A Word From The Word

The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8, NLT)

A Word For Writers

Like evergreens in my landscape, an evergreen post stays relevant long after it’s been published. This content addresses topics that are always interesting to my readers, no matter what is going on in the world. 

The Evergreen Post: a #devotional for writers based on Isaiah 30:8 #blogging #ChristianWriting

Juniper, azalea, rhododendron, yew … just as evergreen shrubs provide a foundation in my landscape, evergreen posts act as pillar content on my blog or website.

They perpetually grab readers’ attention in topics that appeal not just now, but over the long haul. An evergreen post is optimized with strong, long-tail keywords related to these long-lived topics. This way, readers find these  posts easily and they contribute plenty of new traffic to your website. They are solid, reliable, helpful, and enduring – the opposite of a current craze post or clickbait.

That means I understand what my readers want and I take the long view as I write evergreen posts. Maybe a reader won’t need this piece of content right now. But in a week or six months or a year they will.

The ultimate evergreen content, of course, is God’s Word. It never fades. It never goes out of date. It offers lasting truths. To top it off, God’s Word addresses topics that perpetually interest His people – topics like sex, money, parenting, power, and success.

Your evergreen post offers lasting, relevant value for readers in topics that mean the most to them.

A Wise Word

Evergreen content offers lasting, relevant value.

A Word To Pray

Loving Father,

Thank you for the lasting truths You offer in Your Word. Let me continue to seek truths that endure. Show me how to communicate them in a way that is evergreen and relevant.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.
