One of the major parts of my blog for the past year has been my 365 project; a photo a day, every day, for the entire year. I've found it rewarding, frustrating, fun, sad, exciting and nostalgic in equal measures. But I've managed it by bedtime every day.
Project 365 is not unique to my blog, there are people taking part all over the world. You only have to search on the hash tag on twitter to see the tweets in varying languages advertising their photographic gem, to realise that.
There were times I didn't think I'd finish it. The middle of February was difficult as I felt that I was producing similar shots or had run out of material. It didn't help that the weather was foul and so we were confined to photography indoors. Once spring started it was easier. I wish I'd had someone to hold my hand and say "come on, you can do this!"
And this is where this weekly linky comes in. Starting next Sunday (8th January), I will open a linky for the day so that anyone taking part in project 366 can link up their favourite photo taken during the course of the previous week.
Hopefully through running this linky people will find support for their photography and their posts, some comment love (trust me, not many daily photos get comments) and some inspiration. You might get to know some new blogs and friends along the way, and find the support to keep going to complete this rewarding task.
The changes in your children (or other subjects) throughout the year are immense, and it is only when you look back through the year's photos that you'll realise how much your little one, and photography, has progressed.
Pop back next Sunday 8th January and link up your favourite 366 photos from this forthcoming week. There's even a funky little badge.
Hope to see you in a week!
