How Many Blog Posts Should I Write?

{ Posted on Apr 11 2010 by Marcus Alston }

I have been trying to write a post a day since I started this blog in late March 2010.  I based this on my review of a few highly regarded blogs in the personal finance space that I found interesting and informative.

After consulting with my brother (Carlos Alston) who is an experienced social media expert (and helped me get this blog running on Word Press) and reading many more personal finance blogs, I have decided that I will focus more on getting the word out about what I believe (and hope) is great content on my blog through various mediums such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.  I also plan to network more with other personal finance bloggers.  As a result, I will spend a little less time on writing blog posts.  Instead of writing 7 posts a week, I expect to write 2 to 4 a week.  This will also give my readers more time to catch up on the articles that I do write and more time to comment before another article arrives to (hopefully) grab their attention.

How many posts a blogger should write varies on your goal and time.  For me, I want as many readers to read my new blog as possible and want the content to remain strong.  I want to help provide information on how to spend wisely (and spend less), reduce debt, save more, and increase wealth.  As this blog is new, in order for me to do this, I have learned that I need to spend more time focused on the social media and web marketing aspects of running a blog.  Because if no one reads your blog, your great content will not be shared with others.  And is this not the goal, to share your thoughts, opinions, and recommendations with others?

Until my next post, be well, and please enjoy the other articles I have written on the site.

  1. Pithy rather than prolific.

  2. Denis, thanks for all the support. I have not been blogging long, but I do enjoy it. I have to pull myself away from writing and work on the other aspects of running the blog in order to ultimately reach more people, which is my goal. I guess like in any business, there are somethings you prefer to do more than others, but its those other things that must get done as well in order for the business to succeed.
