The Beginning (of No More Daily Posts)

After two weeks of posting every day I have decided it’s not a schedule I want to continue.

Not only is it a lot of work to keep up with it’s just not fun. And I have some posts coming out soon that need more time and I don’t wanna sacrifice quality in exchange for speed.

Because really, there’s no rush.

I Got My Answer

Most importantly, I got the answer I was looking for, which was how to increase my writing speed.

I was having a hard time keeping up with two posts per week so to solve the problem I increased that to 7 days a week.

Why? Because putting myself under that pressure forced me to figure out ways write faster. And by changing a few things I can now write posts in less than 1/2 the time.

So, starting today I’m going back to my 1-2 posts per week schedule.

And if I feel like writing more, I will.

    I respect your decision, Malan.

    I felt that “some of your posts” lacked detail when you posted daily.

    • Malan Darras

      yeah definitely felt that too. sometimes it’s cool to just make a statement and then let the reader think the rest out themselves. but damn, sometimes i wanna dive deep and can’t do that at rapid-fire pace without burning out.

    That’s a great idea Malan… Push your limits to force yourself to be more efficient and then back off after some key learnings!

    Will read no matter the frequency 😉

      thanks samrex

    like you hard

  • Reid Yamamoto

    Sounds like you were split testing your posting frequency and you’ve arrived at your conclusion. I tried posting to a blog once a day for 30 days and it made me start to hate blogging.

    • Malan Darras

      yeah, i felt the same way. it was interesting and my speed picked up. but as far as the split test results? 1-2 times per week max wins.
