Simply put, YES! Consistency really does pay off. You may ask, what can I expect if I am consistent? Will it help me gain more followers? People, in this case your blog readers will come to recognize that your continually posting relevant information that they can use or that their interested in reading.
Consistency of the topics you write about will also help. If you are posting on how to cook the perfect egg and the next day post about wind mills for electric power you are going to loss out. If your blog is about food then niche it down if possible, are you mostly baking, or maybe it’s soups. Once you have a focus, a primary niche do your best to stick with it. You can then make a “Miscellaneous” category if you must and put your various ramblings in their. Keep in mind that category should be used in a ratio of let’s say 1 to 5 niche posts. Don’t go over board, besides you can always start another blog for your other interests.
