Welcome to this week’s Asking The Readers. I invite and encourage everyone to share their response and opinions. Super Blogging has a great community and we want you to participate too, so after you’re done reading, please leave a comment and express your point of view as well!
So now I want to know, how often should bloggers post? Browsing around the blogosphere, I see a lot of different thoughts on this topic. Some people love quantity and having five new posts appear in their RSS reader or inbox for them to devour each day. But others prefer quality, and they’re happy with one to four posts a week or even much less than that. There are so many opinions on this topic, and none of them are either right or wrong – but I’d like to know where the majority stands.
Personally, I’m all for quality. If a blogger is putting out ten worthless posts a day, then in my opinion that’ll only drive people away instead of helping to grow that blogger’s site – I read a lot of blogs, and I just don’t have the time for that. I think anywhere from a couple posts week to once a day is a nice amount – but occasionally two or three posts in one day wouldn’t hurt, just not all the time.
Besides that, if you’re in one niche and write several posts a day, I believe that you’ll quickly burn out and the quality of your content will drop considerably, if you can even come up with any new ideas. Posting around once a day or less helps each post to get more exposure and gives you time to develop ideas for more articles.
That’s how I feel, but what’s YOUR opinion? How often do you like the blogs you read to post, and why? Please share your thoughts in the comments section and we’ll discuss it!
