Overwhelmed with the Challenges?

Sharing a rose from Dustin’s garden. Still blooming in October. They make me very happy.

Have received a few PM’s (private messages) lately about all of the new challenges on the site. Some are getting overwhelmed with so many challenges. I think it is great that members are creating new challenges to try and refresh the site a little with something different.

But it doesn’t mean you are required to participate in all of them. I don’t have the time to always participate in all of them. Just pick and choose the ones that you enjoy. If you choose not to participate, I believe that is ok too.

The challenges are only meant to give you different ideas on what to post. If you already have posts in mind, you do not have to participate in the challenges. 

Just wanted to say this to some who have asked about whether or not they have to participate. The site is meant to be enjoyed. I hope we can all continue to do just that.

Looking forward to the new posts. I am trying my best to keep up with all the new members. If I miss someone’s post, give me time and I will try to comment as time allows.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. I agree with your opinion, Carol. The challenges here actually giving or helping us to have ideas to post something, if we need it only, or for some another reasons. With so many challenges, we have more choices for posting things.

    For me, right now, I feel overwhelmed by the very limited time to visit Virily… Hehehe…

    • There are so many new ones, and many new members Albert. I am sure you have noticed. That is a good thing, just trying to find enough time to visit everyone.

      Don’t be overwhelmed, visit when you can, your face is always a pleasure to see. πŸ™‚

  2. I feel bad not being able to join more of the challenges. I just do not have the time. I am so behind even commenting on the ones that comment on mine. I wish I could do even 1/4 of as many as you do. Maybe one day! You are an awesome supporter dear friend.

  3. I think many might know what I think of the challenges. lol. I LOVE THEM. Have you heard about Rex’s new one? The weather one? I am also trying to find the words one too. I am planning on posting for that one as well today. Some days, I do not participate, but some I do. I love having the options when I have that writer’s blank, which is a lot of times.
    I really liked this poll and reading every ones thoughts on the subject was useful!

  4. The challenges are good. They provide one with something They’re are not mandatory and one won’t be hated for not participating.
    I dwell on non-photo challenges since I don’t have a nice camera to capture photos.

  5. I enjoy some of the challenges just by reading some of them but also I am participating in one of them (the crazy alphabet). I do not have the time and energy lately to be active here on Virily but I try to check on it every day…

  6. I cannot keep up with all the challenges because I also try to post interesting things here so I can say when and if I can take up a certain challenge I do and will but when I cannot then I just let it go, Nothing wrong with the challenges though many are very interesting,
