Blogging FAQ: How much time do I need to maintain my blog?
A successful blog needs regular updating—at least once per month. When you’re first starting out, allow about two hours to gather your thoughts, select your resources and write your first blog. I’ll be discussing tips for the actual writing process in a later blog post. But I can tell you now that if you don’t like to write, or aren’t good at it, consider hiring a professional writer. You want it to be interesting, and to provide good material for the search engines to find. Plan to block out some time once a month to prepare your blog, or you can work ahead and write two or more at a time. Get away from the office so you won’t be interrupted. Take a trip to a coffee shop in downtown Harrisonburg and bring your laptop!
