This is one question that is perhaps while incorrectly phrased but still something that is been lingering in my mind …
Can you take a weekend off without loosing your audience?
I generally try to program at least one post to go live on weekend to retain the consistence of posting but like this extended weekend I failed to follow through.
Blogging is as much commitment to post what is expected from you, as it is fun. You are expected to produce information and produce it at predictable intervals but what if you just taking time off?
How does it affect your readership?
I would love to hear your opinion!
And while I didn’t write anything myself this weekend I took the time in the evening to read some other excellent posts from the blogs I subscribe (I had a backlog of several hundred posts in my RSS Reader) and want to share with your some articles I found to be more then simply interesting:
- Moving The Free Line – by Yaro Starak goes into details of Internet Marketing sales funnel. If you think it doesn’t apply to you – think again! … but first I recommend you read the article.
- The Secret to Massive Digg/StumbleUpon Traffic Without Spamming – by ME “Liz” Strauss goes into one of the best tutorials on generatng traffic from social networks and doing it consistently.
- 100 Blog Topics I Hope YOU Write – by Chris Brogan gives you a collection of 100 topics you can swipe and write about. Running low on ideas? Here is your resource …
- Google Pagerank Update: Who Cares? – by Jack Humphrey nails the current issue with Google PR and I personally liked it because it confirms my own thoughts I shared in post last week.
- Get 1000s of Visitors in a Month Using Videos by Sean provides you with a step-by-step guidance to using videos for generating traffic.
And here are a few plugins for your WordPress blog that are wel worth installing:
- Notify Unconfirmed Subscribers is a must have for anyone offering email subscription via FeedBurner. It provides you with a simple interface to send a custom email to people who attempted to subscribe and didn’t confirm.
- Categories Autolink does one thing and does it well – creates links to your categories from within content when matching category name is found.
Enjoy the reading and please provide me with feedback on your experience with taking time off!
