posting queue

I have been pretty faithful posting on my blog every third day. When I think of something to blog about I put it in the queue so it automatically posts on a given date.

I now think I will now change to posting every fourth day.
I don't want to bore anyone!
How often do you post on your blog?



Some blogs I read post every day, some once a week and some on no particular schedule. Some bloggers take extended breaks and I am always glad when they return. Its like welcoming back an old friend.

I find I love reading many kinds of blog posts - crafts, make-overs, sewing projects, faith journeys, family news, traveling adventures, great photos, recipes, seasonal suggestions, book reviews, yard sale finds, crochet ideas, renovations, product reviews, quilting, decorating ideas, and more.

Sometimes I have something profound(?) to share and sometimes just a photo that would really only interest close friends or family. My readers are very kind to keep coming back and I so value the comments they leave.



When considering a new post do you wonder what would interest your faithful readers or do you just blog from your heart and life?

Oooh~ good post.

I think I post when the urge strikes. I find myself putting more items in queue. I also am using Live Writer more; so when I upload pictures it is faster and can get them loaded into one post and later, when there is more time, I go back and add the text.

I like to read various types of blog myself. Some of my favorite are Homesteading types, cooking, crocheting, anything to do with chickens... but I also like crafting and decorating blogs. My focus this week have been any blogs dealing with ORGANIZATION...need I say more?

I blog for the fun of it. Only a handful of family knows my blog and I have 2 personal friends that know I blog. The rest are wonderful readers I've met all over the world and I appreciate each and every one!

My answers almost make a whole post, ...sorry (I sometimes leave wordy comments) Pat

I rarely post more than twice a week - and sometimes struggle to do that, with family,work and house. I post about what is happening in my life on any particular day, or about what's going through my head at the time.

I really enjoy reading lots of different blogs also. There are so many gifted bloggers out there, whether they be crafty,decorators,bakers,photographers, or just write from their hearts about their own lives. I tend to do the later mostly myself and I'm not sure who might be interested besides family and close friends. I just really enjoy writing and sharing. Thx for supporting me...and I really enjoy your blog so much! :)

Wow,
great post!
I love all types of blogs too!
It has been so long since I've really had the chance to blog that i'm have a hard time remembering just how often I used to post! Lately I posted more on my new house vs. family event (maybe because our family events have revolved around the house) but I enjoy posting all different types of things too! It has been a great way to meet new and wonderful people just like you!

I used to blog a lot more faithfully than I do now. I miss it, but I seem to be in a slump. Sigh... When I do post, I generally try to think what would be interesting to my blog friends that is also interesting to me and from my heart.

Sometimes, I just have something to say. LOL

Mary,
I wish I was more organized, but I tend to blog when I have a free moment. When we started blogging it was to be a sort of journal of our lives, and then I got caught up in what every one else was doing and what linky parties were going on. I found myself getting stressed over projects and blogging. I have now gone back to blogging for my family and it is a perfect fit for us.
Love reading your posts!!
Wendy

You always have great posts.
That's why I started following you.
I remember the first post I read of yours, it was an anniversary trip and the picture was of two chairs with Jim in one.
I was hooked!

Personally, I post when I have time or something to share.
I use my blog as a photo album for family and friends.

I liked how you said, 'blog from your heart and life'. That's about what I do. I might have a few ideas about future posts but it is usually about what goes on in daily life.

I sure do enjoy stopping by here :)

Teresa said...

Both!
Neither!
I don't know!
I am going to try to post more often though, now that gardening and life in general have slowed a bit. Or maybe I'm just pretending they've slowed a bit. :)

I think that I can say that..I blog with my heart. I share what happens in my life as I go along with the sisters that I love..so much fun! :D

Kris said...

Hi there! Sometimes I post every day, and some weeks, I only get a few in. For the most part, I would say I average about 5 a week. I post from my heart. I post about all that interests me. My family, my hobbies, which include so many things. I know that some of my posts don't interest anyone other than family. And that's okay. I have no real methods. I just write about whatever I feel moved to write about.
Hugs,
Kris

Well, I started blogging because I was no good at scrapbooking, yet I wanted to keep track of special pictures and stories and blogging fit the bill. And then other people started reading, and I eventually found myself worried that people would be bored with pics/stories of my kids, so I occasionally (every 3-4 posts) write something that I hope has broader appeal. I actually like doing that too, I enjoy the challenge of finding something besides my kiddos to write about!

I read different types of blogs and enjoy them all, some posts are fun, some thoughtful, I always enjoy photo's especially of families, quilting and places visited. I do prefer those without too much writing as I need to find the time to sit and enjoy those and that doesn't always happen. I would love to be able to post everyday but that doesn't happen. I love to read my daughters blog littlefingersandfrosting as she is in South Africa but now she doesn't have much internet connection she doesn't get to post so much. So just post as often as you are able and I will check in when I am able!

I blog from my heart and about my life. I'd like to blog something 4-5 times per week but I just don't have that much to blog about this time of year when school is in full swing.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I normally blog daily except on Wednesday when my link party starts on Tuesday night for Wednesday. I just post whatever is going on in the house or in my life and will post inspirational photos I find, too. Not sure if I can keep up blogging daily though.

I always say I talk a lot so I in turn post a lot but if I have a lot going on then I won't even turn the computer on as it does take a lot of time to blog and then you want to visit all your favorites so I get lost in blog land. Whatever feels good to you is best.
