Earlier this year, I set myself a target of writing 34 blog posts in one month.
Here is the blog where I said this:
Did this prove to be a mission impossible and just empty talk or nonsense?

No, I actually managed to achieve this goal so it was “Mission accomplished”!

You may be wondering where is the proof…yes?
Well here’s the proof: http://jahanc.wordpress.com/2012/02/29/34-blogs-this-month-mission-accomplished/
1. So I achieved my goal of 34 blogs a month.
2. In that month, February, I doubled what I had done in January which was 17.
3. I doubled my blog output but increased the views to my site by 4 times. So a 100% increase in work and a 400% increase in hits.
4. I could not write less than 300 words.
5. Everything had to be original content and not copied from elsewhere.
6. It had to be beneficial to my readers.
Though I imposed a minimum of having to type 300 words on myself, with me having to be type material which was completely original and beneficial, I did not have to type with my legs hanging from the ceiling, like Tom Cruise did in the film “Mission Impossible”!

I am now going to blog more regularly and not impose any minimum-word limit for my blogs. This is a very liberating feeling. I can increase the amount of new blogs that I produce thus increasing the number of visitors I get as each blog will be about different topics and contain different search words. This frequency of output and content also means that my visitors will keep on coming back for more and more as they know that there will always be something new, and hopefully interesting, useful or fun (you decided if it is not me), for them to read.
This will also include posting more pictures and readers and my blog followers will become accustomed to seeing more new nice pictures on my blog every day.
So the point is you do not necessarily have to have super-duper long Phd-style articles to get people visiting your blog, even short posts or “micro-blogging” can do the trick and this is what I will be demonstrating in the month of September, in the same way that in February I demonstrated that the only way to success is hard work, hard work and more hard work.
Have a great day.
