How often should I post on my blog?
Starting a blog can sometimes be overwhelming. What do i do first? How often do I post? Between designing your blog, getting the latest plugins to work and coming up with content, blogging may seem overwhelming! How many times you post on your blog is actually quite simple. Here’s a few suggestions.
How often you post depends on the type of blog you have. Example, a gossip blog might need daily posts, even several times a day to keep up with breaking news. However, If you have a cooking blog, a couple times a week might be all that's needed. A seasonal blog, like a gardening blog, should have very frequent posts during the spring and summer and less during the winter. When trying to determine how often to post, ask yourself these questions:
1. What audience am I trying to appeal to and what type of information am I offering them?
2. When are they searching for this information and where are they finding it?
3. Can I actually stick to a frequent posting schedule?
4. How much can I comfortably write per day? Per week?
Answering these questions is going to give you a better idea on how often to post on your blog. What works for others might not work for you. It's very important to consider yourself and your own site when setting up a schedule that works.
At the end of the day, no one can tell you schedule is right for you. It’s something you have to figure out on your own. It depends on the type of blog you have, how much time you have and who you are as a person. Once you find what works for you, stick with it and make sure to have fun with it.
