Why You Should Write Blog Posts on a Regular Basis

If you are a blog owner, you should post articles and other content on your blog regularly. How often you should post depends on your niche and your following. You need to keep track of your visitors, where they are navigating to on your blog and how often they return. You do this by getting subscribers. You can track the percentage of subscribers as well as unsubscribers to see how often you post to your blog.

You may be posting too many posts if you see a lot of people unsubscribe to your blog every day. You can change the frequency of your blog posts by keeping an eye on it. Not posting often enough is usually the problem blog owners have though.

Another problem bloggers run into is creating content that is intriguing and "draws a reader in" to want to read more. Sometimes it is hard to think of ways to do this and bloggers continue to just post information about their niche, products, or services.

You are supposed to do this, but there are other techniques to grab a reader's attention. For instance, you want the blog to be personable and write in such a way it is like you are talking to the reader. You can write a story of something that happens to you each day, or a current event that is happening in the world.

These stories are great to add to your blog, but do remember you want the content to be evergreen. You can create content that doesn't include specific dates if you don't know what it means. It is written as if it was just yesterday. This will make your content feel fresh and current. You just need to create a few stories about important events in your life that you want to share on your blog. These stories can be scheduled to go out on your social media platforms. Your content should be scheduled at least a week in advance to get the best results. It is recommended to create about seven to ten articles beforehand. Then when you are ready and have content prepared and edited, schedule the dates they should be posted. WordPress offers a way to do this.

Your content will be published once it is ready. It will then post at the time and date you have set. When your readers look at it, they will see content being frequently posted and know you are constantly updating your blog. Your audience may be limited by only posting to one blog. Many people use Blogger or another blog software. It is a good idea - if you only have WordPress - to have a Blogger account.

Having more than one blog can seem like a chore; however, there are a variety of tools out there to help you keep both filled with content. There are tools that allow you to set up multiple blogs at once. You also have plugins in WordPress that will allow you to do this as well. It cuts down the time it takes to post to all of your accounts separately.

Now that you have this established and set up, you will find you need to let people know you are posting to your blog and also let some people know that you have a blog in the first place. This can be done using tools and plugins that are available online and on WordPress. There are tools when you make a blog post, it will automatically tweet the announcement or update your status on Facebook.

Although there is no way to automate everything, there are some tools that allow you schedule posts in advance. So as you plan your business and what you are going to write, you can add these posts to a tool and schedule the date and time you want people to see it. You should also schedule the times so that they correspond with the hours most people will be able to see your posts.

Always remember, people want instant gratification. It all depends on how you view it. Some people think there is no way, while others believe there is. This part of us as human beings is what you want to be. These are the people who have more sales, more fans and more ideas.
