(You can\u00a0shoot\u00a0with a film camera, but note the suggested goal is to publish an image on your blog each\u00a0day. Alternatively,\u00a0film photographers are welcome to use the themes as inspiration, and all are free to\u00a0participate in a way that works for you.)<\/li>\n<li>The course tag\u00a0is <strong>photo101<\/strong>, which you can use to connect with fellow participants and see\u00a0their submissions in the <a href=\"https:\/\/wordpress.com\/tag\/photo101\/\" target=\"_blank\">Reader.<\/a><\/li>\n<li>If you shoot mainly from your iOS or Android phone or tablet, download the WordPress app (for <a href=\"https:\/\/itunes.apple.com\/us\/app\/wordpress\/id335703880?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\">iOS<\/a> | for <a href=\"https:\/\/play.google.com\/store\/apps\/details?id=org.wordpress.android\" target=\"_blank\">Android<\/a>) if you don&#8217;t already use it.\u00a0We&#8217;ll also watch the <strong><a href=\"https:\/\/wordpress.com\/tag\/wponthego\/\" target=\"_blank\">wponthego<\/a><\/strong> tag\u00a0for images\u00a0you post\u00a0from the app &#8212; we want to see your photography on the go!<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<h4>What to expect each day:<\/h4>\n<ul>\n<li>New assignments are published on <em><a href=\"http:\/\/dailypost.wordpress.com\" target=\"_blank\">The Daily Post<\/a>\u00a0<\/em>each weekday at 12AM GMT.<\/li>\n<li>Each assignment includes\u00a0a daily theme and tip to inspire you to take a picture and\u00a0publish it on your blog.

We believe strongly in this vision because when more people have access to powerful tools on the web, that in-turn empowers them to do great things and publish amazing content. We feel the same way when it comes to democratizing, well, democracy &#8212; and in just a few weeks, citizens across the United States will have a unique opportunity to flex their political muscle and vote in the 2014 Midterm Elections.<\/p>\n<p>For our part, we want to provide our US-based users a set of resources to help them make a smart, informed decision when it comes to who they will vote for. We also want to provide a toolkit so that they can get more information on where to vote, which issues are at stake and of course, after voting occurs, a way to show their pride and encourage others to go get out the vote.<\/p>\n<p>We&#8217;ve teamed up with the good folks from The Pew Charitable Trusts, who, along with Google, and election officials nationwide, have developed the <a href=\"http:\/\/www.pewtrusts.org\/VIP\">The Voting Information Project (VIP)<\/a>. Together, we&#8217;re offering cutting-edge tools that give voters access to the customized information they need to cast a ballot on or before Election Day. The Voting Information Project is offering free apps and tools that provide polling place locations and ballot information for the 2014 election across a range of technology platforms. The project provides official election information to voters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and voters can find answers to common questions such as \u201cWhere is my polling location?\u201d and \u201cWhat\u2019s on my ballot?\u201d through the convenience of their phone or by searching the web.<\/p>\n<p>The only way a set of resources will be effective is if they make it into the right hands, so if you&#8217;re eligible to vote in the US Midterm Elections, take advantage of these tools and share them with your readers.<\/p>\n<p>It&#8217;s super easy using the 
shortcode. Just create a new post or page and drop the shortcode in (<a href=\"https:\/\/wordpress.com\/post\/?text=
\">or click here to create a new draft with the embed prefilled<\/a>). If you want to customize the experience a bit more you can drop in code directly from the <a href=\"https:\/\/github.com\/votinginfoproject\/vip-embeddable-tool\/blob\/master\/README.md\">Voter Information Tool<\/a> with options like height, width, and colors and we\u2019ll convert it to a proper embed code.<\/p>\n<p>After you vote, either by mail, or in early voting, OR on Election Day, please embed the <b><i>I Voted<\/i><\/b> badge into your WordPress.com site or blog and share it with your audience, along with friends throughout your social network. Here&#8217;s how to install the <b><i>I Voted<\/i><\/b> badge:<\/p>\n<ol>\n<li>Go to your blog\u2019s dashboard.<\/li>\n<li>Look under the Appearance menu for the \u201cWidgets\u201d option.<\/li>\n<li>Locate the \u201cI Voted\u201d widget and drag it to the sidebar of your choosing.<\/li>\n<li>Give the widget a title (optional) and hit the save button. Your badge will now be displayed for all your readers to see.<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n<p>Voting is our most fundamental responsibility as citizens &#8212; without it, our American democracy wouldn\u2019t exist. WordPress.com is a platform that gives everyday people the ability to share their voice and we&#8217;re asking you to take advantage of this voice &#8212; by exercising your right to vote. We&#8217;re asking you for your help to spread the word, encourage participation and <b>get out the vote on November 4th, 2014<\/b>.<\/p>\n<p>If you have any questions, please let them in the comments and we&#8217;ll be sure you help wherever we can.

They walked away novelists.<\/p>\n<p>- <a href=\"http:\/\/nanowrimo.org\/about\" target=\"_blank\">NaNoWriMo 2013 at a Glance<\/a><\/p><\/blockquote>\n<p>Although the two events are separate, they share a history:\u00a0NaBloPoMo started in response to NaNoWriMo, when a group of bloggers who lacked the time or inclination to write a book, but loved the idea of a communal blogging challenge, coalesced. Both challenges now have their own vibrant communities of writers and bloggers who inspire and support one another.<\/p>\n<blockquote><p>If you wait until the Muse shows up and inspires you to write, you may end up writing nothing at all. Whereas if you\u2019re sitting there every day in November churning out your thoughts and photos and shaping them all into something readable, if even 33% of what you\u2019ve posted veers toward greatness, that\u2019s 10 great posts you came up with that you might not have otherwise.<\/p>\n<p>- <a href=\"http:\/\/www.blogher.com\/eden-kennedys-top-five-reasons-joining-novembers-nablopomo?wrap=blogher-topics\/blogging-social-media\/nablopomo&amp;crumb=113590\" target=\"_blank\">NaBloPoMo founder Eden Kennedy<\/a><\/p><\/blockquote>\n<p>Hundreds of thousands of writers and bloggers participate each year, making new friends and writing things they never thought they would.<\/p>\n<h3>How do I get involved?<\/h3>\n<p>Easy!
