My Calendar Give Away

It's that time of year again that I have to make a decision to keep my POTD or to reduce it to a POTW or POTM. It's been another successful year for me keeping the commitment of posting a photo every day for 365 days. I don't know how many days I missed but it's like 5. I seriously have my camera in my hand almost every day, there are some days that I have to complete 2-3 days in one session, but most of the time I have taken that photo that day.

This year I learned so much more in both taking photos and editing them. My favorite things to learn is how to take great photos SOOC. This photo was taken using my custom white balance that I learned for the class I am teaching. It's my most used function and makes me pee my pants every time I use it and it works. Excuse me while I go change my pants (just kidding)

So back to the answer of my question..... Do I continue? I just watched the movie Julie & Julia this weekend. I loved it but boy could I relate.... Julie committed to posting on her blog for 365 days and cooking everyday..... sometimes blogging gets in the way of "your normal life".

Let's not answer the question quite yet I still have 4 days of 2009 to think about it. Instead let's give away a few calendars. If you would like to win a calendar made by me with a POTD from that month leave me a comment before December 31st, 10AM Central time.

I will give away 2 calendars if I get 10 comments, 4 calendars with 20, 6 with 40...... you get the idea. Miss El can count by 2's now and she gets so mad at me when I tell her she doesn't know how to count and should go back to Kindergarten.

To get your name added more than once you can send your family, friends and even total strangers you may happen to see in the grocery store or walking down the street, chatting on facebook, send an e-mail to your entire address book..... get them to comment and not think you're a freak..... and if they mention that you sent them I will add your name again. The more people that comment the more chances you have to win. We all like winning, right?

This calendar is a hot item, it's the talk of the office, people from cubicles across the room come over to check out the new month. LOL :)




You do not have to sign up with a google account to comment just comment with anonymous and add your name or a code name to the comment, check back after the 31st to see if you won. I will post the winners and give you information to contact me.


Good luck!

My desk would not be the same if I didnt have my Connie POTD calendar on it... I use it everyday! Please dont quit the POTD, you will get bored and post at least 4 pictures a week anyway. So really we are just helping you out (wink wink)

You are so talented and I enjoy every post and picture you share with me.

I've made checking your POTD a daily ritual and am simply amazed and in awe of your talent. Please continue into 2010 and beyond.

A new little grandbaby would love to treasure an Aunt Connie calendar from the year they were born.

I agree, that checking your POTD is a warming end to my busy days! Not only that, but it has inspired me to get a Canon, and I hope to learn from you as you continue to document daily!
Blessings- Amanda

Connie - I love your work and days would just not be the same without checking your POTD. You have been an inspiration as I have gotten back into photography. However, I understand the time contraints of life. Please don't stop altogether. We would all have withdrawls and have to go to POTD annonymous. haha Thanks for the inspiration.

Kayli indicated she wants to be in your calendar drawing as well. So even though it's the same email address, please count this as one for her! She loves watching your blog every day. It is a family activity we do together after dinner and homework each night!
Blessings for the New Year!

A calendar would be awesome but mostly I just want to encourage you to continue to display your amazing talent. I am sure it is a huge time commitment but we are grateful that we are able to enjoy the pictures you share. In that I do not possess such a talent but love the POTD, I hope you are able to at least continue with a POTW or POTM... which by the way could still be displayed on a calendar :)Thank you for sharing!

Connie,

I love you POTD! I check it multiple times during the week. I love it. You are so talented. Please keep doing what you are doing forever! My oldest will need a photographer for his wedding, if he ever decides to get married. And my youngest will need senior pics in 3 years! I can't imagine having anyone do them but you! Love you girl! Laurie

Pick me!!!! What would I put in the spot on my desk where last year's POTD calendar hangs?

I know how hard it is to post every day. I try but don't make it, not even close. I guess I would be ok with a POTW, I would have to adjust. Just don't quit completely.

I couldn't imagine coming up with different ideas to keep a blog interesting, but you do a fantastic job keeping it interesting (and beautiful). I miss you very much and your blog is a great way to keep up on what you are doing. A calender with some of your beautiful pics would be icing on the cake.

I definitely need this to remind me how much talent I am missing. Now that we don't work together anymore I don't know the latest trends or the latest gagets or the latest gossip. I promise to take very good care of it and treasure it dearly. Although, I'm not sure what I'm getting. Heck I think we should do the sisterhood of thr traveling calendar if I win it. I'll share it with whomever is interested. Now with that said....did I win???

I already have my calendar, but you need another post to give away more calendars. Keep the POTD!!
