Attention One Flower Wednesday Members

One Flower Wednesday came about so unexpectedly. Never would I have imagined that saying I was going to make one flower a week, to get me back on track with my flower garden, would turn into such a Garden Party. If I was to start over again, maybe a group blog or Flickr group would have been the way to go. But, I believe we are too far into it now to make that change, as it would not be fair to those that are content with the way it is.

The Garden Party has grown to 76 members and finding the time to visit everyone is probably impossible for most people to do.   Ideally, we post on a Wednesday to make it easier for others to follow, but we don't know for sure what Wednesday members will be posting, making it hard to know which blogs to visit. To make it easier and to know exactly who has post each week, I thought a Sign In sheet would be a good idea.

After you post your One Flower Wednesday entry on your blog, you then sign in on the Sign In sheet.  From the Sign In sheet you can visit other members that have posted that week.  This reducing your time spent going in and out of blogs looking for One Flower Wednesday postings.  A new Sign In sheet will be posted each week and the previous one will become inactive.  Shall we give it a try?

Will the list of blogs that have an entry for the week be posted on your blog?

Joan said...

Great idea - how do I make a link...will by actual blog be sufficient? Have just posted. and stopped as i have no idea about the link

Narelle said...

Fantastic idea!
I started by adding each blog to my bloglines but I'm way behind with that.

Joan said...

Think I worked it out - if I have I guess it will appear on the list ...hope so...bad head at present...

Martina said...

That is a great idea. Thank you so much for doing this. It is so lovely to see all those gardens grow!

Marieke said...

I think that is a great idea! And, I'm not sure: but did you see this: http://tuinliefde.punt.nl/?home=1#556508?

Fiesta said...

fabulous idea Karen. It was hard going to all the members blogs especially since many do not post about it, so your new method will save time.

Miriam said...

I have posted my link. I hope it worked!

belinda said...

Love this idea. Thanks for creating "One Flower Wednesday"!

Theresa said...

Brilliant idea! I'll leave my link for this week and then I think it's time for a cup of tea and some garden visiting.

Sarah said...

This idea was great because I was finding it hard to visit them all. Any way to streamline is great by me. Thank you for organizing this group and anything you do is appreciated.

This is a great idea!
Maybe it is also an idea to visit each visitor's blog and leaving a comment instead of mailing a 'thank you' ? Just a thought. I have been spending so much time at my laptop this week that I had to send my DH to the take away to get fed ;-))

Karen, this is a great idea. Yesterday I tried 2-3 times and again today. I just can't figure out, what goes wrong. I will try again tonight.

Gerda Hartman said...

What a good idea. Thanks.

Saskia said...

A perfect idea Karen!
I didn't want to miss anything, so it took me a long time to visit all the blogs. That meant less time for quilting ;-)
So this is a perfect idea. I hope I did enter the right way.
Thanks for make it a little bit easy for all us quilters.

Marianne & Marie-José said...

I also tried to sign in several times, but I cannot figure out what is wrong. Until now I don`t see appear a link to my site.
Greetings
Marianne

Melissa said...

Good idea!

Sherri said...

Hi Karen...I hope it's okay...I did decide to play along and just added my link...made my first flower for this project yesterday!

Marianne & Marie-José said...

I tried to place the link, perhaps 50 times, but I cannot find out what is wrong. I use my name, the email from the blog and the url from the blog.
Greetings Marianne

Anne-Mette said...

Karen, finally :-) I was able to put place a link. But I tried at least 10 times. I am sure, it helped med, that you kept your fingers crossed ;-)).
HAve a nice weekend.
