Blog As Often As You Can

I’ve already read numerous blog post advising bloggers to blog at regular intervals. When you have so many ideas today, write about it and put it at your drafts and schedule it to be posted at a later time. When the time comes that you run out of ideas to blog about, you’ll have some reserved to post.

Well, I beg to differ from them. My way is to blog as often as I can and when the time comes that I run out of something to blog about, then, I don’t blog. Hehehe.

Actually, this depends on what your blogging goal is. When your goal is just to please your readers, then do what they suggest. My goal is different. My goal is to have as many search engine traffic as I can and to have regular readers in the process. That’s why when an idea popped up in my head, I blog about it on that same day. Even if I already have 2 or 3 blog posts on that day, I just keep blogging. Why? Because I want Google to index my blog posts as early as possible. If I put my ideas in drafts and waited for 2 or 3 days before I post it, I’ve already lost 2 or 3 days of search engine traffic.

It could turn-off some readers. But it could also gain new readers. And when you do it everyday, blogging as often as you can and not blogging when you have nothing to blog about, then, your regular readers will eventually get used to your being unpredictable. And they will not leave you. Just look at my RSS subscribers. I blog at different intervals on different topic since I started this blog. I’m so unpredictable, you don’t know what topic will I blog about on my next blog post and when will I post it. Did my readers go away? Nope. On day 1, I have zero RSS subscriber. Now, I have 200+ subscribers. The numbers fluctuates but it still increases everyday.

So, my advice? Blog as often as you can. And don’t blog if you have nothing to blog about. Hehe.

P.S. Some people are doubting my claim that this blog is getting an average of 1000 unique visitors per day. Ok, here’s an absolute unique visitors report I’ve extracted from Google Analytics to remove your doubts. Note that it is not the number of page views yet. Of course, page views are higher than that.
