While I was researching summer blogging for a post, it was very clear that I am not the only one that is writing about summer blogging. It was noticeable that they were not writing about what I thought they were; many bloggers, big and small, are notifying their readers that the flow of posts are going to be slowing down over the summer months.
I was thinking this is great that people are taking a break from work and relaxing, and then I thought – great – this is the time to pull my blog up in ratings!
I searched 4 or 5 popular niches, and came up with almost the same results, here are some examples:
- “Hey everyone! Sorry about not posting yesterday. Summer is starting here.”
- “Summer Blogging. I know my blogging has been a bit lax lately. Unfortunately, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.”
- “ I don’t know about you, but summers get crazy for me.”
- “That’s right. I am taking a summer off from blogging.”
Don’t Join Them
Don’t join them. Be the source of fresh new content for your niche even during the summer months. Believe me, your readers are out there. Today, very few blog-reading citizens of the world turn off their connectivity for more than a day or so – if that. Therefore, while other bloggers are sliding down that big slide with their children, nephews, nieces, and cousins, you will be posting great summer-related blogs.
