Whether you publish a blog post three times per day, once every day, or even once per week, finding inspiration can prove troublesome. I’ve been able to keep a decent level of consistency up on my blog, posting on average every three days. I owe a lot to you, my readers.
When you ask questions via the blog comments, I’m always wondering if the answer deserves an individual post. More often than not I’ll answer your question within a paragraph or two, following on from your comment. Sometimes, however, it’s more appropriate to give the topic more attention, putting it out to a wider audience for different opinions.
When I read other blogs, and the post comments reach into the 20s or 30s, I’ll skim read to save time. It’s fair to say that most others would do the same (but correct me if you think I’m wrong), so next time you’re writing something in your blog comments that you think is of importance, ask yourself if it would be better to devote a fresh post to the topic.
Reader emails are another great source of blogging inspiration, and I’m very grateful for your inquisitive messages. If I haven’t yet had the opportunity to respond to a question you’ve emailed, please don’t think I’m ignoring you. In fact, I currently have a few draft posts I’m working on thanks to your contact. I’m receiving about 70 or 80 emails per day, and whilst that might be nothing compared to a certain expert copywriter or professional blogger, it means I can’t always give them the attention I’d like.
Do you have any particular questions that you’d like me to answer?
If there’s anything you’re curious about, no matter how trivial you think it might be, go ahead and ask. I’ll answer your questions in a following blog post. They could be personal or professional, or you might want my opinion on something (which reminds me, I have a couple of logos that were emailed I’ve been meaning to critique).
You’ll be helping me out by providing some ammunition for future topics, and at the very least you might get to know me a little better.
