It's the Skywatch anniversary!
We're turning 3! A good Toddler age.
First and foremost - thank all of you for being part of the Skywatch
community every week, showing us the beauty of the skies over your heads.
And here is how it all came to be:
It was created by Dot in 2007:
I thought on it for days and finally decided on the sky. I was hoping this would be a way for bloggers to interact and share through their pictures and comments. I couldn't think of what to name the meme so I asked a friend and she said "Sky Watch".
I asked her if she thought anyone would participate and she said she would but she didn't know about any one else. I visited and commented on every blog that participated in Sky Watch.
Since I had to go visit family in another state frequently and I asked Tom Wiggers if he 'd like to do Sky Watch while I was gone. He did and seemed to enjoy it so much that I felt bad about asking for it back. so I let him have it. I don't think I could have kept up with it on my own as the visitors were increasing each week. I'm glad that the Sky Watch Team has kept the meme going.
Next came Tom, and during his tenure the already successful Skywatch meme doubled in participants. Unfortunately health problems forced him to step it down a notch and so
he handed it over to Klaus.
Here's Tom's contribution.
After taking over in 2008 the idea of having a team looking out for the participants
and the Skywatch Meme was born.
Skywatch what it is today, averaging 300 -400 participants every week.
Here's the 1st image after officially taking over from Tom.
