Does Anyone Submit 15 Articles a Day?
When I first started on Persona Paper I often managed to write and submit five articles here a day. But gradually, as life got in the way, the number of pieces of writing I managed dropped. I still kept on reading and commenting as often as I could, but my writing energy has been directed elsewhere.
Today, however, I felt in a Persona Paper mood. I've been on and off here all day and, providing this gets submitted before the PP day ends, it will be my fifth submission today. This has meant I've been on here a lot more today than in the last few weeks.
I can't help wondering though. The rules say we can submit fifteen articles a day. Does anyone actually achieve that? As well as read and comment? I seem to have been at the computer a lot more than usual today, but I can't imagine being here as much as would be needed to write and submit 15 articles. Not even short, bare minimum ones. And, if anyone does manage to achieve that amazing number, 15, do they have time to read and comment as well?

I actually restrain since I would be cluttering users' activity page as also the front page. I did see erikalui doing it . She is a story writer and has countless chapters which she keeps posting.

Interesting bestwriter . Does it matter if you appear more often on these pages? Wouldn't that be to your advantage? you're a regular writer and submitter here. How many do you aim to achieve each day?

I am a new member. I have only submitted one article today. I find the traffice here is not so good.
valmnz wrote on February 21, 2015, 12:11 AM
You need to be here a while and interact a lot with others before the numbers start growing. I've only been here about six weeks but find it better than two other sites I submit to.

I don't think I could even come close to writing 15 articles in one day. I figure I am doing real good to get at least 3 on a good day

Nada. The time needed to write 15 articles and contribute numerous comment means a writer on PP will only make ten cents a day instead of one or two cents.
valmnz wrote on February 21, 2015, 12:59 AM
JeanC That's usually the case with me too, 2 or 3. I just wondered if anyone was actually intent on reaching the 15 allowed.

Wordsmith well, that's reassuring to know I'm not missing out on anything

'Familiarity breeds contempt' I cannot put a strain on my wonderful connections.
valmnz wrote on February 21, 2015, 1:05 AM
I can understand that bestwriter when I used to write regularly on my own blog, one loyal follower told me to slow down, she could only read and respond to one post a day.
bestwriter wrote on February 21, 2015, 1:27 AM
No one told me but I experienced it myself when some connection of mine used to post with gay abandon and I would get irritated.
valmnz wrote on February 21, 2015, 1:46 AM
But now I've committed to post 2 3 a day for the rest of the month. I don't expect everyone to read everything, but hope to attract a range of readers.

That'd be too hard for me. I never published more than 7 posts a day (that was while I was writing for other websites).

I've been here for more than six weeks now and as much as I wanted to write more, I just have too much in my plate. I have managed to only post 16 articles in my stay here but I plan to write more in the days to come. If only my boss would give me lesser paper works! lol

To the poster: I do submit 15 articles and since I write them a day in advance, it gets easier to spend my time interacting here. I do find time to comment here as well but only on few posts that I am interested in.

I would rather read one worthwhile article a day from a writer who knows what they are talking about than 15 meaningless 'what I had for breakfast' posts such as used to be common on Bubble Ooze.1

I know I wouldn´t be up to that many per day, and wonder at the content from anyone who could.
bestwriter wrote on February 21, 2015, 6:06 AM
Two three a day would be welcome and perhaps even more.
Kasman wrote on February 21, 2015, 6:09 AM
&Hollyhocks - I feel the same way. In this case I think less is better provided they are interesting articles.1

Even on a weekend, when all I do is sit in front of the computer writing and listing eBay, I still don't manage to post more than 3 a day here. Maybe one or two elsewhere, depending on deadlines and how active my brain is, but generally no more than a handful. 15? Not if I wanted to do ANYTHING else.

erikalui I went through a couple of your posts which I see they are more suited to an Indian audience. Persona hardly has any Indians and that is the reason perhaps you do not get many comments. How about writing a story or two also with the international audience in mind. You write well.
erikalui wrote on February 21, 2015, 6:33 AM
Yeah, I'll try writing for international audience as well. I don't watch many English shows but I have found one good show which is named "Arrow". Do you watch it?
bestwriter wrote on February 21, 2015, 7:03 AM
I don't but I am sure others must be. This site is a place to make friends, interact and in the process one gets paid not much but more than earning we get to learn, exchanging news and views.
erikalui wrote on February 21, 2015, 7:13 AM
OK. Yeah indeed this place is great to share views and interact :)1

Not me. I have not even written 15 posts for a single day.
wolfgirl569 wrote on February 21, 2015, 10:03 AM
I normally average 5 articles a day here. But I am sure it can be done.
AliCanary wrote on February 21, 2015, 2:21 PM
Just so you know, guys, you might clutter notifications, but not the front page. They have it set so that only three posts at a time will show for any given contributor.1
AliCanary wrote on February 21, 2015, 2:42 PM
I could do 15 a day, but the problem is they would each only get about 3 or 4 views! People only have patience to read and comment on so many from the same writer, especially while the community is still small. When it gets larger, that's not so much of an issue. Still, I have an idea how you might do it, even now. You have inspired me to write an article, so stay tuned!1
bestwriter wrote on February 21, 2015, 7:23 PM
I have noticed that but getting 15 posts of one user in a row sometimes in an activity page is not what one wants to see.
valmnz wrote on February 21, 2015, 7:30 PM
I've read your article as response and enjoyed it
allen0187 wrote on February 21, 2015, 11:02 PM
Haven't really tried doing fifteen articles daily. I think the most I did was five to eight articles. That was it. I'd rather read more and leave more comments than submit more posts.
FernandoSHA wrote on February 22, 2015, 3:46 AM
I used to write 5 articles a day at the other site which had become over 700 in 5 months' time but which were all for nothing as the administrators cheated us of what was rightfully due us.
nbaquero wrote on February 24, 2015, 11:55 AM
valmnz I strive for quality over quantity, so far I am still struggling to produce a good quality post LOL! seldom I post more than one article a day, but I do try to read and comment as much as time permits!
I know erikalui has posted 15 in a day, but she writes short stories that are written well in advance.
valmnz wrote on February 24, 2015, 1:32 PM
nbaquero The most I've written in a day is five, when I've been on a roll. Not sure how you judge quality here, just write.
nbaquero wrote on February 27, 2015, 12:02 PM
valmnz Thanks for the feedback, yes just need to write that in one of the advantages of the platforms like this one.
