If you go over to Books At Midnight, you will see that instead of a weekly poll, Jenn has started a weekly debate. Her question of the week is this:
Bloggers, when do you think is the best time to post: morning, noon, evening? Readers, when do you like to see a blogger post?
My initial reaction is that it doesn't matter, but I think that's because I tend to not notice schedules and don't hold other people to them. My own personal preference used to be to write my posts and check for other posts first thing in the morning, but then I started sleeping in, or a crisis or two would happen in the morning, and I had to move my posting/reading time to later in the day. At the moment, I'm digging my evening hours in the blogging world as a way of unwinding from my day, but I'm sure that will change when I've had a bad day and don't feel like posting at night... For me personally, I hadn't given much thought to whether my readers would be upset or turned off if I didn't post during a particular time. But then Jenn brought up an interesting point in her take on the debate: Does the time of day you post affect your ability to get comments from readers? So now I'm questioning my own posting habits and wondering if they should be more regular.
What is your take on the debate?
While I welcome your comments on the debate here, I also encourage you to check out the original over at Books At Midnight and also leave a comment there (or even provide a link to your own posting on the debate).
