On Updating Schedule

Alright, so the past few weeks it has been a bit difficult for me to update this blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Part of that comes from the fact that I have had such a crazy writing schedule outside of the blog, and another part comes from the fact that it is pretty hard to come up with three interesting blog posts in a week. I mean, my life does not seem so entirely interesting that I would need three posts a week to detail it to the world. Of course, rampant laziness is also a factor, but I flatter myself and say it is a small one.

Then again, a blog is always a good form of advertising and marketing, which is something that I will need as Wolfhound gets closer to publication. And I am loathe to lose those few readers that I already have.

So what do you guys think? Should I cut it back to two a week, Tuesday and Thursday, or do you feel I would be cutting myself short? Or are you kind of just ambivalent about the whole thing? Hope all goes well for you guys, and I will see you later.


  1. I see no problem with cutting back as long as you continue to keep a regular schedule. I deliberately chose to update my blog about Joseph's food allergies only once a week for precisely the reasons you state. Then I added a second post a week, when I wanted to participate in a blog event of trying out a new recipe each week. Though I wouldn't feel bad about cutting it back out should life get too hectic.

    So yeah, do what you want. I think the sparsity will help you keep your readers, since you won't be creating as much "fluff" just because you need something to post.


  2. I think the most important thing is quality content, and if writing the blog turns into a chore, I'm sure quality drops. I'm not an expert, but I just post once a week, on Wednesdays. That's enough that it's still fun for me and I can put up something I feel is worth reading. I suppose I also do Twitter, too, which is a great way to get news and connect with other people -- but Twitter takes little time/effort out of my day.
