Quality, not Quantity

Blog publishing company Gawker has started paying their staff bloggers based on how many people visit their site, instead of how many posts they write. 

This is good. 

Let’s focus on writing things worth reading and sharing.  Most of us have better thing to do than read 15 posts per day from one blog.  Give me one great idea.

(FYI, I usually try to post 2 times per day. A substantial post in the morning and something lighter in the afternoon. Like a picture of a monkey.  I also tend to write a week’s worth of posts in one sitting. I like to sit down and plan what I’m going to write. The downside is that I’m not doing much real-time responding to what other blogs say, but I think plenty of other blogs have it covered.)

    I wonder if this can back-fire though because bloggers become consumed by just how many people visit their site, versus, the content.

    I agree that Quality of information is more important than Quantity. Who has the time to read endless entries from various sources? I prefer a great idea that I can reflect and inplement into my strategies
