Monday musings…

No problem is so formidable
that you can’t walk away from it.
Charles M. Schulz

I have a problem.
Not a big serious one, just something that bothers me.

I follow quite a few blogs and I try to read them in a timely manner. Sometimes other stuff gets in the way and I get behind with my visits to those blogs. Like now, I have over 100 posts to read. I haven’t had time to read many since June 19.

Some folks write several posts every day. How do they/you do that? I used to write one post every day and I had to push to get them done. Now I write twice a week. Some weeks it’s only once but I try for twice. I would like to add a day and maybe I will, who knows? Time will tell.

Anyway, I will read the blogs that are posted today and “walk away” from the rest. I feel bad about it, but it is what it is. I hope y’all understand.

  1. I think it’s a matter of personal preference as to how much you post or how many blogs you visit and comment on. I use to post a ton then over the years that slowed down for various reasons. I subscribe to a ton of different blogs and don’t always have the time to comment on every post either. I pick and choose depending on how much time I have if I want to comment or not.

  2. Yep, don’t feel bad, you can only do what you can only do. We’re behind lots today. If there are multiple posts from some we only read and comment on the latest one.

  3. I think some people treat their blogs like Facebook, posting “goings on” several times a day. I can’t read them all and usually just weed through and read what I’m interested in. If you have a big backlog, it’s best to let it go or it becomes a chore.

    1. I like reading about people’s lives, but you are right some are sort of like Facebook pages. I don’t know how you keep up with all the comments you get, let alone read what others post. I did let the past go and am starting anew today.🐱

  4. Don’t feel bad and don’t make reading feel like work. I don’t know how folks post more than one post a day consistently. I can’t keep up with that either. I read to enjoy and not because I feel I have to.

    Those who link up with me get priority, and I do the best I can with the others. In fact, some I bookmark to read later on.

    1. I don’t know how people can post so often. It takes me a while to write the couple of things I do each week. There was a time I posted every day, but I think my writing suffered from severe mediocracy. I think with some effort, I have improved, and I want to continue to do so.

      I do enjoy reading what folks write, but I am going to limit my responses.

      1. I have always enjoyed your posts, Patricia! IMO, quality is more important than quantity. Even poetry can become monotonous.

  5. First of all, blog reading should be to one’s liking not a job of keeping up. I only read a handful of posts, very selectively. I know it’s cost me readers but they weren’t really interested for the right reasons anyway. It’s very time consuming so one reads who inspires them.

    You head my list. It’s always a pleasure and one to look forward to. That’s how it should be, not gun to your head reading. Keeping it simple…keeping it sincere. πŸ™‚

    1. You are right. It is not a job. This blogging thing, unless you are in it to make money, is meant to be a pleasure. I guess I lost sight of that. Thanks for the reminder.

      You are always so encouraging! Thank you.

      1. I like the quote…write because you have to coupled with, follow your bliss. Haven’t thought of either in a long time. Both were inspired by you using the word pleasure. πŸ™‚

  6. It can be stressful trying to do it all. I used to post 7 days a week and now it’s five and I so enjoy my weekends off. I’m thinking about going down to three days a week. We’ll see.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Patricia. β™₯

    1. There are other things that I need or want to do. It is so easy to get too focused on one thing and lose sight of others, which are also important. You do a great job getting your posts done and keeping up with all the comments you get.

      1. Sometimes it takes great effort, but with my posts if I don’t visit those that link up then I’m not doing them any justice. πŸ™‚
