Seeking information

We now have access to more information than we’ll ever use and can ever truly comprehend.

You might have grown up where the only way to learn about something was if you went to the library, watched a documentary on TV or even asked someone you know.

If you want to learn about something nowadays, the answer is a few seconds away. Any random thought or curiosity that comes to mind doesn’t have to pass you by.

You can google it.

And because we have that access, it might make us less likely to read books, watch documentaries and ask questions. Those are things I’d consider to still be worth doing.

When we’re seeking answers or information on a topic, we can find it out on our own pretty quickly.

It’s also something we take for granted.

Posting daily isn’t a strategy

For some the idea of posting daily might be a strategy to make the numbers go up.

For me, posting daily isn’t a strategy it’s a personal practice. I like knowing that I can do it because 2 years ago I’d have declared it almost impossible for me.

I actually think that it’s easier to remain consistent with daily posts rather than picking 3 days a week.

But what also helps is I force myself to look at life differently as a means to have something to write about that is more than just ‘here’s what I did today’.

I’ve heard that having more content on your site can help boost your Google rankings and in most cases if you have more content you’ll also have more views.

I can post daily because I write short posts. However, if I was writing 800+ word essays daily postings wouldn’t be practical for me.

In terms of strategies I think a lot of it is down to why you blog and what you care about.

If you’re making a living from your site (or trying to) you’re much more likely to follow the rules.
