What Every Christian Blogger Should Learn from the Miley Cyrus VMA Debacle

Stirring up controversy is a quick fix to running dry on time and talent. Don’t fall into that trap. Be patient, stay in the Word, pray continually and don’t be controversial to stir up traffic and a buzz just because you are bored or don’t have anything of depth left to say. Slug-fests attract a crowd but numbers don’t always mean a win. Someone almost always gets beat up in the process. Let your talent speak for itself and the quality of your content be what draws people back time and time again to what you write and stay away from foolish controversies.

  1. Very solid points Matt. I think I may have something to say about the VMA’s in my post tomorrow. It falls right in with what the apostle Paul talks about toward the end of Romans 1.

  2. Nick Gill says:


    I think I saw three — THREE — VMA-related posts that deserved to have been written. Counting this one.

  3. Great advice for a new blogger. I have heard other people say quality content trumps just about everything else. Any advice on post frequency?

    Love it! Most excellent post. I agree. One hit wonders only last for a season. Building true community/tribe/readers etc. comes through consistency.
