Another month and … still restrictions!
Some places are in a harsher situation than others. It’s not so bad in my area of New York. Sure, we have to wear a mask when in stores an all. But I go to work (in the actual office) a few times a week and work from home the others. I still go walking. I can go for a drive. And people, for the most part, are going along with things. I am pretty sure we’ll start easing on things soon enough.
Still, the world is trying to see where we will go. Some leaders are making better decisions than others. But as a people, hopefully we can get over this. No matter where you are in your thoughts, I implore you all to think about others — not just yourself. I wear a mask in stores and such not for me, but for others. I respect other people’s space. I walk around others to give space. You’ll find things are better if you just give that space.
But even with everything going on, we continue with the Photo Blogging Challenge! I hope you’ll join us this month, and maybe even try and convince another blogger or two to join us! I’ll be making the rounds for this past month soon … make sure you go back to the linkup to see if there was any you missed!
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? Keeping busy. 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 Sunday, May 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.
