What Makes Friendship Friday Unique?

Friendship Friday is designed so that you can participate in the way that best suits your style!

Each week, I’ll provide a Theme and Questions to ignite your creativity. You are cordially invited to share your thoughts in a themed Friendship Friday post or to answer the questions in the comments!

This Week’s Theme Is Seasonal Blogging

When it comes to blogging, have you ever noticed an ebb and flow to how frequently you blog – or to the number of visitors who stop by your blog?

That’s what this week’s questions are all about!

  • Do the seasons tend to impact your blogging habits?
  • Do you tend to blog steadfastly year round, or do you blog less at certain times?
  • Are you blogging more, less or the same than usual this summer?

Please share your thoughts with us this Friendship Friday!

Have Fun!

Have fun connecting with one another – building friendships is what this community is all about!

For more opportunities to create and connect, join us for Inspire Me Monday and Wordless Wednesday!

Great Tools, Great Service

    Woohoo I’m early this week 🙂

    Normally I try to post regularly throughout the year, but with my life taking a turn for the crazy I’ve been missing a few days a week.

    Happy pre-Friday 🙂 I’m definitely been hit by the summer blues! With the weather finally getting warmer, longer days, weekend trips – it is so easy to let my blogging responsibilities slip a tad. I’m working on getting better. Perhaps by the fall 🙂

      Know what you mean! I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers MIA… and I’ve noticed they seem to come back in the fall!
      Hope you are enjoying your summer!

    Good questions! I definitely notice a decrease in traffic over the summer months. I maintain my regular schedule at, but I took a week off at when my husband and I visited our kids and kids-in-law over the 4th of July. I do spend more time outdoors over the summer months and even sit outdoors sometimes when I blog.

    For the most part, though, I do everything pretty much the same year-round. I love blogging and social media and don’t have kids at home, so I don’t really mind. I wouldn’t recommend my schedule for everyone, though.

    If I had young children, I’d definitely be a much different type of blogger. I spend a lot less time online every time my husband and I visit our family, and I wouldn’t give up that family time for anything.

  5. My blogging depends not on the year seasons but day time. I am most productive when my town fall asleep. Do you recall the tales where children toys wake up at midnight? That is my the most fruitful time. I chat with the silence…

    I am not blogging as often as I once did, probably because I am running out of stories from my past. Each Sunday, I digest the Pastor’s sermon and post it on spiritual sundays, and usually on Hear it on Sunday and use it on Monday. My entry is about a recent shopping trip I did to town where I met a homeless woman and her dog. Thank you for hosting your lovely site.

    Thanks for hosting. I have found that with the heat turned up lately that I’m indoors more and able to blog lots more than when the weather is nicer outside.

  9. Thanks for hosting & God bless!

    It is so nice to read the comments above and know that I am in good company! I have to take small breaks now and then also! Thanks for hosting this hop and for letting me know it’s up! Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

    Great question! I have many blogging friends from the Northern Hemisphere so my seasons are the complete opposite of yours! I have noticed though, that as you are all getting sick of summer my Christmas blog is getting a few more hits…I think you are all craving winter and we are all ready for summer!

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for hosting the party. I try to blog at least once a week but its has been very hot here and I have been busy.

    Thanks for hosting. I always have fun here.

    I am just as sporadic in the summer as I am all year long! I take some breaks where I focus on my family and catch up on reading, cooking and then blog furiously for a week. This is my week of blogging furiously between Feature Follow and Bloggiesta! Hope you are joining in this weekend!

    Hi, hopping around your hop, following folks, and reading posts. Thanks for hosting a great hop again. 🙂

    I’m blogging once a week instead of twice. Just don’t have the time with other activities going on.

      Hope you are having a fabulous summer, Sharon – and glad that you are still keeping active in your blogging!
      It can be challenging – if you think spring fever is bad – summer vacation is truly among many of us! 🙂

  17. Marie says:

    I have two blogs and try to blog at least 2x pre week. Some weeks more. With technology readily available just about everywhere it’s easier to keep my blogs active. I can sit in my office at home or on the back porch of a mountain cabin or in McDonalds. Awesome world we live in.

  18. Joanne Viola says:

    I try to post daily. Sure I miss a day here or there but at I have a goal to shoot for 🙂 Thank you for hosting. It has been fun here.

  19. Mary Denman says:

    I had just been getting consistent with blogging three time a week in 2013.

    Then in May, my life turned upside down. I lost my mom unexpectedly, then 2 weeks later, lost my father-in-law, and then 2 weeks later, my daughter got married (yay!) Then I had major surgery.

    I didn’t blog for about 2 1/2 months. I’m slowly getting back to it. But I’m realistic enough to know I probably won’t be fully consistent for a while.

    Thanks so much for hosting! I found you via Wordless Wednesday. 🙂 Have a great day!

      HI Mary,

      Thanks for joining us – I’m so glad you found us through Wordless Wednesday!

      I know how cataclysmic events like loss and surgery can throw our entire world into chaos.
      During those times, you really have to focus on what’s truly important and what can take a back seat until things normalize.

      Let your blog be a source of support and strength for you when it feels right – not a source of stress.

      Look forward to getting to know you on your journey! 🙂
