While the effort to go through this mammoth task is commendable,it is imperative we keep in mind niche blogs. Typically, niche blogs do not rely on quantity/frequency since it is inversely proportional to creativity.Quality stuff takes some time to generate.
This is not to say,those who do generate content frequently are not doing a great job.
Everyday blogs,focused on current issues are the most frequent and takes lesser pressure to deliver.In essence one is simply stating and or detailing an incident which occurred in and around their lives – not sure if that’s too difficult to do on a regular basis.
Contests are a good source of inspiration for a few bloggers,though for most its a chance to get “visible” in the maze of the blog world.With most contests still being judged on a popular vote, it works for both the blogger and the host.Some genuinely good content often gets labeled as boring, simply because it does not serve a mass consensus, and some senseless stuff get promoted because the person in question is more popular or visible as the case maybe.
Time is a key element for visibility.The common practice is that more you visit and comment ( specially nice goody-goody stuff)the more visitors you get in return and hence graduate into the so-called “power blogger” zone -in which case whatever you post is certain to hit hundreds of eyeballs.
For the under pressure office worker, weekends are the best bet.If you are married then the chances and scope are lesser as you have different time allotment priorities.That leaves us with a majority college crowd and net savvy housewives who make the most of it,and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
So, in a nutshell,to categorize some blog as a “top” blog or “premium blog” is mostly a misnomer.Similarly,it is also true,that some of the blogs which are popular and top blogs, have some wonderful content and are truly worth spending the precious hour of availability.
As they say,somebody’s crap is someone’s work of art – only mass consensus defines its fate.
