How often should I post, anyway?

I post often. I find interesting things, and I tell you about them. It's almost like a bad habit or something. That being said, I'm only planning on posting a "Keeping Up with the Joneses" once a week now. I post a lot of stuff that has nothing to do with the Joneses. I was considering posting all that elsewhere, but I've come up with a better idea, I think.

Upon some introspection, I have decided that I personally prefer a single, longer post than multiple, shorter posts, even if that long, single post covers all the same topics. It is thus that I intend to post "drafts" throughout the day until I feel the post is long enough and intersting enough to warrnat publishing.

Nicole was probably the first to touch on this. If you read my blog, there's a good chance you know I'm reading yours, since I tend to comment. However, one of the big things about blogs is the "no pressure" element. If you, my friend, have a blog that I follow, I won't quite checking just because you don't post every day. In fact, it's probably unusual for someone to post every day. That said, I would like to see you post something regularly, maybe minimally semi-monthly. But I'm not going to stop checking on you just because you don't post for a period of time.

Personally, I'll likely update Monday through Friday, usually once a day, sometimes more if the material warrants it. There will be days when I won't blog at all. That said, I'm online constatnstly due to the nature of my work. The last thing I want is to pressure my friends to "blog better" or "blog more"... I just want to keep up with you, but without having to check my junk email filters.

So, I'll post weekly "Joneses" posts, and the subject will indicate that, like "Keeping Up: Blah Blah-dee Bladee Blah". If you have another idea, I'd be glad to hear it.
