How often should I add a new post to my blog?

I was just wondering ...

how often should I add posts to my blog?
I try to post whenever something relevant comes up...
but right now I have 9 posts that are litterally work in progress...with other ideas/inspirations coming in before getting those done!

Do I wait and only post a one in a day? or wait a few days for next post?

is it bad to post more than one in a day? will the early in the day one get missed?

I'm 'new' to blog world.... not sure what draws readers in-

any input???

thanks! and cheerio!
Joes

had a hard time picking an appropriate category for blogging???

  • I follow some blogs and I like it when they blog everyday, even better if more.

  • for sure try to set up a routine so people know how often to go to your site (it could be daily, biweekly, or weekly).. i would post 1-3 topics at one time... Remember their may be a time your low on interesting things to post & may need some back-up stuff.

  • Mine is a cooking blog so I update it almost every day. I have seen others that are just occasional meandering on life. So you can do that. Photos are great to add, post the link for your blog here so we can see it!

  • I have several blogs and I post weekly on most, but more often on others. My blogs are about crafts, coloring pages and clip art, so my posts are seasonal and have links to printables, paper crafts and patterns for upcoming holidays. I offer a subscribe button and a follow button on my blogs so anyone who wants to keep on top of what's new will know whenever I post a new topic or freebie.

  • I have two blogs one rubber stamping one another is for my hubby real estate. What is the goal of your blog? Is it just to talk about what is interesting to you? Then there are no rules. BUT if you want to gain a following then you may need to be more regular. I try to post 2 to 3 times a week. Now don't get me wrong there are good weeks and bad weeks. What saves me is... I write my blogs at night and then set them to post throughout the week. Most blogging sites allow you to set the post date. So I'll write 3 blog posts in one sitting! Much easier that way. If you have any questions PM me.
