I Am All Prepared For Blogging In September

Wow! Time has flown!

It is time for bloggers to get their creative juices flowing for the month of September (The only way a blogger is getting away from this one is if they are going on a planned hiatus).

I have read where bloggers have struggled immensely in the area of creating content for their blog; those types of people tend to sigh loudly whenever it is time for them to add another blog post to their blog (By the way, if you happen to be one of those people, you can learn to lighten your so-called burden by reading, 10 Ways To Come Up With Topics For Your Blog).

Blogging should not feel as though you are serving some type of prison sentence and you are eagerly awaiting an end to that punishment period; it is supposed to feel like any activity that you truly enjoy.

If you can find innovative ways of making blogging fun for you, there is a high probability of you completing your quota of blogging for the month of September with ease.

So, my friend, are you prepared for blogging in September?

August Was An Interesting Month For Blogging

A small percentage of those people that I am following said that they were taking some time off from blogging in the month of August (I was okay with that because everyone deserves a vacation-period).

I observed that the number of daily views was not as high as the other months of the year (Well, that is to be expected since a lot of people take their vacation during Summertime).

On a positive note, there are always those people who will continue to interact with us throughout the entire year (And, where WordPress is concerned, it is rare for a blogger to feel lonely).

Since the month of August is usually a hot one, I did my best to remain hydrated by drinking lots of liquid (It would be difficult for me to remain fully focused on blogging if I was severely dehydrated).

I allowed nothing to keep me back from getting my quota of blogging done (And, it was quite easy since I publish content on my blog every Saturday at 19:30 GMT).

What about you?

Were you able to get your quota of blogging done for the month of August?

We Should See A Spike In Readership For The Month Of September

I believe that we will see a spike in the readership in the month of September for the following reasons:

  • A lot of bloggers are back from their hiatus.
  • A lot of new people created WordPress blogs of their own (And, those people will be looking for fellow WordPress bloggers to interact with).
  • There are a bunch of bloggers who believe in blogging every single day of the week (Therefore, those people will also be looking for fellow WordPress bloggers to interact with).

Do you expect to see a spike in your readership for the month of September?

By the way, if you are a new blogger, you can have fun with the entire blogging process while your readership grows.

For those of you who have trouble attracting readers, I highly recommend that you read, How to Get Blog Readers [10 Remarkable Ways To Get More People to Your Blog] by Moss Clement.

I Intend On Supporting My Fellow Bloggers Right Through The Month Of September

Hey, if I have been supporting my fellow bloggers throughout the other months, I might as well continue to do so for the month of September (After all, September is merely another month on the Gregorian calendar).

Now, I am not going to ask whether or not if you are going to support your fellow bloggers for the month of September, because I intuitively know that the answer is, “Yes!”

I genuinely believe that a blogging community needs to be supportive of each other.

Luckily for us bloggers, the WordPress community is a supportive one!

I Will Continue To Be A Mentor For New Bloggers For The Month Of September

It is no huge secret, that there are lots of new bloggers who will be in need of help (I will freely provide my help in the form of blogging tips on my blog).

You are also free to show the newcomers to WordPress the proverbial ropes of blogging.

Most people who have ventured into blogging blindly will be in need of help (That is the way in which the figurative cookie crumbles, my friend).

The more newbie bloggers we help is the fewer people that abandon their blogs (And, I hate to see abandoned blogs in the blogosphere).

At the moment, there is a percentage of people who look forward to reading your blog posts whenever they are published (Unknowingly, you are a mentor to some of those people).

September Is Going To Be A Challenging Month For A Lot Of Bloggers

September is the month in which a lot of people go back out to work (Or back out to school).

A lot of people will have to utilize their time wisely; which would be vital in finding the time to create content for their blog.

Now, most busy people would go insane if they had to come home from a hard day’s work to create and publish content on their blog (Which in itself can be demanding).

Busy people can settle for publishing content on their blog weekly.

My article, Scheduling Blog Posts Are A Lifesaver, will teach busy people the importance of scheduling their blog posts.

Once you start scheduling your blog posts, you will end up asking yourself, “Why is it that I was not scheduling my blog posts before?”

The month of September will be challenging for most bloggers, but the good news is that challenges can be overcome.

Final Thoughts

When a person has been blogging for years, they know without a doubt, that they will get their quota of blogging done no matter what life throws at them.

People who are new to all of this will feel as though they can pull their hair out.

However, I do know for a fact, that the blogging process gets easier each time that you do it.

I am also expecting more views, comments and a higher level of interaction for the month of September.

May the month of September be an auspicious one for you and your blog.

And, thank you for reading!

  1. For me one month is the same as the other because I don’t bother with views much, unless there is a spike in them. But September is special for me because on the 6th it will be one year of blogging for me!

  2. I’ve noticed a number of my regular readers have been online much this month, so I’m looking forward to September and hopefully being able to see some of those folks a little more regularly.

  3. When I started my blog in May, I was prepared with 8 articles. My plan was to post once a week, but I quickly realized I should post at lease twice a week to keep myself relevant. I used up my stash of articles, and now I find myself writing for my next post. At first, I was stressing about it. I had to let my expectations go and just go with the flow. I am concerned about running out of content to write about, but I figure I can just create another category and let the old juices flow. I never know what my next article is going to be about until I’m done with the one I’m writing. It makes it kind of exciting for me. I like that it’s my blog, and I can write about anything I want. I love the blogging world, and I’m so happy I joined the blogging community. You’re all such a great bunch of people! I enjoyed your article and your blog. 🙂

      1. Yes I’ve been pleasantly surprised. It has turned into a labor of love. Strange because I always thought my happiness would come from writing a book. Life works in mysterious ways. Thanks, Marie 🙂 (Gonna go check out your blog now.)

  4. You’re so right about WordPress being a supportive community. When my grandmother passed away, a lot of the people who reached out to me and comforted me were bloggers. It’s such a unique and wonderful community.

      1. Thank you. I am too. She was a wonderful lady, and I still miss her. I guess that that never goes away. But yes, WordPress is probably one of the most supportive and positive communities I have been a part of. I’m sure that there are dark sides to it as well, but, luckily, I haven’t been subjected to those parts thus far.

  5. I’ve never paid attention to my monthly view count. I do check it out daily but only out of curiosity, if there’s a day that’s not had many views I put it down to people being busy, I don’t get worked up worrying that it’s my content. Plenty of times I’ve had more views the following days of those initially low-viewed posts, so I just woudn’t worry about views per month and I guess it can also depends also on the type of blog you have. Great tips and I hope you have a great September of blogging 🙂

  6. “I publish content on my blog every Saturday at 19:30 GMT”

    Whoa! Sounds like you’re keeping to a schedule, like you’re a cog in the gearbox. That can’t be fun. :/ I won’t ever let some self-imposed time schedule rule over my blogging habit. I publish posts whenever I feel like it. Then, there and on the spot! And my output swings between 0 and 10 daily posts. I don’t care. Only now, after you mentioned it, yes, I guess there was a slump in views and comments during August.
    All those people who struggle to make blogposts … I don’t get ’em. Why tf did you create a blog in the first place? Was chic, the fashionable thing to do? Forget it then, blogging ain’t for you. The last couple years I even blogged during the short stopover on our flight day from Cape Town to Hamburg, made a photo and wrote a short “Hoohoo!” from Amsterdam Schiphol airport. 🙂 And voila, another blogpost added. On the go. And some ppl struggle to publish even one post/mth. Hmmm… 🙂

      1. Good for you, Renard. Well, I’m not disciplined enough to wait 6 days before blogging, get crazy and antsy already when I didn’t publish anything in a couple hours. :/

  7. Thank you for the handy dandy information as always Renard😊

    I tried looking at my stats board and gave up, so I dont think about it; I’m able to focus on posting for fun or just communicating with the blogosphere. But since I’m going to embark on another blog consisting of advice column, I’ll probably check more for that reason

  8. Having blogged since February 2014, the only time of the year, I have noticed a decline in the number of views and comments on my blog is during the last two weeks in December, Renard. I only published four new blog posts last month, but the amount of views and comments those four posts got resulted in me having one of my best months ever for views and comments. I’ve partly put this down to me spending more time on drafting posts

    I suppose it’s the content of what I wrote about, but I didn’t notice a slowdown of any kind in traffic (even though Augsut 2019 saw me publish the lowest amount of blog posts since I started blogging). However, I did notice a lot of new visitors to my blog who left comments, so maybe they made up for those who may have taken a break last month?

    As I’m only planing four new blog posts in September, it’ll be interesting in seeing how the stats weigh up compared to August.

    1. 🙂 That is interesting, Hugh. December was somewhat of a slow month for you (In spite of not seeing some of the bloggers whom I interacted with, my blog did well).

      Content that pertains to blogging advice usually does well throughout the year.

      By the way, Hugh, you are a very popular blogger; so people are eager to peruse your blog posts whenever they are published.

      May the month of September be a splendid one for you, my friend.

  9. Hi Renard,

    I’m back from my blogging hiatus myself and I totally agree with everything you’ve said here. I do expect September to be a great month of blogging as well as a spike in views. Most people settle down in that month. During my break, I’ve managed to work on lots of great content for the upcoming months. I’m excited and I’m sure my reader’s will be to.

    I look forward to your next post on Saturday.

  10. It always saddens me when I see someone I follow disappear but I understand that blogging in some cases can take up a lot of time in some people’s lives. Love visiting and reading what everyone is up to, it is a really nice community. I always look forward to reading about everyone’s adventures and just reading advice from others. You always have great tips, thank you for all the encouragement you send out to everyone. I took August off and now I have a lot of catching up to do. I did not get to accomplish all my goals so I am still working on them but having a lot of fun learning how this all works. Have a great Sunday.

  11. I had to laugh when I read that blogging is not a prison sentence and that you should enjoy it. I have to admit, I thought August was a tough month, but it turned out to be my best month ever since I began blogging in the first place. So, that really pumped me up!!!
    I’m thrilled that we are beginning a new season… my creative juice is flowing and I’ve been preparing for September for the last few weeks.
    Renard, I always love reading your posts because of your advice and upbeat perspective. It truly helps me!!! For this, I thank you profusely. 🤗

  12. I love the idea of scheduling your blog posts! It takes some of the stress away when you have specific times to write and post. I love all the advice and mentor-ship it’s super helpful and appreciated. I’m going to take a look at the links you’ve added in. This blogging this is wonderful and maddening all at once but I’m in it! Thank you 😊

  13. Blogging, when turned to a habit, can me much easier to do.

    What is this about September being a thing for bloggers?

    Ah, I thought there was some kind of event or challenge thing— rather, it seems it is due to life events, in general?

    Yes, we should be more open to helping new people in the blogosphere. The more the merrier, right?

  14. As a newish blogger, you seem to have written this with me in mind. I started my blog sometime ago but only wrote sporadically but I picked it back up in a more serious tone and have seen a steady uptick in traffic since this past “back to school” week. This was a fantastic post and I look forward to reading more of your “tips” posts about blogging! ✌️

      1. Ha, good catch. I guess that’s why you mention proof-reading your comments. I meant me as the “newish blogger”! After a second glance, my original comment was poorly written. 😩

  15. Great post, Renard. I love that you remind us blogging should not feel like a prison sentence. If it does, perhaps it is time to reevaluate blogging altogether or what you are writing about 🙂

    I do believe great success comes from simply planning things out well. Write headlines ahead of time when ideas come to you, find inspiration on other’s blogs, schedule posts – whatever you need to do when you have a little more time.

    I have been incredibly impressed with the support within the WordPress community. Some very large businesses use this platform to power their site and there is a reason! When you encourage someone else, chances are they are more than willing to do so in return for you. That’s beautiful teamwork!

    Thanks for another great post 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful day and rest of the week ahead ♥
