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!

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
