Posting Strategy

You might have noticed that I didn’t put up a post yesterday.  That wasn’t so much an accident as I was just busy over at my other site.  I wrote vigorously yesterday.  Time winged by, and I was having a blast.  Then I read several blog posts yesterday that announced the respective bloggers had decided to forgo the challenge of blogging daily.  They were not going to stop blogging, but they didn’t feel like the aim of blogging every day for the simple sake of saying you had a post every day was necessarily a worthwhile venture.

As I worked on content over at my other site yesterday, this really seemed to hit home with me.  Over the last several weeks, I have put up content on my blog that while not a bad effort, has been less and less substantial in my view.  I am of the mind that any effort should be done regularly, however the overriding principle should be the quality of the content, and in my humble opinion, I am not living up to the quality.

Don’t worry folks…my blog is not folding up shop.  I very much enjoy how my blog has developed since last year.  I am excited to see where my writing has evolved.  I am even more excited to keep working my craft and honing it into something very special to me.  I just don’t feel that blogging every single day serves the purpose it did at the beginning of the year.

    Hey Mike, I hear you! Thanks for the ping back. I’ve got a post coming up about content and ‘writing for the web’ – will try to let you know when I write it. Quality content is the way of the future.

    I commend you for this admission and realization, Mike. This is why I limited myself to a post a week, not a post a day, and my goal was only to have an AVERAGE of a post a week, so at least 52 posts by the end of 2011. I’m well on my way to that, because I tend to feel creative at least once a week, meaning I don’t struggle creating quality (well, to me, who knows about my readers!) content at least that often. Be reasonable and focus on quality, not quantity…as they say. 🙂
