In the beginning, there was a first post!

Which totally makes sense!

With the journal project coming together so nicely, it was high time it got its own little piece of the internet and so this blog was created!

So why has this project been dubbed "Snapshots of Service"?  It is all in how I have been trying to describe it to others.  Since each person only winds up with two entries (consisting of two pages each), it really is a snapshot of Peace Corps service at that point of time. There is no back-story like a a blog or run-of-the-mill journal, or even a resolution to a long term issue that may make its way into the journal's pages, just the snippets of information and decoration provided in those few pages.

As of right now, there are 17 people who have signed up for this project (and I am waiting on addresses and last names for a few of you.  Ah-hem *wink*)  That means another 8 more can join the party!  I am looking for people going to countries not listed on the home page sidebar already, for the sake of variety.  If you are interested and your country in already listed, go ahead and e-mail me anyway and if we don't get 8 more different countries found, or yours drops out (hoping this doesn't happen!), you will get bumped into place! If this doesn't happen, I encourage you to try and get one of these projects going amongst yourself and som other volunteers in your country! Maybe we will end up with a Snapshots Series on our hands!  If you decide you want to do this, contact me and I can get your stuff linked up here in this blog so that it is a one stop shop!  I am going to see if there is interest in my Ukraine 41 Group for such a project with some of the PCVs...

To participate in this project, I need you to e-mail the following information to me
 @ k i m b e r l e y r o s e p h o t o @ g m a i l . c o m   (no spaces, I just don't want to get random spam!):

  • First and Last Name
  • Country
  • Assignment
  • Departure Date (Staging)
  • Training Address (Then your Site address once you move to site!)
  • E-mail address you will be using during service
  • Any website you want your name linked to (if any).
Before e-mailing me, please be aware that shipping internationally can be pricey!  Luckily, you will only have to do so twice during service, so it should not cause too much of an inconvenience!
