  1. You could have guest bloggers submit you a few days our weeks of pre done photos with commentary, and just have to do the daily uploads…

  2. Get a little help from your friends. It’s a great idea and will lessen any feelings of “carrying the world on your shoulders”. The Internet is one of the greatest communications devices of our time, but ironically, its’ electronic nature can be isolating. Writing and even reading are enlightening but not very socializing activities. Get others directly involved with some of the writing, editing, and continue to encourage diversity. You have helped to brighten the day of so very many motorcycle enthusiasts the world over. I know I look forward to your posts and pictures as a smiling distraction from the daily business of life. Let some of your followers return the favor. You know who they are.

  3. Hi dear friend

    I understand your dilema. Why don’t you upgrade things to:

  4. I subscribe to a lot of blogs… If you start posting less than one a day I won’t notice the change. If you start posting rubbish because you are not motivated to find “good” stuff then I will probably unsubscribe. Similarly if your guest bloggers do not keep up your standards…

    For me your safest option is to reduce your post frequency – post good stuff when you feel motivated to do it. Maybe change the blog name if that makes you feel better.

    On the flip side – I do occasionally go through my list of subscribed blogs and delete the idle ones.

    Take care,


  5. Take a break. If you can get guest bloggers, great. If not, don’t worry about it. I enjoy the site and I’m not going anywhere.

  6. Do what you need to do for yourself. You have a great blog and if it’s updated daily, weekly or whatever,I’ll still be cheking it out. Quality, not quantity.

  7. I just discovered this site a week ago. For what it’s worth, its fantastic. I think better than bikeexif.com.

    If you decide not to take a break, I’ll send in some pictures of my restored 1965 Honda S90.


    • Better than Bike EXIF? How dare you?!

      I’d say get the guest bloggers in, but vet the quality very strictly. Quality is more important than quantity.

      A question to ponder while you are on your break: what is your goal with MPOTD? Where is it going, what do you want to achieve with it?

      When you have that answer, you’ll be able to return refreshed and ready for the fray and with a greater sense of direction.

    • Yeah I’ve been doing a lot of scheduling lately. Fortunately I’ve got a LOT of backlog lately from readers and from shows. There’s still a lot of stuff that pops up that you like to squeeze in there though. Sometimes I’ll post four or five shots a day. It’ comes and goes in waves.

      I of the mind lately to just grind through it. This too shall pass…

  8. Post when you feel like it. I only check every few days anyway, not daily. Like another post says, if the content is still good, I’ll still be here. If it starts feeling forced, then I’ll stop dropping by.

    If you feel like a break, guest bloggers could be a good idea. Maybe even find someone (or more than one) who feels like doing something similar but is intimidated by it all.

    Good luck with your decision and I will look forward to more great posts (whenever they come)
