Linkys are great, there are plenty around to choose from. But what about a Photography Linky? There doesn’t seem to be many around for us budding photographers.
A few months ago I decided to make my own. I decided to have a challenge linky, but it didn’t seem to kick off, I think maybe the challenge part was putting people off as not everyone wants a challenge, or has the time to go out. Whatever peoples reasons I stopped running it.
With the news of the great MySundayPhoto ending this coming December 2018 I thought I needed to re fill that hole. I’ve been taking part in Darrens MySundayPhoto for some time now and the Linky as a whole is a brilliant community and I am sad to see that go, however the MySundayPhoto is still running on Instagram and you can still tag your photos to that page.
However since the Linkup is ending we have to move on, and that’s where my new #MyPhotoFriday blog link up comes in. I have some long term plans with this linky but just to start you can post any theme as long it is photography based of course.
As some of my readers will know, photography is one of my main hobbies and I do post about my images a lot and how they were shot, so I hope to help people shoot better images by entering them into the Linky itself with the hopes to inspire and teach other budding photographers and hobbyists.
My long term plan once it gets up and running is to introduce a little friendly competition or themes each week as well tutorial videos on how to shoot certain themes or subjects, but it will be down to the readers if they want to participle or not as not everyone wants to take part, it won’t be a rule to enter nor will it be forced upon you. But that’s for later.
And I’m not alone in this new venture. We have 2 Photo loving Hosts. Myself of course and David from Yorkshire Dad of 4, So you can enter your links each week to either of our blogs.
#MyPhotoFriday will run once a week from Friday 12am to Sunday 11:55pm.
Here is the badge if you want to grab it and place on your site or blog post ready for theLinky to start on the 16th November 2018.
