Giving up on Work e-mail – Status Report on Week 13

  1. I’d suggest freeing yourself from a blogging schedule and posting, when you can/want to. If you have too many posts to share per day, write them and post them, when you don’t have anything to say (unless they are really timely/urgent, of course).

    After I switched to writing well-researched articles, the amount of visitors and popularity of blog posts has increased. Simple short blog posts didn’t have the essence to be widely popular.

    Then again, we have Seth Godin, who shares plenty of short ideas/posts per day. This style works for him, though.

    Thus, I’d still say post as you like and you’ll end up at forming the writing schedule you will enjoy.

  2. Hi Yura, many thanks for the feedback comments and for dropping by! Lots of good stuff in there! That is quite fascinating input, because I have been hearing quite the opposite, how with shorter blog posts you end up having a higher readership because people can digest them quicker and then move on, I suppose, which is what you mean as well. Perhaps giving a bit more substance is a good thing, why not, so I will have a look and see how it goes. Must confess that I have never been too concerned with having thousands of readers on a daily basis or anything. I am not blogging because of that and those who know me can share perhaps some more details on it.

    I rather prefer to have a few readers who read and engage on most of the blog posts than several thousand people coming in, reading a line or two, and then moving on, so I think I am going to agree with your last sentence mentioned above! Thanks for helping confirm something I may have ignored for a bit: blogging should first meet your needs, then those of others 😀

    Thanks again for the feedback!
