Launched in August of 2003, Pomomusings has been around for over 9 years. Through that time, a strong effort has been put into creating a sense of community for readers of the blog. Pomomusings continues to boast a very strong and devout readership. While the blog itself tends to lean to the left theologically and politically, the readership is extremely diverse in all areas: theologically, socially, politically & demographically.
Posts on Pomomusings range from topics on the emerging church, theology, religion and youth ministry, to web design, WordPress and social media, to politics, technology and sexuality. For the past 6 years, I have been reviewing books on my blog for major publishers, including: InterVarsity Press, Baker Books, Jossey-Bass, Doubleday, Simon & Schuster, Thomas Nelson & Zondervan.
It has been called one of the most well-known Christian/emerging church blogs and has received some impressive rankings recently. To begin with, Pomomusings.com has a Google PageRank of 4 (out of 10). Some other rankings include:
