So for those of you wondering what this is or haven't seen this kind of post, #BlogFlashDaily is a image prompted post that started as a one month topic image post where you blogged daily for that whole month. Now it's a daily thing, but not only limited to one month. For more details head over to author Terri Giuliao Long's blog.
I'm not sure if I'm actually going to post this every day or when I have inspiration, but it's a post that is supposed to get you writing. The other reason I want to start posting some of these type posts is mainly it's something a bit different on the blog and it's up to you what you write, be it a story or just a few lines about the image.
Rules: (These came straight from the hosting blog)
#BlogFlashDaily posts are visual writing prompts provided by Terri Giuliano Long each weekday. Unlike the full month of flash blogging, this gives you the opportunity to dip in and out, whenever you have time, feel like it, or just if the inspiration happens to hit you. There are no requirements, no word limits, no restrictions. This is all about embracing the main concepts of #Blogflash: creativity and fun.

So today's prompt is Canisters, at first I wasn't sure what I wanted to say about canisters, of all things for the first prompt to be, but then I got to thinking about my canisters that are currently in my kitchen and what I use them for. Right now I have four canisters sitting on my kitchen counter. Each of them contain something for baking or frying. One is flour, it's the largest of the four and I use it a lot. I on occasion have had to douse a grease fire with it, it's the reason it sits right next to my stove. The other three contain; brown sugar, sugar, and Italian bread crumbs.
I wasn't sure how I would connect this to books or the blog or even if I wanted to connect it. For this post is mainly just to write. In my mind I'm thinking this post should be so I can share other things with you, to chat about my life or the ordinary things in my life like the canisters on my kitchen counter. I never really noticed how much I use those four little canisters in my life.
Honestly, those four canisters are something that I take for granted. They're always there and they always have what I need in them, it's kind of like this blog. It's always there and it's always here when I'm ready to come back and post something. The catch is, will my readers always be around? That's something I've been a bit worried about, I've taken a few weeks off here and there and I'm always worried when I come back that no one will be there to read my posts. Not that it would make me stop posting, but still makes me think. It hasn't happened yet and for that I'm really grateful and happy that you all enjoy what I write about here on Ali's Bookshelf.
Wow, so a picture of canisters just made me confess something that I worry about here on the blog. I knew I was going to like this post.
