    Consistency is something a blogger must try to get used to because the more consistent you are the more successful you’ll be. Have you noticed this? You published a post, you really going to get a high traffic immediately you publish because of the promoting. Doing that promotion frequently (by publishing frequently) is what i actually call consistency.
    I love the bracket you used on guest blogging option (limited), actually tons of guest post can spoil a blog’s reputation especially if it has errors and typo, we muct always be careful you know 😉

  12. Hi

    Nice and useful guest post by you at right time. Now a days many bloggers think, blogging is al about posting articles and earning from it. They don’t understand the process of it. Bloggin is kind of online business where we have invested our money and we need to work ourself to get the return of it. But how ?? We need to follow some ethics in it, to be successful.

    And that one ethic is updating your blog regularly which means being consistency in you blog. Can you go to office for 5 days and put leave rest 25 in a months and earn the full salary ?? No never..Same here your blog is the office and you need to come to it regularly and post your contents in it. If you don’t, then be ready to lose the visitors and readers as they would find better and updated information in other blog.

    So always be consistent and be updating your blog. I do mostly post 3-5 articles per week and 1-3 Guest post per month.

    Be consistent in your success always. Thank You

    1. Hope your comment have added some value to my guest post Shathya 🙂

      Yes, I agree with your views related to consistency and insisting the same to the bloggers.

      3-5 blog posts is a big work for me, as am part time blogger. But maintaining 2-3 post constancy for my blog.

      Keep inspiring me with your comment Shathya, thanks for it 🙂

  13. Consistency is definitely a key to success in any field. Blogging needs it even more.

    After you blog for some time and don’t see the results as expected, many times, you feel like quitting or start asking yourself “Am I really doing what matters?”

    This is very natural. Anybody who made another decision in this phase are swiped away by the waves. Those who stand firm through this stage, remain and claim to be an expert.

    Because blogging is a long run game, you must present your presence throughout. Once you are inconsistent, your failure will get a chance to claim you and prove that you are doing nothing good. Good enough to ditch you down.

    Thanks for the tips to remain consistent. Allowing guest posting lets you to keep your blog active even when you are away for some time.

    I’m allowing guest posts and after a number of posts published, I started to feel the difference of an author and a publisher. Being a blogger is both of these two, but how about sticking to any one of these category only? Will I be able to earn easy money being a good publisher?

    1. Thanks for sharing your views related to consistency Suresh, Yeah, I do agree with it.

      Earning easy money as a publisher is good, but did you checked if there is any effect in SERP and some imperative ranking because of accepting too many posts? I feel, it is not good for your blog’s health.

      Blogger or publisher, I wish every blogger should be a good writer and should write for their blog with emotional touch to win the readers heart.

  14. This is very nice Post. I am also a part time blogger & write 2-3 post in a week. I like the way you have describe consistency. it plays the most important role in our blogging Carrier. A consistent blogger can become a pro or Successful blogger.

  15. Hi Nirmala,
    Nice to see you here!
    You are absolutely right about the need to be consistent in posting on one’s blog. Just like we wouldnt like a milkman who delivers milk at 9AM one day and 7AM the next, readers are more likely to trust you and love you if you post regularly and according to a fixed schedule.
