This year in blogging for RobbieMack.co!

This has been a wonderful year in blogging for me but a challenging year. Some months I was consistent while others I was not. I took a break in blogging which hurt my numbers and so it has been slow trying to bounce back. Here is the site traffic for 2015:

Below are the top five posts for RobbieMack.co:

  1. 5 Apps that Scare me as a Parent (282 Views)
  2. Friendship, Waffle House, Phi Kappa Alpha and C. S. Lewis (169 Views)

  3. Qualifications of a Real Parent (139 Views)

  4. Why I am probably leaving Facebook (129 Views)

  5. Ashley MadisonĀ® Cheating Site and Ministers (121 Views)

Some highlights of the blog is that I finally have settled with a theme I absolutely love (Make by The Theme Foundry). Somewhat frustrating was that I paid for a logo that I think does not fit what I want to do but I can change that later. Here are some of my goals for 2016:

  • Offer better content that speaks to issues families and Christians struggle with.
  • Make my posts more positive in tone and work on my grammar a bit more.
  • Offer an e-book for purchase that speaks to how Christians can navigate discipleship in a way that makes sense and doesn’t take a PhD to decipher it.
  • Have more guest posts so that others may have a voice on this blog.
  • Increase traffic with the goal of having 6,000 views by the end of 2016. I want to do so without the typical gimmicks or click-bait tactics. I want to grow the traffic by simply offering content that people want to read.

Lastly, I want to offer my gratitude for you visiting this site and listening to my ramblings and, at times, weighing in. It is a humbling task to share what one most often does not understand in a public forum like this. I am thankful for you guys more than you know.
