Better Than Amateur

So, here’s the deal. When I am enjoying a moment of solitude locked in the bathroom while my kids bang on the door I allow myself to dream of becoming a photographer (and also a airline stewardess and a real estate agent but that’s not what this post is about). I’ve decided that I’m going to start a new weekly feature that will let me get just a little bit closer to that dream. (No, I’m not delusional, I do not expect to become the next famous photographer – note to self: figure out the name of a famous photographer – but it’s my blog and I can do what I want!)

I hope you’ll consider joining me in my quest to become “Better Than Amateur” (note to self: figure out how to spell amateur without the help of spell check).

Here’s how it will work. Each week I will post a topic, then go forth and take a picture of said topic, then post it and wow you with my awesomeness. If you would like to join in (every week or just some weeks) feel free to grab the “Amateur” (thank you spell check) button – which I will have the link to on my sidebar as soon as I figure it out. (In the meantime I think you can just copy and paste the image.)

Speaking of figuring it out. Any of you savvy bloggers out there who want to explain to me how I can allow people to “link up” using the button please email me ( I don’t even know if I’m saying it right or even if I understand the concept. (Don’t judge, this is about photography, not being tech literate. Honestly! Sometimes you guys are just SO judgmental!)

So now that all of that is out of the way let’s get down to business. This week’s topic is (drum roll please)…

Take a Picture of…Something inanimate that has special meaning to you. (Sorry, sleeping children and spouses don’t count.)

I hope you'll join me on this fun new adventure!

  1. Sounds like a cool concept. Not sure what you mean by link up. You can try 'Mr. Linky'.

  2. Sounds like a fun project. Mandy at does a link up called SOS stepping out Saturday. I bet she'd be able to help if you emailed her.

  3. :) Fun meme! :)
    I use InLinkz for my WTF link up..
