I hate Statistics.

Even the word alone annoys me. Statistics. Too many t’s. A stutterer’s nightmare. My husband is a numbers and math freakshow. Seriously…it’s ridiculous.

I, on the other hand, not so much.

At the Social Media Breakfast there was a question asked about how many times a day to post on facebook, to tweet, etc. I have seen a TON of infographics on this in the past while – best hours of the day to post, best days of the week to post, how many tweets a day and what time of day gets you more engagement.

Really? Are we really going to go down that route?

Not this chica. I’ll post when it hits me. Not before, not after. I’ll skip a day, two days, a week (ok, that was a bit far) if I have nothing to post. I will never post just to be in the timeline. Nor will I blog if I have nothing to say.

Sad news for some of you to hear, but I almost always have either random thoughts busting out of my brain, or thoughts on something in life that I have an overwhelming desire to share with the world wide web.

So there you have it. I don’t give a rat’s ass when you post or how often. Just entertain, inspire, intrigue, teach me and I’m hooked.

    I think statistics have their place, but for sure it’s better to be genuine particularly on platforms like Twitter and Facebook. I’ve unfriended/unfollowed only a few people but almost all because of they auto-post generic blurbs at “peak” times. Not cool to jam up social media feeds with “10 ways to lose 10 pounds in 10 days”…unless it actually works! Lol ; )

    But I love statistics!!

    I hear what you’re saying though. The unnecessary posting is annoying and will probably have the opposite effect. Quality over quantity.
