    The problem is a lot of people get in the mindset that blogging should be a chore. I have seen a lot of bloggers just avoid going out of their inner circle to get advice and just fade out from the blog scene. It is terrible and only tells me that they got on because they thought having a website was a cool idea at first, but did not think how much effort it took to keep it up, let alone network it out there in the social streams.

    I hope you do not mind me blogging a follow-up and giving you some link love back.

    Harsh, you are really cool Indian Blogger and in related to the question you made this post more helpful with a “Blog Carnival” … Uff! Awesome!!

    The Tips in regarding the Post Frequency is :
    Maintain a perfect time! You don’t have to be like a machine which forcefully posts 6-5 post a day. Keep your time and if possible create a post in 2days, which will gain your readers but keep a descriptive content. I know, you are thinking… How this could increase your readers? But i must say you that, posting a helpful and descriptive long contents works similar to 6-post a day! :) Just give it a try…

    Maintaining the post frequency & focus are the two biggest hurdles of any part time blogger. So, I try to post once in a week.

    I blog daily which is quite difficult since my studies are going on. I post 3-4 times a day but my content length varies.

    I don’t know i will think about SEM when i get 100 posts and reader base.
