Okay, I confess: I had a different post in mind for today. But, it has been such a looooonnggg day. And, I just don't have the time nor energy to blog what I had in mind right now. In fact, I'm so tired, I'm tempted just to go to bed. These 4 to 5 hours sleeping pattern can't be good for me.
But then, it's the 31st of the month and I've come sooo close. So yeah, I thought that instead of giving up on my 'daily' resolution, I decided just to give this a go anyway.
Yes, DAILY. Something I've never done ever before. I've been blogging for almost 10 years now (yes, I know, it wasn't called blogging back then...) but I don't think I've ever blogged every single day for a whole month.
But, January 2008 changed that. Since I'm trying to live out my word of the year: "Today"... I thought I'd challenge myself to blog every single day here in this blog for the whole year. I never really said that out loud until now - because I'm scared that it might all just wear me out. Plus, I was afraid that it might overwhelm my readers/subscribers here. And besides, what do I say if I don't meet my target?
Ah, well... We'll see. For now, daily blogging it is.
Since we're on the topic of dailies... I thought I'd say something about the photo that you see in this post. It's actually my Day 31 photo for the 365 (+1) Days Project. Yes, I've managed to take photos everyday for the whole month of January. Yay. And, I'm really enjoying the process.
Anyway, the iShai photo was inspired by all the Apple/Mac talk that I've been having the last week or so... and 'meeting' iHanna after she left a couple of comments on this blog. If you're interested, I posted more thoughts about it on Flickr.
So yeah, 31 days down, 334 to go (+1).
Who was it that said something like, "It takes 30 days to develop a habit"? Well, if that's the case, then I should have been able to develop a blogging and photography habit.
BTW, Congrats, Kari for being the Top Commentator of the Month (for January 2008). I believe you had a total of 24 comments. Thank you so much!
