Loved to read your blog. I would like to suggest you that traffic show most people read blogs on Mondays. So it should encourage bloggers to write new write ups over the weekend primarily.

Hi there, and thanks for your response. We actually do write a lot of our blog articles over the weekend, but the statistics we've seen show Monday to be the worst day for traffic. Do you have some stats we could have a look at?

We're also conscious of writing for a global audience and an Australian Monday is still Sunday in the US, for example.

Thanks for your comments – of course we'll see what we can do.
