Define your Blogging Style

Blogging and research on blogging has monopolized my time online!

In today's quest for knowledge, I found some good tips regarding posting frequency; How often should bloggers post? "Musers VS Reporters"

Musers wait for inspiration to strike, and don't force a daily post. Reporters post on current events, thus making it imperative to be up-to-date and post daily.

The consensus seems to be stay true to your blogging style. Don't be a Reporter when you're a Muser. However, there is an element of importance in consistency. It's important not to overwhelm your readers by over posting one day, then not posting for a week.

My style, if I even have one yet, tends toward Muser.

What style works for you? Comments?

I'm definitely a muser, inspiration usually strikes 2 or 3 times a week, but sometimes I have bloggers block. I agree that you have to strike a balance between posting frequently enough to satisfy any readership you may have built up and posting when you are inspired to post. Life sometimes intervenes which can make the balance a tricky one. Fish

That is most definitely true. Ideas tend to pop into mind when I'm the furthest away from a computer. A lot of times I have to skip to an empty page in my notebook during class and jot down a few lines to consider for my next post. What's good is it prevents a post from feeling forced. But, sometimes it doesn't get posted until a day or two after conception. - Mat
