If you bolt it and it is braced along the fence line you may be ok. It may not hold up to lateral force such as the wind as well as a buried post. If it don't work then bury the next one. I have a gate post on my patio that is bolted down and then the fence ties into the house 10' away. It runs parallel to our prevailing winds and has held up better than the part that catches all the wind.
