There is no such thing as over posting. What exists instead is your own personal routine and the routine your readers are used to. Believe it or not… we all don’t share the same methods of blogging and our frequency at posting sometimes shows this difference in outlook. Some bloggers are perfectly happy writing one post a week and having every single subscriber read, like, and comment on each post. That is their goal and standard for blogging. These individuals also put a lot of value into the subscription button because that is who they are catering to with their writing.
I have never blogged that way. I understand why some people do, but that method and form of blogging is not for me and never has been. Although I re-share old posts sometimes, I consider myself a realtime blogger. I call myself that because I constantly write posts, edit once, and then publish them. I enjoy the freedom to express myself in that fashion and my blogging attitude directly reflects my view of this media platform. It is all about quick connections, quick reflections, and realtime posting for me.
Many bloggers have the same standard goal. They want to create a blog or website, establish a readership, and then spend the rest of their days writing for those subscribers who ultimately become their online friends. What this process normally entails is adjusting your method of posting according to where you are in the build process. I’ve always hated that concept, that the number of readers directly affects how I blog. I strive to break that relationship and have always worked to make my blogging uniquely mine. I don’t allow people to affect what I post or how I post it.
Everyone forms their own schedule and method of blogging. I post so much because I am not worried about burying posts or overwhelming my readers. The point here is that my readers, the real readers of this website, understand what this blog is. They know me as the writer and they also probably have a strong grasp of how I operate by now. That, to me, is the goal of blogging. It isn’t so much what we post… but how we post it and if we connect through our sites.
I work for those connections daily.
