Yesterday, Tony over at Ministry To Children released his top blogs of 2011 post. He spent who knows how many hours pouring over numbers, stats and data to determine a rank for the top 100 kidmin blogs. He’s been doing this for years, but last year was the first year he used a subjective method to consider all the data.

The results? Childrens Ministry Online is the top blog for the second year in a row! Woo hoo!

It truly is an honor. This last weekend I got to speak at a conference where no one knew who I was. Well, maybe there were 2 or 3 people who have read this blog. I encouraged the conference attendees to read kidmin blogs. I encouraged them to contact the authors of the blogs and and pick their brains. I told them not to be intimidated, we’re just a bunch of nobody’s trying to make a difference.

So, although I’m the top Kidmin blogger for the second year in a row, that doesn’t change the fact that this nobody still loves helping others, connecting, sharing ideas and learning from anyone who has ideas. Although I’ve gotten a little slower in recent months (due to Illuminate), feel free to contact me about anything, I love to connect.

What makes me happiest about this list?

Two of my closest friends are with me in the top 3. Oh yeah, and Matt McKee is 14! Ha! I love you too Matt!

I’m excited about many of the other kidmin people I know that are blogging their hearts out. I’m excited to see other friends climbing up this list and making a difference, sharing ideas and making Kidmin better. Here’s to another year blogosphere!
