Alice’s pills #2 – How Often Should You Post?

Down, down, down. Would the fall NEVER come to an end! ‘I wonder how many miles I’ve fallen by this time?’ she said aloud. ‘I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think—’ (for, you see, Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a VERY good opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over)

We often hear /read how important it is to post at least every day. Is it really so?

How often?

There is exactly one answer.
One perfect number of posts you wish you receive every week. Or every day. Do you know it, right?

This is the problem, you see: Only YOU (the reader) know your own desire, how often you want to receive an update, a new fresh story, something to dull with. And the timespan changes often, depending on how busy you are, how needy of fresh ideas, or relax.

No one knows better than you.
So? How can you deal with it?
Depends who you are.

Dear Reader:

I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy writing for you, as often as I do.

  1. If so, happy 2012 to both of us.
  2. Otherwise, if you feel the urge to receive more updates, or new ideas, or “pun” articles, talk straight to me (the writer) with a comment, or an email, or clicking on contacts near the menus. Or surf on internet (i.e. wordpress tag) to find more content to fill your need
  3. In the worst case, which is if you receive too many articles, too often, too long posts, I (the writer) am quite sorry to bother you with an overflow of stuff you don’t desire. May I suggest that you
    • a) customize how often you want to receive updates;
    • b) read just one post over many and delete all the others I’ll feel the pressure to write good ones to match your random choice;
    • c) write to me (the writer) to propose me to slow down;
    • d) unsubscribe, so I can feel there is something wrong with my free time spent on posts

Dear Writer:

I know you enjoy writing for me more than I do, reading your stuff, otherwise I wouldn’t understand why you waste so much time (2-4 hours), to write some fluffy article that I read or skim in a few minutes.

I personally like to read every week some new content, quality content, up to max one article a day. No more. I’m busy, you know. We already match?

  1. If so, happy 2012 to both of us. I’ll enjoy your stories.
  2. Otherwise, if you feel the urge to write so often, more than I have time to read it, try to put out just good stuff, not for the sake to write, but for the sake of quality
  3. If you write very rarely, it is not really a bad thing. I’ll put your website on my RSS reader and when it shows up a new post: I’ll be happy yo read you! But don’t let me forget completely who you are…or next time I’ll see a post from Frank79SpecialWhatever, maybe I’ll think it is a spam…
