How To Farm Your Blog – by Hugh W. Roberts
“Have you tried farming out your blog posts instead of cluster-publishing them?” asked the blogging genie.
“Farming them out?”
“Yes, another word for scheduling. Instead of publishing too many blog posts and overwhelming your readers, farm them out by scheduling them over a more extended period. Your readers won’t feel swamped.”
“I like that idea.”
“And don’t forget to farm out the posts you want to reblog. Instead of reblogging them the same day the original post is published, allow them to grow and farm them out a week later. After all, farming and blogging are all about growth.”
Written for the 99-word flash fiction challenge hosted by Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch.
The definition of a cluster-blogger is somebody who publishes many blog posts within a short timeframe and then does not publish the next batch of blog posts for many days/weeks or months. It can result in making readers feel overwhelmed.
Scheduling blog posts in advance and leaving at least six hours between the publication of blog posts decreases the sense of overwhelmingness, resulting in a more manageable and enjoyable reading experience.
