So this discussion post is kind of contradicting to last week’s discussion post since that one talked about my blogging schedule :P. But really, you DON’T need a blogging schedule if you don’t want to! I thought of laying the PROS of NOT having a blogging schedule because that is totally okay, too!
PROS of not having a schedule (for the blogger)
- You don’t feel obligated to make a post during XYZ days!
Let’s say you post on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. During Tuesdays, you post your Top Ten Tuesday meme, Thursdays for reviews or discussion posts, and book hauls on Saturdays. Well, if you don’t have a schedule, guess what? You won’t feel bad if you miss a TTT post or if you forget to link up your book haul post on Stacking the Shelves meme! Also, I think there’s this invisible “rule” that discussion posts go up on Thursdays & book hauls go up on Saturdays. I just wanted to tell you that you can put up those posts which ever days you want to!
- More reading time
Since you don’t have to post for a certain day, you can just choose to read instead of writing a new blog post. You can choose to have more reading time instead of working on your blog because you don’t have to post anything! Heck, you can just not post during the whole week and just binge read those series!
PROS of not having a schedule (for the reader)
- It’s exciting for us when you have a new post!
I actually love it when bloggers do not have a blog schedule because that means their next post is a SURPRISE! I love it when a new, random post comes up on my Bloglovin’ feed from my favorite blog. I’m just like YAY! HE/SHE HAS A NEW POST UP! *checks it out*.
- More hits/pageviews
Since we don’t know when your next post will be, it’s hard to not constantly check your blog! At least, that’s what I do to the blogs I love. I constantly check their blog to see if they have a new post up because they’re just super awesome!
So, did I miss any PROS of not having a blog schedule? Comment down below and let me know your thoughts on this topic.
