Will you help me decide?

I’m trying to figure out how to be more consistent and helpful with the blog. So will you help me decide?

A: shorter posts more often, like quick Godin posts that have something you can think about

B: long posts like the ones you normally see here, exploring a concept in some depth

C: a combination of both

What would be helpful? Post in the comments.

    I say mostly B, with the occasional A when it’s timely like during a conference.

    I am exhausted after reading Avinash’s blog posts, but I find them more more actionable and insightful than Seth’s. I think only Seth can get away with his posts!

  2. I say a mixture. It’s good to keep us readers on our toes.

  3. I’d say a mix. I have to agree with Todd on the Avinash-style posts, but little ones are nice too if you just want to put an idea out there. Sometimes we can work out the rest.

  4. I say go B. I really, really dig they way David Cummings approaches his blog. It’s one brief post a day and it’s usually on point for his target audience. If you want to get meta, here’s his reasoning on publishing a daily blog post.

  5. @radamr: er. A, not B. Duh. Sorry.

  6. It’s a struggle for me too… writing very insightful posts takes a hell of a long time and ROI isn’t obvious. If you tell to much people run away with it and abuse your willingness to share (i.e. blatent use of your work, no reference, etc.)

    If you want to sustain daily (or almost) posts, it’s difficult to come up with great inspiration that will catter to your audience…

    I guess the answer is not as much in what people want, but in what you are willing to offer…

    C is the way to go in my mind and maybe get soem guest bloggers to fill the gap.

    The real question is what do you want to do?

    I think Stéphane and Topher have the right question. I think we’d all like to write/read daily extensive thought-provoking masterfully written works of art, but that might not be realistic!

    I like Topher’s idea of guest bloggers. It’s helpful that the name of your blog isn’t your own name. There must be some other analytics folk in Atlanta that can contribute!
