    5 tips to maintain your blog post frequency:

    Decide when to update

    Blogging without plans never gives you expected results. You must plan all your blogging activities including writing articles. Decide how many articles you want to write for your blog, it doesn’t matter that you decide to post 3 articles in a week or 3 articles in a day. You just need to stick with what you have decided, this way your readers will know when you update your blog and will expect the articles accordingly.

    Write on Weekends

    If you are a part time blogger or a professional blogger who is busy with other work like providing other blogging services then there might be chance that you even won’t get time to write 3 articles in a week. For this, you need to spend your time on weekend and write all 3 posts and schedule them for later. This way you don’t have to worry about publishing post on weekdays.

    Choose topics for next day

    If you want to update your blog daily then it would be better to select the topic of the article before one day. It is better for the bloggers who waste their time in searching for topic and at last when they get the topic, the entire mood vanishes to write the article. I always prefer to select the topic in advance, this helps me to start fresh while writing articles. Everything seems to be organized and scheduled.

    Write whenever you get ideas

    I am sure all the bloggers keep on thinking about blog post ideas. If you get any idea about article then either note down it or if you are free than start writing the article same time. Whenever idea strikes to our mind, it is the perfect time to write it down because we get good flow of thoughts and thus can write article fast and better.

    Schedule in advance

    It’s always recommended that you must schedule your articles in advance. No matter you are a full time blogger or part time blogger, we all are social people and their might be chances that you get busy and can’t publish your post which you have already drafted. Thus, make a habit to schedule at least 3 posts so that even if you are busy with other work, you won’t lose your readers who visit your blog regularly.

    I hope you will find the tips effective for maintaining blog post frequency. If I am missing any tip please share in comments, I would love to learn more tips from you.

    Very good point Ruchi! I personally can relate with the point of “Write whenever you get ideas”. I find that I often write many of my posts together. At the very least, I’ll place the opening topics of a post or two down on a Word document before I forget about the topic.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this post!

    Best Regards,

    Gil

    Right Gil, Even I do the same. For me the toughest job is to find useful topic thus I also note down the topic as soon as I get idea and a few intro lines so that I don’t forget what exactly I have to cover in articles.
    Glad you like the post.

    Nice tips. Maintaining proper time gap between posts too is important. Publishing 5 posts within a minute might leave your visitors overwhelmed and confused, as to which topic to go for, when they have limited time to spend.

    This is one job I always fail to do in a perfect manner. One time I post to my heart’s content and the other time I forget posting for months altogether.

    I write about making blogging a habit, but seldom do I follow it.

    I really Loved the point that says “Write Whenever you Get Ideas”, Love this one and personally apply it on me,
    Sometimes my mother get angry on me. My PC table always remain scribbled, I usually Sit blank for a while after i close my computer. And IF an idea hits my mind without wasting a second, if i don’t get a paper nearby and nor do i wait to switch on my computer. I pick up my pencil and start writing whatever place i get (my table usually). Sometimes even at nights i wake up to drink water and if i get any idea, I immediately pick up my sticky pad write on it, Paste a paper on my board and sometimes even Save ideas in my cellphone’s SMS drafts.
    Really Loved this one.
