To Blog or not To Blog

In the last week or so I didn’t blog, due to illness and some urgent business issues.

There are several blogging “rules”, two of them are contridicting -one says that you should publish a post every day. The other says not to write crap. It is a kind of an Asimovian conflict of laws .

Not everyday I come across something that is worth writing about. Not every day I have something interesting to say.

So – what is YOUR opinion – is it more important to write everyday, or only when you have something interesting / important / insightful to say?

    I’m among the notion you should write every day, but I don’t practice what I preach. Forcing yourself to write is good because it makes you think even though you may not have much to write about. It’s an exercise of the mind.

    If people are actively reading the blog, I’m sure they would expect a daily source of *something*. They would also expect it to be quality. Perhaps when there is nothing to be written on a certain day, the author could leave an interesting link for the reader to divert to, or just a “hello, here’s my excuse for not writing.”

    We imagine that our newspapers come on schedule, but blogs are a bit more personal – direct to the author. So, I wouldn’t imagine a print columnist to say “I don’t have anything interesting for you today, check this out instead: ___ .” However, it may be appropriate for a blogger.
