This 365 day project features photos that include words (actual or implied),
text, books,
writing, letters and numbers, signs, libraries, and.... well, you get the idea.


the rules

I'm interested to hear the rules that others have set for themselves when doing their 365 projects. I know that with my schedule, I could soon drive myself insane if I tried to post a photo on the same day that I took it every day. So I gave myself some wiggle room. Here are the rules I set for myself (so far, anyway!):
  • Thou shalt post a photo every day.
  • Thy photo should be taken within the week OR
  • If it is an edited or altered photo (I work on vintage and texturized photos) it shalt be done in the past 24 hours.
  • At least once a month, thou must takest a photo of thyself and post it.
  • Thou must stick to the theme, OR twist it to thy liking.
  • Thou must havest fun, or else stoppest immediately and do something else.
OK -- I'm getting my thees and thous mixed up, but that's the general idea. What rules have you set for yourself?


  1. I love your rules! I absolutely agree that it should be fun and not become a boring job or a chore. I will try to take a photo every day and post it the same day but if a) I don´t find time to post it or b) I´m in stuck in some horrible place where computers and internet don´t exist, then I can post it another day. I have no theme so the only rule is to take a photo (photos) every day :D

  2. you are a list maker, hm? Anyway, I agree with above comment. I try to take the photo and post on the proposed day. However, this weekend I am going out of town and will be away from the computer, so I will either send them in from my phone (not as good of quality/light in the shots) 4 of them on Tuesday. Either way, it is still fun!

  3. I deleted my comment above as I see it linked to by old Blogger account, which I don't use anymore.

    So here it is linked to my 365 Blog on Wordpress:

    My rules are similar to yours too. I'm carrying my camera with me everywhere and snapping away. I pick an image to use that day and save the rest for a rainy day. Example - the photo I used for Day 14 was taken a week ago, but I needed some time to percolate how I wanted the finished image to look.

    To me it's all about fun and challenging myself to think outside of the box. So far, I'm doing that and having a great time!

  4. This is great. so I didn't see this until now, does this mean all 365 inner voices are in the tone of William Shakespeare? (Meeee too!!) love this, although I think you "wiggled" a bit on the selfies.

  5. yeah, i did wiggle. will try to rectify that in my next project. may even join BAM and bench monday!
