Writers have been busy building blogs, platforms and improving their marketing skills but some are reaching a decision time. The fever pitch with which they have been operating under
is causing them to drop like flies is
taking its toll.
To post blogs 2 or 3 times a week, or not, that is the question.
Well respected Anne R. Allen came out the other day and talked about slow-blogging where you blog less but be sure you have a good post when you do. Quality always wins over quantity, but does that mean we should give up trying to build/create a blog people want to visit by decreasing our presence with less blogs?
Do we want to throw our hands up and say, see—Anne Allen thinks we should slow blog, so
have the perfect excuse to give up I’m
going to stop trying so hard.
Stop for a moment, writers. Think what it is you want and how you plan on getting there. Was KristenLamb wrong when she said we need to blog 2 or 3 times a week to build brand? I know I decided months ago that I couldn’t write 3 blogs in a week; that was too much for me. But even with 2 blogs a week, I still can’t find time to write on my own writing projects, so maybe Anne is right.
Or, am I still learning to effectively use my time learning to write quicker, smarter, more creatively? Is there a learning curve here and should I keep on blogging at 2 times a week?
I know this subject is going to raise a lot of discussion so I dipped into the electic cool-aid and found a video that might help us put blogging into perspective. It is about mind, quantum physics and what we create from the top scientists and thinkers who have given this subject much exploration and thought. It might help.
Thoughts to consider:
- Do you write blog posts that take too long to
write, and no one wants to read
because they gagbecause when they see all those words (tighly packed together with no space between paragraphs)?
- Have you found your voice?
- Should you write one blog a month (and still not have found your voice), only now no one comes around any more to even read that one blog?
- Do you drive people away with short, meaningless posts?
- Do people stop coming around because you have nothing to say but you keep blogging the same things anyway?
- Should you keep blogging to find your voice, your audience, your own subject matter that will matter?
- Has all your blogging time been building a following? So should you make a change or keep doing what you are doing?
