Wow – A Short One!

Short post today. What it amounts to is that I was reading through JMMcDowell’s Post for “How Do You Follow Them? Part 2” and she was talking about how grateful people are when you post three or less times per week.

I understand the statement, the answer, and the reason, but it prompted me to tell you why I post every day. There are several reasons, really.

First, I am disabled and don’t work, so I have time to do this.

Second, I know myself enough to know that, if I don’t post each day, it will die out and I will stop it altogether. I have done this on so many things through my life, I didn’t want to chance it happening here.

Third, I thought people would get to know me a bit better.

Fourth, it has made me become more versatile. By writing every day, I have to change what I post about and the type of post I do.

Finally, I simply love doing it. That’s the most important reason to me. I love doing it and I love hearing from all of you.

I don’t get upset or whatever if you don’t “like” my post or if you don’t comment. I don’t get upset if you can’t read my posts every day or can’t read every post. I may begin to worry if I stop seeing you post and/or comment after a while if you always have before. That’s the friend issue I have: if we chat back and forth several times, I consider you my virtual friend. We haven’t met, but I think about you.

Anyway, I said short, so I will stop with this last thought:

How do you feel about my daily posts?

Is it okay that I do them each day?

Do you like the variety?

What type of posts do you like best?

Love to hear from you.

    Everyone should choose the blogging schedule that fits his or her desire, schedule, and purpose. I think what many of my readers and I were saying is that for those of us who work full-time and have other commitments, it’s difficult to keep up with daily bloggers. And we feel bad about that because we do enjoy the discussions in the comment sections.

    So when we do follow, we usually can’t comment as often as we can with those bloggers with a less frequent schedule. But that’s the balance we have to strike for reading. And I’m sure you and other daily bloggers understand that and don’t feel like we’re “short-changing you.” (Even if we as readers feel as if we might be doing just that. 😉 )

      I certainly don’t. I am usually just so happy you managed to read my post at all and then to comment! Wow! Makes me feel special. I think it is wonderful that you all with full-time jobs, husbands/wives, families, and just general life stuff take the time out to read other people’s blogs. That you comment is fantastic, and I appreciate each and every comment.

    I post everyday as well, at least on one of my blogs. I have several. I need to write! 🙂

    I think it is awesome that you post everyday. Anyone who can and wants to, should. I enjoy all types of posts. I read them when I have the time and comment when able. I usually take one day out of the week and catch up on all of the blogs I read. It doesn’t matter if they are long or short it has more to do with the person and what they are sharing.

    I have found that it helps my issues with anxiety and helps stop me from falling into negative thinking the more often I write. It has also helped me get to know myself in turn connecting to my own emotions and being able to feel more connected to others.

    I think The Wanderlust Gene made some great points! I will agree with them and buckwheatsrisk about you doing what works for you, as well.

    Type on! 🙂

      That sounds so great! I agree with all of you. I think I just needed to hear some others say that.
      I intend to keep writing every day as long as I am able. With such an open and flexible schedule, I can.
      Thanks for all you said. Keep it up!

    The most important thing about blogging – for me – is that it’s all about me. What I enjoy, what I want to get out of it. The unexpected – and tremendous – boost one gets from conversations with people around the world must – despite the pleasure it affords – come secondary to why I post. I’ve fallen victim to too much chatting and reading of others’ posts, and not enough attention to my own – a balance must be reached! Speaking of discipline – a post a day seems to be a sure fire way to develop/nurture many admirable qualities, not least of which must be to write/post consistently, even into the silent void. 🙂

    i post everyday as well. like you if i didn’t it could die out. for me personally i prefer when people do short posts because i read and keep up with so many blogs, and i can’t take in long ones as well with ptsd. do what works for you. 🙂


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
