Moving forward into 2014...

Hi.. 

Hopefully I am talking to a few of my friends and some of the lovely BFF Blog Friends Forever that I have been doing a picture / blog challenge with for pretty much the last 2 years... firstly at 365+1 in 2012 and last year over at Lucky Snapping in 2013 here

Jen, Anne, Lynne and myself, along with a few of you on guest host duties ran monthly prompts throughout 2013 and despite a few lulls here and there, and some super rescue jobs done mainly by Anne, we have reached the end of 2013.

With much less pre-planning than Jen gave the 2013 challenge last year I thought it might be nice to carry on keeping in touch this year and hopefully add a few new faces and stories.

My idea was that we like to keep in touch weekly at least but not always with lots of wordy thought provoking stuff.. I myself fell by the wayside at some points but found doing a 'December Daily' picture recharged my enthusiasm. 

So this is my plan:

A weekly theme for a single picture that week..e.g. colours

giving at the start of the week an option of a daily picture within the theme..e.g. blue/red / yellow etc

so it suits everyone to add a picture and words if they wish, once or more a week.

 I will aim to post an entry to be uploaded on a Monday...and if possible I shall schedule a week or two in advance so I don't get behind.  Several of you have offered to get involved with prompts so once under-way maybe you can have a think of some ideas and email them to me at.............. kathijo at hotmail dot co dot uk..... (hoping the spammers won't get me there!)

I will make it a short week to start, so let me know what you think in comments below and look out for Week 1 on Wednesday!

PS New blog was easiest way .. I will tweak colours tomorrow from my easy peasy PC!

  5. I am so happy that we can carry on - I don't mind if it's simple or more challenging, but it has become a huge part of my everyday life. I'd be glad to help but I have to come up with some ideas. Thank you KathiJo.

    1. Lynne..I think I will only do a Wednesday start tomorrow as it is easier to see Monday as the start of the week and if I get pushed for time I can usually slot something in on a Sunday for the next day! Great if we can get a good crew to start..xx

  9. I also feel the blogging has become part of my life and I would hate to stop keeping in contact with you all and seeing all your news. It will be good to see Michelle and Nicky again. I'm certainly going to carry on

  12. I miss everyone already so I will try and keep checking in with everyone :-)
    Great to see some familiar faces from 365+1 and that they like the sound of this!

    It certainly is a nice straightforward challenge Kathi, I overthought it last year. xxx

    1. I think we needed to have the thoughtful ones as it got us to know each other better.. and your View challenge was great, simple.. and i think we should have an element of a view this year..maybe each season.. thanks Jen x
