Are Daily Posts A Good Thing?

Mar 1, 2008
When it comes to the blogging world you may have noticed how quickly things can change. It can be very difficult to stay on task with all of the tiny details of blogging. Keeping up on your posts can be one of those details. But are you actually posting too much?

Regular posting can be a big debate amongst bloggers, especially when it comes to daily posting. Some bloggers post every single day and some weekly and some post just whenever they feel like it. But you need to really analyze your blog and decide what is going to be best for you.

Don't Post Daily

The size of your fan club doesn't really matter. If you are posting new content daily that you are more than likely wasting your time. Not only is this hard to do, but who honestly has time to check your blog daily for new content?

When you are constantly adding new content to your blog, it can be more annoying than anything. The majority of your readers are fans of several different blogs, not just yours. So imagine how they will feel if daily they get bombarded with new posts. It could get real old fast.

Focus on the Quality

When you are writing new posts every single day, after a month that is quite an accumulation of content. Is is seriously possible to write great posts daily? It' not. That's just how it is. If you are really wanting to find great readership, than posting daily content is not the way to do it.

Whenever there is a deadline, especially a daily one, the quality of your post will go down which means your readership will too. Try to focus on good quality in every single post. It may take you a week to really get out a great post but that is better than posting too many poor posts. Think of quality not quantity.

Your Loyal Readers Will Stay Loayl

You may have quite the dedicated readers that love to your posts but that doesn't mean that they are constantly checking your blog for new posts almost hourly. Many people get used to a certain posting schedule. If they know that you generally post on Tuesday mornings, but Thursday night they won't be checking your blog again.

Try to find a good schedule that works for you and then stick to it the best you can. This doesn't mean daily or even weekly, it means whatever works for you. And if you can't stick to it, then that is fine too. Just don't bend over backwards trying to find the best content daily.

If you are currently a daily blogger than change your habits. For the first week, only post two or three times and take note of the difference in your traffic and your readership. If you are notice positive changes than stick with them and see what else you can change up. You won't regret it when you see the positive changes in your blog and readers.
