"If I start a blog, how often do I need to post?"
The simple answer is, "As often as you want."
People blog for two main reasons - to share information and to increase visibility.
For the casual blogger who is looking to share information about personal interests, I would recommend not forcing it and posting when you are inspired. Make it fun!
For the blogger who is using Patch as a means to increase their visibility within the community, either for a business or an organization, my recommendation is to post as often as possible.
Patch readers visit our websites at all different times during the month. Some visit more than others. The more frequently you post the more chance you have at catching the attention of all our monthly readers.
And when you do post, don't post everything at once. If you have multiple posts ready to go, spread them out during the week!
