I can’t believe the official “start date” for summer will happen this month.
And yet, here we are … all in different but similar situations. It’s a crazy world we are currently in. I’m not going to delve into things, but wow is about all I can think of saying.
My hope for all of you who take part in this challenge is that you are safe and healthy. We all stand as human beings and over the years of having this challenge, I’ve come to appreciate everybody who takes part in this challenge. We’ve allowed one another to get a glimpse at our lives and shared our thoughts and other things. So as this world goes crazy, I hope you and your families are safe and that you are able to be outside a bit, breathe some fresh air and be alive. I hope, in time, we can go back to a somewhat normal — yet a normal that will hopefully eventually be improved.
So we move on with this challenge and let’s see what we can all come up with for June.
The new theme is below!
So with that in mind, let’s look at the monthly “group” challenges:
Challenge 1: Tell others about this photo blogging challenge and get some friends to come join us. Let’s see if we can get people interested in the challenge again.
Challenge 2: Make friends with your camera and see what you can come up with. Have fun!
Challenge 3 is at the end of this post (the theme!).
Before this, here’s some housekeeping items. For those who might be new to the challenge, here’s how it works.
- See the theme (first day of the month);
- Take photos throughout the month (don’t use old ones!);
- Select five photos and create a blog post;
- Come back here and link up on the final day of the month;
- Use the official hashtag — #Photoblogchal — on social media posts;
- Hopefully go visit and comment on other blogs.
That’s it. There’s no rules on equipment or anything else. Blog posts can be short and to the point, or in-depth. Interpret the themes as you see fit.
The one big rule?
This month’s theme? The Notebook. This should and could be good. Maybe you’ve started a new hobby? Or worked on an old one? Maybe you’ve found other ways of keeping busy through all of this. Show us! Please make sure your blog post publishes Tuesday, June 30. Then come back here and link up.
If you think you are going to take part in this, drop a comment below so we can see who all might be trying to tackle this challenge!
There is also a Facebook group for those who are interested.
