3 Ways My Blog Improved When I Started Posting Less Often

It’s no secret that I’ve dealt with some major blogger burnout in the past. Over the last couple of months, I’ve been trying my hardest to get back to the root of LiveLifeWell. I’ve been trying to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place and what made it fun. I’ve come to the conclusion that it was so enjoyable in the beginning because there was no pressure. I started out blogging once per week and increased my number of posts to 2 per week and then 3 per week within my first 3 months. This time last year when I was living  in Japan, I was sharing 4 posts per week. Shortly after we got back home and life got hectic again, I realized that that number of posts was no longer feasible. I’ve decreased my number of posts back to 2 per week and I’ve noticed that my blog has improved in a few ways since I started posting less often:

In blogging, more doesn't necessarily mean better! I'm sharing 3 ways that my blog improved when I started posting less often
  1. I don’t struggle to come up with content ideas: I think my favorite thing about posting less often is that I no longer struggle to come up with things to blog about. Coming up with content ideas can be hard, especially once you’ve  exhausted all of your initial ideas. Now, I actually have a surplus of ideas and the best part is that I blog about things that I’m really eager to share instead of fluff, filler posts.

  2. I have more time to spend promoting my posts: When I was posting 4 times a week, I felt like I was spending 0 time promoting one post before it was time to move on to promoting the next. Now, I have a lot of time to share and re-share each post. I also have more time to  repurpose old posts, like this post from last year  about building the perfect Easter basket for the guy in your life that I re-shared  earlier this week since Easter is approaching.

  3. I’m more flexible to opportunities: To be honest, I’ve never been the one to jump at every single chance to participate in sponsored opportunities. It’s important to me that LiveLifeWell have a certain look and feel and that I only share about things that I honestly think my readers will be interested in. Even still, when my content calendar was packed 4 days a week, I had a hard time fitting in both sponsored and unpaid opportunities that I wanted to participate in. Now that I’m posting less often, I have plenty of flexibility so that I can participate in campaigns that interest me.
