And so we’ve reached December.
As I get older, I wonder if the years sometimes go on speed-dial. You blink and the summer is here. Then Christmas. Then the spring. Then the fall. All in different years. Alas, we do what we do, right?
So, off we go with another month in this little challenge. And if you have been with us for any amount of time, you probably have a good idea of this month’s overall theme. While the “theme” itself will be a change of a name, it’s all involving this time of year.
It’s the time of the year to hopefully spread some cheer, be happy and get into the holiday spirit! I know I’ve gotten into the holiday spirit myself, and am looking forward to the month ahead.
Here’s wishing everybody an amazing holiday season. I wish you and yours the best!
Before we get to this month’s theme, let’s do our 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? Jingle All the Way? This is a pretty broad stroke, so hopefully you can have fun with it and find some great images!! Please make sure your blog post publishes Tuesday, December 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.
