I think this can be helpful for beginners as many I have coached and spoken with tend to quit before they ever see more than a trickle of traffic. Some expect to write a couple of blog posts and see results from just two or three posts. Having a baseline or a goal to shoot for before evaluating the success of a blog is helpful.
For me, I have seen a good amount of traffic on a few blogs when I have hit about 50 or right around 150 blog posts. Really has depended on the niche and the overall strategy for me.
So, I am turning it over to all of you bloggers and marketers out there. How many blog posts did it take before you felt like you started to really see a difference in traffic/income on your blog?
