Writing a Post Everyday...Does it Really Matter

I have been thinking lately how life is keeping me from blogging everyday. I used to write everyday the first year or more of this blog, but am finding it difficult to keep up. Business has picked up and so has life with two kids. There are some other successful real estate bloggers in town who write everyday, but I just can't post 30 times a month without staying up till midnight every night. I like my sleep, or I can't function.

I can tell my readership has suffered because of this. Google analytics tracks my blogs and lets me know how many visitors I have daily. Needless to say, my readers have decreased. Google has dropped my site in page rank just this past week. Oh, well, what can you do? Obviously, writing a post everyday does really matter if you want your blog to rank high in Google. If it ranks high, more people visit you and possibly come back to read some more. The more people who visit, the more Google likes you. It is a vicious cycle!

So I would love for those that read me to stick around and visit every now and then. Or drop me a line and let me know what you love or hate about the blog. Trust me, I miss blogging everyday, but never can find enough time to do it anymore.

Don't give up Jennifer!!

I know Blogging is sometimes a marketing tool for us Real Estate Agents, but I also believe it is our duty to serve the local twin cities area with the right information on the housing market, rather than relying on the Mainstream Media to report on subjects they do not fully understand.

Keep up the great work. And see you at the closing table sometime soon!

As an agent in Atlanta who is fairly new to blogging (started this year) your post is very informative. I never knew if the act of writing posts actually helped page rank. I write about 2 or 3 a week and my page rank has continued to increase, but I didn't know if it was from posts or links back to my site.

Here is a link to my Buckhead real estate blog if you are interested.
