    1. Agreed – I’m not entirely sure how blogs get selected for props by the WordPress folks. I’ve seen some not-so-great blogs get good PR on Freshly Pressed… while what I consider to be other really good blogs not get noticed…. I”m trying to not get frustrated (or irritated), but some days it is a little hard. I DO wish ALL bloggers good PR and lots of readers; I just wish that the love was shared more widely…Especially with bloggers who have been posting daily for the past 6 months (if not longer…).

    1. Hi Lavagal – we couldn’t get everyone profiled in this one post. So let me sing your praises here – any particular song you’d like me to sing to you?

  1. It’s going pretty well. There were two posts that I thought I had posted until I discovered them pending the next morning. So even though my post calender widget shows two gaps <> I’ve successfully posted every day. It’s been a challenge, but I’m really enjoying it.

    the female blogger, Elizabeth Obih-Frank, indeed she daily gives very good examples and inspirations how to write articles!

    1. TY Frizztext & Erica & WP! I am humbled by this mention … and it’s a wonderful way to wrap up the month of June. It has been incredibly challenging doing the daily post, and I am grateful for the friends I’ve made and the lessons I’ve learned. My advice to others here and elsewhere is to stay focused on your blog work, make friends with other bloggers, and keep at it… Your day will certainly come! 🙂
      Thanks again for the mention!
      Elizabeth

  4. Thanks to all of you at wWordPress for your encouragement! I’ve enjoyed blogging all year! It’s been quite a challenge and I have loved the daily blog challenge!

    Blessings!

  5. I’m doing post a week and haven’t missed a week yet, most weeks I manage a couple of posts or sometimes more. I rarely use the prompts as it’s a book blog so the prompts rarely relate to what I write about

  6. I’ve loved being a very little part of the dailypost; it’s one of the things that I’ve most enjoyed about being involved with WordPress. I made some great connections with people I wouldn’t have met otherwise, and although I’ve only done a few of the posts I’ve found the people here a great source of encouragement.

  7. Thanks for the recognition and I commend everyone who has taken part! Although there are days I feel like I should be doing something more productive (looking for a job, applying to grad school, etc.), the sense of community and acceptance are why I’m still here and still loving it!

  8. Ever since I discovered Daily Post, I’ll admit I just pick a topic here and there if I’m in the mood. I haven’t been very good at doing it every day because I have no clue what to say on every topic that comes through. hehe.

  9. Thanks so much for noticing. It has been challenging at times to keep up but it’s also stretched my blogging into places I’d never go at 3 or four a week, Congrats to everyone who’s kept up … it is a BIG DEAL!

  10. I only started last week (on my birthday) after not blogging forever. Thank goodness there’s the scheduling feature so I can write several posts in one night and schedule them for different days. I wouldn’t be able to keep up otherwise. :-p

  11. Gotta say that I’m proud of myself for keeping an almost weekly schedule (darn that one stretch). I’m amazed at you guys who go daily. My articles always end up running long, even when I cut them into parts. Congrats and keep going.

  12. Out of curiosity, what made those 10 stand out over any of the hundreds of thousands of bloggers that have been blogging every day as well?

    1. Baby Bird,
      Yes I have to admit that I was wondering that too 🙂

      I do follow Tilly Bud’s blog already and the only answer I can come up with is that I think these people post more than once per day.

      I couldn’t do that ‘cos I put a decent amount of research into my posts and some of my posts are longer because of it. I have a husband, kids, a job to juggle too.

      My posts, even the photographic ones still take organising and time to post, so once a day is more than enough for me.

      I don’t think of it as any competition, I write for “me” and if anyone wants to come along for the ride then fine, if not, I;d still write LOL.

  13. Hey, I don’t care if I ever make the top ten of anything, but I really got a kick out of seeing my Tilly Bud up there on the list! Since mine is all poetry, it’s not to everyone’s taste; others focus on photos; and then, there are those free-form ranters and storytellers. It’s all great, and I thank God every day for WordPress, because it creates community in a world where The Powers That Be are doing their best to make us feel poor, scared, and stupid.

    Peace to all! Amy Barlow Liberatore

  14. Phew! I looked in on your top ten and found some great stuff, but what variety! From the sublime to the (funny) ridiculous. I post every day, but can’t be doing with those prompts! Tillybud and Doodlemum came out top in my poll.

  15. Mirth and Motivation is one of my favorite blogs! Elizabeth is an amazingly talented woman who knows how to inspire and provoke deep thought every single day! She not only blogs every day in a most substantial way, she also gets around to everyone else’s blog to read and comment! Truly, a phenomenal blogger and wonderful person!

  17. Its been a fantastic learning experience for me and I haven’t missed a day – although being in different time zones has put me past the midnight hour on a couple of occasions! Its been great getting to know some of the fantastic bloggers on here too!

  18. Wow, this is great that I’ve had a feature and I’m really chuffed. My motivation is purely for me and to further myself as an artist. It’s been so inspirational to meet so many other creatives out in the blogosphere.
    I do see it as a journey and try not to get bogged down by ratings, just look to produce a good piece everyday that leaves me happy.
    Using WordPress has brought me back out of my shell, I’m using a medium I never thought I’d use.
    Keep having fun and here’s to more great art and writing from everyone. 🙂

  19. I’ve been posting once a week since January and I’ve totally loved it! To be sure I’d be able to commit to it I chose a topic I love that is books, and then I talk about and specific title or chose a theme and then I do so research about a books that are related to it. I also like t6 write about the experiences I’ve had with a story. My favorite posts of my own so far are the one about me trying to get to Baker St. to visit the Sherlock Holmes museum, the one about the Phantom of the opera book, and the one about magic carpets in literature.
