Ever heard of the term Project 365? A lot of people, especially photography enthusiasts (take for example Dustin Diaz), have done this sort of project — they’d take one picture each day for 365 days. It sounds easy but it requires a lot of commitments, especially if you’re taking this project seriously. Project 365 is not only about motivating and pushing you to take good pictures every single day. It’s about being able to look back on your life through the pictures you took. Awesome, isn’t it?
Well, I am not a photographer, myself. But I decided to take this concept and incorporate it with what I could actually do. I wanted to be able to write at least one post each day for 1 full year. But what was my goal? What did I want to achieve from doing this in the first place? Well, I wanted to be grateful and feel thankful each day. I wanted to write something that made me happy every day, or any interesting stuff I learnt, achieved, or found. The rule was: this “stuff” or “something” must happen on the day I write the post! 🙂 So even though I felt so unhappy on that day, I HAD to find something that made me grateful and share it with the world.
So, without further ado, let me introduce you to my own newborn Project 365!
I started it on 21 February 2010. It’s been 2 weeks since I wrote my first post. So far, I enjoy doing it. And I hope that I won’t stop in the middle of the journey, even during my hectic schedule 🙂 . I treat this project as my “diary” (with many uninteresting posts, I must say!), but without any complains! If you didn’t notice, I actually used Tumblr, instead of WordPress for this project. I just wanted to try out using Tumblr (and I love it’s simplicity!); but I would still prefer using WordPress though 😀 .
Your blog’s good. When I have like this? Me..is newbie blog. By the way may I exchange link? ok. Thx
Sounds familiar.. 😐
Haha i used 2 try out that project, writing somethng that im grateful for, every single day. But 4 me it only lasted a week 😛
I have visited your blog project. So nice, mel. Good luck yaa.. 😉
4 days without any updates. I guess the project is in danger.. :-S
I also used to try this kind of project,! but not specifically photography project, I just want to make one artwork per day (no matter if it is photo, sketch, or even a painting), and I realize that this surely needs A LOT commitment! and I stopped in my first week… :(( sooo bad….
