Quality over Quantity. As a rule I normally will only post one time each day. Part of the reason is to meet a challenge such as the A to Z which asks you to post for each letter of the alphabet. Otherwise it is because I just love to write and put it out there for others to read and give feedback. I try to give each post some thorough consideration before I take my time to create something. I know well as anyone how limited time to read can be. If I give a quality post most of the time people will search for it.
I see a lot of blogging sites where there are a multitude of posts: Quantity. Of course some are small posts or picture posts. Others are when people try to answer a lot of prompts. That is more time than I have to devote to blogging. Also, to be honest, I am not versatile enough to blog on every subject out there. I mean look at the Reader and the sheer breadth of topics. Who has that much knowledge?
To me a quality posts is one whose lifespan will be longer than a few days or weeks. That is why you won’t see me give my two cents on the Boston Marathon tragedy. I have no original thought and it will be replaced in time just like the fiscal cliff discussion and the Newtown tragedy. Evergreen posts is what they called it. The kind of posts that no matter how long it is past your publish date it still is relevant.
If you are able to crank out multiple quality posts every day I congratulate you. I read a lot of good posts every day. I try to comment on anything I read, especially when it introduces a new idea or explains an area of knowledge I lack. The reason I do this is because it is a quality post to me that changes my overall knowledge. Don’t stop blogging just make sure when you blog it is worth your reader’s time.
