Book Blogger Hop: How many posts do you schedule for your blog on a weekly basis?

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.

I originally saw this on Tessa Talks Books, a really good book blog you should check out!


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

I write on the weekends when I’m not working and schedule reviews for Mon/Tues/Thurs and Nancy Drew book reviews on Friday, which sometimes aren’t written until Wednesday. I generally write every other weekend and schedule up to 15 book or audio book reviews for the upcoming weeks. I do WWW Wednesday because that’s one of my days off and every other blog hop seems to be on days that I’m working. I sometimes post twice a day, but it’s usually early in the morning before I go to work and then right before dinner, after I get home from work, to make sure Word Press didn’t screw up when sending to Social Media outlets. I find 2 times out of 10 the posts are screwed up so I have time to fix it. I also usually post one Kindle or AudioBook deal post on the weekend, so 6 days a week total. On my old blog, during the holiday sales, I’d post up to 10-15 times a day, and never had a day off. That’s just cray-cray.

I personally get turned off by the blogs that post multiple times a day, sometimes posting one right after another. I don’t care what the content is, it starts to get kind of spammy and I usually delete them all, even though they may have good content inside. Usually though, it’s a lot of sponsored content, which is just another ad to me and I’m not interested in another ad, I get enough of those in my inbox. Those sorts of blogs don’t hold my interest, although they probably generate a fair amount of revenue given how often they post.

I can’t say that I’ll participate every week because of my work schedule, but I like some of the upcoming questions, so maybe this will become a regular part of the blog. What do you think?


  1. I totally agree on excessive posting feeling spammy, I too turn off from those blogs.
    I would definitely encourage you to join in with this meme on a weekly basis, I’ve found it to be one of the quickest posts to write, since i just have to answer a question.

  2. You should participate. You don’t have to post on Fridays. It’s open all week starting with Friday. I’m so excited that you saw my post and wrote up your own and love hearing your thoughts ❤️

  3. The main reason I cannot post on a whim is because of my other responsibilities and priorities (including work). Which is why prepping and scheduling is so necessary for me if I want to blog at all. It’s also why I do not post every day. I tried that for awhile and got so overwhelmed. I’ve found a rhythm now that works for me–most of the time, anyway.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

    • I have to agree with you. With an outside job, scheduling becomes necessary if you want to blog. On my old blogs, I did a mixture of both, but I didn’t have a job outside the house, so it was easier to post on a whim. Not so anymore. I’m glad you’ve found something that works for you. I’m still tinkering with my “system”.


  4. I’m not a fan of multiple posts a day either and it’s something I don’t do.
    I tend to write posts at the weekend for the week(s) ahead too. It’s easier to manage things when you work during the week.

  5. I’m thinking of joining in on this meme! Recently, I’ve been posting everyday because I’ve had a lots of things to post and I enjoy creating the posts as it’s a break from my uni work!
