If, as a blogger/writer, you’re scheduled to post certain days, but you’ve no real (edifying/entertaining) content, should you publish?
It’s a conundrum, to be sure. My commitment is never missed: Wednesdays and Saturdays always feature a post. The topics are related to the theme of my blog: writing, blogging, editing, and the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series. Now and then, I’ll add something “motivational”—how to remain positive, staying focused, finding time to blog/write, and so forth. I rarely stray from the theme . . . unless giving a personal update.
Some days and even weeks, the brain fog is thicker than the peasoupers found in Ripper’s Whitechapel haunts (let’s see how well the recently ordered Prevagen really works). Still, I’ll post on those two days. After all, I’ve committed!
But those posts aren’t always good (i.e., I’m not that pleased with them). They can prove humdrum, even bad (though I’d prefer to think those are few and far between).
So, to post or not to on those days when the ol’ gray matter isn’t cooperating? When one’s well—for the interim—has run dry? Does one toss something onto the blog for the sake of respecting the commitment (and hope for the best)?
. . . It’s a conundrum, to be sure.
