Why should I stick to a regular blogging schedule?

Nowadays a blog is no longer just a page of images and text chronicling your daily life. A blog is now seen as a base station for your expertise or knowledge and this is something that we’ve already discussed. Consistent blogging is important and here are some tips that will help you to manage your blog and stay on top of your blogging schedule.
Write on a regular basis
I try to write every day, I keep a set schedule and try to stick to it regardless of the ups and downs of daily life. Even when I can’t write a blog post I note down every single idea that I have. You can do this by jotting every single idea that occurs in a notebook, post-it notes, a Google document or a note-taking application on your phone. The important thing is to keep the ideas flowing and get your ideas down.
Develop an editorial calendar
You can use a spreadsheet application like Microsoft Excel to plan and write out a set schedule for your blogging efforts for the next week or month. The benefit of this is that it will help you to manage your workload and as a result you will publish blog posts more often if you stick to a schedule. You have to commit to this for it to work. What topics or material do you want to cover in the next fee weeks or months? What do you want your audience to know about you?
Rehash old content
You can consider rehashing old content that didn’t get a lot of attention when you originally posted it. As any blogger knows it can take an awfully long time for a blog to get new subscribers and it may be in your best interest to show new readers of your blog some of your old content.
Your audience expects it
As your blow grows, you will have new visitors that regularly visit your site looking for new content. As long as you keep writing your audience will grow, that is as long as people are searching for content content that helps them somehow. You have to a blog on a regular basis as regular subscribers will expect new content every fortnight and by doing this you build up a community. Blogging on a regular basis gives you a platform from which to spread word about your business or services you offer.
