Round Robin Challenge: "ABCs of Autumn" (for 10/4/06)

Okay, Robins, we have a really creative and challenging topic for our Round Robin Challenge for Wednesday, October 4th. It comes to us courtesy of T.J., author of Photo Inclusions: Every Picture Tells a Story. I'll let her introduce it:

Topic for October ...oh that can only be one thing.

=ABC's of Autumn=

Using the first letters of your first and last name.

Lori - Leaves
Stevens - Streets

Lots of fun I hope...


Neat, huh? So I'm thinking about the possibilities for KB in autumn in Arizona. Kissing Bugs? Killer Birds? Kibbles & Bits? Well, I'm sure I'll come up with something. For now, by way of example, here's a Kinetic Birdie!

How about you? What is there about fall that starts with your initials? Figure it out, take your pictures, and get ready to post them on Wednesday, October 4th. Please DON'T post your entry before that date, and please DO RSVP before the 4th so we can get you on the Linking List. Your RSVP should be a comment to this entry, and it should look something like this:

I'm in!


Jace's Journal

Got it? Good! Dive into some autumnal wordplay, leave your RSVP, and go be photographers! We look forward to seeing your entries on Wednesday, October 4th.

Any questions? Feel free to email us:

Round Robin Challenge: "Dream Homes"

Hello Robins :) This challenge is now closed, thanks for playing!

We had an awesome turnout for our previous challenge, but it's time to focus on a new one, and our next one comes to us by way of our friend Gem, author of the journal, " Journally Yours." Gem has chosen "Dream Homes," as the theme for our next challenge, which will be played on Wednesday, September 20th. Gem's idea is for you to take a picture of the exterior of what you consider to be your "Dream Home," and then tell us why you consider it as such. Before you sign up for the challenge however, let me remind you of the basics for playing along...

1. DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY EARLY! Please remember, your entries should be posted on the day of the challenge, or for up to one week after the challenge date. If for some reason you must post early, drop an email to Karen, Steven or myself and we will make special arrangements for you. :)

2. Please try to give us your RSVP by the day before the challenge is played. In this case it will be, Tuesday, September 19th. As you know, we enter a Linking List for you to copy and paste into your journals on the day of the challenge. We usually place the list in the challenge entry just after midnight the day of the challenge, as a courtesy to the Robins, and to those who might come by for the first time. So PLEASE try to sign up the day before the challenge is played. :)

Here is an example of how you should sign up for a challenge...

3. Placing the whole Linking List into your entry is optional, but we do ask that you at least link back to the Round Robin blog, so that folks can find the links to the other participants.On the day of the challenge, you can come back and leave a direct link to the specific entry that you post, and we will update the Linking List to reflect that so your entry can be found easier. That is optional. This is a community project, so let's try to be mindful of that. Entries that sign up to play, and then don't post an entry, will be deleted the following week when the challenge closes. :)

As always, if you have any questions, or maybe need a little help with the challenges in any way, you are always welcome to contact us, and we will assist you in any way possible. It might be a good idea, from time to time, to pay a visit to the ***Welcome Entry & Rules Of Play*** to read the full list of Rules Of Play. The rules apply to everyone, and were made to insure everyone gets a fair chance to have their entry be seen, so let's try to keep that in mind. :)

Ok, now for the FUN part...grab your cameras, and your imagination, and GO BE PHOTOGRAPHERS! Make me proud, and don't forget to come back here on Wednesday, September 20th, to see all the entries by your fellow Round Robins. See ya then!
