I have had lots of bloggers ask me my opinion on how many days they should post, so I thought I’d open it up on the blog. I typically post 5 days a week, but that’s because I’ve worked out a system that allows me to do so (more on this on a future Blogger Tip Tuesday). So how many days a week should you post?
To be frank, I don’t think it matters how many days you post (within reason). I think it’s most important that you figure out how many days you can post consistently and work from there. Lots of bloggers find that posting 3 days a week is a good compromise for them. I would say that if you are just starting out, try posting 2-3 days a week. Be consistent with those days and see how it works into your schedule. If, after a couple months of posting a few days a week, you are ready to add another day of posts, go for it.
Think about your favorite blogs. Chances are they all have different posting schedules. I truly think it’s much more important to be consistent with whatever posting schedule you set and not worry about how many days you are posting each week. Bottom line: if you are just starting out, post 2-3 days a week and see how that works for you. Adjust as necessary but keep consistency as a priority!
