Write Often and They Will Come


I try to avoid writing about the same things everybody else does but this is certainly worth noting.

Lately there are have been a lot of expert contrarian bloggers out there who are spreading rumours against writing often as a means to becoming a successful blogger. Well, I guess this spreadsheet from David Sifry puts that argument to rest.

Write often and they will come. (You can quote me on that).

  1. Well there goes my post for the day….hrumph!

    Seriously, though, the information in the report made for interesting reading. Farsi making it into the Top Ten of languages was an eye opener as was the Tehcnorati definition of an “active” blog.

    About 55% of all blogs are active, which means that they have been updated at least once in the last 3 months.

    Once in 3 months?!?! A corpse is more active than that…

    I would be interested to see Technorati reissue the stats taking out the obviously dead blogs as well as putting some kind of filter in place so that only genuinely active blogs were included.

    I think so many people start a blog (100,000 every day), write a couple of posts, get pissed off because they haven’t become Darren Rowse overnight and then ditch the blog leaving a rotting carcase and a bloated Blogosphere.

    Nuts. Think I might still write that post after all ;)

  2. Good morning Bloke,

    From interpreting the graph, post count jump 10 times if you write 2 times a day versus 3 times a week, is that true? How about the middle yellow bar, what does that mean?

    Thanks for your time,

  3. Mike: I can’t wait to read it! :)

    Hoctro: The bottom line is the more that you write, the more posts you are throwing out into the web, and the more chances you have getting a hit.

    It’s a numbers game, much like you will catch more fish with more than one fishing pole.

    It’s not rocket science and you don’t need fancy spreadsheets to figure that out.

  4. […] a mixed bag. You have proponents and naysayers. Blogbloke referred to some chart from Technorati that showed more traffic on websites with more posts.   Several bloggers swear that writing good […]
