So at the very least pick one day when you’re going to post and stick with it.

Set yourself a challenge and reward yourself for following through. If you update your blog once a week and write 1,000 words per post after a year you’ll have written a small book. It really does make you an expert in your niche and the very act of that writing will have helped you learn a lot about yourself, your goals and your business.

It’s like a contract between us where I promise them I’ll have something good for them to read on a set day every week no matter what, and they know when they need to check in for new updates.

When I started my first blog I committed to writing new posts three times a week on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays.

With a brand new blog it’s important to build up a body of work fast so your blog looks established and there’s plenty of content to keep readers engaged.

Last update November 14th 2014 Are you confused about how often to update your blog? Creating new blog updates and blog post scheduling seems to worry new bloggers more than anything else.

It’s something I’ve experimented with a lot, and you’ll probably need to experiment with it too, because we’re all different with varying time constraints and writing abilities.

But if you’re a small business owner or writer like me at least once a week is my short answer.Any less and it will be hard for you and your readers to keep up interest.If you want to tap into the power of blogging to grow your business or prove yourself as a writer set yourself a goal and stick to it.First decide on a posting schedule of once a week (or twice, three times, daily or how ever often you can realistically manage it) and then make time for it.Many bloggers tell me they can’t stick to their posting schedule.If that’s your problem then cut the number of post you write but remember, if you update your blog less than weekly, it will be hard to build up a good body of work and keep up momentum.
