To My Readers!

Friday, April 30, 2010

 I wanted to quickly tell you all about this really cool project, A Moment In Time, taking place this Sunday, May 2 that I just learned of today. The husband forwarded me a link to the New York Times blog post explaining it all, here is a little piece from the article;
Attention: everyone with a camera, amateur or pro. Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 (U.T.C./G.M.T.), as thousands of photographers simultaneously record “A Moment in Time.” The idea is to create an international mosaic, an astonishingly varied gallery of images that are cemented together by the common element of time.

How cool is that? All the photographs are then going to be available to view online on their website, you can click where you are on a map of the world  and see your picture along with what I'm sure will be a million other people's pictures. After I read the article I gasped when I saw that  this Sunday, in just two days, was May 2. I told Eric I had to hurry up and get the word out.

He said; "To who?"
And I replied; "To my readers!" Because I have always wanted to say that. Ha ha ha!
 If you do end up participating I think it would be really cool if you post your photograph on your blog and then leave me a comment letting me know you did because I want to check them all out. And even if you don't post it, or you don't even have a blog (but why wouldn't you?) how neat is it to know that you are taking a picture at the exact moment that so many other people are all around the world!?! I love stuff like that. It makes the world seem so much smaller, and us all a little more connected to each other. Or maybe I am just a dork, a picture-taking dork.
 My moment in time is Sunday at 10:00 a.m.(Central Daylight Time) but depending on your time zone, yours will be different. It explains it all in the article-times, how/where to post the picture, etc. Go read it here and then spread the word! Come back Sunday to see my moment.
 Oh and speaking of My Readers? I said that when I hit 20 Followers I was going to do a give-away and  now I see I am at 31 (which is awesome because it seemed like forever that it stayed at just a sad, little 6!) so I am going to have my very first GIVE-AWAY next week! So all you lurkers that don't comment, you know who you are,  you're gonna have to crawl on out of the woodwork next week so you can enter.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Ha, that's a great way to bring the lurkers out... Hahah. ;)
    Hmm. I'd say I'm in!

  2. That's pretty cool. I'm so glad you put the time, because I was sitting here thinking, "When is 15:00?" I'm in!

  3. I'm so glad you posted about this! Can't wait to see what everyone is doing at that time!

  4. I got my moment posted.

    Thank God for iPhones.

  5. Poo! I'm mad that I missed this! After the kiddo b-day party, I kind of checked out for a while ;-)
