who should?Denise205: Plus there are so many Blogger blogs that wont accept my comments that I cant trust the tool.drothamel: @MeredithGould I also think that Google will stop developing/supporting blogger in the next few years. Just a hunch.tsudo: @MeredithGould nightmare? I set them up with Live Writer and they and love it. In my experiencetheologybird: @MeredithGould As a small parish priest, why? 12
  • 13. MeredithGould: @theologybird Very user friendly. WP is great if you have IT resources or are naturally geeky.mirgray: @rev_david It is effective if newbies mention your social media stuff. You ask visitors how they found you? Steeples arent enough.RevWeb: @MeredithGould Not in MY denom. Dumped him 450 yrs ago. But I digress. Edwin Newman told me once, everyone needs an editor.rev_david: Why?

Want a relationship with a community. So want to hear more voices.theologybird: @MeredithGould When I switched 3+ years ago what I found was I could go techier with WP, but I didnt have to. FWTWdrothamel: @iamepiscopalian really? I was a community manager for a company that used Drupal. It drove me nuts.drothamel: @ECCSonline Open Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_sourceMeredithGould: @drothamel Drupal. Loved it in principle, couldnt deal with it relative to design.iamepiscopalian: @drothamel Yeah, big move away from trad CMS solution to open source is in full swing.drothamel: @MeredithGould thats EXACTLY how I felt. Although, in fairness, I have heard from a few that it is now better.drothamel: @iamepiscopalian thats good though. It makes you less dependent upon vendors. Kudos.MeredithGould: @theologybird @iamepiscopalian I worked with someone for a while who stuck me in Drupal hell.iamepiscopalian: Well, anything can break if handled poorly. Just saying. @theologybird @MeredithGould 13
