The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Question:

How many posts do you schedule for your blog on a weekly basis?  

(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)


Answer:

I post 5 routinely:

  1. Sunday – Sunday Post (all about my week – bookish and non-bookish)
  2. Tuesday – Book Review
  3. Wednesday – WWW Wednesday – what I’m reading this week
  4. Thursday – Book Review
  5. Friday – Book Blogger Hop – each week a new bookish question

If there is anything extra I need to post, it’s usually a book review and I will put it on Saturday or Monday, if I have that option. Dave at The Write Reads determines when he’d like the book reviews I do for his blog tours posted, so that is often an extra post on whichever day I’m scheduled for.

I prefer to keep it to one post per day. I feel bad for the people who follow me via email because some weeks I feel like I must be blowing up their inboxes. I have to admit, that is always in the back of my mind when I’m scheduling posts.

How many posts do you schedule each week? How do you feel about multiple posts per day as the person posting them or the person reading them?

  1. I love seeing your posts and getting to read them almost every day! Some bloggers do post several times a day every day, but, as long as it’s related to books, I don’t mind. I always need something to read, haha!

  2. I don’t tend to post more than once a day, unless one is purely a promo post. I have spotted a couple of bloggers who post multiple times a day, it’s not too bad if they are short posts but when several of them are rambly – or just bland carbon copy promotions – then I do find it off putting. Quality over quantity for me – which perfectly describes your blog!

    1. Thank you! You are so kind 🥰. You know, I don’t really like promo posts. I do them sometimes to help out blog tours when I can’t possibly read and review another book, but I don’t feel like they have the desired effect.

      1. I would agree, as a reader I tend to pass them by if there isn’t a review. It’s the review I’m interested in.

  3. Ah I don’t have a schedule but I see to it I have a review every day. No idea how long I can do that. Nothing is scheduled as I finish reading on the day I post

      1. Nopes, I have my blog tour books on my google calendar, Rest is whichever cover grabs my attention. and I read and review and publish the post.

  4. I don’t mind multiple posts as they give me the idea of what books are released. The blogs are the only way where I get to see different genre of books as long as they have a cover which I can see via my phone app.

  5. I post at least 3 posts a day. 2 normal posts (review, tour/promo, or another fun bookish post) and then depending on the day a daily post (like Monday’s First Sentence or Friday’s Page 69). I at times do worry I post too much (though that is mostly because of how people whine about quality over quantity as if because you post a lot you don’t have quality which is just a big pile of steaming BS in my eyes, I work hard for my blog, I take care that each post is made with love and has interesting content, that there is variety, and more.).I do spread my posts over the day. Like my daily posts are always mid-evening, the other posts are morning-afternoon.
    As for scheduling, I used to only schedule Tours, ARCs, and if I had vacations (so I could just chill but still have something up), but these days I got at least 1 or so week planned, at least normal posts. Though that doesn’t mean I do nothing. I still got new books I read to review, or I find a new book tag, or I get a new Tour/Promo to do. Or there is background work (tags/updating review archives, etc.) to do for my blog.
    Haha, sorry for the long reply! This comment just kept getting longer and longer. Great post, liked reading your thoughts on this matter.

    1. I don’t know why I’m so conscious of doing it, because it doesn’t normally even phase me when other bloggers do it. And, I agree – your posts are always quality. I loved reading your thoughts ❤️

  6. I don’t go online on weekends to read or write posts. I’m lucky to visit bloggers I like every day of the week. And if I manage one post a week, I’m overjoyed. I don’t know where you prolific posters find the time. But I applaud you.

  7. I do 3-4 posts per week. I only do WWW every other week because it may be the same books featured if it was a slow reading week for me, lol. I’m not usually online over the weekend to read blogs. Like you, I try not to post more than once per day.

    1. I didn’t use to be online over the weekend, but I had to post something last summer, I think, and realized that I had a good number of different people who look at my posts over the weekend, so I decided to switch my Monday post to Sunday and participate in the Sunday Post meme. And I enjoy not having a post on Monday because it gives me time to set up the rest of the posts for the week. 😊

    1. Oh, thank you! They are just a fun little way to talk about what your reading without a full review. I like that 😊. I look forward to seeing yours if you do it!

  8. The only time I got to post everyday, was in December when I was on Holiday. You are very well organized! I like your planning.

    I don’t get to pre-schedule on the blog, the best I do, is my daily planner…. I also take part in a few memes, but I don’t post every week. With the exception of The Sunday Post. I hardly ever skip that one. I think it keeps me organized as well.

    I also did a Book Blogger Hop, but I’m obviously still in 2020 and my answer is for this week’s question, but last year…

    Have a good weekend!

    1. It’s confusing because he still has 2020 up and it’s first. You have to scroll all the way through 2020 to get to 2021. And thank you! I have to keep it organized or I’d probably take on way more than I can deliver.

  9. That’s a great amount of posts per week! I do the same thing – stick to one post per day… maybe as my blog grows that may change but I kind of like the idea of just one featured post each day! Everyone seems to really like the Sunday posts so I’m thinking I may hop on that hop lol! It seems like something that lets you get organized for the week and maybe rant/ramble a little bit about other things too!

    1. I enjoy the Sunday Post. I started doing it late this past Fall. I hope you do try it out. I look forward to seeing your post 🙂

  10. I wish I had the drive to post every day! I think it’s great that you are so organized. As a blogger, I think that scheduling more than one a day would quickly lead to burnout. And as a reader, one a day is totally reasonable.

    1. I think if I posted reviews all those days, I would definitely burn out. Reviews take much more time and energy. I like the bookish memes because they are so different from reviews and writing them utilizes a whole different skill set.

  11. It’s always fun to see how other bloggers post – 5 seems like a manageable number! Mine varies a lot, so I think I would benefit from creating a structure for myself. This year I’ve started doing some of the bookish memes so that at least is a good start for a schedule. Now I just need to schedule out my reviews more and then I’ll be golden!

    1. I use google calendars and slip them all in (and color coded to boot). 😆 I prefer a schedule because that is my comfort zone. I know what to expect and so do my followers.

  12. I rarely subscribe to blogs via email (I use Inoreader, which is like a feed rwsder) because I can hardly handle all the email I get already. LOL With Inoreader, all the blogs I follow are on there, and I can read posts at my own rate without feeling overwhelmed by a full mailbox.

    I don’t post every day and don’t really want to. It’s not sustainable (for me) and I find I can’t keep up with comments and reciprocal visits if I try to do more than I am now (and even then I sometimes struggle). I think it’s awesome that you are able to do as much as you do. And others too. I think it’s important for bloggers to do what works best for them.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. A number of people do it that way. I’m just a schedule freak. It helps me keep from being lazy 😊 because I definitely would put things off if I could. The book I’ve been working on writing for years is a good example of that.

  13. I try to avoid multiple posts on one day as I figure people would only read the “top” one on the blog feed or their inbox.
    I love seeing this week’s answers as people really have different routines when it comes to their blogging. 🙂

    1. I’ve been surprised by how much response I’ve gotten this week. I use to notice a decline in one post over the other if two or more posts went out in a day but now it doesn’t seem to make a difference. I still like to have just one per day, though, unless I have no choice (like tomorrow) 🙂

  14. When I was JUST a book blogger I had 5/week Mon-Fri: It’s Monday, What Are You Reading. Book Review. Waiting on Wednesday. Book Review and I don’t remember what I use to post on Fridays lol. But I managed to get months worth done that way lol. This was before Pinterest and IG and hardly anyone used Twitter.

    For this blog I have 3/week: Monday Mindful Manifestation, Book Review/other post, Friday Finds. I’m trying to find a way to fill at least 2 more days but I’m so indecisive lol.

  15. Great post!

    As I’ve only just got back into the swing of things, I try to get out a couple every weekday (drafting all over the weekend) – if I don’t manage it, then none! But, I’ll use those days to promote previous posts Facebook and Twitter instead!
