Picture a day at the beach: luxuriating in the heat of the prairie sun only to run into the lake to cool off. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. My boyfriend (now husband) and I walked along the shore that shimmering day so long ago and he discovered something I treasure, half-buried in the sand. This heart-shaped stone has followed us for over 25 years together, through countless days and three house moves. Worthless to anyone else, it’s priceless to me.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter — we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

      A weekend full of treasure, everyone!


  1. Wonderful challenge, and I love your story. I collect stones from beaches, and I have a few that are especially important to me. My favorite is the one I gave to a friend a few months ago; he carries it everywhere calling it his “lucky rock.”
