Stop Press ! Changes to MOS

As you may have noticed I have been finding the Month of Softies gallery extremely hard to maintain. Each monthly gallery takes me over a full day’s work to put together so after thinking about it for some time this month I want to try something new. I hope it doesn’t put you off as it will be a little more work for you than sending a simple email and link.

If you would like to participate in MOS for July, it will be necessary to have a Flickr Account – if you don’t already have one, please sign up and start one. It’s free and easy.

Once you have your account up and running, please upload your Sock Monkey / Monkey creature / sock creation to your account and make sure you tag it… The tag you will need to use for July is “MOS July 2005” — easy! Make sure you include all three words in parenthesis and make sure you spell it all correctly. This will mean when we do a search for July’s gallery we will have an instant gallery from the first day someone sends in a contribution!

Also, I have started A Month of Softies group on Flickr which includes a group photo pool and a discussion board so join the group if you are interested.

Please let me know what you think about this change. I have been really tempted to stop the Month of Softies all together but this way we can keep it going FOR EVER!
