Thanks Jack!

I've just uploaded day 5 and already I'm realising that it's not quite as easy as people might think!

You'll have to do what Sam has done. Open a tin of spaghetti letters.
There's a message in there for every day of the year WinkGrin

How are you going to go about this Sam?

A year's worth of random stuff, or something more structured. Do you have a cunning plan?

Incidentally, it's a leap year so you'll have to upload 366 images.

Ah yeah I hadn't remembered about the leap year. I don't really have a plan so it will be more random I think. I have wanted to do one for a long time so hopefully I can keep it going. How about you?

Hi again Sam!

I'd been in the doldrums as far as taking photographs was concerned for a little while.
There was never any shortage of enthusiasm but somehow, I just couldn't seem to find anything that interested me sufficiently to photograph it.
I'd toyed with the idea of a 365(6) for a while and I stumbled upon a site that hosts nothing but 365s and it turned out that there's a group on here dedicated to it as well so I thought I'd give it a go.
Initially, I was going to do as you're planing to and upload a shot (the same one) to each of the sites, I'm using three, every day but I was a little concerned that I'd end up uploading shots of any old thing just to make up the numbers.
So instead I decided to divide the year into sections or segments of no particular size and fill each segment with a short series. A week or so of shots of cars or people perhaps. Architecture for another week. That sort of thing.
The first shot I uploaded (it's in my blog) was of a local shop called the "Sweet Station."
Consequently, my dear friend Jack, aka "strokebloke" thought it might be a good idea if I filled the first segment of my collection with "stations."
And that's what I'm uploading at the moment. When I run out of "stations" ideas, and there's a surprising number, I'll move on to something else and so on.
To a certain extent, I'm making life difficult for myself by doing it this way but it is definitely keeping me focused whereas I doubt that a random approach would.
My biggest enemy is time, or a lack of it. It's all very well having grand ideas of what subjects represent a "station," however loosely. It's another thing getting to places and actually getting the shot.
It's early days yet and earlier still (just!) for you but I shall be interested to see how you get on. I'll add you to my favourites (I hate that expression) and set a notification.

Good luck. It's harder than you think!

Bren.

You'll be pleased to know Bren that under the new Beta regime, Favs will become Connections SmileSmile
Sorry to use your upload like a forum Sam, but it's easier than chasing Bren all over the site
