September 19th Weekly SH*T List

September 20th, 2019
I realize that it is now Friday in most of the world, but it is Thursday night where I am so I am still going to consider this a SH*T list!

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.

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 Composition: Rule of Odds.

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 38: Overlay.

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.

Just wondering if you had considered moving these posts to the General section , there would be less clutter around it and make it easier to find, ..just a thought!
September 21st, 2019
Yes - there is a ton of clutter under the Challenges and Discussions page, especially with people reminding members about challenges about to end.That is how the Weekly SH*T list cam about in the first place ... to make it easier for members to keep track of challenges.
But I do know that it gets buried pages back within days.
Ross @Scrivna - is it possible to get the weekly SH*T list onto your Weekly blog or giving Themes and Challenges its' own section rather than duplicating Hot Topics and Latest Discussions?
The Weekly SH*T List would still get buried quickly if it were put under General as Kali suggested although I will do this to see if it helps members find it more quickly.

I know I bookmark them, so I don't have to dig through the listings.
