    do you blog on the weekends?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to make up my mind if I should blog on the weekeneds. This probably depend on the type of blog someone is running.

    Do you blog on the weekeneds?

    I tend to write blog posts a) when I have the need or idea, and b) when I have a time slot to do it. "When" I actually do the writing could be any day or time, 247, 365 days a year.

    I just write them whenever I have ideas. If I finish writing them really late at night or something, I wait to publish them the next day during a time when people are usually on Facebook since it's my main traffic source (so yes, I do blog on weekends).

    I generally set up a weeks worth of blog posts all at once and set them to be added one each day of the week. If something comes up where I have something more to say then there ends up being a second blog post on whichever day I add the extra info.

    Previously when I was working on a Gaming Blog I used to work on weekends as well. Although initially traffic for weekends was very low as compared to week days, but I was surprised to find that after Blogging for few weekends, traffic grew to the level of weekdays.

    Totally agree with you. I always think you can write good articles when you really have something to write and eagerly write them down. Or not, you just sit in front of computer in a daze and have nothing to say. The same thing always happened to me.

    I usually write snippets here and there from my iphone or ipad to just get a blog started so I don't lose the idea or train of thought... I'll have anywhere from 20-30 of these at any given time and then just login whenever I need content and finish them out.

    The idea phase typically happens in the bathroom. LOL

    For my work and study schedule, I prefer to blog on weekends because I have less workload and study-load.

    I usually reserve the weekends from blogging about other topics, though I make sure that these are still related to the main content. This lets me have new ideas for my content.

    I write whenever I can, because it's something I'm passionate about I always try and find the time to at least produce a couple of unique articles every week.

    Though I should probably clarify and say that the writing I do is for other sites (rather than my own blog), that and for books and such.

    I usually update my personal blog everytime I attend an event, go to places and after a vacation. I love to take photos and place it on my blog so that I can share it to my readers.

    I blog whenever I have free time or feel like it. I know there should be a schedule but at the moment I blog whenever I feel like it.

    I write whenever I have the time to write, ideas and subjects are not a problem for me. I just need the time. Of course weekends are a personal time for me, I prefer doing something else, like relax and have fun.

    Yeah whenever I have an idea or something that I want to rant about I let Drazin go at it. But if i have something I'd rather do, I do it, then blog. Can't let it take over your life.

    On one blog i put post everyday. On other when i get time and feel like doing it. But what i have observed is that daily posting has great results. As some of the members have suggested it is better to keep the posts ready and schedule its publication timing.

    I actually do more blogging on the weekends when I have time. It's relaxing, believe it or not.
