Every day some say, while others say weekly, some say every other day, and a few say twice a day.

How Often Should You Publish On Your Blog
Honestly it–like most aspects of blogging–depends.
Are you trying to make a living blogging?
Is it something you do for fun?
What’s your goal?
If your trying to gain tons of traffic, or make a living Blogging then you’ll need to put in extra work. Meaning that you should Publish once, or twice daily.
If your Blogging trying to gain followers, and become some sort of influencer than you only really need to Publish 3-5 times a week.
If your trying to start a movement, or if your blog is made to spread awareness or anything in that category than once a week is perfect.

The most successful websites generally publish a minimum of 5 times a day.
A Content/Entertainment site like Cracked.com will publish around 5 times a day.
Then there’s General Population sites as I call them. Websites like The Huffington Post, and People. Websites that break Scandals, and produce Gossip. They’ll Publish every 1-2 minutes, with HuffPo Publishing as much as every 30 seconds!
