So I go to this seminar taught by an old friend of mine. She is training on how to blog for your job. Yeah, blog like you want people you know to read it. AWKWAAAAAARD! But then the topic comes up from some middle aged freakazoid in the back, me, asking what was the best frequency to post on a blog.
There was a brief discussion on how blogs need to post frequently in order to build a following. If you only blog once a week or so, you don't have people creating a habit to check you out. BUT, with the advent of readers, you just have to impress once or twice with your brilliance to get added to a feedreader.
Now we have a new problem. If you post too frequently and it is all about what you had for lunch, rather than something of interest to the greater world (like new Tagamilf products) then you have reader burnout. You literally burn out whatever interest you created in your readers because NOBODY can mine gold every day.
My friend teaching the class actually said, please don't ever post on a blog every day. Nobody has the time to read daily posts. Make it a few times a week and make it worthwhile.
So tonight, one day after bragging in a single $6.00 frozen, fruity alcoholic Outback Steakhouse drunken stupor that I blog every day, I have to ask, "Should I?"
And to be really fair, you, the reader are the person I really need to ask. Should I continue to try to post everyday? Is it a general waste of time? I would really like to know what you think. Both of you.
