Hello again my IggleBugs and future IggleBugs! We’re getting close to hitting that two month mark! Do you know what that means?! Achievements!  One you’ll find in the forums, and another you’ll get if you tweet  @IggleBugs once you take your pictures seven days in a row. (you don’t have to upload them seven days in a row, but at least make sure you’re taking one every day.) Now there’s a new achievement for 30 days in a row, so if you tweet at me, I’ll give you the achievement code for that one! Once we get to 60 days, the achievements will be worth more karma, so make sure you keep at it!

For anyone who doesn’t know what’s going on here, if you haven’t checked out the IggleBugs lately, you should swing by and have a look at our Photo 365 Challenge thread in the IggleBugs Forum! Join us if you’re looking for a fun photographic challenge for 2014! You don’t need a fancy camera or anything, just a passion for taking pictures! Upload and share however you want, if you want. It’s entirely up to you! The best part about it is you can make your day one whenever you want! So feel free to jump in late, we won’t bite!

I will post seven themes and ideas a week as we go through the year. They won’t be strict assignments, just helpful ideas to get you through the week if you get stuck or feel like you need some inspiration.

Here is the list of helpful ideas for week eight!

IggleBugs Week 8

So now is time for a special new segment: IggleBug of the Week!

This week we are featuring IggleBug Kara! (pronounced Car-uh. Kar-uh?) She’s been doing a theme for her project 365. She takes a self portrait every day and posts it to her flickr!

Here’s one of my favorite photos she’s done so far for the 365.


Isn’t she cute?! Check out her whole set of photos for the 365!

Have a good week and don’t forget to follow @IggleBugs for updates and encouragement! If you use the hashtag #IggleBugs365, I will try to retweet a few photos every day!
