The Blogger’s Dilemma

I am still unsure as to how often to post something new – maybe you can help me?

I’ve been posting a fresh post every day for around 50 days. But I don’t want to repel you, the reader.

So many of us are pushed for time. In the midst of working long hours, our inbox is forever being replenished.

Some of it will go straight into the bin; other stuff we save for a rainy day. We want to read it, but we just don’t have the time.

The pile grows and grows and we end up forgetting what we’ve saved.

Finally, the day comes when we sift through it all. But it’s too much to take in. Some of it we can’t remember why it’s even in the saved pile.

After a sigh of defeat, we press delete.

But it kind of feels good to have a spring clean.

Now, all those articles we knew we wanted to read someday have gone.

And the guilt and the pressure for not finding the time to read them has gone also.

But then the process starts again.

So as someone who’s potentially filling your inbox, what should I do?

I’m considering posting three times a week… with some inspirational fillers in between.

What do you think?

Is that too much?

Are you too busy to read everything you receive?

Would you prefer less?


Or is it okay the way it is?

If you are a fellow blogger, what do you do? What works best for you?

Any advice you’d like to share?


By the way, I would just like to shout out to all of you who like, follow, share and subscribe. I haven’t been on WP long, so it’s great to have you on this journey with me.

Thank you.

I really appreciate it.

What’s a writer without a reader?


Have a great weekend.

Thanks again.

I will leave you with this simple reminder.

  1. Really Gavin, what you do is for you. What matters is your motive for writing. If you are trying to teach people something that you think offers a different perspective unlike anyone elses…then share till ya hearts content.
    This is about you and how it feels to you.


    I personally just don’t feel any enthusiasm or real passion in your writing..
    You seem just a bit too calm for my taste.
    If you are excited about life and living..then express it.
    Write about what you are truly passionate about, what pisses you off, what you absolutely love about life…put some emotion into it.
    “I was so excited when my wife brought home a pie” vs “My wife brought home a pie.”
    Writing everyday may get monotonous.
    Spontaneously share your life experiences and you should never have to “think” about something to write about.

    That’s my take hun. Wishing you much success.
