Do you blog on the weekend?
If you're a blog reader, do you read blogs on the weekend?
I've found that my traffic is very low on Saturday and non-existent on Sunday.
So I decided it's probably not worth it to blog on the weekend.
What's your opinion?

I blog all kinds of days...the only set day I have to blog is Monday when I put up a menu...I am in a lot of blog hops...and typically those are on the weekends...those get lots of traffic!!! Of course, I typically post to my FB wall, all the groups I am in on FB, and here (just started that) that I have a post up! So, I am sure that helps also. Hopefully you can get your traffic to pick up.
Visit my blog and be inspired!

I've noticed the same thing. People are busy spending time with their family and/or getting some well deserved time for themselves. I do not blog on Sundays and I keep it simple on Saturdays by simply posting a newly made sketch every Saturday ("Sketch Saturday" is what I call it). It's a quick post and it gives people a little something extra to work with if they are crafting on the weekends.

I only blog once a week now. (Friday mornings) I read blogs any day of the week, especially the ones on my blog roll.

I don't blog during the weekend anymore because I'm out with the family.

I read blogs on weekends. That is when I catch up. I use Feedly or Google Reader. I don't go to blogs directly though.

I try to blog every other day. I'll post on the weekend if its really good. I will read blogs any day, since I collect them through my Google Reader.

I only post if I've got something I want to post. I don't do more than one in a day but I might have 2 days in a row or weeks before the next one.
I might sometimes check my blog list whenever I feel like it if I haven't made a post in a bit. But I usually scroll through the blog list whenever I'm posting something.
So.... no schedule. Just fly by the seat of my pants.

BTW - I don't even pay that much attention to the traffic. I don't get hardly any comments and often, none at all.

I don't have time on the weekend to read blogs. Blame the kids and sports. But I do follow almost every weekday.
What are you looking at?

I read blogs through Reader, so I don't know how that affects your stats. I check Reader once a day for any new postings.

I read blogs on weekends.
I also haven't noticed a change in visits on weekends compared to weekdays.

I rarely blog or read blogs during the weekends. Those two days are reserved for family time.

Ha. When I blog (or if I blog), it is definitely a weekday. Same with reading blogs. Rarely do I take the time on a weekend.

i definitely - almost always - do a blog post on sunday for monday - that seems to be the biggest day of the week as far as traffic.
i try to do one mid-week, but since i started school, that's not as easy anymore.
i read whenever something catches my eye. i set up all of the blogs i follow on my side bar on blogger w/ thumbnails - i figured it'd be easier for me to see what's new and it's kind of an "advertisement" for those that follow me...
so, yea... i agree - the weekend are alot more quiet around here...

I check my Google Reader everyday if not 2-3 times. I blog when to think of something or have something to share. I doesn't matter to me when someone blogs. I check the blog thread on my slow days and if I finish one I go to the previous day.
