WPC Favourites

So, the WordPress powers-that-be are shutting down the Weekly Photo Challenge, and for the final instalment we are invited to share our favourite photo. I can’t possibly choose one from among my thousands of photos, so I’ve gone for a collection of faves from my own Weekly Photo Challenge posts (my first was in August 2013). I’d actually forgotten about a lot of the photos I’ve posted over the years!

Like many other WordPress bloggers whose comments I’ve read, I can’t understand why the WPC is ending. It’s been a successful vehicle for fostering engagement and sharing, and I’ve met many talented and interesting people around the world via it. To close the WPC will surely make us all a bit more insular. The official explanation — “we’ll be focusing our attention on other projects that help remain the best place on the web to publish, build an audience, and find a community” — rather interestingly ignores the fact that the Weekly Photo Challenge DOES (whoops, DID!) build audiences and communities.

It was fun while it lasted.

  1. Makes you wonder on what they will be focusing. I liked dipping in to the challenge to see what other people (those I don’t follow) came up with. As you say, it was an opportunity to meet new people and discover new blogs.Oh, well, they say change is as good as a rest. Although in my experience that isn’t always the case.


  2. Nice today to see this post of yours–it’s clear you appreciated those photo challenges. Your photos are impressive. Like you, I started about 2013 with the photography I did.
