Ede once again has a good thought provoking commentary on his site. I ended up writing quite the comment. I wrote more than I expected to, along with my plans for this site, that I felt I should repost the comment here as well. I would encourage anyone who has a personal website or blog to read both – since it is some very interesting stuff.
Yes, it is critical to have content. What the key element people seem to miss though, is having good fresh content. That is what builds a readership. My own site (Olorinpc.com) is designed mostly for friends. So I building a readership is not the primary goal of the site. Having information about me and what is going on in my life is… which despite whatever aspirations I have of universal adoration and my ego tell me… limits the readership right off the bat.
Actually I intend to redo the site at some point. It still isn’t exactly what I want. About 3-4 years ago I used a static site with a dynamic page built in. That way I was able to have the various static content that I want on my site, poems and pictures. but also have dynamic content. That way is now archaic of course and not practical. So the eventual goal will be to design a static shell for WordPress, so still leaving it with a dynamic backend. It is going to be one heck of a project, but one that once started (and completed) will be personally what I want to see in a personal website. However I digress here.
So when we talk about “post regularity” you hit the nail on the head – it is the purpose behind the site that dictates the frequency in which the site should be updated with fresh content.
