New photo blog

I’ve decided to do Project 365 this year where you take one photo a day.

As you know, I do like baby steps πŸ˜‰

I’ve already posted my first 9 days and there are some organising pics but if you do want to subscribe and you only want to see the organising pics, then click on the word organising under LABELS.

Here’s the new blog – http://marcia-project365.blogspot.com

Is anyone else doing this photo project?

  1. this is interesting. i’d be following your photo blog and hopefully, be able to do the same even for just 30 days.

  2. Hi Marcia,

    What a neat idea. I had not heard of Project 365 before. I look forward to seeing your project grow over the year. I admire you for committing to something like this!

    You might find this funny… I just did a search fpr project 365, and found this: http://project-365.co.uk/
    An unemployed man (named Jamie) planned to do a different job each day for 365 days. It would appear the project is abandoned, as there have not been anymore updates since day 35 (last July). I guess he lost the “6” somewhere along the way, and it became Project 35. LOL

    Have fun with your photos (and those little babies of yours). : )

  3. I do! I’m a digital scrapbooker and this is a big hit in the community! I tried last year but between breaking my camera on January 10th and lack of motivation/inspiration, I only got about 160 pics over 2009. I’m having help this year, though, check my blog post here for some helpful links: http://chloefrance.blogspot.com/2010/01/project-365.html

      Chloe, let’s do this together. I’m only uploading once a week so I don’t put too much pressure on myself.

  4. It’s a great project; good luck! As the co-author of a city daily photo blog, I know that it’s a lot harder than it seems to post a photo every single day. πŸ˜‰ My husband and I have been doing it since March 2007, and although our photos are primarily intended to showcase our city, they’ve also become a record of our own lives.

    It’s fantastic to think that we have this permanent visual journal of all the things we’ve seen and done together. And it’s only by keeping a DAILY record that you start to realise just how much living you’re managing to squeeze in. πŸ™‚

      Kerry-Anne, I had a look at your blog – great pictures! I have really really low expectations – I have no theme, just any old pics I take πŸ™‚

  5. This is an interesting concept.

  6. First, I have to share a confession – I used to be a comprehensive perfectionist. I was absolutely forced into “recovery” when I became a parent. The journey became deeper when I became a single parent. Today I don’t consider myself a perfectionist anymore, but I do admit to discovering pockets of my old self in odd places. Reading this blog helped me discover one more.

    I love photography and have a near-professional set-up, so my first reaction to taking a picture a day was – how could I possibly lug that stuff around every day? Then I realized that my old perfectionist self was rearing its ugly little head again. My phone takes pictures – not the kind I want to make 14″ x 20″ prints of, but certainly good enough to post in a journal project.

    So now I’m willing to tackle it – I think it is a fabulous idea and now that I have accepted my phone as all I need and Marcia’s strategy of posting once per week so as not to overwhelm – I’m in for Project 353 (i.e., 365 minus 12)! I’ll post a URL to the journal when I upload my first batch this weekend.

      Belinda, that’s awesome, thanks SO much for sharing. I struggle with those same tendencies and at first I also thought I couldn’t do it because where to find the time for posting daily?

      Well, to post my first 9 photos took me an hour – that included the prettying up the sidebars of the blog, so as I get more proficient, it’ll get faster πŸ™‚

      I can’t wait to get your URL to have a look.

  7. I was searching for digital photography when I found your site. Great post. Thank You.
