I don’t like doing things just because I’m told to do them. Or when I’m told I have to do them.
And recently I’m feeling a little pressured to keep adding new posts to this site on an increasingly frequent basis.
Where is this pressure coming from?
It’s coming from the web itself.
Both the search engines and social media favor content that is new and fresh. (How often do you check last week’s tweets or last month’s Facebook updates?)
Also, readers seem to favor content that is fresh and new. There is an assumption that posts and articles that are new are somehow better and more valuable than content that was published last week, a month ago or even a year ago.
More and more the web is about what’s happening right now.
