Happy Anniversary and a Belated Happy Anniversary...

 “Dedication is not what others expect of you, it is what you can give to others.”



 I started this blog on February 16, 2009. This will make my 332rd post. On February 27, 2009, I started the "My Town" shoot-out with Reggie Girl. It was a little fun thing we did every Friday, posting photos from our towns.We would take turns picking the assignments. I picked the first assignment - signs. The above photo was one of ten signs I posted. We usually tried to post ten photos for each assignment.

People enjoyed our little shoot-outs and wanted to join in. "The more the merrier," we thought. I even started the Friday "My Town" shoot-out blog for those interested in joining up. It grew a little faster than we had expected and Reggie Girl dropped out. Due to time restrictions, I too, had to drop out. But I am happy to say that we picked up a great team of dedicated people who have done a wonderful job of keep the shoot-outs going.

Thank you to everyone for their dedication. This is your anniversary, too.I hope we can celebrate another one next year.

 I have enjoyed keeping up with what is happening, and when I have time, I do try and visit blogs around the world. My, we have some wonderful photographers who have joined up.

Thanks for your continued emails and friendship. Don't write me off completely. I may just "Mr. Linky" in one day.

I will watch Mr. Linky with more than a little anticipation, Patty. You have had an enormous impact on blogger and on the lives of so many of your fans.

Wishing you all the best.....

I can understand how much time it takes as these themes grow bigger, theres 4 of us havs a Header Challenge each week, we are going to grow by 1 or 2, then halt it to this amount.
We get quite a good few visiting us and its a lot of fun, it also helps us to enrich our photography.

What amazes me is that you started blogging around the time I did. I always thought you were an old timer at it. And I hardly miss any of your blogs but don't always comment.
