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!

Hi guys, I think the multiple diaries would make the home cleaner and more organized, but it is also true that single give more information, then both work well, everyone choose what he prefers :ok_hand:. Peace.

I like the idea of separate diaries for each strain

@248dalton, I have to agree. Multiple strain grows are great but I do prefer a single thread per strain:pray:

I like the idea of single strain diaries... You know what youre looking at without doubt. But id like to see an option to showcase strains that are from breeders who arent on your list. Anything you might add in the future?
