At the beginning of the year I had this idea of writing a blogpost every day this year. I didn’t mention this publicly or make a big deal out of it as I was doing it to see if I could challenge myself without having too much pressure from others. After all, my previous three attempts to take a picture every day of the year failed after just 17 days.
I managed to write 41 blogposts all the way up until the 10th of February which is about 30 posts longer than I expected. After that I sort of lost my drive and it stopped. Whilst I felt guilty initally I have realised that I am proud of what I have achieved. No great novel and nothing that is actually worthwhile, but for 41 days I managed to write something every day.
Since then I have written another 20 posts [21 with this one] every time I felt like it which brings the total number of posts up to 61. As today is the 122nd day of the year that means I have technically written a post every other day of the year and mostly even without trying.
My first post this year was a post about @SatScenes and how I managed to take at least one picture for everyone of the 53 Saturdays in 2011. I have missed the past two Saturdays due to not feeling very well and appear to have now lost all enthusiasm for it. Maybe I should remind myself on how much of a great reminder those pictures have been, even if they were just pictures of a cup of coffee.
