Bookstagram Challenge | August 2017 #WishfulWonder Challenge


Hello happy readers and fellow bookworm friends. Have you chanced a glance at the calendar? If you have, you'll notice - oh my gosh - August is nearly here. What the what?? Where did 2017 go? On the upside, you all know what this means! It's time for the eighth edition of #WishfulWonder.

My friend Tressa (of Wishful Endings) and I are pleased to announce we have put together another Bookstagram challenge.

As we do every month, we extend our thanks to everyone who has joined our challenges. We're having so much fun browsing our tag, and appreciate your creativity and time. (If we haven't clicked that heart on your photos and/or commented, it's not because we won't, it's simply due to time restraints - summer always seems busy. BUT please know we enjoy browsing your photos, and sooner or later one or both of us will find them with that #WishfulWonder tag.)

Next up, as is my usual habit (you know I *have* to share some of these creative beauties, right??), below I'm spotlighting a few photos that I've loved from our July challenge.





(And a special thanks to Courtney for the suggestion we add #FridayBookFace to our challenges. So. Much. Fun. *ahem* Even though I didn't get a new photo taken for the day!)

But, I digress. Moving on. As usual, I'll indulge in my "spiel," which does make the attempt to tempt you to join us.

+ If you’re pressed for time to participate in daily challenges, first and foremost, while we love it when you do, there’s no rule that says you must post every day. (Not that you needed my permission to say this, but I thought I'd put this out there.)
+ If you think you can’t participate because of it being “too much work,” try taking a handful or several days’ worth of photos for an hour. (This is generally what I try to do, which is nice and I often find I have a little “stock pile” of Instagram photos as a result.)  
+ If you're looking to meet other Bookstagrammers (people in the book community on Instagram) and bloggers, or build your "brand" in the book community, joining a challenge is an excellent way to do this. 
+ If you don’t think our #WishfulWonder challenge looks like a good fit for you, there are TONS of challenges on Instagram. A brief #Bookstagram or some variation of a #BookChallenge hashtag search will show this. 
+ Best of all, the best thing about these challenge (well, aside from the people. And the books.) is the creative outlet. You develop your OWN style of photos, which is what makes everyone's account so unique! I've seen simplistic (in terms of prop use, etc.) photos that are stunning and I've seen more elaborate shots that compliment the book and suit the style of the bookstagrammer. Plus, if you're like me, and you love creative outlets, this is an excellent way to do this. 
+ Still not convinced? Go ahead and follow our #WishfulWonder tag on Instagram or Twitter to be inspired!

\\\\\ You're invited to join our August 2017 #WishfulWonder Challenge.
Hopefully everything is self explanatory, but if you have any questions about the prompts. We’d love to see your pictures, so be sure to tag us with the usual, #WishfulWonder hashtag. Also, feel free to share this.

We'd also LOVE your feedback on favorite prompts. Drop a comment down below.
