Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in Photosand

Several years ago, when I launched this blog, attracting viewers was part of my goal. It took time and effort, but I met some wonderful readers and fellow bloggers. Like friendship, you need to put your best face forward to keep the relationship going. I think I am not alone among my many blogger friends…..I have fallen down on the job! My posts are fewer and fewer and my views are less and less. It’s my own fault.

Here is the thing…real life is more interesting than the solitary hours spent at the computer or on the device! I see this happening to other bloggers as well. I will contemplate what this means for the future of Jayne on Weed Street.

I recently entered a photo contest, and sent a favorite picture of my girls (not this one)to The Enchanted Home. I’ve read this blog for a long time. I enjoyed it more before she became very commercial; she uses the blog to sell decorative items for her “store.” I still surf the site, especially for something as fun as this photo contest. My pups got some votes, but a puppy of the same breed won! If you’re going to lose, it is not too bad to lose to another Cavalier King Charles spaniel! this is how they were presented in the contest…

So I will be spending the summer deciding If I will abandon this platform…..pretty sure I will be alone in missing it. Do I need to become more commercial? Have photo contest s? Give away prizes? Hmmmm. But for my few followers, hello! And here are some photos of what is keeping me from the grind of making new posts for you and WordPress! The crepe myrtles are blooming, and my neighborhood keeps drawing me out of my study….

    Jayne,
    I have dropped the ball on my blog site as well. I don’t post as often as I once did. I recently restarted, but after a month kind of slowed again. I even find that time to post on Instagram is challenging.
    Life is fun and far more interesting than posting but I do love the connection when posting.
    xo,
    Karen

    Wow that’s a tough call. I’ve never imagined that my blog would ever be a thing beyond a personal record but it has been a great way to connect with people across the world. I’d hate to see you hang up your blogging pen but you do seem to have found a whole new world down south and seem far busier. You can’t just stay in every single room you walk in to, sometimes the next room is worth a visit.

    Hello Jayne, yep – I’m one of those too, I recently had a two month break but have started writing again as there have been some changes in the garden I wanted to talk about. I have a definite theme and objective for my blog, which is documenting a “greenfield” garden of just grass and turning it into a beautiful garden. It’s taken many years and will take a few more, but once the last border is made, planted and established, that’s probably around the time my own blog will stop as I will have “done the job and so I will use the time to enjoy my creation instead.
