I have decided to start a new weekly photo linkup called, “Hit the Road, Jack” to motivate me to leave the house. Each week I will go somewhere – anywhere – (I mean, I do live right near Paris, after all) and take pictures of what I see there. Maybe you would like to do the same?
It doesn’t have to be exotic. In fact, you may not think where you live is all that exotic but it probably is to those of us who don’t live there. Show me your farms, your suburbs, your cities, your quiet lanes, your noisy streets, your local hangouts … As long as it’s not in your own home or garden, it counts. Let’s get off the couch together!
There are no real rules, other than the “leave your property” rule if you want to play along. You can imbed Instagram photos of where you’ve been (maybe get some new Instagram followers that way?) or just upload pictures to your posts the old-fashioned way. You can include one photo or many; no text, or a guided tour. Just add the Hit the Road, Jack button to your post so people can come here and find the link. If you don’t have a blog, tweet your Instagram post with the hashtag so I can see it.
Oh yes! The hashtag! Make your posts more visible to everyone who is following, by promoting with the hashtag #HTRJack
The blogs in the linkytool below will appear in random order so everyone is fair game. You don’t know who was here first. Since everyone has an equal shot of being visited, woo people by making your thumbnail shot and title appealing! 😉
No one has time to comment anymore, right? Why not comment on each other’s posts by using one apt word. That takes away all the pressure, right? One word.
Anyone can type one word.
And I will choose one of you to feature for next week’s linkup.
Oh my photo? Ooooh! I haven’t actually gotten out of the house to do this yet. (Scrambles madly). But this is precisely the motivation I need, right? I’m claiming your indulgence and re-posting a photo from when my father and his wife were here in April and we went to the Champagne region.
Just this once – a repeat photo.
Then I’ll get off the couch. I promise.
