Evergreen content is content that continues to be relevant long past its publication so that it always remains sustainable and fresh. Topical, or timely content has relevance and significance for a limited period of time.
Evergreen or Topical content, which do you prefer writing?
I usually write on general topics, except sometimes I do express my views on politics, which is topical. I also write about diet and healthy eating, which is an evergreen subject. I also participate in many prompts, which can be topical too. So mostly it’s a mixed bag.
Which do you write most often?
I like writing poems, with some positive messages in them. Most of the time my posts are about evergreen topics. Like hope, kindness, and optimism.
Which of these adds more value or engagement to your blog?
It really depends on the content. If I write about something which is on everyone’s mind, I think it will be read more and more people are likely to comment on it. As an example, the current situation and pandemic were subjects that were on everyone’s mind and when I shared my views on them, more people participated in the discussion.
As an aside, I have noticed that something I wrote a year or so back, can be equally relevant today though it was a topical post. It just goes to show that things change, but still stay the same!
