A July photo challenge that’s simply Blissful

My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…

OK, maybe my bags aren’t actually packed yet, but this week I finally got my ticket for Blissdom 2014 in Mississauga from Oct. 2-4. And I. Can’t. Wait.

This isn’t my first Blissdom. I went to the conference in 2012, though with my community manager hat on, on behalf of the brand I was working for at the time. My goodness was I ever inspired as a blogger that weekend. In fact, I can say it was Blissdom in 2012 that made me want to blog more, to build out a community online, that made me feel good enough to be doing a blog at all.

So I knew I had to go this year.

Of course, October is still a long ways away. Luckily, Blissdom is doing a photo challenge for the month of July. I haven’t had this much fun doing a photo challenge in a while. (And 12 days into the month, I’m still posting a photo every single day! Win!)

It’s not to late for you to join in! One lucky photographer who completes all 31 photos by July 31 will win their Blissdom ticket. The daily themes are listed in the tweet to the left of this post (or find them here).

Here are a few of my favourite shots from the first 12 days of the challenge. Search the #BlissPhotoADay hashtag on Twitter or Instagram and see some amazing creativity at work. And make some new friends! I know I am!
