    Hi everybody!

    How cool is Google Groups!

    As a brief introduction, my name is David and I am a university
    student from Melbourne, Australia. I am currently working on a
    personal project at www.1000words.net which invites visitors to share
    the memories, emotions or creative stories that are triggered by a
    photograph of personal significance. I hope to publish a new
    photoessay daily.

    However, I am in dire need of contributions! The site provides some
    idea of what the concept is about and perhaps will encourage people to
    contribute or read the photo essays. Feel free to contact me at the
    site with any queries, suggestions or comments. I look forward to
    hearing what people think of the project.

    Well, thanks for reading! If you could spread the word to anyone who
    might be interested in making a contribution or reading the
    photoessays, that would be particularly cool.

    Cheers,
    David

    How much are you paying people to write for you?

    Um well, what Zen wrote was probably a bit too strong. However,
    contributions are donated without a fee. This donation relates to
    permission to publish the essay and photograph on the website.
    Copyright over those materials would remain with the maker. In any
    case, I will not be gaining financially over this website.

    I have changed the project name to 'A Picture's Worth' (although still
    at http://www.1000words.net) since a concerning number of people have
    thought that 1000 words was the minimum requirement to make a
    contribution. Indeed, it is not. In fact, 1000 words is the maximum.
    What do you think of the name?

    Thanks for the encouragement and I invite you to keep contacting me at
    with questions, suggestions or advice. It would be
    great to receive some contributions. If you could spread the word to
    anyone you know who might be interested, that would be fantastic. The
    site is viewable (although a draft) and will start showing photoessays
    on the 1st of August.

    Thanks for your attention and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,
    David
