I usually try to have a two week buffer in terms of scheduled entries but I was just a mess before going on holiday and absolutely did not feel like working on this while on holiday… so here we are. I had to catch up and back post almost two weeks of entries but now we’re back on schedule. I’ll try to go back to that two week buffer soon enough.
Yikes! I haven’t post-processed photos or scheduled posts for what feels like ages. Now I only have one week of buffer… but let’s try and bring it back to at least three weeks by the time I go on holiday.
A bit of behind the scenes of this 365 Day Project posting (5th? 6th? edition) – I’ve finally managed to catch up with posting exactly one month after the photo was taken. I usually only put two photos maximum per post, personal choice and also helps with motivation to cut things into smaller chunks, and all the holiday photos always throw things out of whack. But now it’s all a month apart, which means I have one month of buffer in case real life gets crazy or I go on holiday.
More shop talk – I’ve finally managed to catch up, November 10th posted on December 10th! Only one scheduled post per day from now on… until next time something exciting happens, which hopefully won’t be too soon, I like having a predictable and quiet life.
Because I’ll be on holiday this weekend and the weekend after that, I’m hoping to post-process and schedule three weeks’ worth of photos. So far, I’ve done two days. Oh, and then I should upload and sort everything on Flickr.
I probably shouldn’t take advice from reddit but I saw a post about how you get a lot of things done in life done through discipline because motivation is not always there and won’t help you. This weekly post scheduling is brought to you by discipline because even coffee can’t motivate me this morning.
I’m typing this up almost two weeks in advance because I usually schedule all posts on Sunday morning for the upcoming week but next Sunday I’ll be on holiday and I don’t want to take my laptop with me. Who am I turning into?
What’s great about taking a photo-a-day (and then posting it about a month later) is that it forces me to try and remember why I took the photo. Here I wanted to highlight that it was really the first day when it felt almost too hot for spring – hence the short sleeves, etc.
Let me pull the curtain away for a bit – in case it wasn’t clear from the photos themselves, many of my photos these days are not planned and are rushed jobs… and they often require me to find a spot with a bit of light. In my flat it’s not that easy so often the couch in the living room will be involved, even if it is a mess on most days.
Time to get into this thing because my photo backlog is getting longer and longer each day! So here we are, back with September 2nd where I once again proved that sometimes I am a creative adult – cereal out of tupperware for dinner is the best.
In case it wasn’t evident – I am taking a bit of a break. It started because I thought I would post stuff during my holidays and that did not happen (mainly because holidays can get busy sometimes), and it continued because I’m starting to think I should rethink my posting schedule and habits. I usually edit/post stuff at 6:30am and I simply no longer want to do that. Maybe I’ll switch to editing/posting once a week and schedule ahead for the whole week. Who knows!
