Posting in the WEEKEND EXPERIENCES COMMUNITY can be done on any day of the week of course, as long as the content is strongly focused on weekend experiences.
A few posting tips
- Content must revolve around your weekend (Saturday and Sunday):
What you did, what you're going to do or what you would like to do. Any subject is welcome provided it happened, or is going to happen on the weekend, with reference made to the weekend. Simply mentioning the word weekend isn't sufficient.
- Show personality, passion and effort:
This is my posting standard in any community to be honest. Every post you do is a showcase of what you can do and who you are and people will be attracted to posts that show effort and personality.
- Add interesting and in-focus images:
You don't need to be a photographer but using blurry, dim photos won't help catch people's eye. Think about the image you use as the main and reconsider using poor photographs in your post. Also, there's no need to load fifty images of the same thing, that's repellant.
- Write interesting text:
Your first paragraph should capture and interest the reader so make it the best you can write. Set up the rest of the post, offer a hint as to what the reader may expect as they work through the post. Think beginning, middle and conclusion when crafting the text and don't jump around too much - Write so that the reader can easily follow the flow of it. Use paragraphs and punctuation to the best of your ability also - None of us are professional writers, but make a little effort.
- Text length matters:
Posts of under 250 words won't generally get curated by me for additional votes from curation initiatives, or probably maximum votes from me. You don't need to write massive posts but short-content posting will be treated accordingly as far as votes go. Give readers a little more to work with, you might be surprised how well that goes.
- Respond to comments:
When people leave comments on your posts it's usually because they liked what they read and would like to engage with you a little. Ignoring that comment is a good way to ensure they ignore you in the future so make sure you respond. Your replies should be interesting, polite and respectful. A simple thank you is ok, but doesn't help to open up relationships so try adding a little more substance.

I've tried to keep the guidelines to a minimum as I don't want people to get too bogged down with a large set of rules. The topics and subjects welcomed are endless, provided they are strongly weekend-related of course. It's designed to be a fun place for people to showcase their weekend activities, travels, events or thoughts so feel free to do so.
