When it comes to blogging, “How often should I blog?” is the most frequently asked question. There is no as such answer to this question because most of the bloggers prefer to maintain their own blogging schedule depending upon their busy routines. It varies person to person.
Its all about content & when it comes to right, useful content, there will be audience to read it. Some of the blogging schedules which can be implemented are as follows:
- Multiple posts per day
- Daily posts
- 2-3 posts per week (Most preferred frequency)
- 1 post per week (Most preferred frequency)
- 1-2 posts per month
Is it necessary to blog frequently?
Well, yes! Search engines, especially Google loves fresh, unique content. So those blogs which are updated frequently with new content/ posts are likely to be crawled by Google seamlessly & quickly. Most importantly the blog will stay listed for longer period of time.
Updating at least once a week is sufficient to begin with. If you go less than that, it would be hard to maintain your reader’s interest. Frequent blogging eventually will build your position/goodwill among the readers & you will see an increase in the volume of social sharing & the traffic as time progresses.
In today’s world where everyone is busy with their own routines, it becomes tough to update the blog regularly. But if one is serious about blogging, not updating the blog at all will be a wrong move. If you post anything good, you will get traffic/social shares even if you don’t update very often because quality matters than the quantity.
