How (NOT) To Write The Best Damn Blog In The World III

I had done a post back in December of last year called "How To Write The Best Damn Blog In The World" and it's high time for an update because I have new info. I now have the secret to "how (NOT) to write that blog" and here it is, with a plain graphic to explain it all to you.

Don't write at all.

It's that simple. The chart here illustrates quite clearly what happens when I don't write at all, which is what has happened over the last week due to things I'll discuss later, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. People like consistency and frequency, and without critiquing my own writing too much, it doesn't seem to matter what I write at all. In fact, the more I write, and the shorter I write, the more traffic I generate, and the more time people spend on the site. A week of 5 quick soundbites sells better than my usual diet of three a week with two short and one long. It's now a 140 character world folks. Get used to it.

But keep writing.

I'll get back to my snarky satirical political commentary, my mawkish poetry and my unabashed romantic reflections with a dash of marketing and social networking thrown in, but I've learned my lesson. I will keep writing. You do too.
