Comment on Why Do I Blog and Pour Myself Out There Every Day? by Allan Jensen.
This resonates with me. I am doing a bit of blogging as well, specifically on commercial mortgage topics. Like you, I am pumped when there are many views on a post, and frustrated when there are fewer. This does, as you mentioned, affect how I subsequently feel about sitting in front of the laptop and banging out a new post, day after day. I think the notion of writing each day, but mixing it up, is a terrific approach. Some days the words are just flowing, and its easy to bang out a longer piece. Other days, much less so, and that’s perhaps when it makes sense to have a more general ‘state of mind’ piece. Thanks for sharing your observations!

Make the Most of Your First 100 Days
Great article, and good luck with the 4 articles posted per week. I would be interested to know whether you site down each day to write, or do you do several posts and simply schedule their publication? For myself, I need to set aside time, each day, or it is a scramble to get something out. Is the referenced “site participation” generally a personal commentary on someone else’s blog post, or do you contribute guest articles etc.?
