In an earlier post we covered the Best Time to Blog Post, so naturally I received a few emails asking the question “How often should I post to my blog?” This is a frequently asked question among new bloggers.
You could receive a hundred different responses to this question and have a hundred correct responses. There are just too many variables of a blog and the blogger to give you one answer. If you have a news blog you may want to post two to three times a day. If you write a seasonal blog then you may write more posts during the season and then less post in the off season. For example, if you write a Christmas blog you may only post twice a month February to October and then post every day in November and December and then once a week in January.
When you first start your blog you should have goals and a plan for your blog. This will include a decision on how often you should post. As a general rule, you should post as often as you wanted so long as you provide quality information without burning out your readers. Remember to review your stats periodically to help determine your posting schedule.
Just remember that even if you have a seasonal blog, you will still need to post regularly or often enough to keep your ranking in the search engines. So tell me what kind of blog do you have and how often do you post?
