As many of you already know, I have been participating in the fun meme, "Shoot Me" for the past year. This meme was created and hosted by Carin at Forever In Blue Jeans. Carin has completed two years of posting photos on her blog and she is ready for a much needed break to concentrate on her photography career. I have offered to continue as the hostess for this meme and Carin graciously obliged.
For those of you who are not aware of this blogging meme, allow me to explain the rules. They are quite simple:
It's time to stop hiding behind that camera of yours. Your family is missing you in the picture. So it's time to post a picture of YOU (yes, you) every Thursday with your child, your spouse, your friend, your dog, or even by yourself. Just get in the picture, you'll be glad you did!
As Carin best explains, it is so important to have that moment, that memory. PLEASE, please, please make sure you are finding yourself in the picture more and more often. Most of us are way too hard on ourselves and maybe don't like to look at pictures of ourselves. But, the pictures are really a gift to those that love us. Your kids and loved ones don't care if you have a few extra pounds, a bad hair day, you name it. Just don't forget... hand that camera off and continue to get in the picture!!!!
I do hope that you will all join me in playing this EASY weekly meme which will take place every Thursday-year round. If there is a week that you do not wish to play, take a break and jump in the following week. Feel free to grab the "Shoot Me" button. I will post Linky Tools every Wednesday evening or first thing Thursday morning so you can link up and play along. Don't forget to visit the other players and leave them some comment love.
