Class, I've been busy researching the best blogging work-out tips for you, and I'm back today with the TWO best techniques to rip your blog and to achieve those six-pack blog abs. Your six-pack abs will be irresistible to other bloggers, so Listen Up!
My instruction won't include techniques to link-bait, game the system, manipulate or con your blog into the best shape it's ever been in or even attract a gadzillion Digg readers through trickery. No, my six-pack blog system takes dedication, will power, patience, and time, but if you follow my system, your blog ab's will be rock-hard baby!
First Hot Tip For Building Your Blog Abs: Other blog teachers may teach you that cardio is the way to go--spitting out those blog posts day after day and never letting-up until you're out of breath and inspiration. Not me!
It's important to use variable blogging insteady of steady state cardio. What is variable blogging you ask? It's simply blogging whenever you have something you really want to post.
For example, you may have something you want to communicate every day for a week, and then at other times, you may not feel like posting for two weeks. This stop-and-go and resulting recovery period is essential to build strong blog abs and keep your blog muse refreshed and titillated. These short bursts of exertion insure your blog abs will steadily grow stronger, and you won't grow bored with blogging.
After all, who really wants to read your posts day in and day out? Snore!!!
Your core group of readers want excitement, thrills, hot-ness, and spice. Can you do that 24/7? I don't think so.
Second Hot Tip For Building Your Blog Abs: Mix up your blog posts. Surprise people!
If you've hit a plateau with working out your blog's abs, the answer is to mix it up. For example, you've been performing blog squats (also known as leaving a$ kissing comments on the big boyz blogs), and you've hit a plateau with no big-name bloggers leaving comments on your blog or comments are few and far between. You've grown discouraged.
Instead of blog squats, mix-it-up by adding weights to your blog. Adding weights could be anything that's not normal for your blog posts.
If you've got a serious blog, post about something whimsical, funny, or silly. If you've got a tight blog niche, add something totally different. Whatever you do, stop the blog squats!
I am thinking of following this sage advice, even if I've written it myself. Maybe I'll doing something radical like running a blog contest or writing a pay per post or.....gasp, adding Adsense ads! Just kidding on that last one. You will know that your blondalicious teacher has really gone over the edge if you ever see those annoying insect ads on this blog.
I wish to thank the blogger Shaun Low for inspiring this post. And Mr. "Humor-Blogs.com", I hope you're staying in shape. If not, come on over, and I'll give you a work-out!

Hi again! Thanks for this post - you have given me something to think about. I was starting to despair that I wasn't posting enough but you're right - it's more important to actually have something to say :-)

thank you very much! I am glad that my blog has inspired you to write that post. See you around soon :)

So many have the illusion that they have to post daily, but the opposite is true. Only post when you have content that has meaning, whether it be fun, serious or whatever.
I spend far more time researching for my 2 blogs and visiting other blogs to see what people are thinking lol, it works for me!!
Morgan posted at Wednesday, August 08, 2007
How true. I have run into more comments, posts, wherein the author says that posting should be quasi-sporadic, not an everyday thing and you needn't post just to post. You verified what others are saying. Thanks.

Loved it -- and this isn't by way of "link bait". :) I think there should be a work out for those who read blogs religiously yet fail to comment. Something to combat their chronic "stranger anxiety". Just to let us know they're out there and have a pulse. What do you recommend for them? :)

Excellent ideas, Kuanyin! I love a mix of sit-ups (funny simple posts) and heavy weights (bizarre in-depth posts) for my abs (blog). It seems to be working ok!
You've got some killer abs, here! (blog posts)

Excellent post. I used to force myself to post at least 3 times per day but I've recently learned that it is completely OK to go a day or two without posting a thing and you know what.. I survived!
Deborah posted at Friday, August 10, 2007
When I first began my blog, I read numerous articles stating the importance of writing daily for new blogs, adding that it's OK once you've established yourself that your readers will forgive you for missing the odd day.
I've maintained that from the get-go no matter how much it's almost killed me some days to do so. But I will not succumb to posting crap just for the sake of posting.
I came near to missing a day for the first time today when I was dealing with a puter crash. I managed to get the spare laptop set up to write my daily post.
It's interesting to hear others stating they've been reading what you've just stated on other sites. Maybe I'm at a point where I can afford to miss the occasional day without fear of losing readers. A person can only run for so long without crashing from burnout :-)
Excellent post Kuanyin :-)

Interesting - I came thinking I would learn something about six pack abs and instead learned something about blogging.

I love your angle in this article.
I am sure many bloggers shoot themselves in the foot by posting one or more daily mediocre blogpost just because the ebook or darren/chow said so.
Getting into the habit of only posting when you have something to share is what it is all about. But still. Two times a week should be a minimum.
