A question of quality or quantity?


I haven’t ever really committed to a “schedule” for publishing my blog. I am not sure I will. However, I am looking to do more with it this year than I have in the past. That being said, the ultimate question comes down to – quality or quantity?

When it comes to growing your blog, which is better? I am sure that quality matters, but does it really matter when it comes to growing your blog?

I have seen other bloggers who say just getting out there and publishing something is better than nothing. Yes, I understand that. I have also seen other bloggers say that putting out something that others want to read is important. Yes, I understand that. So where do the amount of what you publish and the quality of what you publish meet? Is there an intersection of balance or is that a fantasy (especially for someone with a family and a job)?

Perhaps I just think too much about this and go into too much detail by trying to support what I write with facts and details. Perhaps I care to much about what I write and want to make sure it is accurate. Perhaps I should care less, but not be careless.

Does having a schedule really work?

Does having a singular topic or focus area help?

Any insight or advice from the veteran bloggers out there? I know there are lots of places I can probably go to read about this, but I don’t want to comb through pages and pages of info because in the end it is all just opinions anyway, right? So, what do you think?


  1. Especially in our current world where a post won’t last long before it’s hidden under the newest thing, I can see why people say to just publish something consistently. But I think I produce better content–things that I’m proud of and which I think will be enjoyable to readers–if I don’t stick to a schedule or quota, and just write when I feel the words brimming. I wish I could be more proliferate and consistent, but that just doesn’t work well for me.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really appreciate that! If you didn’t figure it out from the post, I am kind of in your vein of thinking…publish when I think it is good and something I can be proud of putting out there. Schedules are hard, but at the same time I don’t always have time to write when the idea or words are there either. I know there must be balance somewhere.
