Each Sunday, I post a new word. Use the word as a starting point for your creativity. Look through your image archives, or create a new photo, painting, drawing, story, poem etc. that you feel fits the theme.

To participate:

  • Create a new post on your blog titled “One Word Photo Challenge: (current week’s topic)”
  • Include an image or images that you feel fit the theme
  • Tag your post with “One Word Photo Challenge” so that others can find your contribution
  • Have fun!

Links to your contribution will be shared on the next week’s post.

Part III: People, Places & Things

I’m going to try mixing up some series here, for those of you who don’t like one or another. I mixed my ideas for the 3 different sections together alphabetically. So here we go, taking us through 2019. Obviously if we all get bored midway through there’s room for flexibility.

The 3 categories that the topics fall into…

People & Creatures
Places & Things
Photo Terms

Be creative! You don’t actually have to share a picture of the literal word, find your own meaning. Maybe for ‘ant’ share an image of an antelope, a piece of fruit ants got into, a story, poem, drawing, etc. about an ant. It only has to make sense to you!

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your blog.

    It appears like some of the written text on your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a issue with my internet browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

  2. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog!
    I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your
    RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand
    new updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your site.
    You have some really good posts and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like
    to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Thank you!

  4. Hey exceptional website! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of
    work? I’ve absolutely no expertise in computer programming however
    I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should
    you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic however I just had to ask. Cheers!

    1. Thank you very much. It does take a good bit of work, but I’ve kind of gotten in the swing of things at this point. I used to put a lot more pressure on myself to blog on a consistent schedule- but that just wasn’t for me and removing that stress makes blogging a lot more fun! If you have any specific questions let me know- I’ll be happy to answer :) Good luck with starting your own blog. I’d love to see it when it’s done!
