One of the more frequent questions I get on my blog is “wow, are you on vacation or something? you haven’t posted in like 2 whole days!” It reminds me of when I was working on my first startup – if I didn’t answer an email sent at 10pm by 6am the next morning, people figured I had died or at least something terrible had happened to me.
When I started blogging on ColoradoStartups.com, I did a bunch of interviews with CXOs of the most interesting local startups I could find. I was posting every day or two. Sometimes I was blogging about startups that maybe weren’t all that interesting.
Now I’m quite a bit more picky. I try to only do a post when something is genuinely interesting to me. I’m running into more startups now than when I first started blogging, but I’m writing about less of them. I figure, in turn, it might just be more interesting for you that way. The last thing I want to do is bore you, after all. And the last thing you want is to be bored.
So I’m not going to post every day. I’m going to post when I have something relevant and interesting to say. I don’t think I have 365.25 genuinely interesting things to say about Colorado based startups each year. Well, not yet anyway.
One of the things I love about the web is how you can find supporting evidence for any belief you might have. Example: Blog post frequency doesn’t matter anymore. I rest my case and I rest my fingers.
