I want some help here. I am curious to know how does one manage the posts of over several thousand people. If the point is to engage with other publishers on WordPress and build a community, how do you engage with such mass?
If let’s say everybody is a frequent poster. If everybody is busy posting who is left to read? And if, we post too frequently is our content actually valued properly?
Similar how Rihanna drops single and albums like panties thrown to Elvis, her songs are frequent but they don’t last through time. Her songs like most artist today, is only for the times. Spiritually speaking these artist are very “present” and in the moment, don’t lager worrying about the future.
But scratch that! Reading blogs requires time and effort and its very time consuming as it requires time and effort. (Yes, I purposely rephrased within a sentence.) I want to know how so you manage your feeds. Do you read a blog a day? Do you spend time reading blogs only for one day? I was thinking maybe posting once a week. Then, all the other days I will take time and read and engage. It sounds like a chore now that I am thinking about it, but it is fair if you want your voice herd.
I’m asking this because there’s a blog that I follow with 42,000 followers. One of his many tips is to post frequently. Which is not a hard thing to do, but this is not Facebook or twitter. I care about my content here much more than those other outlets. This is why I choose to not post about pop culture. That is so cliche. I like reading about real live experiences past present or future. I like read and feel another human through words.
Anyways, how do you view your feed? Do you post only? Comment rarely?
Also, how do you pick who you follow? Do you follow any and everybody ?
