DOs and DON'Ts of the 21DC

You guys, this isn't supposed to be complicated. Did I somehow make it too complex? Because some of my esteemed colleagues were asking me stuff on Twitter and I've been getting all these emails and I end up wondering where I went so wrong with explanations. I have kept this as basic and simple as I can! I don't know how to make it easier!

So, for the newcomers and the people who are confused, here are the DOs and DON'Ts of the 21 Day Challenge.

You DO have to-
  • Get dressed according to the prompt (within a couple days of the prompt! no reaching back into your archives)
  • Take a picture
  • Blog the picture and submit your link to the link party OR
  • Add it to the Flickr Group

You DON'T have to-
  • Blog about the challenge
  • Link to me
  • Talk about the challenge
  • Add any of my buttons to your post or sidebar
  • Participate every day. You could participate on only one day or 20 of the days or whatever. Up to you.
  • Start from the beginning
  • Do it ON the day of the prompt (you have 72 hours to submit your link before the party closes, so you can be a couple days behind)
  • Tell me you are participating

Is it nice of you to link to me? Sure. And some people do use the buttons in their post but that's because they choose to. These things are not requirements.

Ok, are we good? Anyone else still have questions?


  1. We are clear! At least I am clear. :) I have found in this world that there just people who have questions, no matter what. Bless your soul for hosting this challenge. I can only imagine the work you are doing! But I am having a hoot of a time and am so happy you took this on! Thank you!!!!

  2. I fully intended to do all of the prompts, but, like I said in my blog, a lot of things got in the way. Hopefully by next week, I'll be able to really hop on board :/

  3. lol - this cracks me up. Good job summarizing :)

  4. Oh my heck, I'm so confused! Just kidding. :) You are up to 100 people on Flickr! I can only imagine the amount of time it takes to mark everything and go through all the pics/posts. I just scroll through the flickr pics and yikes, I get tired out. Good job!

  5. Thanks for answering again. Like Misty said, there are just people who have questions, you rock!!

  6. You've made it simple, I'm just bad at following directions. I'm just glad Meredith is listed first and not me!

  7. Clear as a bell... except one thing: When do we get prompts for next week?

    Thanks for your hard work!

  8. Haha very clear and I've been keeping up and checking back but not really participating yet...I might end up linking a picture or two hopefully!

    Question: How often do you do these? I really want to challenge myself to participate in most (if not all) but have been treating this one as more of a spectator. Hopefully you'll do another soon after! Let me know :)

  9. :) thanks for this! I was actually worried that it was too late for me to start. Now that I understand the guidelines I will definitely take part in a challenge or two.

    PS thanks times a billion for not requiring a button on my sidebar. It's getting a little button crazy.

  10. How do we know if we've won something?

  11. Emily- I'll be announcing winners on my blog.


Thanks for your comment!

Any trolls will be dragged into the trees and beaten soundly.
