Changing posting habits

I go through spurts of writing new posts for this workshop.

I’ll have a single night of inspiration and write four or five posts, and then do nothing for the rest of the week. In the past when I’ve had these inspirational periods I’ve scheduled the posts to be published over a period of time rather than all at once.

It seemed a good idea not to throw too much content out all at once. It would give the audience a chance to read it all before new posts were published. The website would also feel more active with new content every few days, rather than a bunch of posts one day and none for weeks.

But with this workshop I think that is the wrong mindset.

We don’t care about numbers, so why should we be doing stuff to specifically try and get readers to come back more often. We are writing for ourselves, so we should also be publishing for ourselves.

So from now on I’m going to try and break my habit of wanting to spread out posts and just publish them when they are done.
