Blogging has completely revolutionized the way our world gets, shares, and contributes knowledge and information to the general public – maybe one of the most important technologies and tools ever created in human history.
It’s almost amazing to consider exactly how different our world has begun to view blogs in just the last few years. It wasn’t all that long ago that “bloggers” were ridiculed mercilessly on a regular basis, widely considered to be nothing more than long-haired antisocial people using the web to lash out at their “enemies”.
However, it’s impossible to become a recognized, influential, and important journalist (or business leader, for that matter) without having a blog today – and there may not be a more efficient way to create amazing influence than by diving headfirst into the world of blogging.
A blogging schedule is a must to create real influence
All that being said, without a proper blogging schedule and a regular and consistent flood and flow of blogs it’s impossible to create a real following or any influence online.
Even if you’re able to create absolute masterpieces of information and publish them on your blog, if there is not a right more recent as to the consistency of your releases you’re never going to develop a real and serious following. Without this following, you’ll be little more than a collection of “one-hit wonders”, never fully realizing all of the potential you can tap into when you decide to become more consistent.
It doesn’t matter how often you post, it only matters that it’s consistent
The most important thing to take away from this article about blogging schedules is that there’s little difference between posting once a day, once a week, or even once every two weeks (though we would recommend you go any longer than that between posts) when it comes right down to it.
No, the most important thing you can do when looking to generate power and influence through your blog (after all, isn’t that the reason that we’re blogging in the first place) is to create a consistent pattern that your readers can rely on a regular basis.
If you have condition your readers to get information on a daily basis and then decide to switch things up to a weekly posting, you’re going to throw a serious monkeywrench into the works and maybe destroy a lot of the goodwill that you’ve generated in the past.
Try to create a schedule that works for you (and whatever you do, continue to write daily so you never really lose the “edge” – even if you don’t plan to publish daily) and stick to it as best you can.
Another effective tool to create a real readership base is to have an email newsletter that publishes updates as to when new blog posts are being released – you can also use social media and a handful of other tools to do the same thing. Just again make sure that you are staying consistent and reliable across the board.
Blogging allows you to literally impact and influence the minds of hundreds of millions of people all over the globe with very little effort whatsoever, so don’t ignore its power. Create a blogging schedule that works for you and deliver, deliver, deliver.
