Create Blog Posts Consistently
Write a blog post consistently, once a day, once a week, twice a month, once a month, whatever, but stick to that schedule.
When you start Blogging, do not set a weekly schedule, the stress of producing a superlative Blog post once a week may kill the fun of Blogging. I say this from my personal experience and those of fellow Bloggers.
For starters, (first six months) producing a superlative Blog post of at least 1200 words, interlaced with well chosen (free or purchased) images / photographs, once a month maybe a good fit.
This will give you the time to:
- Do proper research on the topic content
- Create your initial draft
- Correct the draft content of any spelling / Grammar mistakes
- Get it read and critiqued by a few friends your trust
- Tweak the content if you agree with the critique
And so on, until you believe you have got it right.
That said, once is month is really too poor an output cycle to gain you a fan following on the Internet. If your Blog posts are unique and valuable, strangely people want more and more of it. If the interval in between Blog posts is too long, they lose interest in your Blog posts surprisingly quickly.
Hence, within the planned six months or less (three months should be ideal), your Blogging process should be in place, so that you could ramp this up to one Blog post every 15 days.
After 3 months of this practice, ramp the Blog posts to one every week.
The one superlative Blog post a week, will start getting you a bit of a fan following perhaps.
While there is no perfect schedule for releasing your Blog posts if you can craft one terrific Blog post every three days or so, within a few months you will see:
- A definite increase in your site visitors
- They will be spending more and more time on your site
- Your comments section will start getting richer and more interesting
NOTE: Your SPAM comments will also start getting richer regretfully because the quality of your Blog is attracting all sorts of people to it.
