It's almost here!


Okay kids, here it comes!

Starting tomorrow, on this very blog, coming together for the first time ever, the greatest collection of "365" photo bloggers the universe has ever seen!

I have no idea if any of that is true, but I often find hyperbole a good substitute for fact.



I've decided to host this little weekly clambake for purely selfish reasons --  I love to see what catches your eye during the course of your day. I think of this as one of those big mosaic pictures -- hundreds (thousands) of photos combining to make one large image. A little piece of life from one corner, a little dab from another. And I'm hoping that having a place each week to share your pictures will help to motivate you somewhere around April when you're cursing yourself (and likely me) for talking you into it.

If you'd like a little advice on what to expect from the next year, click here.



Now for the rules of the game:

I'll have the link up each Thursday, and I'll keep it open for a week. Feel free to post anytime. Come by, grab the button, imbed it in your post, and then sign on to the link list.  Other than that, there are no rules.



I find it easiest to post seven days worth of pictures at a time. Also, this is not simply for people who started taking daily pictures on January 1.

Start anytime you'd like to -- in fact, I look at 365 as less a project that starts on January 1 and ends on December 31, and more as an effort to shoot daily pictures of your lives.



Thanks to Cecily -- she of the chaos and bliss -- for creating the button for me. You're not just a good friend, you're also a great button maker! I feel you're going places.



I'm looking forward to seeing you on Thursdays!

This is great!! Its really going to make me stick to it!! Now I just really need to work on my weekday pictures. Finding the energy to pick up my camera after a long day of work is tough...but I am determined to share my link here every week...all 51 of them!! And then even the next 52!!

So I could do this and not have to start on 1/1? Hmmmm...this may just be the excuse I need to learn how to properly use my new camera. :)

it's interesting to join this but I'm not an everyday-blogger nor photographer. I knew exactly I wouldn't make it. so good luck everyone!

I'm thinking you may have just talked me into this. I've been contemplating it for several days actually. Frankly, the thought of lugging around the large camera that I'm BORROWING has been keeping me thinking though. Perhaps I just need to go buy a new one. A pocket one. And then there's that thing that it's already the 16th and I'm feeling BEHIND already...but then you said I can start anytime...hmmmm...
