Photo Blogging Challenge (December 2016): ‘Tis the Season
As I sit here writing this, just a day and change away from flipping the camera, I can’t help but to think about where the time has went.
This year flew by and we, again, had 12 months of the Photo Blogging Challenge. Some months have been better than others in all aspects, including the photos, the themes, and the amount of participants.
I have liked seeing the challenge grow a bit and here’s hoping 2017 will allow us to grow even a bit more.
And despite this month’s challenge being pretty easy, I found I didn’t get out as much as I could have to take photos. I feel like I definitely could have done more with this theme and with photographs overall.
Alas, take it as they come, right?
So, yes, this month is traditional for me. There’s a focus on Cameron, with a couple of other things mixed in. I’ll look forward to checking out all the other people’s posts this month to see what they came up with.
Before I get to my photos — two things.
First, 2016 was a crazy year for blogging as I went with one post per day, which made life hard when it comes to visiting other blogs. I always attempted to visit all linked posts, but I know I probably didn’t get to every one. In 2017, I’m going to be much better about that, including making sure I go back at the end of the linkup (usually seven days after the original post) to visit and comment on each post. I urge each of you to do the same so we can make this a great community.
Second, the annual writing contest I run starts Monday. It runs weekdays during January and is called the 20 Days of Chill. The themes for each day have already been announced and each is open to interpretation. I’d love to see some of you join. Note: The linkups for those will be here each day of the challenge and they are only live for about two days. Information can be viewed at: http://hoohaa.com/?p=12004.
OK, with all that out of the way, let’s get to my images for the final month of 2016.
‘Tis the Season indeed!
1-3. Cameron and Christmas
OK, Cameron definitely understood Christmas this year a bit more. At least the parts with gifts and Santa. He opens things on his own, is curious and knew Santa was coming, Lots of fun!
Cameron loved this tickle Santa.
5. Another year
I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season!
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
If you took part in this month’s challenge, make sure to link up below. And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!). Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too!
Also, don’t forget to get back here Sunday, January 1 for the January theme!
NOTE: I set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
