Once a month, I post a segment called Bloggers Like Us. In it, I propose a question, asking for a picture of one of your favorite things, spots, memories, or foods. Then, if you choose to participate (which I truly hope you will!!!), you will just need to post a picture on your blog to answer the question by a designated time. (You can even include a short paragraph or sentence as a caption, and I’ll probably include it in my recap post).
And then, when I post the next Bloggers Like Us segment, I include all of your pics, and we’ll get to know even more about each other. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words!
This Month’s Challenge — There’s No Place Like Home!
I was eating breakfast outside on my porch the other day, and I was captivated by the beauty around me. The sun was shining through the leaves of the surrounding trees, and each sunbeam seemed to cause the morning dew to sparkle. It was almost magical even.
It was then I realized that as beautiful as Hawaii may have been, there really is no place like home. There is beauty all around us, we just need to take the time to see it. Sometimes, we need to take the time to look through the eyes of a captivated child… or an artist… or even a tourist. 🙂
So this month’s challenge is to spend some time (whether it be a day, an afternoon, or even just five minutes) and to look at your familiar surroundings as though you’re seeing them for the first time. Take a picture and capture that field full of wildflowers, the rows of growing corn, your backyard of green grass and oak trees, the street of bustling shoppers, the mountains in the distance, the nearby lake you love so much, a restaurant full of local flavor, or even that statue in the city center that makes you stop and remain still for just a moment.
Remember, we all live in different states… or even countries! So while you might wake up to mountains, farmland, or towering skyscrapers every morning, the rest of us may have not seen it! (Granted, for securities sake, I’m not asking you all to post pics of your street corners or the front of your houses)!! 🙂 But try to get a picture of an area that represents the beauty of your home.
And then, we’ll all do a little bit of traveling together… without having to pay a cent!
1. Take a picture and post it on your blog, anytime between now and Monday (June 24th).
2. Comment on this post and include the link to your blog post.
3. I will post the pics on an upcoming blog post for all to see!
Ready… Set… Let’s TRAVEL! 🙂
***And don’t forget, I’m always open to ideas for this ‘Bloggers Like Us’ segment, so let me know if you have any thoughts or even challenges that you might like to see featured!***
