Heyyy everyone! It’s been soo long, since I have checked in on WordPress, and so many notifications. One of my May goals was too stay on track, with my schedule (post 5 days a week), and I completely failed.
The reason behind my absence was because I was super busy. Graduation, and exams were taking a hold of me, and I needed to relax from blogging. But they are over! And I didn’t do to bad, because I passed all of them. So it’s back to my regualr schedule.
And that is what I’m talking about today! Why it’s important to keep a schedule for your blog. Because they are one of the most important factors in a successful blog.
Reflects on Readers
When I go on a websites (either company or other) I always look at the last time they posted. If it’s been a while (like a month or so) most likely I will think “this is not going to well, I shouldn’t follow’.
Many people from my ‘Reasons Why I Would Follow A Blog’ also said that schedules content is a big factor on following.
Keeps You Organized
Having a blogging schedule keeps you focused on what’s ahead, and can help you:
- Keep track of your posts
- Schedule ahead for more posts
- And keep you relaxed.
All in all, having a schedule leads to a non-stressful blogging experience!
Who doesn’t love statistics on their blog? Especially if they are high! Keeping a schedule helps with that, by ensuring your readers that you will be posting on these days. Which leads to more views. Which leads to more stats. Which leads to a happier you!
It is more likely that views are likely to increase on a day with a post, than without a post. Because fresh content generates more views.
Which type of schedule is right for you?
In this section of the post, I will be explaining the pro’s, and cons of several schedule types. Which one is the best for you?
3 Times a Week
- Less pressure
- More time to write up posts
- More time to do other things (like making friends, for your poor sad self)
- More thinking time to generate ideas for future posts.
- Less views than a person who blogs more
- More time to do things (which you might not wanna do)
5 Times A Week
- More views, more stats
- Fresh content
- Wayy more pressure
- Always having to think of ideas
7 Times A Week
- A whole lot more stats
- So much more content
- More inspiration
- Have to keep up with comments
- Have to keep on thinking of ideas
And that’s why having a blogging schedule is so important. My schedule is posting 5 days a week, and as you can see I’m failing. But it worked in the past, and I feel like it’s me who’s just being lazy. What is your ideal schedule? Why else do you think having a schedule is important?
