Let's get to know each other

Gene, a long time blogging friend has come up with an idea to further blogging friendships which I will participate in.

He says: "I would like to take a minute and build upon the warming the world through friendship idea that many bloggers recently participated in. We post on our blogs, get replies and post on other people's blogs, and over the course of time start to get to know each other a bit. We can gauge the personality of another blogger through the words they type but wouldn't it be nice to get a little insight into what they really see when they look out their windows? I was thinking we need to try and do something about that, so I decided to try and do something visual that we could all participate in. Here's how it'll work:

1) On Saturday, October 20th, let's all make a post featuring pictures of where we live.
2) Try and take at least 10 photographs of your surrounding area and post them on your blog.
3) Make SURE you include a description of what each picture is. Give us as much detail as you can.
4) Sign up for the link on Gene's page, Turning the Pages of Life and place the links to the other participants on your page.
5) Comment on this post saying you'll participate and I will include those links in the body of this post so that all you'll have to do is copy them and paste them onto your blog.

Sound simple enough? I would love to see some pictures of where you live and I'm sure there are others who are of the same mindset. I'll leave this post up as a stick until then so make sure and sign up and start taking pictures!"

Those taking part so far are:

Gene at Turning the Pages of Life
Katherine at Wading through my stream of consciousness
Jeni at Down River Drivel
Claire at A Little Piece of Me
David at AuthorBlog
Vic Grace at Cariboo Ponderer
Ron Simpson at Cluttered Eclectic Mind
Sarge at Sarge Charlie
Vic Grace at Cariboo Ponderer

So go visit Gene and put your name on his linky list and let's see pictures of where you live on October 20th.

Sounds like a nice idea, although by Oct. 20th I'd probably forget to do it.

Maybe if I download a sticky function from FF to remind me...

I bet you would have some nice pictures for Quebec to share.
