quality v/s quantity ?
What bring readers to your blog, regular post updates or less regular but more quality post updates?
What makes more sense to you? and what you apply on your blog?
I think both go hand in hand. Nobody want to read something that makes no sense at all that's when quality comes in. The reader's want something that they can understand or relate to..that is the whole point why they are reading your posts. Quantity can have it's pros and cons. Don't be in a rush to keep posting. Dedicated readers will always come back to your blog whenever you post something new. However, posting too late can also make your readers frown. It's not always good to keep people waiting. So in a nutshell, it's best NOT TO neglect your blog and keep blogging.
Hi Sugarfree Sweeta tiwary, thank you for bringing up this topic.
I believe in quality... Very very very (to the power infinity) high quality. As a result, I am not able to make even 10 posts on my blog till now. And Renie blatantly refused to accept my blog on Indiblogger. Can you get it done through any of the indipolice officers you know? Meanwhile, I have applied for the post of indiconstable... If that works out I'll do it myself.
I am also curious to know how much visitors does quality bring in... Can you visit my blog so that I can start counting..
Yes, QUALITY matters the most. If at all I get 2000+ page views a day, it is because of the quality content even when I posted just 6 articles over last 30 days. I don't think you will get a better justification than this!
Thanks alot for your replies. It is really tricky to decide which is more important.
As upasana correctly said it is not good to make the readers wait. but to create a good post it needs more attention which we fail to give regularly due to other works.
@Mohan: you must be having many dedicated readers by now. :)
I feel for beginners being regular is important.
Sweta: I think being regular is important, but just to the extent that you determine that you will write say, 10 or 20 posts per month (this would depend on your blog and your schedule) and then do that much. Too much writing and too little writing could alienate people who are in your rhythm.
And seriously, content matters a lot more than how frequently you post, especially with things like email subscriptions. (In fact, seeing a ton of posts in my email inbox is more likely to put me off than otherwise)
Seriously no one would have answered quantity,even if they would have thought so ;)
No, I don't think that if you have one post every three months people are going to be rushing to subscribe to your blog. Quantity definitely matters too.
On the other hand, having ten posts in one day (neither of which are relevant or interesting and mostly are spam) aren't going to be very encouraging either.
Not many readers come to my blog. But as a reader of other's blogs, I can say 'Quality is King'. That's what keeps me coming back to a blog.
Thanks for your replies. So every one says Quality is the king but with that we should try to be regular also.
hmmm qaulity is the king but we can't negelet quantity also. Because we all know readers come only for reading something valuable as well as the blog which update frequently. As my blogging experience I post atleast two posts per week and get nearly 3000 page views per day but sometimes I post three then the next few days I can see pick in my feed subscriber stat
The above mentioned stats are huge 4 me! But do agree, Quality wins over Quantity, but that doesn't mean that you have to neglect the Quantity quotient!
Quality is anyday a non-disputable fixed criterion. It is ultimately quality that adds value to the reader and makes his/her time worthwhile.
Quantity is not fixed; however, it should be standardized by the blogger by deciding on a schedule or frequency, average size of posts, etc. and then stick to it religiously. For example, a blogger can decide to make one post per week.
In short, quality is not customizable, whereas quantity is customizable.
Just my 2 pence!
Both are parallel.I do not find any individual to among them succeeding alone.Let me give you an example:
You go to a restaurant and order some dish,if the dish you ordered is in good quantity but quality is low then you would not prefer to come here again and if the quality is good but the quantity insufficient then also you would not prefer to come to that restaurant...
Quality is the King for sure. If you have regular readers, you need to keep blogging often.
A good balance of both. In the initial stages, it is all about how good you write and how good can you get to share your blog's posts to various people. Often, bloggers are the best blog readers too.
Hope this helps.
