The August Break >>

Remember how I was all "blah blah not feeling motivated blah blah" the other day? Well, the flying spaghetti monster must have heard my whining, because last night I came across The August Break.
It's hosted by Susannah Conway, and has been going for 4 years running now. Basically, it's a month to post pictures only, with maybe a word or two, or maybe not. It's pretty free-form, you don't have to do it everyday, you can post one pic or many, etc. There's also a whole bunch of other optional components: a flickr group, an Instagram hashtag, photo prompts, a link up. But the part I like best is that they're all optional.

I'm going home to Minnesota to visit family for half of August already, so this seems like a great way to keep up, while also taking a break at the same time. I'll post a few regular posts here and there as well, but I think I'll mostly do a photo or two, especially while I'm traveling.

Anyone want to join me?

  1. I am planning to participate in this (at some point).

  2. I am getting on the bandwagon late, but I managed my first prompt today! We'll see what happens from this point out...I love seeing all the other posts, that's for sure!

    Welcome to the wagon! I'm terrible at keeping up with these things, so we'll see how I do. I think the best part is that you don't HAVE to do it everyday, just when you remember or feel like it. So glad you're trying it!

    yeah, get up in this! Do you do instagram?

  5. Actually no. :( Is it a smartphone thing or iPhone only? Either way, I don't have a smartphone (yet - my hubby and I were thinking around the holidays when Black Friday sales come in and such).

    you can get it on any android phone or iphone, as long as it's new-er (anything that's come out in the last 2 years should be up to date enough). it's such a fun way to share photos! if you get a new phone this fall, let me know!
