There are times where you feel your creative juices are flowing and you are filled with ideas. Each of these ideas can be converted into blog entries! Due to this, you now have lots of potential blog entries to share to your readers. You plan to write them all down and publish them on the same day. I suggest you refrain from doing this. Do not be a millionaire in one day and risk being poor the next day.
I have three reasons why you should not do this.
- There will be days that you don’t have any ideas on what to write.
It is not your fault and it happens to everyone. So instead of writing something half-baked or forcing yourself to write for the sake of writing, you can tap in from your reserves. Where do you get your reserves from? Well, remember those days where you had your creative juices overflowing? Instead of publishing them all at the same day, you can save some of them for times like these. Think of it as saving money (in this case, blog entries) for future use.
- Your older entries will not be given much publicity.
Have you noticed that every time you publish an entry, the older entries get pushed down? Those poor old entries will not get much attention as the new entries since readers often read the first entry only when they check your blog for updates. What do you think will be the effect of it to your older posts (that you posted at the same day)? Ahh they will feel neglected! Even if you give the same amount of effort in writing those posts, the newer ones will shadow the older ones.
- Writing an entry can be done in a few minutes but writing a quality entry takes time.
How long does it take you to write an entry? As for me, it can be as fast as 20 minutes or be as long as two hours. It depends on how much time you spend writing just one entry. What if you have many entries to write on that day? Wouldn’t you feel pressured to finish all of them at the same time? And since you are racing against time, wouldn’t the “quality” of your posts deteriorate? What I meant by quality is that you might commit spelling errors, writing errors and write something that does not make any sense.
So in conclusion, just take your time in writing your entries. Blogging is not a race that the one who posts the most entries in one day wins. If you feel that your creative juices are overflowing today, be thankful and don’t waste the opportunity. Save up on all those ideas and unleash them one at a time in the future. It will be worth it and your readers will like it.
PS: This post was made because today I feel like I can post a lot of things (ohhh the blogging adrenaline rush!!!) but I’m glad I have self control. It even gave me an idea for a blog entry. hehe ^_^
