Announcement: To Be Continued!

**Please note: this was back in 2009!**

Hi, Robins!

We've just about reached the time of year when everyone is extra busy with holiday shopping, baking, parties, family reunions, etc. Participation in memes naturally drops off between Halloween and New Year's, displaced by "real life" - whatever that is!

Rather than fight this very reasonable trend, Carly and I are taking a short break. The Round Robin Photo Challenges is going on hiatus for the second time ever, giving us - and you - a chance to rest and recharge, and catch up with the rest of our lives. Let's start fresh with our next Challenge date in the new year, on Saturday, January 2nd, 2010. Just so we're not completely leaving you in the lurch, we'll announce the next topic on Thanksgiving Weekend. Be sure to stop back then for our next inspiring (we hope) theme, and to RSVP.

And thanks, as always, for your support and participation in the Round Robin Photo Challenges. Carly, Steven and I couldn't do it without you!

In the meantime, don't forget our other memes:

The Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot - hosted by Carly, has a new topic every Monday!

The Weekend Assignment - hosted by Karen, is a weekly writing prompt, with a new topic each weekend.

Happy holidays, and we'll see you soon!

Round Robin Challenges: Shooting In Low Light (Indoors And Out)

Hi Robins :) NOW CLOSED!

If it's Sunday, it must be time for an all new challenge...

Save the date! Our next RRC will be held on Saturday, October 17th, and comes to us by way of our friend Terri, author of the blog, "Ways I See The World." She has suggested we take on "Shooting In Low Light, Inside And Out." Sounds pretty straight forward, grab your cameras and show us what you find in low light settings. I hope to see all of you, and maybe a few new faces as well. Here are a few things to keep in mind about how we play...

1. Please give us your R.S.V.P on or before the day of the challenge. It is especially helpful if you sign up no later then the night before, as that is when we compile the Linking List for you.

**R.S.V.P. in the following format...

1. Your First Name or Online Nickname
2. The name of you blog, journal or website
3. The full address of where your RRC entry can be found on the day of the challenge.



**We need your complete information each time you play.

2. DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY PRIOR TO THE CHALLENGE DATE! It will do nothing but cause confusion on the day of the challenge. Besides, we don't post the Linking List until then, so please DON'T POST EARLY... ok? On the other hand, if you can't post on the day of the challenge, for whatever reason, just let us know and we will make a note of your intention to play on another day, next to your name on the Linking List so folks will be able to find your entry.

3. If you are new to the Round Robin Challenges, please read the Welcome Entry which can be found on the sidebar. It explains everything you need to know to play along. New folks are always enthusiastically welcome, so let us know if this is your first time playing so we can give you a proper welcome!

Ok, that's it, you know what to do. See you on Saturday, October 17th, 2009!


By the way, if you enjoy playing the Round Robin Challenges, you might also enjoy our other memes...

Weekend Assignment (Karen posts a new topic to write about each Friday)

Monday Photo Shoot (I post a new Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot assignment each Monday morning!)

If you have any questions about how to play the RRC or either of the memes listed above, feel free to email either Karen or myself. Our contact information is on the sidebar! :)

Linking List, as of 9:58 PM PT, 10/17/09
