Week #3 January 14 - January 21, 2013
Project 52 (3/52)
Project 52 (3/52)
The week that was...
Well, it took me 645 days to get 'er done. Yea "Procrastination" is thy name. It arrived on my front door step last week. Mega thanks to my cute "Man in Brown" for the special delivery. My first 365 days of blogging. In print. Bound. For prosperity AND...my coffee table. To prove to future generations of 'moi' that I actually did something. Boo-yah. Just between us, gotta tell ya I'm kinda proud of myself. That SHOULD happen more often, but it's a rare commodity for moi. There is just something about seeing a year's worth of
It's kinda cool to go back and look at a year in my life. And I discovered a few things...
1. That WOW did my photography improve from day #1 til day #365. Kinda shocked to see the transformation laid out in front of me. It made me cringe a bit to see some of those first photographs that I thought were "oh so good". They weren't. Sort of like that crazy colored Muu-Muu I bought in Hawaii that I thought would be oh so chic to lounge around in. Until I realized I looked more like a Moo-Moo in it.
2. I also discovered that I kinda cracked myself up a few times with what I wrote. Seriously, I have no idea why my "Things" don't find me freakin' hilarious all the time. Disclaimer: except for when I was wearing my Moo-Moo.
3. To my chagrin, I also shuddered at a few crap-ola posts that I should've just gone to the gym instead of sitting behind the computer wasting time on. That's okay tho, made me come to the conclusion to try to be more discerning this year.
If any of you bloggers are considering a similar project I would highly recommend Blurb. I am in no way, shape, or form being compensated for this ringing endorsement (altho...I'd gladly accept it). The quality of the photographs is fantastic, and the program they utilize for converting blogs to books is easy to navigate. Okay, maybe not easy AT FIRST...but it became real easy once I stopped hyper-ventilating.
Since I started my blog in July 2011, I'm already half way thru year #2 of blogging. Which means, "The Return of...You'll Shoot You're Eye Out" will be gathering dust on my coffee table before I know it. Boo-yah again.
