Challenges for Days - Wednesday's Challenges

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!

You are invited to join the team here.  Managing one day takes at most an hour to update the list. You will be joining a very friendly, international, team. To find out more, why not check out our Join the Team page. You'll see details of our latest team call here.
