Since starting this photo project, I have learned there are a lot of resources and fun websites.

Capture Your 365:  "Inspiration + ideas + support for your everyday photography."  Monthly Idea Lists are published, classes offered, and a community to help you with your photography.

ShutterCal:  ShutterCal is a free, calendar-based photography project where you can document your life and improve your photography skills at the same time.  You post one photo per day.  You can look at other's photos.  Here's my current daily photo:

Flickr:  I use the Flickr app to automatically send photos from my phone to Flickr.  With 1T free storage, there's plenty of room.  From any computer or device, I can access my photos.  It's a great backup for my photos and great access. 

Flickr has a lot more to offer than just a place to store your phohtos.  There are groups you can join.  One interesting group at Flickr is Squared Circle.  You take a photo of a circle and crop it in a square, showing all sides of the circle.  Warning:  once you start making these, it's hard to stop.  I enjoy looking for something round to take a photo of.  It's good practice on framing shots.  I am a member of this group, but also collect my "Squircles" in my Picasa Web album:


Picasa Web Albums:  Since I use Picasa (free photo organizing and editing software), it's very easy to use Picasa Web Albums to share my photos.

It's sometimes hard to edit all the photos I take down to one photo each day.  I put my other favorites that don't make it to the Daily Photo here:

The Essential Guide To Digital Photography:  This is a great, free eBook that's a quick read and full of great information.  It covers choosing a camera through taking great photos.  And for free, how can you beat that?
