I don’t have a lot of posts every week on my blog. Checking my calendar, it’s about 3 per week plus some more if I post about events or things like that. My usual formula is one discussion post, two reviews, and one wrap-up post. It doesn’t seem like a small number, but doesn’t seem big either. I think it’s a nice little in-between number of posts, and I like it because it allows me to build up a buffer.
I like having a buffer of posts, because it lets me kick back and chill sometimes while letting my scheduled posts run the blog. Sometimes it will be weeks between me rating the book on Goodreads and posting an actual review on my blog, all because I like to schedule posts over “post as you write.”
Sometimes I can get really in the zone when I write posts, especially discussion posts. As I type this (March!), I have discussion posts queued up until April. This post is probably going up in May. 😛 Greetings from the past! So yes, I like to get really in the zone and crank out a few posts good for a few weeks, then spend the rest of the time just chilling and relaxing.
I hardly write a post that goes up right when I finish it. Even my weekly digests are done the day before and are scheduled. I just really love scheduling things, everyone! Haha!
What about you, dear reader?
Are you a buffer-builder or a post-as-you-write kind of blogger?
