The Pros & Cons Of Daily Blogging
As I've been producing daily content for around 18 months or so I feel like I really understand the process of it. Personally, I love producing daily blog posts, it's pushed me to work so much harder as well as a bunch of other positive aspects to blogging but there are a few cons that come along with it and I wanted to share both sides of the coin with you today.
- It's instantly rewarding.
- You don't run out of idea's, you actually get more.
- It teaches you what content you're truly passionate about.
- You hone in on your strengths and weaknesses.
- It teaches you great time management skills.
& ON A PERSONAL NOTE
It's rare as bloggers we get to talk about our posting schedule, but I love posting every single day. Of course, there will be a time where I probably won't want to but for right now I absolutely adore it. I'd been blogging every other day consistently for around 8 months or so before deciding I wanted to create daily content. It was a super easy decision, my mind was full of ideas and I really missed blogging on the days that I didn't publish anything so it just felt like a natural decision to increase my posting schedule.
Daily content is something that has really worked for me and my blog, but it's not for everyone. I often think people wonder if they have to post daily to build a following and it's not true. Of course, writing a blog means that I read blogs to. It's not a blogs posting schedule that attracts me to it, it's high-quality content and a little bit of personality too. It's super easy to feel the pressure when it comes to blogging, but you have to do it in a way that works for you and your schedule.
- It's addictive.
- As rewarding as it can be it's hard work.
- You lose track of the posts that you've written before.
& ON A PERSONAL NOTE
Personally, there are really are no big negatives when it comes to daily content. The biggest hurdle to overcome is not letting your posts become stagnant and I know I've fallen into that trap a few times. Coming up with fresh and innovative ideas every single day isn't easy by any means but I still try and give my blog as much as I possibly can. Another con I've found that posting so much is that you get very little breathing room between content. Of course, I choose my posting schedule so this isn't a complaint by any means it's more just an observation.
