I have a general question to ask about blogging. As I read more and more blogs, It is somewhat confusing about the number of entries a blogger should make.
I have a friend who is a very successful business person and his company owns several well-known web pages. He believes the blogger needs to publish as many entries as time and effort allows. Not every entry needs to be an original piece. I have heard this concept from many sources.
The common refrain is ” You need to be out there or else your blog hits will suffer. ” If you are trying to make money, clearly you need a very active audience who will visit your site almost daily.
Other bloggers seem to think the content is so important that if it is not of outstanding quality and design , your audience might read your stuff but eventually fade away.
My stuff is geared to a particular type of audience so the blog hits will probably never be in the stratosphere. As my site has made a steady climb in attracting an audience I hope to grow a viable on-line business.
Some of the blogs/websites I read on a steady basis have no intention to be a money site. They seem to be OK with the scope and shape of their entries. I have put several affiliate sponsors on my pages which should bring income to my overall design.
However I still want to present quality entries to my site whether it is of original content other people’s work or news.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
