Recently due to outside forces, my posting schedule has been slim to none and I feel horrible. The first year of my blog I was trying to figure things out. I had no kind of posting consistency. One month I may have 7 posts. The next month 2 or 3. I also had no focus. My posts ranged from television shows, to podcast, music, makeup. Basically whatever tickled my fancy.
On my 1 year blog-a-versary, I decided to buckle down and really dedicate time and attention to my blog and my followers. I decided to come up with a posting schedule. Along with narrowing the topics I post about. It was very difficult maintaining posting about so many different topics. I never officially announced my posting schedule for 2 reasons. The first reason was I wanted to make sure it was something I could maintain before announcing it to the world. Secondly I guess there was some unrecognized fear of commitment. I knew once I announced anything officially I would be committed to sticking with it.
Getting thrown off schedule these past 2 weeks has made me realize how much not only I but you, my followers have gotten used to my posting schedule. Looking at my statistics I found that people visited my site most on the days I’d began regularly posting. Meaning folks had gotten used to my schedule without me having to announce anything. People purposely checked back, looking for new content. Content that has not been there.
Whelp, I am ready! Ready to officially announce and hence commit to a posting schedule (basically the same posting schedule I was abiding by privately lol). I will be posting Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and either Friday’s or Saturday’s. Monday’s will be beauty related. Wednesday’s will be food related. I am still figuring out Friday’s/Saturday’s. I used to post about music but that didn’t really bring much engagement. I also tried featuring my favorite podcast of the week. Again, that really didn’t seem to interest people. Currently there is no set subject for Friday/Saturday’s. This is my free slot to post about whatever. I’m toying with the idea of doing something health related. But we’ll see. I thoroughly enjoy engagement. By engagement I mean comments. I like responding and commenting with people individually who not only read my blog but whose blogs I follow. I feel like it’s the best way to build genuine relationships in this blogsphere.
Thanks for bearing with me as I get this together! I really appreciate it. ❤
If anyone has an ideas of topics or segments for my Friday/Saturday slot. Let me know. I’d be more than happy to give it a try.
