I’m a fan of trying things out for a month to see how they fit into my life and benefit me. At the end of November, I started a 30-day sprint of daily blogging inspired by the daily blog of Fred Wilson from AVC, which I enjoy following.
I certainly derived value from writing out my thoughts. However, I found the daily blog to be too much. In order to get a blog post out every day, I was scrambling to fit in time to write and I don’t think my writing/content was anywhere near my best work. I’ve decided that a daily blog works well for someone like Fred who wants to grow his network to find more investing opportunities, but for someone like me, it’s overkill. I know that I could probably invest more time into the blog by sharing my posts on social media, etc. and eventually build a following, but that doesn’t feel worth it to me.
I also think I’d be kidding myself if I thought I had enough interesting, unique thoughts for people to need to read a new post of mine every day. You’d have to really like my writing.
Since I have derived value from blogging, I’m going to continue to do it, but at a more reasonable pace. I’m planning to post 1-2 articles per month instead of 30. My hope is that I’ll both enjoy it more and that the quality of the content will be higher.
