This weekend I had a chance to think. Well, more like I was forced to think because we’d had such a busy weekend that I hadn’t once gotten on my blog, written, checked my readership, Tweeted or anything! It was insane, but I didn’t even notice the insanity until Sunday evening when all was said and done. But when I thought back, what had I really missed out on? To be honest, not much. My readership significantly declines when I post on the weekend versus the week, and not that readership is everything or the only reason I write, but I definitely don’t want to post something important like a big giveaway on the weekend. And I know that. And I’m ok with that! My readers have lives, too, so I don’t expect you all to be sitting around checking your email for a new post to pop up! Also, new opportunities usually don’t come in on the weekends, so there’s another check in the “Unplug during the weekend” column.
So, this revelation got me thinking… what if I just lived my life, too? Just like everyone else. What if I blog during the week only, and unplug during the weekends, taking my weekends to re-share my posts from the week, since I know there are a select few of you that can ONLY catch up during the weekends. Then, I’d be free from the stress of trying to get up a post that people may not even read and it would do wonders in getting an editorial schedule in the works!
From now on, I’ll only be blogging Monday – Friday, and using my weekends to catch-up on other blogs, brainstorm some new posts, look for exciting new opportunities for you all and plan for the next week. Of course, there will always be an exception or a time when I just can’t blog 5 days a week, but, for the most part, this is my new plan of action for The Accidental Mrs., and I’m so excited!
Blogger friends, when do you post? Do you stick to a weekend/weekday schedule, or do you have a certain number of times you blog per week? Everyone works differently, so I’m excited to learn about the ways it works for you!
