the August Break
Not only did I send my edited manuscript back to my editor yesterday (WOOT!) but I am excited to tell you that the August Break is back! Last year I wanted to have a break from blogging (words, at least) and decided to post just photos throughout August… and over 500 people joined me. It was such fun, and the Flickr group was so lively and welcoming, that there was no way i wouldn’t be doing it again this year!

Want to join me?

The plan is: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day .Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular (wordy) blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.



I’ve created a page for our blog roll — last year there were so many new blogs to read, and lots of lovely new bloggers to connect with, so head on over to add your blog to the list (it’s not a requirement, obviously – no rules, remember? :) Plus we have the blingtastic new badges that Katrina from Pugly Pixel has created for us (thank you Katrina!).

The August Break is ON — spread the word!

Ps. If you don’t have a blog you can still share your photos in the Flickr group. We begin August 1st, but feel free to start sharing some photos in the pool now if you like — no rules! :)
