This Friday I was going to discuss book genres. But something else has been pressing on me, so I’m going to discuss and ask for some advice on post frequency.
I have a specific posting schedule that I usually follow:
Monday-Thursday are book reviews
Friday was blog hop, and is now a discussion post
Saturday is for On My Wishlist
Sunday is for In My Mailbox
Giveaways are posted either instead of a review post, or for hops, whenever it is scheduled to start
I like this schedule, but I am finding that I am reading a lot of books, and have more reviews then scheduled posting days. Up to now I have been simply scheduling them for the next available open date. But I am getting quite a future-log. As of today, I only have 3 review dates still open near the end of July. Which means I am almost fully scheduled for the next two months!
That seems really far in the future to me. I feel bad reading and writing a review, and then not posting it until that far in the future.
So I’ve been thinking about how to reduce my future-log. Should I post reviews 7 days a week, in addition to my weekend non-review posts, which gives me an extra 3 posts? Or should I start posting 2 reviews on my review days? I did this a while ago when I posted fiction reviews in the AM and non-fiction/children reviews in the PM. Or should I just keep scheduling into the future?
What do you think I should do?
