I probably bit off more than I can chew, but I wanted a challenge. Good work, I think I got one! Sometimes with a small business, ok who are we kidding, a LOT of times with a small business you get caught up in…well…the business! I noticed in 2011 that I was behind the computer a lot and not as much shooting as I wanted. So this year, for 2012 and all of it’s 366 Days (yep, it’s Leap Year!) I am going to photograph one dog and post him or her right here on this blog. I will do my best to cover as many breeds as possible, but it’s really going to be who I come in contact with that day.
Wish me luck. I hope you follow along and enjoy the adventure!
Maybe at year end it’ll turn into a cool calendar! When you check back here for the next day, go ahead and share these posts! Thanks!
SO after a week of doing this and posting pics and meeting people, I thought…although this is a great personal project, it could be so much more. So last night I thought instead of it only being a personal project, I am also going to definitely make a calendar at year end, and also a portion of the proceeds are going to The Chase Away K9 Cancer Fund within the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
This gives me every day for the rest of the year to talk to people about Canine Cancer and hopefully raise awareness of how common it really is. I am hoping everyone that I meet, and you guys too, will help me spread the word on this. Share the Dog-A-Day photos on FB with your friends, tell people about this project, maybe consider getting a calendar of a bunch of cute doggies at the end of the year.
Funny how things start out, I really wanted to just get out more, then I realized there were bigger things to do with my time away from my desk. I’m glad I got it figured out in just a week…it’s nice to have another motivator. A goal.
Anyway, even if you don’t spread the word (although I sure hope you will!), I still hope you’ll stop by and check in on how it’s going. Maybe one day I’ll bump in to you and your pup will be in the calendar!
Here’s to helping kick the crap out of cancer!
