One of the tips that I often give to new bloggers is to post often. The more frequently you add new content, the more often readers will come to see what you’ve got. But this concept in blogging also poses a few problems.
First, coming up with new posts and actually sitting down to research, write and format them is a lot of work. Second, unless you have email subscriptions set up - something I think all blogs should have! - readers are more likely to miss the posts that you work so hard to turn out. And even then, some of those emails might start piling up when readers get busy. I know I’ve missed quite a few posts from my favorite blogs of late.
Sometimes, posting really great content just once in awhile can be a good thing. This is one of the things I love about Torque Story. This is a newer bead blog, written by the funny and talented Geneva, whose jewelry designs are delightful. Along with these gems, posts on Torque Story include lots of interesting insights into beading and jewelry making, craft fairs, color and inspiration. At Torque story, every post has a purpose - there’s no scrambling for content and no regurgitation. It’s a great place to catch some good beading vibes.
