There seems to be a lot of waiting going on in Blogland these days.
Maggie is waiting for news and rambling. Christine is struggling as she waits for the call. And Martin is enduring the worst kind of waiting imaginable. Becky is biding her time doing the meme thing. And That Girl’s having computer woes.
So you come here after a breathless week of waiting and get . . . not much I’m afraid.
Skellie’s advice is usually dead on. So I sighed loud enough to wake the cat when I read this:
Assuming that you have enough time to produce as much content as you would like, the ideal post frequency for a small readership blog is probably once every two days.
I’ve failed you, dear reader. Not only am I not posting enough, as of today the quality takes a nosedive as well.
Fear not. I have many interesting things I’d like to write about. I have an eloquent and insightful draft about the power of inclination in regards to religious belief. There are beginnings of posts about further dimensions of my weight-loss journey simmering on the back burner. Posts about the kids? Yeah, I’ve got a few of those I could publish as well.
But lately, nothing is taking shape. And time is limited since school is back in session and work is squeezing this turnip a bit too tightly. A friend of a friend once scolded me for not writing enough. Writers write, he said. And since I wasn’t writing, I obviously didn’t want to be a writer. I remember being simultaneously offended and outed as a poseur.
Skellie did have the heart to add this, however:
In reality, if you can’t sustain quality content at this frequency then your ideal frequency would be as regularly as you can manage while maintaining peak quality.
Peak quality. That’s what I’m shooting for. And lately it just isn’t coming. So you’re gonna have to wait . . .
