FOTD Tulips from Longwood Gardens

Cee Neuner posts a Flower of the Day Challenge. I have enough flower pictures in my archives to post every day for about three years, but I’ve never posted every day for an extended period of time, and seldom more than once a day. Since I have other projects in the works, I’m in a quandary.

 FOTD tulips from Longwood Gardens

April is coming up and Becky B’s Bright Squares are coming up in two days.

So here’s my question, how do you feel about posting more than one post per day?

  1. Beautiful tulips, Marsha. I try to post at least once a day but occasionally post twice and sometimes miss a day completely. I think the most important thing is to keep the fun in blogging. Decide what is comfortable for you, post consistently, and enjoy the interaction.

  2. Longwood Gardens is a great place to visit – nice to see it featured.

    I sometimes find it hard to keep up with bloggers who post just once a day; posting more than once makes it even more difficult…

  3. Irene’s right! Do what works for you. Posting daily runs me ragged, especially on a challenge as popular as Becky’s. I feel I have to visit everyone and there’s no time left for just living. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Nice tulips!

  4. I think anyone who does more than 1 post a day is amazing – as a reader though i find it is a challenge to read every post of every blogger i follow even when they only post every few days, so it does mean I sometimes I can miss out on multiple posts by someone. Makes me sad when I can’t keep up, but I have to be realistic about what I can read

    • That’s true for me too. I have set a goal to read all the posts by all the people who participated in the photo challenges that I participated in with my quote challenge. I got through 26 today so far. I like what it does for the community, but, like you say, it’s hard to keep up. I was thinking of doing your post every day for April, but it sounds like you advise against that. πŸ™‚

  5. I have never posted that often. Twice a week is usually enough for me. I often unfollow bloggers who post more often than that as it clogs up my inbox and I don’t have time to read that many posts by one person.

      • That’s just me, Marsha. Sometimes I unfollow. Sometimes I have a quick look and read the posts that interest me. Other times I just ignore them until something pops out. You, I’d never unfollow, but I may not read all your posts. I’ll be selective. I hope you don’t mind. πŸ™‚

        • I don’t mind. I can’t read all of everyone’s posts. You and I have a relationship that transcends daily commenting. Once you speak on the phone and email , and in some cases, our blogging friends move into a higher level. which doesn’t preclude daily comments, but doesn’t depend on them to keep the friendship going. However, if a close friend like you are unfollowed me, I would worry that I had done something terribly wrong when in fact it might be a glitch.

  6. I don’t think I would ever post more than once a day as I tend towards posts with a fair amount of content, not just a single photo with a caption. So I’ve deliberately not engaged with FOTD other than admiring some of the photos posted by bloggers I follow. I sometimes feel my own average of one most days is too much so I’m reassured that most of the people commenting here seem to aim for that. I have a feeling when the world reopens a bit and I can do more (visit galleries / eat out / travel) my own blogging rate will drop, maybe to only a few each week. Let’s see!

    • You do have a lot of interesting and meaningful content. Mine can be depending on what I’m trying to accomplish with the post. I haven’t done many quick posts, but I’m planning to participate in Becky B’s squares for the first time in April (as a regular thing) I interviewed her, and I like to support the ones I interview. It is easier for me than with the writing challenges, which are not my comfortable style. I’m more of a journalist, teacher, and poet. Short stories take more time. πŸ™‚

  7. I like to post every day. Sometimes 2 or 3 posts per day. They are mostly shorts, but of course I have my long posts on Friday for Bird Weekly and the roundup. Both of those take me a couple hours or more to complete. My stats go up exponentially when I post more than one per day. It is because I have so many interests that I can’t hone in on one thing. If I ever have to get a job again away from home, my blogging will go down to a few a week again. I won’t be happy with that. πŸ™‚

  8. Beautiful tulips Marsha!
    I post 3 times a week and that is the most I can keep up with. I will only like 1 or 2 posts for someone who posts all of the time with a time crunch. Too much to keep up!

    • I agree, it’s too much for me. I’m trying to get through all the participants of all the photo challenges I linked to in my post today. I think I visited 41 and have 56 to go. That was two day’s worth. That’s a lot to bite off, but I couldn’t do it if I posted every day. So I hear you. Even so, I will visit soon because I think of you often and miss it when I don’t! πŸ™‚ Have a lovely rest of the week. πŸ™‚
