Blogging everyday is a daunting task, especially when you are caring for a toddler, working part-time and trying to start your own business. At first, I was worried about not having anything to write about for 28 days straight. That didn't turn out to be a problem. Apparently, I have tons to say (my husband could have told me that!). The problem that I did come across but never considered was how time consuming it was. Finding time in my hectic day to sit down and actually compose a well thought out article proved to be quite a challenge. I respect my readers and the last thing I wanted to do was post something for the sake of posting.
You can also imagine that finding time to actually read other blogs also proved to be a challenge. I tried to keep up with the many incredible blogs that I follow on a regular basis but in the end, I fail to do that. I had to chose between good content or keeping up with my blogger friends.
And what about my traffic? Yes, I have to say that my traffic did increase. Not only that, I found some new followers and renewed my connection with some of my older followers. Compared to the previous month, the cold hard facts are:
- 587 more visits
- 1322 increase in pageviews
- Bounce rate decrease by almost 3% (the lower the better)
Over all, I think that the best thing to do is to find a balance. While I don't think that posting EVERY DAY is not something that I can handle, I think that writing 3 to 4 times a week can prove to be just as fruitful and I won't have to neglect my other responsibilities, as well as getting a little more shut eye at night!
Thank you to all of you that came along on my journey!
