My first ever reblog, but I wanted to share a feature on Discover that I really enjoyed – Cheri Lucas Rowlands’ interview with Cee Neuer. Cee’s challenges add so much to the fun of blogging. If you haven’t visited her site yet, you’re missing out.
By nature, blogging is communal — we write publicly and interact with readers. Some people, like Cee Neuner at Cee’s Photography, have built communities around their sites. Cee hosts weekly photo challenges that not only encourage people to practice their shooting skills — they provide a welcoming space for bloggers around the world to connect. Here, Cee talks about her love for photography and what motivated her to launch challenges on her site.
What is your philosophy around photography?
Cee with her camera
I am a visual person, so being behind a camera and looking for beauty and color is in my DNA. I take photos because I enjoy it. The world comes alive. I love looking through my viewfinder: I see life so much clearer than I do without the lens. I am fortunate as I have a natural ability for composition, and that makes taking photos so…

Susan, thanks for much for reblogging Cheri’s article. I’m honored. So glad you like my challenges, I’m so happy you are a part of my community. 😀
If I may, Cee, I’d like to thank-you for being there when I first started blogging, almost three years ago. Your challenges were my first opportunity to start developing photographic skills in a fun way. I still remember the rule of thirds. I almost always use that understanding when I crop my photos. As you said, once you know the rules, then you can break them. You have created am amazing blogging community. Cheers! ❤
Hi Olga – you left this comment on my blog rather than Cee’s, but as you replied to her comment, my fingers are crossed that she’ll have seen it. 🙂
Thanks for letting me know, Susan. I thought if I replied to her comment directly that it would get to her. Good to know. 🙂
I imagine she’s getting a few more comments than she usually does!
Thanks for this, Susan. The blog world is still mysterious to me so it was good to read her thoughts on blog and community.
People who don’t blog might doubt that you become part of a community, but that’s certainly how I’d describe it.
Thanks for this Susan. I’d come across Cee of course – she sometimes reads my posts, and I hers – but having read the interview I’ve subscribed to her challenges. I don’t think I’ll always do them (so much to do, so little time), but they’re a helpful inspiration, to be sure.
I don’t do them all either, but I enjoy seeing entries for them in my Reader. Cee has a lot of challenges, especially if you include her Flower of the Day, which I keep forgetting to link into 🙂
