Some blogging tips suggest that one should post a minimum of a post a day; sometimes more if they want their blog to reach top ranking. After 3 years of blogging, there is no right or wrong way to blog ‘cos it really depends on you and what you want to achieve with your blog.
My belief is post quality over quantity. As long as you are putting up good quality content on your blog, that’s all that matters. The content should be relevant, informative, and intrigue your reader enough to want to leave you with interesting & interactive comments.
Make it your blogging goal to post quality over quantity. I rather have a handful of meaningful posts than 30 posts that lack any sort of depth. Others believe that Quantity matters too – check out what Jan Wong has to say in ‘Quality over Quantity, Really ?’
I noticed that when I started ending my blog posts with questions to my readers – the conversation on my blog increased. You can’t be shy at blogging – so why not come right out and ask your readers direct questions related to your post topic which will encourage them to respond and therefore also get some of your anonymous readers to de-lurk.
Do you question your readers directly or indirectly ? Which one works better for you ? Or do you sort of place the question between your post and hope someone responds to it ?
Personally I find that quotes can be very inspirational and can always be linked into a blog post or used to create a brand new post. Do you use quotes at all ?
During the course of the A to Z Challenge, blogger Gillian of A Daft Scots Lass has been putting up some great ‘mottos’ (and some quirky quotes) for each letter of the alphabet. Make sure you check them out and follow her on Twitter whilst you’re at it @ADaftScot
On that note, I’ll leave you with 3 quotes I came across and thought were pretty apt for this post.
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
