Communicating your schedule to your audience somehow sets a great expectation for them.
It’s important to mix up your topic of conversation every once in awhile if you tend to write about similar things. Varying topics can give your audience a little refresher and keep them excited to check back. Even varying from a standard blog post, you could do a FAQ, topic-driven list, or a video to spice things up.
