As bloggers are so full of life. We love sharing our lives and knowledge with others. But we all know there are secrets. To an outsider our lives might look perfect. We might look super dedicated and focused on the subject we write about.
Writing niche blogs is great but sometimes it misrepresents us. Some people may be lead to believe that the thing we write about is the biggest part of our lives or that our lives are seemingly perfect. This is a chance for your readers to get to know you as a person and blogger. It will give your readers a taste of the rest of your life that doesn't generally make it to your blog. Have you ever been dying to write about something that you didn't feel fit with your blog?
This is the time to post photos of plays you go to see, times you hang out with your friends, the mess in your kitchen after you create the world's most perfect souffle. Let us see the rest of your life behind the blog.
Are you a champion athlete, a musician, a stamp collector? Let us see in photos.
What do we do?
All you have to do is take a photo of something you did or experienced each day of the week and post your photos each Friday. You can include captions about what was happening when the photo was taken or a short statement about your day.
Why should we do this?
As bloggers, photographs are a huge component to telling a story. Being forced to take one photo everyday also helps you get better at telling stories through pictures. It really makes you think about if you are telling the story in the best way you can. Plus, it will be great fun getting to see the secret background lives of our blogging friends. :)
Who can participate?
Anyone with a place to post their photos and comments. Obviously if you have a blog, use your blog. But anywhere where everyone else participating can see your images.
Do I need a fancy camera?
Absolutely not. The camera attached to your phone is probably the best one to use to catch those daily unexpected moments that make up your life. You can also keep a camera with you for the next few weeks if you prefer. As long as your photo captures the moment and you can post the photo, it's perfect.
