A Blog a Day

I enjoy reading blogs by ambitious people who decide to do something everyday or so much in a year. For example, in this blog she is reading 365 books in 365 days. I can't even imagine how that could be possible. Then, my newest favorite photographer, blogs here, a photograph a day taken and edited with his Android phone to show that being a great photographer isn't just about having a great camera. Boy does he prove that too. Then, of course, there was the blog made famous by the movie "Julie and Julia", where another ambitious soul decided to cook every recipe in Julia Childs famous cookbook in one year and blog about it.

I love that kind of thing. I've often wondered if there would be something I could focus on for a period and blog about. My problem is that I have so many things I am interested in that it is hard to narrow it down. Plus, I get bored rather quickly and move on to something new. What does that say about me? Hmmmmmmm. I would love to do a photograph a day as that would get me to use my camera more. I am also interested in cooking and making healthy food that is also delicious. I could blog about the new recipes that I try. That would be more of a once a week thing than every day (who knows though, wouldn't daily be cool?).

I love love love to read. But, it takes me awhile to finish any book as I usually only read a few minutes before I fall asleep.

So, what should I focus on and blog about? Maybe a separate blog dedicated to that focus so this one can remain about my family's comings and goings. Maybe a blog about finishing all of my unfinished projects. I'm sure that is also telling quite a bit about me. I'm going to think on it. I may not be able to pull off a blog a day, but maybe a blog a week? That would work too and probably be more realistic with how I work.

My life has really picked up the pace lately, so it's not like I really need a new project right now. I just think it would be fun.

I leave you with some pictures from my cousin's Mad Hatter Tea birthday party.


  1. I think you should pick a new thing every week or every month! It would be cool to be able to switch gears after a period of intense focus on one thing. And more well-rounded, too. So, a month of photography, then a month of cooking, then a month of papercraft, then a month of kids' activities, a month of many themes to choose from!

  2. I like Lauren's idea. Or maybe just blog about *whatever* the productive/learning thing you did that day was - the goal just being to accomplish something new daily?... Nice goal to think about.

  3. I like these ideas very much. Thanks.
