This is a very common question that might be asked by a blogger sooner or later. Some people blog daily while some might choose to do so once or twice weekly depending on the schedule. In my opinion there is not a right answer to this question since there are so many different variables that are involved. Rather than providing a specific answer to this question I will introduce you the different features that are involved in order to help you take the best possible decision.
Of course the amount of posts that you could make will depend a lot on your writing capacity. Do you have the time to write multiple posts per day? Do you have the money to outsource this task? These are all questions that you will need to ponder on before you settle on a blogging frequency. You should also be wary of the writer burn-out syndrome if you choose to post on a very frequent basis.
Type of Visitors
Your blogging frequency will also depend a lot on the type of visitors that you have. For instance some people might be looking for some in-depth content while some people might be more interested in some more shallow content, provided it is offered in a timely basis. The first example might be related to a financial blog while the second example might be the case of a sport blog.
Interactions on your site
There might definitely be a link between the interaction on your site and also the frequency at which you post. Although bloggers that tend to post frequently may experience a surge in traffic there might be a trade-off with the amount of comments and engagement on the site. Most people will not want to or simply do not have time to read all the different posts and instead may pick and choose.
On the other hand posting less frequently may cause your readers to come back to your blog and respond to comments that they have left previously. The best thing to do will be for you to make some experiments in order to find out what work for your site.
Although there are some more features that may impact your blogging frequency, these are perhaps the 3 most important ones. It might be difficult to decide on the most effective blogging frequency in the beginning but as time goes by you should be able to devise on a productive blogging schedule.
