It is back to being hot and gross outside, again. I got caught in the rain leaving work without my umbrella. It is usually in my backpack, has been since Vancouver in 2003. But it ended up being in the back seat of my car. Oh well. And I feel like I haven’t properly dried out yet. We had hazy hot and humid dinner of scrambled eggs, English muffin, fresh blueberries (picked by my sister Tara in Walpole, NH), and some strawberries. I certainly did not feel like cooking and neither did Allison.
This is one of the old cameras that is in our collection. We got it from Dan and Marcia when they moved. It is on display in the entertainment center. Sure make you think about hos far things have come in terms of technology.
My friend Mo gave me a great suggestion for the BenSpark’s August Add It Up Contest. She pointed me towards Photojojo.com. The blog has many great DIY projects for photographers. They are even looking for a person to be a part-time Writer & Editor! If you think that would suit you here is more information.
Photojojo (www.photojojo.com) is looking for one (1) awesome dude or dudette to be a part-time writer + editor + photographer + DIYer for our kick-ass photography newsletter.
This is a freelance, part-time position. You’ll be involved in all aspects of the creation of Photojojo: finding awesome photo stuff, writing and editing, finding and working with contributors, taking and editing photos, writing simple HTML, and publishing emails.
We want a creative writer who loves loves loves photography and isn’t afraid to get glue on his/her hands. Someone who can write friendly, fun, and efficient prose that makes people smile.
You’ll learn lots, have fun, and earn some dough. Plus you’ll be spreading awesome photography goodness to over 100,000 photography fans, twice a week!
Excellent writing skills, with the ability to write in a friendly, fun voice that matches Photojojo. An unnatural love for photography. The ability to write quickly and regularly on deadline. Superhuman organizational and follow-up skills. Internet-savviness, basic Photoshop skills, excellent photography skills, and knowledge of basic HTML (making links, embedding images, etc.)
IT SURE HELPS IF…
You’re up on popular culture, follow the latest photo stuff already, consider yourself a poet, but aren’t afraid to occasionally let out your inner geek. It helps if you live in NYC or San Fran, but it isn’t essential.

Sounds pretty interesting. I signed up for their newsletter and signed up for the forum and posted a topic about the contest. Mo gets 10 points for the suggestion because by signing up for Photojojo you can learn more great photography tips.
It also looks like my posting of the scores for the Benspark’s August Add it Up contest has kicked people into overdrive. I have so many points to count up right now. Christine wrote up a post about the contest – A very clever contest…. Drop her a comment on that post and earn some points in the contest too. Even Stephen The Dog went overboard and commented on a bunch of my videos. Even ones that wouldn’t get him points. But hey at least he watched them and decided to mock me in the process, gotta love that dog.
