Oh, hey. I’m Corrin and I blog at (surprise!) Oh Hey. I’m beyond excited to be in the hot seat for the blogger Q&A (there’s few things I love to talk about more than blogging). And I’m beyond nervous that no one will have any questions (or, let’s face it, no one will want to hear my answers).
So I was thrilled when I saw fellow blogger Kathy Bradshaw from Southern Made in the Shade share her goals for #BlogathonATX and some of the questions she’d like to have answered (See her post, “Introduction and Questions.”). I thought I’d answer one of her questions here on the BlogathonATX blog so you get a feel for the kind of blogger that I am and a sneak peak at the things we’ll discuss in the Q&A.
First, a disclaimer of sorts. I’ve been blogging for ten years and I work with bloggers on a daily basis, so I think (re: hope) my opinions have some value; but they are just that, opinions. There’s no magic formula for becoming a “successful” blogger. I take a slow-and-steady approach to blogging and my mantra is “do it because you love it,” so you won’t get any get-rich-quick blogging schemes from me. Here goes…
Is it best to limit the amount of posts a blogger does weekly?
I think the key is consistency and quality. Limiting the number of posts or holding yourself to a quota doesn’t address the issue of quality. The real question is, how often am I able to post quality content? Whether that’s three times a week, once a week, or once a month is for you (and your readers) to decide. Whatever it is, stick to it so your readers know when to expect fresh content and begin to seek it out.
Also consider whether you have enough material to sustain the blogging pace that you decide on (consider this a little foreshadowing for our discussion on editorial calendars) and (here comes the wooey-wooey) if you’re going to be happy and fulfilled with the direction that your blog is headed. Cause if the blogger ain’t happy, ain’t nobody (readers/sponsors/friends and lovers) happy.
I hope you’ll join me at the blogger Q&A at 4:30 sharp! See you then!
