Offering loads of content is key for your audience. You must provide them with exciting and interesting content that’s true but in a lot of cases especially when you have a big audience quantity also counts and you must be sure that you offer that also.
If you want to keep your audience you must be sure that every time they visit back they also have something new to see. We see this all the time on high authority sites and there’s a reason for that aside from the fact that they have many writers and/or outsource the content.
Without getting too technical it’s good to keep your blog or website as fresh as possible while also avoiding posting just for the love of posting. Finding that sweet spot is the key. Here are a few tips from a fellow blogger.
The Single Greatest Method for Immediately Increasing Your Blog Post Production Speed by 600%
So you’re short on time. You’ve got a deadline, and you really need to get your post published. There’s no flexibility for perfectionism, this time, there is simply point A, point B, and the chasm between the two.
Allow me to introduce you to the fastest way to put proverbial pen-to-paper and send that blockbuster post down the production line in the shortest time possible.
When I first started blogging, it was like torture. Even when I had a good idea for a blog post, I’d still sit there for hours wondering how best to put it together. Would it get read? Was it good enough?

Write ideas down on your spare time to know what you are going to write about next so that when you sit at your keyboard you start writing in that very moment. I’m sure that you have lots of ideas throughout of the day. Also be mindful of the length.
You should know how long your post is going to be, where it start’s and when it’s going to end before you actually start writing it.

Myth: “When it comes to blog posts, shorter is better.”
Many “expert” bloggers perpetuate the myth that “shorter is better,” that blog posts should never be more than 600 words long. They explain that online readers have short attention spans and don’t want to read long articles. The only way you can get more readers, they say, is to write posts that are short and sweet.
