I can’t believe this weekend is Labor Day in the states. That signifies, for the most part, the end of the summer.
And it was a heck of a summer. I got to get out and see a lot of things (including baseball) this year and I am pretty happy with what I had the chance to do. How was the summer for all of you?
I peeked around quickly at some posts from August and it looks like quite a variety I’ll look forward to looking and commenting more in-depth on each post, too.
Anyway, so now we enter the final third of 2016 as September is upon us. There is so much we can do and can see, but what should we do for a theme? Thankfully, I’ve spent the past few weeks coming up with a ton of new themes and plotting them out so I can basically have themes already figured many months in advance.
But, with this month, I wanted to give people the chance to show a little more about themselves … well, at least their surroundings.
So how about that new theme? First, there’s always some housekeeping things:
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;
- 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? Your Town/City. Hopefully we get to see some cool things from your own eye about where you live! Interpret how you see fit and enjoy it! If you know others who might enjoy this challenge, pass it along. Please make sure your blog post publishes Friday, September 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.
