PostSubject: Photo of the Day Challenge   Thu Jan 01, 2009 12:56 am

Last year I was a part of the 365 Photo of the Day challenge. I made it through and have a lot of fun photos to remind me of the year. Anyone interested in taking the challenge for 2009 with me? If so, meet me here every day and post a photo. You can also do it on your blog or flickr. Just provide a link to where your photo is.

If you are interested in doing it by word prompt, I will post a word prompt list every Sunday for the following week. All you have to do is take a photo of your interpretation of the word. This is not a necessity to participate. If you wish, ignore the prompts and just take a photo of what you wish. I'm all about ease and fitting the challenge into your life with ease.

The word for:

January 1 will be NEW
January 2 will be CHALLENGE
January 3 will be COLD
January 4 will be ME

Hope you play along. it should be fun!

I did not do this last year, but I know many people that did. I liked looking at their pics and how they documented their year. flower

Judi, I think I am going to continue my blog and post a link here. I may try to post them directly into the message here. Let me play around a bit and I will get you a better answer.

In regard to post frequency, I say do it however it fits into your life. Make it easy for you. I will probably stick to doing it daily. However, weekly would be less time consuming.

It is fun to go back through last year's photos and see what was oging on. It has helped me remember more of what I did. The small things I normally would have forgotten.

I only kept up on this for the first few months, but it was really fun to see. I put my pictures into a calendar format and really loved seeing a snapshot of the whole month.

I'll be joining in and hope to keep on track this year.

Denise, if you want help coming up with word prompts, just give a shout. You are so good for being organized and a few steps ahead of us! Smile

Judi, let's see if these posting directions will work for you. This is for posting directly into this thread, if not using Flickr or Photobucket. it is a little tricky.

1. Upload photos from your camera to your computer as you would normally do.
2. Sign on to the BASB message board.
3. Go to the Photo of the Day Thread.
4. Click on Post Reply Button as you would normally do to leave a message.
5. Above the empty message area, is a menu with multiple option buttons. Find the Host An Image button. The icon looks like a photo with floppy disk. Click on it.
6. In the Upload Your Image box that appears, make sure file is chosen and click on Browse.
7. In Choose File menu that appears, find your photo and double click on it.
8. That box should have automatically closed and you will be back at the Upload Your Image box. Resize your photo to 320 px width.
9. Click Host It button and wait for it to upload.
10. A list will appear with copy buttons. You want to choose Image. Click on the copy button listed after Image.
11. Internet Explorer may ask if you want to allow access, click Allow Access.
12. Now the box will still be there, but you will need to the message area's option buttons. This time click on the Image icon, which is to the right of the Host an Image button.
13. A small box will appear. Click in the box, so your cursor appears in box.
14. Right click mouse and choose paste.
15. Click OK.
16. Now you are going to post your message as normal. Click send, which is below your message box.

I can use any suggestions for word prompts. I just pulled them out of my head last night, but I am sure that will get limiting. So thank you!

Will there be a new thread for each day of photos? Or will we just keep building on the same one?

I will start a list of word prompts. Would you want me to send my list to you? Or do you want me to post them at a future date? I just don't want you to feel like we're putting this all on you, so I'm willing to help in whatever way I can.

I was thinking it might be best to do a new thread for each day. That way if we overload the memory allotment we can go back and delete older posts. Also, will keep it clean and organized. What do you think?
