Does it make sense to "ladder" option expirations as you would bond maturities?

Thanks,

Maybe to provide steady income so long as they all expire unexecuted.

But keep in mind all of them could execute at once if the market makes a major move. That is far different from laddered maturity bonds which serve to stabilize income over an extended period.

Thanks for the reply. It seems like not enough of them make it to expiration to make it worth worrying about.
