Because I don’t have enough blogs

August 30, 2010

During the year I lived in Korea, Lauren and I wanted a way to keep in touch beyond email and Skype. The solution: 3 p.m. on Sunday, a weekly photo blog that documented exactly where we were at–yep, you guessed it–3 p.m. on Sunday.

It was fun seeing the similarities and differences between our photos. Some weeks, they were worlds apart.

At other times, the unplanned similarities were too obvious to ignore.

I’ll leave you to guess which is Seoul and which is Silver Spring. 😉

Now, Lauren has moved to New York City and I’m permanently back in the DC-area. What better time to start up a new photo blog?

Beginning today, we’ll be blogging weekly at Around the Corner. Each week, we choose a different theme and take a picture that’s a variation on that theme.

We’re both creative people so this is a fun way to stay in-touch, challenge ourselves and hopefully keep those much-needed creative juices flowing. Be sure to check it out!

How do you stay in touch with friends across long distances?

    What a fun idea!

    I’m very thankful to Facebook for making keeping in touch with people around the world so easy 🙂

    Haha I love all the pictures and the new blog idea. I stay in touch with my friends from far away but not in nearly as creative ways as you. I use e-mail, facebook, skype and the phone 🙂

    I love this idea! I’m a big old school, ink to 3 pages of paper, letter writer. My good friend and I would send weekly letters to each other during college. It was so nice to get actual mail!

      Aw, I love that you write ‘real’ letters. There’s definitely something awesome about getting mail!

    I absolutely love the idea of blogging with a long-distance friend. Such a clever idea!
