Here’s something I’ve been going back-and-forth on for years – should I be writing my blog posts in the morning before my work day kicks off, or in the evening? While I find I’m generally more mentally “on” in the morning, I also have a lot more distractions as these are particularly busy times for Bold Metrics and our mornings tend to be jam-packed.
At the same time, I find that after an insanely busy day, it usually takes me longer to do the research and put together what I need to in order to get a post out there. The advantage to writing posts in the evening is that I don’t have any distractions, so while I might be mentally drained, I don’t have to worry about a lot of interruptions.
I’ve tried to look at my analytics data to see if posts perform better in the morning or in the evening but it’s really hard to know since I generally see that the topic of the post reins supreme when it comes to reads. On that note, I’ve found this year that people seem to be enjoying articles about what other domain investors are doing to sell domains, like my article yesterday.
All that being said, I’m writing this blog for you – my reader, so I’m interested to know when you generally read blogs. Do you wake up and dive into domain blogs or is it something you enjoy after work, maybe with your favorite tasty beverage?
