Is your photographic ‘Self’ lamenting the demise of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge? Are you perhaps looking to share your creativity and photographic skills with other bloggers?” Itching to get snapping great shots again?
Friendly Friday Photo Challenge
Starting January 11th, Something to Ponder About will be hosting a new Weekly Photo Challenge, with photo and travel blogger, Snow, from the blog: The Snow Melts Somewhere.
The new Photo challenge is going to be about community and interacting with other bloggers, sharing everyday things from our world. You don’t need to be a pro to participate, either. Mobile, Point and shoot or SLR photography formats are all perfectly acceptable. Your blog doesn’t even have to be about photography, in order to participate.
Snow will kick off the challenge with the first prompt, on her blog, on Friday, January 11th, and then Something to Ponder About, a.k.a me, Amanda, will post a prompt on alternate Fridays, thereafter.
Why Fridays? Because we have decide to call the challenge: ‘Friendly Friday!’ Woo hoo!
How to Join the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge
We’ll come up with a suggested theme each Friday, and post a photo that we think fits. After that, you post photographs based on your own interpretation of the theme, and publish them in a new Blog post.
Write as little or as much, as you wish, to accompany your photos.
To make it easy for the host bloggers and others to find you, title your post “Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)”
Post a comment at the Host’s Friendly Friday blog post that includes the link to your Friendly Friday blog post, the one that you published on your blog. [ N.B. please ensure it is a link to the actual post, not just a link to your blog itself.
That’s it. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Let’s have some fun!
The challenge is open to everyone, from complete beginners to advanced writers or aspiring poets. The challenge will run from March to October, 2018. We will share tips, offer a monthly prompt and post link backs to your published Poetry posts.
Below are links and snippets of March’s wonderful Poetry entries. If I’ve missed anything, or anyone, please let me know. Pingbacks have been known to fail, so it is always helpful if you leave a comment on this post, to flag that you are joining in with the challenge.
Poetry Entries for March
Take a trip through Poetry around the World. Browsing the entries will take you to Australia, South Africa, Slovenia, Denmark, India and Pakistan to read this month’s contributions to the A and I Bilingual Poetry Challenge.
Please link back to this post, so we can find your entry.
The topic can be one of your choosing, however if you want to try a fun prompt, the suggestion for April will be posted on Something to Ponder About, tomorrow, Monday 2nd April, 2018.
Remember, you do not have to use this prompt, at all. The prompt is only there if you feel you want a topic to work from, or you find it hard to come up with an initial idea.
Ineke and I have created the above logo for the Poetry Challenge and you are very welcome to paste this onto your blog post or sidebar, so that others can also find out about the challenge, if you so wish.
