I see posts like this asking or telling visitors that they should post a certain number of articles per week. Some actually going so far as to say daily.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to write a post every day. Nor, do I have time for 3-5 times per week either for that matter.
I don’t think there is a “you should”. It’s more about how much free time available you might have. Or, how much you enjoy writing in general.
If you have the time and you enjoy it by all means go for it. Write something 5-7 days per week.
Personally I don’t even have time for 2-3 times per week, and that is fine too.
Right now I am averaging 2 times per month. That is all I have time for and it works out pretty good for me.
Then again, I am not looking to attract tons of visitors or blog commentors for that matter. All that does is create more work in terms of moderation and checking comments for spam.
I do enjoy writing to some extent, but just not to the point that I am on the computer 24-7. Everyone needs some free entertainment time for themselves too.
I used to write more often, but I don’t really see the point anymore. I did get more visitors and comments, but I was also commenting on other blogs. A sort of you comment on my post and I’ll comment on yours was what it amounted to.
So, in my opinion there is no magic number you should shoot for. It’s more about what works for you and how much available time you have. It’s not worth burning yourself out over it.
A few years ago I knew this gal from the blog community. She posted 2-3 times per week for 6 months straight. Her main money maker was Google Adsense Ads.
At the end of the 6 months she made something like $10 from Google Ads. Whoopee!
She was a little disappointed and ended up quitting shortly thereafter.
Can’t say I blame her. All that time and work for a mere $10 doesn’t even come close to being profitable. Just imagine the amount of hours involved.
I have a few Google Ads on this website, but I don’t expect to make tons of money off them. I just figure heck if I make a few dollars here and there, then it’s a little added bonus.
I mostly write and publish articles as a hobby now. I originally started out writing Tutorials for Boonex Dolphin (CMS), and recently have been writing more generalized content and posts.
I guess I like a variety of content rather than the same topic over and over again.
I still enjoy Boonex Dolphin (CMS), but it’s nice to take a little break sometimes too.
So, bottom line write and publish as much as your little heart desires. Whether it’s 1 time per month or 30+ per month. Just get your game on and do it!
If you decide to give up because it’s not your thing, or for you that’s OK too. At least you tried.
