I was proud to be featured on Marsha’s blog yesterday! If you enjoy photo and writing challenges, visit Always Write for more.
Here is an excerpt from her interview:
Allow me to introduce you to my friend, Terri. When I started this series on hosting challenges, the intent was to focus just on writing challenges. However, many bloggers do some of their best writing in response to photo challenges.Marsha Ingrao
What prompted you to begin to host a photo challenge?
Challenges bring new readers, interest, and engagement to any blog. Challenges fit well within the framework of hobby blogging.
I always enjoyed the WordPress Weekly photo challenge early on in my blogging journey and I discovered other challenges and participated in link parties. This was during the time I was building my readership and meeting new bloggers. I enjoyed the Sunday Stills Photography Challenge, but the original host announced he was through with blogging and called it quits.
My own blog morphed into photography with an emphasis on fitness, leisure, and recreation. After a long blogging break in early 2018, I woke up one night with the idea that I could reinstate and host Sunday Stills myself. The timing was rather interesting. I jumped back in with Sunday Stills in May 2018 just as WordPress announced the end of its ridiculously popular weekly photo challenge.
Coincidentally, I will be visiting Marsha next week at her home in Central California for a mini-blogger meet-up (with proper social distancing). We have been blogging pals since 2016. We plan to take pictures and enjoy the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas.

See you on Sunday for Sunday Stills!
