Blogging Tip – Regular Posting

In spite of what you might think based on looking at the scarcity of new content posted on this blog I’ve known about this rule for a very long time.  In fact, it’s one of the first ones that I learned so many years ago when I started blogging.

Writing new posts on a regular basis is important.  When search engine spiders crawl your site and discover new content on a regular basis this is good.  It lets them (the search engines) know that your site isn’t a static thing that lies forgotten.

Another thing about regular new posts is that it’s extremely important to readers.  You know, that most important thing about a blog, the people you want to reach with your content?  If they stop seeing new content appear then sooner or later they’re going to stop looking.

Now it’s obvious that I’ve been guilty of ignoring that rule on this blog for way too long.  This is why I’m going to start making a point of writing *something* new on this blog every week.  It won’t necessarily always be about blogging or SEO but that’s ok, I stated from the very start that this blog would be about many different things.

As of today, there will be a new post on this blog each and every Thursday.  No doubt some of them will introduce new categories as I like to be free to write about whatever is on my mind at the time.

Now if this were a blog that is intended specifically to cover just Blogging and SEO topics then it would be important that every post be about those topics however while it is true that there is practically no end of things to write about those topics, that’s not always the thing that I’m going to be able to write about.  Sometimes other things are far more forward in my mind and that means I’ll be writing about those things instead.

Yeah, I know, that makes me a bit A.D.D. doesn’t it?  That’s ok, variety is the spice of life isn’t it?  (Or was that Garlic?)

Edit: While I am committing to a post every Thursday from here out, that should not be taken to mean that I’ll only be posting on Thursdays.  If I think of something I want to write about and have the time, there will be additional posts between Thursdays.  This is one of those things that I feel I shouldn’t have to say but will regret it if I don’t.  Sometimes people take the internet too literally.
