One thing that new bloggers and some “older bloggers” will tend to harp on is “over posting.” It is a shame that the veteran bloggers haven’t figured this out yet, but there is no such thing as over posting. There are ways for readers to control what they see and also for bloggers to control WHAT is seen. That is where tricks with scheduling, making a post a sticky, and referral links come into play.
I absolutely hate when people say “quality rather than quantity.” Bloggers that are able to habitually spit out post after post are not sacrificing quality. They aren’t wasting words, eating up the blogosphere, or monopolizing the internet. People that say such things are just stupid as shit and obviously jealous. They normally don’t process information or lines of thought as easily as the bloggers they bash and thus their opinion of those bloggers is fermented in their small mindedness. That is their problem not the issue of bloggers like me.
One misconception that people have is that posting frequently is “powerblogging.” It is not powerblogging. I post frequently because if I don’t I grow frustrated with a crowded mind. It isn’t anger over losing a great train of thought either, it is simply wishing to release. That is what I do when I blog and half the time I think my fingers know better than I what I wish to say. Powerblogging is pushing your website, blog, or product in front of the greatest audience possible. That is ALL it is to me.
I write shorts and I think I write them well. I have developed my own style with the “short write” and I appreciate the skill it takes to make such a post. To the untrained eye they appear random and possibly like thought farts, but they honestly take a lot more effort than many would suspect. To clearly provide your opinions and then draw them into conclusion at the end all under 750 – 1000 words takes practice. I will say it one more time. IT TAKES PRACTICE.
I post frequently to flex. You may not be familiar with the term and I am using it for my own purpose, but I “flex” when I practice. Every post this past two years has been practice and that is why I harp on the concept that there is no such thing as over publishing. I won’t ever believe that. If another light is outshining you then you don’t get recognized by complaining how bright it is. You figure out how to make yours brighter.
