Currently I've managed 1 post a week since the start of April. This is my longest, continual, weekly post chain.

My plan is to blog at least once a week and hopefully I can keep this blog chain going.

Dial down the pressure

Feeling you HAVE to post once a week to keep to a timetable like they could be the downfall of the momentum as life more often than not gets in the way!

It was every fortnight before that. I'm trying to make sure I've got something relevant (to me) every week.

And Now into January 2020

P-A-R-T-Y!
I honestly don't know how you (and others) can plan work so far in advance.

I must be a personality thing or something but my work is VERY haphazard so I will get a company on Monday want to work with me and by Friday the content would be up. VERY little is planned, I suppose the only examples of those recently are the Surveys and Matched Betting posts but I only wanted to do those for Keywords it wasn't a case of I REALLY WANT TO WRITE ABOUT TOPIC XYZ!

this is why I don't think I would ever be any good at running a blog which is more personal in nature as I'm just not one for planning!

I have 3 blogs going at the moment, so I need some sort of planning to keep on top of them.

Some of the posts are more campaign-led, contributing towards particular goals. These are released according to a drip-feed editorial calendar.

Some are seasonably-based. I'll often update old blog posts and republish them with a recent date (but the same URL) for this. Others react to things which have happened recently, which I get up ASAP.

I sometimes hire writers for blogs. I tend to publish these as soon as I've had change to review and edit the work (more for style and SEO than grammar or facts).

Likewise, I'll tend to publish ad hoc posts as soon as they're written. My audiences aren't particularly loyal - they don't revisit on a regular basis looking for new content, so there's not much value in holding posts back. May as well let Google get its teeth into them.

yeah I never understand the 'holding content back' thing. Why tell us you have an exciting post coming up on Monday?!?! Just publish it and submit it to Google Search Console already lol

This has been playing on my mind.

I like to have at least one post a week to make sure I do have content on my blog. I have a squillion drafts that I end up turning into posts eventually. Some of my stuff is reviews so not time critical and they fit well into the structure of my release cycle.

HOWEVER

other posts, like more SEO friendly stuff, I think I should be shoving out right away. I have remove the time/date info from my blog posts so they aren't "Old" and they would benefit from the extra google-time.

I will continue to give this more thought.

:)

Thanks,

The Reverend
