Create a posting schedule, also refered to as an editorial calendar.
You do not have to blog everyday to rank high on Google, but you may not want to blog once a month either. I recommend starting with one article a week.
Try to write 300 words but no more than 800 words. If you make your post too long you may bore your readers and run the risk of early burn out in your blogging goals. So just be consistent with your blog content and watch the traffic start flowing into your blog.
I use a really neat plugin called the WordPress Editorial Calendar Plugin, that is helpful if you “actually” use it. Download or view full details by clicking here.
Here are a few features of this plugin, more details can be found on the plugin download page.
- See all of your posts and when they’ll be posted.
- Drag and drop to change your post dates.
- Manage your drafts with our new drafts drawer.
- Quick edit post titles, contents, and times.
- Publish posts or manage drafts.
- Easily see the status of your posts.
- Manage posts from multiple authors.
KISS: Or, Keep It Short and Simple. Be considerate of your visitors time, no one has hours to spend on your blog, no matter how well you may write. To be honest, your blog will be much more appreciated if you put your thoughts out simply and shortly.
