As we head into the last holiday weekend of 2011, I just wanted you to know that I'll be spending some much needed time with my family over the next couple days. Come Monday, I'll be back to regular posting and providing more information and details for project participants.
All you need to do for the next few days is get your camera of choice clicking! Just start taking your photos and we'll talk about what to do with them next week.
Our group is a flexible and open one. You have free reign to break any "rules" and customize your project as you see fit for you. I've set up some suggested challenges but that doesn't mean you have to pigeon hole yourself into just one.
Last year I set out to take a single photo a week and very quickly decided that didn't work for me. I changed it to 3 photos a week because that is what best helped me document my family. You can read about what went into that decision here.
Think about what works for you, feel free to experiment, feel free to change your mind a month or two in! We're here to play and encourage one another not to set strict rules that no one can stick to. Spend the next couple days thinking about what your goal is for 2012. That will help guide your decisions and ensure you have a project you are proud of next December.
I am so excited about the turnout we're getting for this project. It is going to be so fun getting to know you a bit better in the new year. I know that you will inspire me just as much as I hope to inspire you. Till then, have a very Happy New Year's Eve!
