For myself I would prefer to have the choice - I have a 40 hour a week job on top of growing and if I had to formulate a post for each strain I ran I would have more 8-9 journals per run. Consider that I spend roughly 30-60 minutes preparing my journal entries, selecting photos, gathering the recipes I used for my teas, composing content that is easy to read and hopefully understandable/engaging. So where last run period I had 4 Journals, totaling roughly 3 hours of work per week on average, I would have had 9 journals for roughly 5 hours of work per week. It may very well be less but I do try to provide quality posts.

Partly I use this website as a way to keep track of and store my grows for my own personal use, and I also make grow reports for breeders I am working with. In the case of writing detailed journals for the breeders, I tend to keep toward single strain journals, however with my big run, in which I am mostly running without contract and simply growing for enjoyment and to keep my local dispensaries covered, I prefer the multi strain journals because I can spend much less time with posting. If this was the case I would most likely only do my single strain journals. This is fine if the aim of the website is purely for the readers and viewers of the content, but I do think that a good deal of the usefulness of this site is its utility for me as the grower. Cream rises to the top, so if you have disorganized, non-informative multi strain journals, it wont get likes. If it is well maintained, with detailed information about each strain contained within each week that is necessary, then I dont see a problem with multi strain threads.

In response to the Multi-Strain posts drawing more likes and throwing off the monthly winners. My single strain journals all have more likes than my multi-strain journal. People with vote with their likes and it is likes that win those contests.

My opinion is of course biased because I am a utilitarian and mostly do these journals to track my own methods for future use.

Hope this view point was helpful.

@GrowCaCola, I second your post my man. I treat this like my personal grow journal in conjunction. TIME TIME TIME ( trans. Wife, Kid, Job) ALWAYS LIMITED!!:facepunch:

It gets confusing with multiple strains in one journal. Buuuut, it is a lot of work to keep up so many journals. Growers choice!

Personally I prefer multi strain journals. Primarily because I grow many strains.

Hello,for the contest I think we should close the update after harvest because it is not very fair-play for go up in the thread with photo or information that have nothing to have with the curent growdiarie just for more visibility and win some like.
No?
The separation is better for the viewers for me

As a new guy around here I personally would prefer multi strain diaries, rather than having to enter several different diaries, I run nearly 20 strains, so keeping it all going would be difficult.

I did both because I want to document what I grew together but also appreciate seeing single strain diaries. From a marketing standpoint, I believe single strain diaries have the most influence - I am much more interested in trying autos & seeds now that I have seen how many other growers are getting great results with them, and it's great to see the support and involvement of seed companies/breeders in the community.

It would be great to be able to link all the diaries together from a combined grow for easy viewing and as a record of history.

Loving this site!
