How many are not enough?

by Suw on September 1, 2004

Mark over at Weblog Tools Collection asks “How many posts are too many posts?” and compares a selection of blogs with different posting frequencies. He doesn’t really come to a conclusion, other than that it depends quite a bit on post length and type.
For me, it also depends on how much time I have to catch up with updated blogs and how much I enjoy reading that particular writer. When time is short, I prefer blogs that don’t update too often and avoid those that do, simply because seeing too many unread posts in my aggregator can be a bit overwhelming. Instead of thinking “Cool! Lots to read!” I think “I’m never going to get through that lot in time” and so I never start on the backlog.

You hit this right on the nose! I really enjoy your weblog and I was so fascinated to find you discussing this exact issue after having had a conversation with a friend on the topic last night. I'll be visiting here often, do you mind if I add you to my blog list?

OK… this post is obviously spam. First time I saw it over on Strange Attractor I thought it was a genuine comment, but I keep seeing it over and again on different posts, replicated word-for-word. So it has to be spam… what I don't get is what the point is? There's no url!
