Why Do Daily Blog Posts Kill The Writing Spark?
That Is A Question That Blurred The Line between Creativity And Obligation.
On the other writing platforms, there was a discussion between writers for daily or weekly blog posts. The first group of bloggers insisted people should write daily a few posts. The second group replied one to two times writing per week is enough. Here I write what I think.
I am a perfectionist-oriented person who is a non-English speaker. I post three times weekly, but I write daily on my blog. My reasons for doing that are time-consuming, looking at the details, and keeping the readers curious. In my life, I am the same—no half-done things.
Blog Posts Are Time-Consuming
For me, as a non-English speaker, takes up to 4 hours to write a blog post after doing research, Grammarly check, translating words, and putting down what I think on the WordPress draft. I re-read my work at least 2 times. That makes me sure there are not many errors because I know how irritating is to read poor grammar articles. Usually, I write my first blog post drafts on the weekend and edit them daily. I roster the articles for publishing on the weekdays, after my full-time job, and before Zumba live class. These routines created my weekly writing schedule. I suggest creating to-do lists because that makes people’s coordination easier. For me, it works great, and sharing my experience brings me happiness.
I have many obligations and time management is a must in my life. I believe it is like that for everyone who is not lazy and wants to achieve goals. It doesn’t matter how stressful the working day was, discipline always wins for long-term success. I know my writing speed is not like that of English speakers, but I invest my time into every post I write.
I believe quality wins over quantity because when I receive daily emails for my followed blogs, I see how they sink without the spark from the first time I subscribed.
Daily Writing of Blog Posts in a limited time brings no good.
The Writing Spark is Killed By The Devil When Not Looking At The Details.
There is a saying in my country: “The Devil lies in the details,” and I agree. Even the most meaningful article looks shabby when the details like fonts, subheadings, SEO, and easy reading ability are not met. I become like the Yoast SEO queen because my daily improvement is a must to become a better blogger. I gave a lot of money to WordPress, but I have cultivated many new skills. People learn until they are alive, and I have no regrets about giving away my wealth for my business.
After I create my blog posts for the week, I edit them from the font through SEO and Social Media links. If I do not look at the details, that blog will fade away like my old ones. For a long time, I was blogging on different platforms through different web hosts, but I never dug deep into the topics above, because I cared only about my writing.
Today, I see how wrong I was before and why blogging’s success was not on my side.
The details of every article are important as the content itself. The blog post may take more time to finish and publish, but it is worth the work, in my opinion. I feel proud when I see how my work looks on the site I created. Underestimating the little details brings no pleasure into the reader’s eyes.
Daily Blog Posts do not keep readers’ curiosity – they give expectations, and if not fulfilled – boredom.
Right said I do not like to receive daily blog posts from the bloggers I follow. As time goes by, they start to overwhelm me and become boring. I delete many daily post newsletters from my e-mail. In my opinion, daily blogging makes the blog sink.
I like to be impatient and curious when it comes to reading. That is one of the reasons to post only three times per week. I believe a well-written and informative article is more precious than a daily short posting. Of course, bloggers have their strategy if they treat their blog as a business or brand. Daily writing is a must for everyone involved in the publishing industry, but daily publication is a different topic.
I might look stiff to many readers, but I prefer slower work interest’s build than faster killing the curiosity’s spark.
These three points are my reasons for not posting daily on the blog. I think it works better for writers and readers when there is balance and space to understand the blog post. Professional sites come with rare posting – that is the truth I believe.
The obligation to write is the same as working full-time, with no idea about moving out of that circle. It is important to put love into everything people do, especially when it comes to writing or dancing.
