How Often Should You Post In Your Blog
How soon after you start a blog until it begins to become work to keep it up? We all lead busy lives, and unless you blog full time for a living, keeping your blog current can be a real chore sometimes. So here is one of the most asked questions when it comes to blogging.
The meeting will be held information such as:
How often should I post on my blog? Another way to put it is how little can I get away with posting! This is why it is so important to start a blog on a theme that you have a passion for or expertise in.
It never seems like work if you enjoy it. But even that can not make up for the time it takes to blog on a regular basis. If you are busy with your life blogging can be easy to forget.
I studied the blogs of 3 well know internet marketers. Ewen Chia, Rosalind Gardner, and Darren Rouse. Ewen is the top affiliate in just about every program he is in. Rosalind is the author of "The Super Affiliate Handbook" and earns big bucks with affiliate marketing, and Darren is the owner of
WOW that is amazing to me. If blogging is so important how is the #1 in all the programs?
Next, we look at Rosalind Gardners'
It looks like she posts when she has something to offer. Usually about 2-3 times a week. This is much better, but it is still not daily or even several times a day.
Here is what is would guess about these 3 brilliant marketers.
- Ewen relies on pay per click advertising and only blogs to support what he teaches in the internet marketing material he sells
- Rosalind is big on pay per click advertising as well. She blogs to build her list and keep it informed about what is going on. Her blog is high traffic because she does not do much email marketing other than to refer people to a blog post he made. She probably has a very large mailing list that subscribes to her newsletter.
- Darren blogs and blogs and blogs. This is what he is famous for. His traffic is there to learn how to blog and make money blogging. He has a very impressive blog as you would expect.
So what does that mean to you and how often should you post in your blog? It depends on the type of blog you have.
For sure if your blog is a large part of your business you need to blog several time per week. If it is a new blog you should blog daily or more often to start. Then you can blog less often after that. Maybe even weekly or a couple of times per week.
If you get traffic to your website from ways other than blogging than you can get away with posting weekly or even a couple of times per month. You really just need to post when you have something to offer your readers.
To answer this depends on the age of your blog, the style, and what you use it for. I still say that if your blog is on a theme that you have a passion for you will blog on a consistent basis because it is fun to do. And that will be often enough. And consider in more detail at a meeting
