For the last year, I’ve been posting 5 days a week steadily. To date, I’ve published 540 posts since June 2008. All free content. I’ve also produced 66 episodes on the podcast with many more in the queue . . . again, all free content. (I enjoy giving away my material whenever I’m able.)
I advise bloggers who are starting out to post frequently. However, once you’ve hit a decent inflection point, posting every week day (or every day) has it’s downside. Namely, it’s too much for some people. They just can’t keep up.
Recently, a few of my friends complained about this very thing. They said they loved the blog, but they couldn’t keep up with the frequency of 5 posts a week. I’ve even lost subscribers because of it.
I also happen to be in the process of launching two new businesses, and I’m seeking to spend more time in my ministry to the poor and forging relationships with non-Christians. I’m also working on a new online course that I plan to launch in the Fall.
For all of these reasons, I’ve decided to cut back on my blogging frequency. So here’s the new frequency . . .
From now on, I plan to post Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
This rhythm will free up my time to concentrate on the other things that are on my plate. It will also give you — my readers — more time to keep up with my posts. In addition, it will allow time for those of you who are new to the blog to check out the Archives and read some of the past posts that you’ve missed.
Finally, if you’re new to blogging or you’re looking for a new server host or you need to grab some new domain names, I highly recommend BlueHost. It’s the best hosting service I know of. They also have support for WordPress bloggers. So if you’ve been blogging for awhile or you’re new to the craft, sign up with BlueHost. Their prices and support are amazing. And their affiliate program is the best I know. Click the banner below to check it out and sign up.
How do you feel about my new posting frequency?
