TO BLOG OR NOT TO BLOG. That’s not the question.
How often to blog, that’s the question.
I may not make any changes whatsoever, keeping my current approach of one blog post every workday, Monday through Friday.
But it takes a fair amount of time to write a weekday blog, I’ve discovered. Often, about two hours a day.
It also takes a fair amount of commitment from a reader to read a weekday blog.
I’ve been tracking the number of readers, and I’m thinking Friday is Dead Day. That’s when the fewest number of readers go to the page.
My Monday feature, the Bible Question of the Week, seems to be the most popular. Beyond that, I’m not seeing much of a pattern as it relates to days of the week. It just seems that some blog posts strike a nerve, and some don’t.
I’m about to enter a stage of working on a couple of book projects that will take a lot of time. I could make good use of those two blogging hours each day, diverting them to the book projects.
Here’s what I’m wondering.
Should I go with just the Monday blog post, featuring the Question of the Week?
Or should I do more than one?
Perhaps Monday through Thursday.
Or maybe just Monday and Wednesday.
Or perhaps just when I feel I have something interesting to say.
At this point I’m in the brainstorming mode.
As I said, I may not make any changes at all.
But, frankly, at the moment I’m leaning pretty strongly toward pushing Friday off a short pier.
Then again, I could do something like giving you a Bible verse for the weekend—a “spiritual cookie,” instead of a “fortune cookie.”
Still brainstorming as I type.
Care to brainstorm with me?
