Over Enthusiastic Blogger

Posted on

So I’ve been re-assessing the way I blog and realised that I’ve been going a little crazy on the posts lately. I read up on some tips and it said that it’s better that you DON’T blog on a daily basis because it can overload your audience (and I don’t want to do this). I thought I was being clever by being so regular (with my posts). I have also realised that because I have blogged so much over the past week or so it looks like my posts are starting to lose meaning and therefore becoming a little pointless.

The quality of my posts have taken a battering as I have noticed when comparing older posts to newer posts. I suppose sometimes you have to take a step back to discover what’s been going wrong. I’m not saying that what I have posted lately is a load of rubbish but it’s just lacking in quantity and detail. I read that the ideal length of a post is 700 words long… too much and it could get boring, too little and it won’t attract people back to your blog. There’s more to this blogging lark than I originally thought and I’m obviously still learning. But to start off with, I’m going to stop with the daily blogging and maybe post every couple of days.

As with the 700 word count thing, I don’t want to push my luck too much and end up rambling on just to reach a target. I’ll just end up boring you and boring myself at the same time. Do you agree with these tips? should I even bother following what others say? Do you follow any useful blogging tips? I’d certainly appreciate some feedback on this slightly confusing topic.

1 year Anniversary

Posted on

I don’t often publish two blog posts in the same day but seeing as WordPress have just kindly informed me that I started my blog a year ago today It would be rude of me to let it go un-noticed. I have so far enjoyed blogging immensely and have surprised myself by being consistent which I was a little apprehensive about to begin with. I have stuck to it and as a result have become a typical blogger. I’m always thinking about my next potential blog. When I’m out and about or even at work, I’ll have idea’s whirling around in my head. Sometimes I won’t go out without my camera in case I come across something that I can include in a blog post. I plan upcoming events so that I have something interesting to blog about. I am officially an obsessive blogger.

I decided that I wouldn’t write daily blogs as I would run out of things to say and it would become boring for the readers and I continue to stick by my rule. I would like to say a huge thank you to my followers, I have appreciated every single like and comment I have received. I will carry on blogging for as long as I’m getting views and already 2013 holds many great blogging opportunities for me which I’m very excited about. See you in my next blog post… over and out 😛
