I’ve noticed a trend in my blogging pursuits. The articles that I write that are the best-written, most researched, headline-friendly and totally Diggable, quickly fade away with a whimper. Yet blog entries that are thrown together, posted for the sake of posting with minimal thought, bring in the most traffic.
At first I thought that maybe I was over thinking things or being extreme. But no, it’s a fact. I rarely see a payoff for articles that I pour my heart and soul into.
It’s starting to frustrate me.
I’m curious to hear from you. Have the articles you expected to perform well done so? Or, have you been surprised by the success on a ‘thoughtless’ post?
Let’s see if we can identify any trends.
