There are over 200,000,000 Blogs circling the depths of the Internet, and this number is continuously growing.
On a daily basis, 54% of all bloggers post content or tweet every day of the week. While I definitely have the Twitter updates covered, with an average of 10-15 tweets per day and over 300 tweets per month, the blog updating is what really gets me.
Work every night, weekends busy with photography jobs until sometimes 4AM, school during the days, writing articles and reporting on events, running businesses, working out, keeping my social life alive with friends and blogging. (Take note as to which is last on the list)
With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, work, school and hobbies I do pretty well at remembering everything except posting consistent blog updates.
It is a continuous blogging cycle. Once the end of the month comes around, I review my blog stats and realize I’ve had only a handful of posts that month. I then start off the next month with a renewed determination to take time to write and to post a couple blogs every week. This however, usually wears off in the first few days of the new month and I am confronted by it at the end of four weeks in a continuous spiral of social media demise.
I suppose I’m shooting for quality vs. quantity, or at least that is my current excuse. The act of blogging is like the act of going to the gym, it sounds great in theory and gets your really pumped up, right up until it comes to the decision to walk out the door or have an extra snack and watch the next episode of reality tv on the couch.
Now, the beginning of a new month is upon us and the main question presents itself: will the blogging cycle break this month? Stay tuned to find out, but despite the turn of events in the blogging cycle, be sure to follow me on twitter for constant updates. @NikkiVilloria
