The NCAA this week announced a formal program limiting how often bloggers with media credentials can update their blog while attending championship college events.

The sports governing body set blogging limits for each sport. For example, those at football games can update their blogs three times per quarter and once at halftime. For basketball, bloggers can post five times per half, once at halftime and twice per overtime period.

When did it all come to this? It used to be acceptable to post to your blog once a month, or for the over-zealous, once a week. But 12 times WHILE watching a championship college basketball game?

Nowadays, the standard seems to be at least once per day for avid (non-media) bloggers. Personally I’m still lucky if I can squeeze once a week into my schedule! So am I not typical any more? Have the standards changed? I’d love to hear your blogging habits. How often do you post, and when you do, is it just “Hey, the weather stinks today!”, or do you really have profound posts every time?
