So WordPress is ending this fun, community-building, delightful challenge. They haven’t given a reason why, which is disappointing. I loved getting a new theme to inspire me and to get a chance to see how others had responded. I connected with other bloggers and I’ll sorely missed that.

It makes sense if an individual’s life changes and they must end a weekly challenge, but WordPress is a viable, successful company. If they want to hire me to handle this, I’m game. It wouldn’t be pricey.

Perhaps an individual with loads of followers will fill the gap, but it’s a commitment. I’ll follow if someone does.

I’ll be in shock for quite a while. What a shame WP. You didn’t have to go this route.
How sad.

I hope that this is like the “New Coke” fiasco and that they do resume this challenge. Again, I’d be happy to freelance as their new WPC Creator.

1. Each week, WordPress will 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 Wednesday 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 posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

Just a few wonderful posts:

This week Sepia Saturday is taking everyone to an amusement park or beach. I’m not much of a beach person with all the sand that gets everywhere and my easily sunburnt skin so here are some shots of amusement parks.

Above is the world’s first Ferris Wheel, described in detail in The Devil and the White City. It was made for the World’s Fair in 1893 in Chicago.

Isn’t this stereoscope cool? It’s of Coney Island in New York. Another circa 1910 Coney Island photo shows the Bridge of Laughs.

I had to include the sort of amusement park for little kids that my grandparents would take me to. Kiddieland had simple rides like this little train which where just right for the young. I wish I had some photos of my cousins and siblings at Kiddieland with our grandparents.
