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.
Hey, I take a random photo a day of things happening in life and apparently the end of January was ugly af out there! But that’s part of winter.
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?
The 2017 edition of the 365 Day Project is up! Before the end of January 2018… I’m rather proud of myself.
Throwback to last year’s photo on the same subject – this whole photo-a-day business sure is good for random memories!
Sometimes I mess up and forget a photo. This was such a day, but hey, I did get a nice postcard from @mlle-anglo and it was lovely!
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.
I guess the important thing on this day, November 20th, was that I decided to finally take jumping the ship from LJ seriously.
At this stage I think one could map the ups and downs of my mental state through the times I forget to take any kind of photo on a given day.
Another case of a forgotten photo! I did send myself a reminder… which can be seen here, but that clearly did not work (I took this photo on the 12th).
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!
Did I ever mention that I finally uploaded and sorted everything for the 365 Day Project for 2015? Because it’s all finally online – here.
Sometimes I fail. But you know who didn’t fail? Iceland! Their victory over England just made me so happy and I’ll be cheering for them when they’ll be playing against France. I mean, have you seen their faces? They’re always so happy to win things and their fans are always so happy and I want their Euro adventures to go on… and I really should go to Iceland soon.
I was doing so good for so many years and nowt it’s the second time this year I forgot to take a photo. At least each time I remembered the day after.
The original photo-a-day photo for that day was that of the toilet paper roll I keep at my desk now because tissues are so last year. Yep, sometimes I am at the height of professionalism.
