I’ve spent the week crafting 2-3 posts to publish next on my blog. This is not one of them.
Blogging consistently makes a difference in the quality of your posts and the amount of traffic your blog drives.
The more you write, the better you write. Writing takes practice. Blogging is a multifaceted medium that combines words and images. Developing your skills means you need to invest time in order to grow adept at crafting your posts. It’s not something that “just happens” anymore than you can pick up a paintbrush and be Picasso.
Posting consistently drives traffic because new material draws people’s attention, particularly if they regularly follow your blog. Consistency breeds engagement with your audience. They grow more comfortable with you over time and become more reticent to share their thoughts, insights, and experiences. Consistency builds trust. Trust translates into a growing audience and greater engagement.
This is all true of course if you aren’t a celebrity. If you’re any kind of famous and mildly influential then people will do all kinds of whacked out things to be part of your crew. Let’s face it: Matthew McConaughey can post about his favorite pretzel and draw more traffic than you and I can posting about anything.
So there it is: my post. Blogging, like any endeavor requires commitment and discipline if we are expecting any growth in either our writing or our audience.
Cheers to you as you pursue your blogging!
