How is everyone finding the January challenge? Answered

Picture of

Hey guys, 

I know we all kind of talk a bit on 365 but I was wondering how everyone else is finding the photo a day here?

I've been loving the photography aspect of it, it's been driving me to take more interesting photos and I've found myself getting excited about my photo for the day... 

I've been really enjoying the 365 community so much as well, it's full of great commenters and so many amazing photographers. 

Y'all much to say on finding a photo a day?

Yaaaay!  I'm so glad you've really enjoyed it, and I'm glad to see the responses in this thread!

My desktop computer failed, so I haven't been able to keep track and comment as much as I would have liked to over the past week and a half.  My camera is full of pictures which have yet to be uploaded, but on the bright side, I have a brand spankin' new computer now and will soon be back on track for patches and what-not.  365 seems to have worked well for everyone despite initial misgivings about relocating, and I've been VERY impressed with how well the challenge was received.  I honestly thought I might be the only one participating.  I'm very relieved that I was wrong.

If everyone's still enthusiastic, I would like to have it continue with a March Challenge.  There might be a different kind of challenge for February since it's already the 4th, but I hope everyone will continue taking a photo-a-day throughout the month.  If anyone has any good ideas for a February Challenge, I'm open to suggestions.

I'm sticking on with the 365 so I'll be doing a photo a day anyway... It's been really good and I'm glad you told us all about it...

Umm we could write something a day? One epic laser battle a day?

It's been tight - I still need to get a shot today, but I've been slightly distracted by a job interview...

Have you been having fun getting them, just lacking in time?

Was that for technology teacher, I remember you mentioning something...

Yes - I find myself watching a bit far off the road for that shot

(Yes - I had the interview this morning, and I'm expecting a phone call "this evening". It is now 17:35...)

Ahh, I keep having moments where I don't have the camera...

Hmm, hate waiting on callbacks, been sitting here waiting to find out about interviews for a few really important jobs to me it's the waiting... Not to mention when they tell you later than they said...

Well you could continue, I've simply lost the image for the 11th, I can't find it.

I'd say you could give yourself some leniency on the missed days...

Rough, you could always try for February in that case. I might try to do the whole year.

I've quite enjoyed it, though finding a decent shot every day definitely qualifies as a "challenge"!  I've spent more time outdoors this month--despite the general nastiness of the weather--than I have at any time since I quit smoking, so that's definitely been a real positive.

I also really like following everybody and checking in to see what you've all done each day. I even inspired a friend to join up on 365project, and recommend that you all follow her as well as me: http://365project.org/chipmunk

It's been a lot of fun so far, so three cheers for angryredhead!

Definitely, hip hip...

Good on you for quitting, I failed miserably...

Cool, a few of my friends are doing the challenge on facebook, been harping at them to join, also been trying to make my mother join.

The additions each day are great though I find myself on the latest page more often.
