September 26th Weekly SH*T List

September 26th, 2019
I am moving the Weekly SH*T List to the General section as suggested by Kali @kali66 who also uses this section for her Fav Fav feature. It just may make it easier for those of you who utilize this handy weekly list of challenges to find.

While the list will still get pushed back a couple of pages under the Latest Discussions and Hot Topics during a busy week, you will be able to quickly find it by clicking on General under the Discuss menu bar.

The name is the acronym of the words 'So Happy It's Thursday', (SH*T). Just as everyone understands that TGIF stands for 'Thank Goodness It's Friday', Thursday's acronym is not quite as polite but very effective. This list is usually posted early Thursday morning (EST), but will occasionally get posted later if there is something going on in my life.

For those who are not sure what the challenges listed below are all about, just click on the link and it will bring you right to the original post that has all the rules and information needed to enter. I have also spelled the acronym of any challenges in full for further clarity.

While the Weekly SH*T list only lists the ending date of the current challenges, please go through the discussion board to find challenges to be voted on. Voting can be just as important as participation and is generally the most fun and exciting part of the challenges.

Don’t forget to hit the link to check out the details of any challenges you are considering in case I may have messed up the dates or such.

A special edition Robert Frank Tribute Challenge started by SergeantPepper @walrus to honour the legendary Robert Frank, who died this past week on September 10, 2019. Challenge ends on Sunday, October 13th.

5+2 for the love of selfies and Get Pushed are both weekly challenges that open to all and well worth considering. Their links are found below.

The 2019 edition of the 52 Week Challenge hosted by Mel @m2016 runs for the whole year but you can jump in at any point. This week it is Inspiration: The Elements.

And then there is the ongoing Word of the Month for those who occasionally lose their mojo or those who simply need ideas or inspiration.

Sheralee @bella_ss has started the next edition of “52 Portraits of Me” that will run for the full year of 2019. This week is Week 39: Motion.

Many members of the 365 community have made annual challenge traditions that help us grow as photographers while having those also participating cheer us along. This is the sixth year that Richard Sayer @vignouse has invited us to join him with his NF-SOOC challenge (nifty-fifty or equivalent lens and Straight Out of the Camera). It really is not as complicated as it sounds!
Full details can be found here:

Please do not forget to check out these weekly features where you can highlight your work by posting your favourite shot of the week, do a Flashback, or highlight the work of another. They are easy, and fun to do.

Along with the new look at 365, the Weekly theme has morphed into a monthly theme.
September introduces the exciting technique of Long Exposure.

I love this list. I refer to it nearly every week. I hope it will be easier to find, now.
Can you add the six-word story to your list?
September 27th, 2019
Thank you wendy
September 28th, 2019
Will do!

I just checked out the six word story and it is currently in voting. I did not see where Clare has started the next one yet.
Let me know if you know something different.

@farmreporter I can't find the Oct 3rd version of this list, or the October words. What am I missing?
October 7th, 2019
You are not missing anything, Liz ... except me. So sorry.
I have not had a chance to sit down and do either of them yet. I barely have time to upload a couple of pics tonight before bed!

@farmreporter Thanks for the response, Wendy :) Didn't mean to chase you, just thought I was looking in the wrong place. Take care, eh?
October 9th, 2019
Ahhh - found it! Sorry to have bothered you Wendy!! Cheers Rob

P.S. - if you would like a hand doing this ( it must be sooo much work) I would be OK to step in as a back-up for a few weeks now and then if you you need any help. Cheers Rob

Rob - you could keep an eye on this list and if you notice that I have gone AWOL and not done it by Saturday (your time) please do assume that I am really busy and did not have a chance to get it done.
I promise I will not be offended if you take the initiative and do it for that week.
Life has been hectic lately but I am doing this one at the moment.
October 10th, 2019
That would be fine - I'm more than happy to be a backstop if needed. Cheers Rob
