By Faruque Ahamed Mollick

Bloggers often eager to know how often a blog should be updated or how often new post should be added on a blog. There are several popular blog which have different frequency of posting blog. Some bloggers post only one or two article per week whereas some bloggers post daily. All the blogs have their own rules, routine and time frequency of posting new content and for new bloggers this is really a confusion.

So what should you do? How often should you write post on your blog?

Here in this article I am going to discuss about frequency of blogging or how frequently should you blog. I am going to tell you how often you need to write and publish new content on our blog site.

In the very first I want to say that how often you need to publish new post is depend on various things or factors that decide a blog how often it should add new content. These are given below:

Niche and type of the blog

Blog niche is one of the major factor which decide how often should you write new content for your blog. If you have a news-focused blog then you need to publish content multiple times daily. For a news type blog where all kind of news available, you should write minimum three article daily. This is also applied for a gossip blog. You need to post several time in a day as any time there is breaking news or gossip available that you need to cover. So for this type of blog you need to post very frequently.

For a food blog you can post only one or two article per week. Also if you have a travel blog which contain your experience of traveling then you can update your blog one per week as it is based on your travel experience. If you want to update daily on a blog with your travel experience then I think it is not possible for you to travel everyday.

Similarly if you have a blog that is seasonal type, such as a gardening blog, you may post new content very frequently during the spring and summer and less frequently during the winter when very less people are planting and harvesting.

Now think about beauty and fashion blog. How often a beauty and fashion niche blog should be updated? My guess two or three post per week is enough for a beauty and fashion blog.

So obviously it is clear that blogging frequency is depend on the type or niche of that blog.

How often should you write post if your blog is new?

For new blog, whatever the niche or type of your blog, you need to increase the number of post on your blog. So for a new blog you need to add new content very frequently until your blog have sufficient amount of post. After you have sufficient number of post on your blog, you can write depending on the niche of your blog. Remember, you have to setup your new blog in a position and to do it you can do hard work at the starting.

From a reader point of view

As a reader, I will prefer a blog that are not posting so much frequently because, if I am a regular visitors of a blog I may not follow each post if the blog update so much frequently. Also if I have subscribed for new post update, I may feel disturbed and then I will just unsubscribe from that blog. Well, for a news or gossip blog the thing is different. You obviously have to write multiple times in one day for news and gossip blog. But for any other types of blog don’t post too much frequently that the reader unsubscribe from your blog. Regular visitors are so much precious for a blog. Posting too often will decrease reader engagement of your blog.

In the end I want to say one thing, always remember that quality is better than quantity. It is better to write three quality blog in a week than writing one low quality blog daily. So don’t try to write more frequently if the quality of your writing become poor for this. Search engine always like quality content on a blog site.
