It's been a daily habit of mine for 5+ years (August will make 6 years straight).  And I don't buy into the "you have to sacrifice quality for the sake of quantity" argument.  There are ample topics out there, and some of it is repeated topics (e.g. monthly market reports and such) that get updated.  In general, it's about 30 minutes a day to draft a post, and considering the return I get with leads for our business, it's one of the best time investments I make each day.

This is a classic QUANTITY vs. QUALITY debate. If you slightly rephrase the question as "Is it possible to write 365 Quality Blog Posts per year?" then my answer is no.... at least not if you plan on accomplishing anything else during the day. If all you do is write blog posts then it is possible to write that many but I still question on if the quality would be there.

I do think it is possible if that's what you want to do. I love coming to AR and blogging, reading post, etc. However, I do get busy and since it isn't my first priority, I only post a couple days per week. That's one reason I'm thankful for re-blogging. Sometimes I find great blogs I missed when I wasn't able to get on AR.

Hey, Michael !
I there are no doubts that it is theoretically possible to write 1 post each day. The question is if it's worth to spend a short period of time to write generic blog posts or it's best too spend a week or something to make something that is unique and offers a USP that no other type of content can actually provide.
First, make difference between quality and value. A post with a very poor quality may have a great value for the reader. That is a perfect opportunity to get a lot of traffic with a generic post on at topic with high interest which is repeated again and again because its evergreen.
When you look for quality it's a lot harder but this offers different benefits. Creating a blog post that offers unique information that cannot be found anywhere on the web which has been gathered from somewhere else through other forms of research etc. can make a lot of people to actually link to you as a the initial source of the subject. That will brind you traffic, backlinks (a lot of link juice) and will help you get some brand identity ? Do you agree with me ?

I was going to recommend asking Liz and Bill Spear but clearly there's no need.

 

This can easily be done with the "auto-schedule" feature where you can knock out a few week's worth of blogs on a slow day.  I haven't done it & don't have the desire to, but could certainly see it being possible.
