Less Random = Easier Blog Posts

You have heard it time and time again that post frequency will dictate the success or lack of success for your blog. So how do you produce quality content on a daily basis without spending hours and hours hunting for a random idea?

Looking for a random idea that applies to the niche of your blog is very time consuming. Setting up weekly featurettes is a smarter way to blog instead of hunting for random idea’s everyday to post about.

A featurette is my way of saying a post you do each week on the same day on the same topic. Our own blog is setup with 8 featurettes that we post about once a week. An example would be our Geek of the Week which we run a weekly quiz for a yearly cash prize and trophy. Another example is Shoemoney’s Free Shirt Friday.

The benefits to setting up featurettes is it makes it a lot easier to know what topic you will be blogging about today and finding something to post about is a less daunting task. If you do not have a featurette currently on your site, consider adding one or more today.

If you do have featurettes on your site which one’s have worked best for you?
