Do a blog entry that's only photos NO WORDS or TEXT of any kind except for the title (no cheating don't make that title 200 words). You could just post a few photos you've taken recently and not shared, or you might like to post a whole bunch of random photos from you lastest adventure and let us guess what you are doing or where you are. Or perhaps you want to make one of those mosaics I've seen on blogs recently. Have fun with this one!
