Why Should You Blog Regularly?

by Sushant Risodkar · 59 comments

If you’re going to be a successful blogger, one important point to keep in mind is that you should update your blog regularly. By regular, I simply mean that you should define a schedule and STICK to that schedule. Do NOT wander off that schedule, ever.

But, that’s difficult, right? Why?

The major reason why people tend to lose interest midway through their blogging is because they start out wrongly. They decided to blog about something that was not really their point of interest. So, primary rule to success is – Blog about what you love!

Here I share 4 reasons why you should blog regularly:

A Regular Schedule Turns Readers Into ‘Loyal Readers

The idea is pretty simple. When you plan and stick to a schedule, your readers get used to that schedule. Eventually, they don’t have to rely on the blog feeds either. As long as they are well aware of your posting schedule, they’ll generally visit your blog themselves on days when they expect you to update the blog. Finding fresh content gives them a reason to keep coming back!

You Lose Traffic When You Deviate

Consider the point above. When loyal readers re-visit your blog, they do so with the expectation of reading something new. If you regularly SKIP your scheduled posting times and neglect the entire blogging area, then these visitors will gradually get disappointed. They won’t be able to keep track of your blog updates and quite a few might simply stop visiting you. This generally leads to a decline in traffic (and a sharp decline, mind that) which is the last thing you want if you’re aiming to be a successful blogger.

Regular Updates = Higher Search Engine Positions

Obviously, Search engines want content. They love content. Everytime they visit your blog, they’ll scrape it for new content. If they find it, they index it. And when they index it, you have more pages indexed in a particular search engine. That, in turn, means you have more chances of people visiting your blog when they’re searching for something, as with the addition of each new blog post, you basically widen the scope of topics you cover. And the more pages and quality posts you have indexed, you get more authority in the search engines. Anyone who has a basic idea of success, would not disagree with this post!

Regular Updates Get You More Backlinks

Don’t forget that quite a few of your readers are also bloggers(in most of the niches). And when you regularly update your blog, every once in a while they’ll like something you posted and link back to you from their own blogs. What does this offer you? Free backlinks! Who would not want free backlinks? All it takes is some time to stay true to your schedule and you get so many benefits without having to actually work hard for them.


There’s countless advantages of regularly updating your blog. More traffic (which leads to more revenue), more exposure, you establish yourself as a professional in your blogging niche, etc. Of course, it all requires you to stick to your schedule. And if you’re short on time, then plan a schedule that does not require too much time, but can still effectively keep your blog fresh!

Are you able to stick to your schedule? If not, what makes that thing does not happen? Let me know by commenting below.

I like to think of this as simply BUILDING A GOOD RHYTHM. Once you make it a REGULAR habit, it’s almost as if your day won’t be complete without you’re scheduled activity. Just like working out, dieting, etc….once you get off schedule, even blogging will be hard as heck to get back into. Nice post.

That’s a great post, especially when you cover about “Blog about what you love!”. People tends to blog is because they are trying making online by adsense or some other money making sites so they can earn from blogging.

I only blog about what I love mostly :p. Good post, regular update = loyal reader = traffics!. I don’t mind about traffics, what i want is loyal readers! Thanks for your tip SB!

Well, bloggers should at least update their page at least once a week, keep their posts interesting and helpful to others or else, no body would want to visit you again if you have the same old boring stories and nothing is new.

You have to be consistent and persistent to succeed online. However I don’t think it is about the quantity of the posts rather than the quality and the value of the information presented.

Still if you can do a lot of good / great posts it will be even better, don’t you agree 😉

The most important part of your blog is the content you publish through your blog posts, so if you don’t update your blog with a new post, there is no reason for people to visit.

Some people say you should do it everyday. After all, Google’s Panda loves fresh content.

Other people say you should post multiple times each day. That gives people lots of material to share and talk about.

What about once a week? Is it perhaps best to keep it nice and regular and post on the same day each week?

Well, I disagree with all of those things.
When I started my first blog all those years ago I bought in to the idea that you needed to post every day. That’s what the big guys were telling us to do.

To be fair, that was true back then. Blogging was [sort of] new and everyone was hashing out Google and how their rankings system worked and there was hardly any social media action beyond Digg and Delicious.

nice tips !! Sometimes I got my self become bored when I spent my time at least 2-3 hours everyday but I try to keep consistent and discipline on this regular work as I really want my blog looks like a professional blog. It’s hard but I got a fruitful result at the end.

many a times people choose high paying niche instead of niche they are interested in. they can’t write much on that niche and that results in failure.
