There are a number of ways to measure the success of a blog - number of page views, number of comments, number of RSS subscribers, etc. In my opinion though, your blog is only truly successful if God is working through it.
But how do you know - really know?
I find a lot of times that to know if we are in the will of God we have to pay attention to our prayer requests and how God answers those prayers. Are your prayers for your blog being answered? Do you even know? I actually keep a separate prayer journal for my online business and blogs. This is so helpful in keeping track of my prayers and God's responses. It also helps me to see just how much God is working in my business and on my blogs.
Of course comments and emails from readers stating that you have helped them in some way can show you that God is working through your blog. It just makes my day when I get a comment or email stating that I in someway helped that person - it just confirms to me that I am doing what God wants me to do. It's amazing that I can help Christian's build online businesses and blogs - but I know that it is only through God that I am able to.
So how do you tell if God is working through your blog?
