Another series of posts that I wrote back in my early days was titled Generating High Quantities of Content.
I started the series of 7 posts with the following statement:
“Do you want to generate good traffic on your blog and therefore give yourself a chance at earning an income from it? Quality Content is a good first step – but it is not enough – you need to work on Quantity also.”
One of the criticisms that this series received from readers was that I was saying Quantity was more important than Quality of posts – of course this was not the case. I am totally in favor of bloggers working on post quality (and have written many tips on this) however – I still think that some bloggers could improve their blogs by upping the quantity of posts.
I probably have mellowed a little since writing this series in 2004 (from memory I was posting between 10 posts a day back then – and increased it to 20-30 posts per day over the next few months) but I’m still a big believer in regular posts (Quality and Quantity).
So that’s enough disclaimers – take a look at the series. Keep in mind it’s from over two years ago now – but much of it is still relevant.
- Generating High Quantities of Content – Introduction
- Set Yourself a Target
- News Sites and News Aggregators
- Start a New Blog
- Break Posts Down
- Ecto and Desktop blog Editors
- Recruit Writers
PS – in the interest of balance – perhaps I should also link to my recent post on ‘Getting a Life‘ as one of the consequences of taking the Quantity thing too far is blog burn out. Make sure you look after yourself and keep balance in your blogging or you’ll never sustain your blogging for the long term!
