2016 may have been a strange year for a lot of people, but it was a record-breaking year for this blog. In spite of a big drop in productivity through the fall while I transitioned to a new job in Texas – I only published 41 new posts this year, my lowest year – some amazing things have happened. Everything is way up:
These stats are just a small sample of the growth this blog has experienced. Here’s what people have been coming for – the top posts of the year, all in one spot.
#10 suggested there’s a reason why the “team” approach often misses, and offered a way to do it better.
#9 promoted the concept of creative vision, and how it was a key part of Walt Disney’s story.
#8 celebrated what makes for good content, here and perhaps in your world too.
#7 was an executive summary of much of what I’ve learned about doing creativity and communications in church.
#6 looked at common mistakes churches make with technology.
#5 commented on Chick-Fil-A’s decision to do something besides the cows.
They’ve since backed off the anti-cow stance.
#4 documented the roll out of a little promotional effort at the church where I worked.
#3 reviewed a really great book called Jesus Speaks.
#2 gave a full checklist of things to accomplish in a worship design meeting.
And once again, #1 was my annual top 25 list of fast growing, large United Methodist churches.
Thanks for being a part of my blog and let’s keep creating in 2017!
