How often should I blog?
This is probably one of the most commonly asked questions among new bloggers.
As we work hard to increase our traffic and find new readers, many of us wonder if there’s a magic number of times we should be posting each week. Should we really be posting five days a week? Can we post less?
And does it really even make a difference?
Today, it’s time to answer this question once and for all so you can stop stressing about it!
How Often Should I Blog?
To put it simply, there is no magic answer when it comes to how often you should publish new content on your blog. It’s totally up to you and what you’re capable of producing.
That means if you want to post five days a week, you can absolutely go for it. However, if three days per week (or less) is more your jam, then that’s fine as well.
The truth is, it doesn’t matter how often you post. What matters is the quality of your content.
Amazing blog content is what will keep people coming back time and time again. They want valuable stuff that they can learn from. They want actionable advice that can then be implemented into their lives. That’s why quality beats out quantity every single time.
The last thing I want to see any blogger doing is publishing a blog post for the sake of getting up five posts per week. Don’t subject yourself and your readers to sub-par blog posts just to say you published something new. Never throw together a rushed post that isn’t up to your usual standards simply because you don’t want to miss a day.
Determining Your Posting Schedule
Now that you know the importance of quality over quantity, you need to determine your posting schedule. And it all goes back to one single question, in my opinion.
How many high-quality blog posts can I commit to each week?
For some of you, that answer may be three. Or it may be one. It doesn’t matter! It all goes back to how much time and effort you’re able to commit to blogging.
So, choose the posting frequency that works for your schedule. Select the day you want to publish content each week. And then stick to it. It’s as simple as that, my friends!
My final piece of advice is that blogging should never feel like a chore. If you’re starting to get overwhelmed by your posting schedule, take a step back if you need to. Don’t feel guilty if you miss a day or two. Your audience will still be there, ready for whatever you have next.
You no longer have to ask, “How often should I blog?” So all that’s left is to start creating content!
