Zero to Hero Challenge Day 28


Today’s assignment: Find the post that has received the most views, likes, or comments, and write a related follow-up post.

The challenge for day 28 is to build on a previous post. I checked my stats the post with the most views was the Day 3 post on what was on my mind when I began this blog. That post was made three weeks ago so I had more time to build up views. The day 2o post on creating a new page was not far behind it in views. But the post with the most feedback was just posted a few days ago.

The day 22 was to join a blogging event. I was behind and did not get the post up until after midnight on Monday morning. It is now 10:30 Wednesday night and that post has more like than any other from the challenge. So that’s what I’ll build on for tonight.

Recapping  the post.

I choose to join a photo challenge event. I joined the  “A word a week Photography challenge.” The host picks a random word and you create something based on that word.

Last week’s word was Yellow. I photograph toys, so I picked some of my Yellow skinned mini-figs.

Minions!

After reviewing the images I picked this one because it  looks like Bumblebee punched Wolverine and jungle boy.

Expanding on the post.

I really liked joining the word a week photo challenge. It has made me eager to try more challenges.  I want to try to shoot something for this week’s challenge as well. Still thinking on it. I have also found another weekly photo challenge that starts soon. I will shoot something for that and post it when the challenge begins.

Now I just need to make the time. My son got send home from daycare Tuesday. He had a cough and we already had an appointment for that afternoon. But the day care said he was too sick to be there so he came home. Turns out he has pneumonia. So he stayed home today but never napped. That’s why I’m writing this post so late. He’ll also be home tomorrow. If he naps I’ll shoot something for one of the challenges.

Bonus Picture

Here’s another image for Yellow challenge. I didn’t post it the other day due  to time constraints.  Here is jungle boy from LEGO minifigures series 7.

Zero to Hero Challenge Day so behind


Today’s assignment: Find a blogging event (try our Blog Event Listings) and throw your hat into the ring.

Days 22 challenge was to join a blogging event. I choose to join a photo challenge event. Weather in the teens and fighting off a cold kept inside. I joined the  “A word a week Photography challenge.” The host picks a random word and you create something based on that word.

Once a week I will dip into my old English Oxford dictionary and pick a word on the page it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre.

 

Last week’s word was Yellow. I photograph toys so I picked some of my Yellow skinned mini-figs.

The Minions are super popular and yellow. Here they stood still just long enough for me to snap a pic. They didn’t touch or break anything while I was looking.

minions_on_blue

I posed a group photo crossing few themes, Superheroes, Lego mini figures, minions and Transformers.  I clicked the shutter a couples times.  They figures fell down. I reset them and continued to shoot. After reviewing the images I picked this one because it  looks like Bumblebee punched Wolverine and jungle boy.

Robot Tober Day Fourteen


Today’s Robot Is Bumble Bee.

Robot Tober Day Thriteen


Yesterday’s Robot was  Generation 1 Huffer. Today toy is the Kreon version of Huffer. He’s from the series three KRE-O Micro changers. The Micro changers let you build either the robot or vehicle version of the characters. I like the grimace on his face. The torso paint is better than the Prowl Kreon.  When the Micro changers were released I said I liked the parts but wanted more painting details. Huffer has more details and I still love the helmets.

Both Figures together for comparison , 1984 and 2013 versions of Huffer.

Robot Tober Day Twelve


Today’s Robot Tober item is a Generation 1 Huffer. I never got a big Optimus Prime Semi truck when I was young. The character was not as cool as many but he was a big rig. And that was cool. He was mini-bot scale, which means even though he was a big rig he was smaller than the cars that were made on a larger scale.
