Most of the themes for the PBC were decided at the beginning of the year. You know, when times were a bit better.
These themes have become a bit harder with everything going on, but I guess that’s why they call it a challenge. Some people might have different levels of difficulty, based on where you are in the world.
I’ll have a blog post coming out in the next day or so discussing this a bit more in-depth, but the longer this global pandemic goes on, the harder it gets to do some things. Maybe it’s mental or whatever, but times aren’t easy to get that creative. My juices don’t get flowing and I find myself putting things like this off. I need to start pushing myself again and I’d really like to do it through photography. So, hopefully I can bust out of this.
So we’ve reached August. The eighth month of the year and we continue into the home stretch of this not-friendly year. Thanks for sticking with us.
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? Sports. 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 Monday, August 31. 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.
