I am thinking about moving my blog to self hosted and before I do I wanted to do an experiment to see if when I blogged would change my statistics and if it would be beneficial to me in wanting to take my blog to the next level.
I am just finishing up on blogging every single day for 6 weeks. Usually I post about 5 times a week but I decided near the end of December to see what would happen if I posted every day but kept everything else the same. Meaning I would spend the same amount of time reading and commenting on others blogs, posting in social media and only changed how much I posted.
I need to continue this experiment. January and December are usually my best months statistically but this January I had 2,200+ more views, 900 more visitors, and views per visitor rose by .5. For my blog that was a huge leap. I recently attended a workshop on social media saying that it is not how often you blog but rather that you show up when you say you will. If you say you will post on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday that you honor that commitment to the readers. I don’t know.
How often do you blog and do you think the number of times you blog during a week raises or lowers your statistics?
