Yesterday on Twitter I found out about the Blogtober Challenge; it’s where you write a blog post for every day during the month of October.

Halloween will be Life As Lauren Mikael’s first birthday...so I figured participating in Blogtober would be a good way to celebrate.
There are no rules for Blogtober, aside from blogging everyday. Which in itself is flexible, because life happens. (There are prompts in the Blogtober Facebook group if you are stuck on what to write and need a guide to follow)
I’m excited about this. I love a good challenge. In 2011, I participated in the 365 photography challenge on Flickr…which you may have guessed is when you take a photo every day for a year. I was so proud of myself for actually sticking with it and finishing the project. I realized I have talked (err written) a lot about my photography, but I haven’t really showed you guys much of it. I’ll link my 365 so you guys can see it here.
I had just gotten into photography and bought my first DLSR camera (Canon T1i) (https://amzn.to/3ijZ7P4) when I decided to start doing the 365, I figured it was a good way to learn how to use my camera and grow as a photographer. As you can see when you are looking through the photos…by the end of the project I was much better than when I started. I forced myself to only use Manual mode on the camera the whole time. The way I looked at it was: How would I ever grow as a photographer and get to know the camera if I used the automatic settings? The answer: I wouldn’t. You can’t learn anything if you are letting the camera do all the work for you.
Anyway, back to Blogtober. For the most part right now I am going to be just as surprised as you are when it comes to what I am going to blog about each day this month, haven’t planned much out yet…but I think it will be fun for me, and I hope you enjoy it too!
