I am a regular reader of Jeff Atwood’s blog and always get something useful out of his posts, I find them well thought out and worth the read.
Jeff had a great post today called How To Achieve Ultimate Blog Success In One Easy Step. Jeff gives great advice:
When people ask me for advice on blogging, I always respond with yet another form of the same advice: pick a schedule you can live with, and stick to it. Until you do that, none of the other advice I could give you will matter. I don’t care if you suck at writing. I don’t care if nobody reads your blog. I don’t care if you have nothing interesting to say. If you can demonstrate a willingness to write, and a desire to keep continually improving your writing, you will eventually be successful.
I have been blogging for a couple years now but I have not committed to a regular schedule. My usual reasons are I am too busy with clients, family or life in general. As Jeff points out, a blog should be part of your regular life and commit to a schedule you can stick with and post something.
I am committing here to post 3 times a week and see if I can make my blog more popular and my writing better.
