What You Do With Your Blogs Over the Weekend [RESULTS]

Over the last few days I asked the question of – what do you do with your blog on the weekend? There were a lot of great responses so I asked Lara Kulpa to compile the results for me.

Everyone answered in their own way but she managed to make some sense of it and came up with the following categories of what people do with their blogs on the weekend.

The numbers signify how many people said that they did that strategy and they are ranked from most common responses to least common:

  • I write extra posts for the week ahead, work on planning and goals, or do other marketing work for my blog – 54
  • I take a couple of days off (or most of my weekend days) for family and fun or other household chores – 20
  • I write/post 6 or 7 days a week no matter what – 20
  • I write “lighter” posts like link lists or reviews – 18
  • I post less because people are not online as much – 15
  • I work another full time job during the week and use weekends for catching up on my blogging – 14
  • No strategy, or I post whenever I have time or an idea, even if that means weekends – 11
  • I post more to try to keep traffic levels up – 9

So there you have it – most people seem to publish posts that they’ve pre-written.

    I’ve never pre-written blogs before but I’m considering it… seems like a good way to harness my creativity when I’m “in the flow” :)

    The advice given here in this post is quite timely for me. Thanks!! Now that the new semester has started I am going to be quite limited on my time in front of the computer…especially on the weekends. I really like the link idea on the weekends. Thanks for all the great suggestions!!!
