Okay, why not? I’m in. Kim Douillard from our National Writing Project’s iAnthology, posted a photo challenge for the month of December and well, how could I not join in. For years that’s what I did every day- took a photo and posted it on my blog and then added some writing. Strange, I stopped when the blog appearance was transformed by its creator. Of course I didn’t stop blogging but I that jar, took me away from my own personal challenge.
Here’s the prompts she offers for December and my start:
Yes, great deal but I opted for a diet coke and no burger, just a salad with chicken. Of course, I posted my pics on Twitter and Facebook and I’m in a new group #sdawpphotovoices
3. gift This is today’s challenge.
Have fun, be creative, explore the limits of your photography…after all, 2013 is nearly over! You can post every day, once a week…or sporadically throughout the month, whatever works in your life. Be sure to share…and to tag your photos so we can all find them!
I hope you’ll join me as your photos help you express your experiences of the season! Be sure to post a photo each day with the hashtag #sdawpphotovoices to Twitter, Instagram, Flicker, Google+ and/or Facebook (the more the merrier!), so that we can all enjoy the posts. If you are feeling daring, you might compose a blog post about a photo…about a week’s worth of photos…create a photo essay…the possibilities are endless! Be sure to link back here to create a pingback by linking to this url…or post your blog address in the comments (or create your entire response in the comment section). It’s fun to see what others do!
And if this new challenge isn’t enough, I found Kevin Hodgson engaged in a new blogging/comment challenge, not that Slicers need that, but why not?
#nerdlution: 50 Comments/50 Blogs/50 Days
My goal is to make a daily comment on a different blog, so that by January 20 (if I succeed), I will have left a trail of 50 comments throughout the blogosphere. This goal comes from the realization that I have gotten a bit lazy with commenting on what I am reading, and not taking full advantage of the read/write/comment nature of the blogs that I read. I am still thinking of how best to track my comments and my path. I am beginning to use Storify to curate my activity.
And of course Kevin shared an inspirational poem:
So I guess I’m in there too. New communities to share with, but there’s nothing like beginning a Tuesday with Slicers. Time to post this and get to reading and commenting with friends.
