Doing the SoFoBoMo ’09

After due consideration I’ve signed up for the SoFoBoMo ’09 photo book project.
SoFoBoMo (Solo Photo Book Month) is where photographers “volunteer” to create a real physical photo book, from start to finish, in a months (31 days) time, or less. This book doesn’t have to be printed it can be in a digital file format, such as a PDF file. It must contain at least 35 photos, all taken within the designated fuzzy month.
Each photographer decides on their own fuzzy month, 31 days, with the start and end dates between May 1, 2009 and June 30, 2009. In other words, if you start on May 1, your month ends on June 1. If you start on May 15, your month ends on June 15.
It’s all based upon a trust system and if you cheat you’ll be cheating yourself. The reward is to challenge yourself.
To be honest, I hesitated to sign up and I’m not sure if I’m excited about it. Perhaps that excitement will come as the date draws closer. I haven’t gotten as far as deciding on a theme for my project/book but I’m sure it will come to me.
From the early number of signups I’m expecting heavy participation. Should be interesting.
