I Clicked it Up a Notch Photography Contest-June 2012
Lifestyle

Did you click it up a notch this month?? I hope so! You guys continue to impress me each month as you challenge and push yourself! Here is my best photo from the month. I was so blessed that my parents were able to come out and welcome Claire. We were sad to see them go!

In order to be eligible to win, please read the list below.

  • -Only one photo in the entry post.
  • -Our button (not just a link) must be in the post.
  • -The photo needs to have been taken this month.
  • -Summit your permalink, not your main blog address. You can use a flickr account as well (Just add the button in the comment section)

Click It Up A Notch

That’s it! It’s that simple! So go through all your photos you have taken this month and submit your favorite/best one. Don’t forget to leave comments on the other entries because that is half the fun!! I recommend commenting on the 5 people in front of you. That way everyone gets at least 5 comments.

Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments! I try my best to comment on everyone but I can’t make any promises.

We will pick our top 5 favorite and post them on Thursday, July 5th (Japan Time/Wednesday evening EST) for you to vote for the winner. The voting will be open until July 9th (Monday night Japan Time/Monday morning EST) and the winner will be announced Tuesday, July 10th (Japan time).

    I was having issues with posting the blog button. i copied and pasted the link provided onto my Live Writer program but it keeps showing up as a link instead of the button. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I hope I am still qualified to enter the contest. :)

      Hey Amanda!

      Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with Live Writer. Are you putting it in the “html” section? I know Blogger and WordPress have an “edit html” mode and a “view” mode. You want to put the coding in the “edit html”. Hope that helps!

      Amanda,

      It looks like you didn’t copy all of the coding for the button here it is –

      Oops! It posted the button. Well, go up to the box where the code is and make sure you scroll down to get all the code.

      Ditto.. can’t get it to work in flickr. I used to work with html and all looks sound, even by flickr’s instructions, but still it won’t work :/

      • June 28, 2012 at 11:09 AM

        Hey Becca!
        If your Flickr account is new they won’t let you put the coding in there. Maybe you and Kathy could put the button in for each other.

    • June 28, 2012 at 11:08 AM

      Hey Kathy!
      I have heard if your Flickr account is new they are funny about letting you put in coding for a button. Maybe you could ask someone to post it for you. It looks like Becca is having troubles too. Maybe you could each post the button for each other.

    • June 28, 2012 at 11:28 AM

      Hey Kathy! Can you leave the link to your image? I’ll add the button for you if you add it for me :) Here’s mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7458035604/

          Kathy, you will need to insert your link in the link up. Below everyone’s thumbnails there is a blue button that says “add your link”. Click on that and it will prompt you to leave your name, email, and link. Hope that helps!!

          Sorry for the confusion! I realized I misread your first comment. I guess I need more sleep :O) You will need to add your link on this page of my blog :O)

        • July 9, 2012 at 9:17 PM

          Sorry Kathy! I was on vacation and not checking email :( I’m glad somebody was able to post the button for you though!

      Read your post. I tried adding the button for you. Very cute picture.. I reminds me so much of one I have of my oldest son when he was that age.

            Hey girls! I love how you are helping each other out! Courtney was unable to add the button and left this comment. Can anyone help her?

            Hey there everyone…I am sneaking in at the last minute to add my photo. I am new to Flickr so I can’t add the button! I have written it in the comment box. Could someone PLEASE add the button for me? Thank you all so much! (I am number 82.)

            Thank you!!!

    I don’t have anything to say other than how much I adore this picture. It is one for the wall.

    You, my friend, have definitely clicked it up a notch.

    I’m not sure if my photo has copied corrected (no. 28) and I’m also not sure how to comment on others. I have seriously limited skills (!!!) but it seems I need to subscribe to various things to comment. I would love to comment on each entry so is this the way to do it?

  • June 29, 2012 at 5:45 AM

    Such a sweet shot. I’m sure you loved having your family there with you.

    That is such a beautiful photo – so full of joy :-)

  • June 29, 2012 at 8:49 AM

    I like your picture of your family, so glad I can participate for the first time

  • June 29, 2012 at 1:51 PM

    I love this photo! What a special moment for your family. I am down to two weeks, and cannot wait for our little girl to arrive. You’re photos are inspiring to me to make sure I capture those first introductions.

      Hi, I hope I put the button on the right photo. I actually put it on number 81 rather than 82.

  • Courtney

    Thank you so much Jennifer! Yes it did get moved to number 81. Thank you again!!
