I have read lots of ideas about how often to post and when. Many suggest that you can post too much, and that blogging every day isn’t always a good thing.
Here are my main reasons for blogging daily
1) I have a lot in my head that needs to be vented
This blog is one way that I can express myself. I feel that this is a positive thing to do. I am a creative person and writing is just one way that I can be creative.
2) I write about different things and spread the posts across the week
I post about craft on a Monday, photography on Wednesday, my favourite something on a Friday, once a month I have a Social Saturday and every Sunday I share a short video clip. In between I post about any subject I choose.
3) It gives me a routine
In addition to the above number 2 reason, it gives me something different to do everyday. It doesn’t overwhelm me when I am unwell because I make use of draft posts and scheduling. It helps distract me if I need a distraction. Part of my routine is reading other blogs and commenting as well, so I feel like I am part of a community.
4) My blog is like my notebook
If I think of something I want to write about, I can quickly open the WordPress app on my phone and start a draft post. Sometimes that might just be the title, just so I don’t forget an idea. I will come back to it later and add the detail if it is something I want to share. That is exactly how this post started.
5) It’s my blog and I’ll write if I want to
Although this is number 5, it is probably the most important one. I blog, because I want to. I write everyday, because I want to. I am not trying to monetise my blog, I am not trying to go viral, and I am not after hundreds of subscribers. I read blogging tips and I decide if they are relevant to what I want to do, rather than thinking I should do XYZ because ‘A Famous Blogger’ said so.
