    on a daily basis

    Is there any difference in meaning?
    Stuff like that happens every day.
    Stuff like that happens on a daily basis.
    I'm not a teacher or student. I'm here just for fun.

    The second is unnecessarily wordy, but I don't think it's unnatural.

    Personal opinion.

    Re: on a daily basis

    I use "on a daily basis" quite a lot, perhaps not on a daily basis but pretty frequently.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
