Some folks have gotten in touch with me and let me know that I should be scheduling my posts. I’ve been doing that. Then, people have told me I have too many posts and to schedule them far apart. I’ve also done this and I try not to publish more than 5 posts in a day with the first one generally being published at 7AM with about 3 to 4 hours of space between each post. I’ve now received some complaints that getting notifications in their RSS reader for 5 posts one day with none the next two days and then 5 more posts is too much. If I had my way, I would have 5 WordPress posts published every single day but consistency in blogging is quite a battle, even with future post scheduling.
The answer to this is to drop the RSS feed or in addition to the feed, signup to receive a daily digest via email from FeedBurner which contains all posts created in that day. If I didn’t publish any posts, you don’t receive any email. This keeps the noise level down while at the same time, giving you an overview as to what was discussed on the blog throughout that day.
