The Procrastination Effect {part II}

running_dry

415 views

I would like to take a step back from physics to propose another law on the effects of procrastination on the APlusPhysics blogs. I have already explored the relationships between amount of procrastination and both quality of blog posts and hours slept the night they are due. Every time I refresh the "dashboard" page five new posts pop up, and I have noticed that the same posts don't stay on the front page for very long. It would seem that we are all hurting ourselves in terms of views by all waiting until the last possible second to do these because in the time that it takes to write the next post, your last post has already disappeared, never to be seen again by anybody. On the other hand increased site traffic might expose your blog to more potential readers. All of this of course really only matters if you care about how many people read your posts (I do, just because I take the time to write them). I could also be mistaken about how the dashboard works....
