Here in the blogging world we share not only our views on different aspects of life but also on blog writing itself. Yesterday coincidentally, there were two posts on the subject of the content that is written on daily basis. One blogger thought that there is an excess of posts and the posts themselves don’t contain any worthwhile content. The other one was of the opposite opinion, though not in answer to the first one.
As some of you might have read my post yesterday on the etiquettes of award nominations. So today I have another question, coming from those bloggers, how many times should a writer post on his/ her blog a day? In other words, should there be a limit to the number of times we can post on our own blog? Another question related to this , what sort of content we should be posting?
Here is what I think;
1. It is a free world ( at least in the blogosphere) and people who have their blogs , (either free or paid by them) it is their space, and they have full freedom to post as many time a day on their space as they want.
2. What sort of posts should be put on the blogs. Anything that the readers of that blogger want to read and that person wants to post! Why should someone object on the content of my post or that of someone else? If you are not happy with what someone is posting, you can simply not read it.
3. Bloggers love to write. They are here to write. And the content they post should be of their own choice. If my love is writing serious stuff, I will do that. If someone loves writing poetry then that person can write poems to their heart’s content. There are blog writers who write amazing stories and flash fiction, they should be free to indulge in their passion.The stories some of us write may not be award-winning or very profound, but this is the way to develop the writing talent. The proficiency comes with practice. Words become our tools of expression and we develop a friendship with the Lexicon. Our posts may not enrapture our readers or cause a ripple in the universe, but we are trying to get there. And we will, given enough practice.
I will be grateful for your feedback in comments . Let me know what are your thoughts on this. And I hope that this post doesn’t cause offense to anyone. That is not my aim. Just sharing my thoughts.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
