In just a few short hours, another year will close and a new year will open and breathe new life into us…..bringing with it new adventures, experiences, and memories to blog about. But, before I begin to write about all the exciting topics I know 2015 will inspire me to write about, I thought I might take a look back at what I wrote about in 2014.
It was an active blog year — 73 posts, including this one, which, technically, should be counted as one of the topics I wrote about in 2014. As I skimmed through the year’s blog posts, I discovered something that made me stop and think……I really got into going out and deliberately looking for things to take photos of – mainly because of the Sunday Stills Challenge I participated in and the Wordless Wednesday posts I challenged myself to do. In doing those posts, I found that I really enjoy taking photos and working on making my composition and framing better – just because I use my iPhone to take the pictures doesn’t mean they can’t be GOOD photos!!! Well, about mid year, I stopped both types of posts…..the SS Challenge because the host of that blog ran into technical problems and stopped hosting it for a while and I never started back up when he did……the Wordless Wednesday posts because I tried to make it a challenge other bloggers might join in on, but that made it too “forced” and took all the fun out of it. Regardless of my reasons, I stopped and so did the joy I got from going out and looking for reasons to take photos! So…..I think I am going to get back into that in 2015 – maybe not so structured in an every week sense, but definitely more often and definitely just because “I” want to do it – if I particularly like the Sunday Stills topic, I’ll do that one……if I’m out and about on a Wednesday, you may see a Wordless Wednesday……and, I think I just might put my own spin on a concept I like on a friend’s blog – his is “Nilly Willy Friday” – think mine might be “Mismatched Monday” – the point is to post a few photos that have nothing in common except that they were all taken on the same day by me! We’ll see how it goes and what I might bring you all to enjoy!!!
