Earlier we discussed about how frequent you should update your blog. As we know, Consistency is the key to success for avid bloggers. There aren’t any written rules to find the optimal blogging frequency; however, there is a solution. Indubitably, it’s the ‘trial and error’ method. But, this method has a disadvantage: it’s a time-consuming process. One has to spend sufficient time in researching his/her content’s clarity, style, mood, uniqueness, etc. Utilize the tips mentioned below to become aware of the optimal blogging frequency for your blog.
1. Analyze the content
Even for experienced bloggers, it takes sufficient time to find his/her blog’s optimal frequency. That’s why the quality of a blog’s content matters more. However, a blog’s design, style and interface are important for attracting readers. On one hand, an interesting content can make the readers visit one’s blog. On the other hand, only consistency can bring the readers, back to the same blog frequently. Making enormous research on the theme is highly recommended before you start with a blog. It’s better to have a single theme for the entire blog. These researches are quite important. But, most of the current bloggers ignore them without realizing their benefits.
2. Progress steadily
Once you become clear about your content’s theme, you may start posting articles in your blog. If you have put your work on pause, you may resume posting then. However, you may find noticeable changes between your current posts and the earlier ones. If they don’t possess big differences, continue to add your posts. Else, don’t hesitate to delete the older posts. Make a fresh start with your researches. During the initial stage, you may post one article per week. Try to post articles at the same frequency for at least 3 to 4 months.
3. Set your frequency
Don’t try to hurry up with your posts. Some bloggers commit the mistake of posting too many articles in a single day. As far as blogging is considered, remember that quality is more important than quantity. Secondly, consistency is highly essential for any successful blog. Once you learn to post your articles consistently, you may increase your blogging frequency. Do consider the viewers’ interests while deciding your blogging frequency. Make sure that your content is fresh in every post; however, the theme of your blog mustn’t change with every post. Promotion of a blog is quite important to gather like-minded readers. Don’t hesitate to promote your blog through social-networking sites and online forums.
4. Wait for the result
Make a note on the number of readers, frequent visitors, number of hits, number of comments, etc., in your blog. You may then decide the frequency of your posts. In case, if you have few readers only, reduce your blogging frequency. It might give time for the readers to keep updated with your blog. Once you have sufficient number of readers in your blog, increase your posting frequency progressively. To mention, this process consumes time. Have patience in your work and proceed steadily.
Different blogs need different blogging frequencies for success. So, don’t compare your blog with others to guess your blog’s optimal frequency and to save time. Definitely, you won’t regret it later. Just remember that the remote control of your blog lies in your hand. Handle it smartly and you can turn you blog’s way to success or a downfall. So, get ready to find your blog’s favorable frequency by yourselves. Happy blogging!
