  1. Hi..I’m so glad I stumbled upon your page. I’m your basic blog stalker lol …never commenting. Too chicken, I guess. But I just have to say how much I love the prompts for the CY 365. Creativity is my biggest challenge and sometimes I think there isn’t a creative bone in my body. I have attempted these challenges before only to peter out a month or two in. I may not be posting every day but at least I’m still plugging along. I’m determined to complete the year. So, thank you and keep those prompts coming!

    • Hi Debbie!
      So glad you’ve posted (and stopped stalking ;)). Glad you are plugging along with us, we all can use a bit of support to make it through a photo a day!

  2. Katrina,
    I stumbled upon your website today, I love it! I’m part of a local photography club and 5 of us are doing a 365 day challenge. I started on Jan 10th, haven’t missed a day yet. Sometimes it’s hard to think outside the box and get creative. Today when I saw your website, I signed up right away. I will tell my friends too, what an awesome idea, I have your January & February list printed… now I will start trying these ideas. I will upload my photos starting today to your site. Thanks again, love your webpage.

    Katrina, have loved participating in 360, went to upload my photo today and can’t find the upload button–please help

  4. Thanks so much for the list, the prompts and for changing the time the emails were being sent, with the time difference I was receiving them at 1pm, now I can read them first thing in the morning 🙂

    It’s true that I only followed it half the month, mostly because I spend most of the time at work and when I leave is almost dark. But February looks amazing! There’s quite a bit of them that I want to do 😉 Besides being my birth month, and you making it so pretty, I will be following it a lot more. I’m still learning and I can only do it with my phone, but I’m starting to think a bit more when I take them, still too much too learn. I actually made through my first month with only 2 days when I forgot! So, not too bad!

    Well… after all that! Just wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work! 😀

  5. Oh, I can’t wait for Retail Therapy. That prompt sounds like a good excuse…if you know what I mean! The other one that got my attention is Crowded Around, hmmm this one can be interesting. February is looking good 🙂

  6. updating my calendar for February!!!! I appreciate the time and effort you put into these lists and keeping this project going! I already have some great ideas for these prompts and can’t wait for some warmer weather so I can get out there more!!!!!!!

      AND… I just looked at my family calendar and the day you have for “Oh Boy!” is the day I get to visit my great friend and her new baby boy for a photo filled weekend! SO excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Just reading these prompts and transferring them into my daily planner I am already getting inspired. Just finishing my first month tomorrow, and I am really loving it.

    Thank you for this website and for all that you do. I have never done a 365 before and your prompts and email tips make this so easy. I have pushed myself this month to try new things and have moved out of my comfort zone. Thank you. I am so glad I stumbled onto this site in search of a 365 challenge.

  9. “Old School” intrigues me most. Because I teach in an old school (built in 1928), and I can think of several directions you could take us with that prompt! Thanks for doing cy365, I look forward to it every day. Yours is the first e mail I open most mornings.
