I learned something new yesterday, having had time to drop by the Inquirer.net office for a quick meeting. To reference Inquirer.net‘s
Bloggers can learn a lot from news media. What readers want is a predictable pattern when it comes to new content. Therefore, blogging should not be diarrhea or constipation. It should not be too much or too little. As long as there is a pattern, you will get more readers.
And this is true. A lot of bloggers can get bitten by the “blogging bug” and churn out a non-characteristic number of posts which goes against his or her posting routine. A blogger who does five or six posts a week may, all of a sudden churn out ten because “a lot more had happened” that was worth writing about.
The best way to temper this phenomenon wold be to schedule posts at least one hour apart so that Google has an easier time indexing your posts. I also figure that two posts per day for personal blogs can be the maximum you should do as you also need to get a life. 🙂
