Why I Blog
Most of these blogs get less than 1,000 visitors per month, and the harsh reality is, the majority of those blogs are, for lack of a better word, failures.

The best time of day to post on Facebook is debatable, with stats ranging from 1:00 p.m. to get the most shares, to 3:00 p.m. to get more clicks, to the broader suggestion of any time between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. It seems that this generally points to early afternoon being a solid time to post, and anytime after dinner and before work being a long shot.

In a world where no distinction is made between good traffic and bad traffic, and where emotion often rules, some will always raise their voice to dominate the conversation; others will pander shamelessly to their readers’ prejudices; others will start online brawls for the fun of it. Sensationalism, dirt, and the ease of formulaic talking points always beckon.
Indeed a good initiative and well sought research but I just wonder in the era of smartphone & advancements in technology where almost all the business activities and work is carried out online how really does it matter whatever the posts or updates are put on different social platforms are dependent on particular timing.

I think writing content for your blog is a very personal thing to do.
