2010 New Year’s Resolutions

So 2009 is almost over, and while I know I should have expected the year to end (as they always do), I’m somehow more surprised than usual.  Apparently, I’d gotten a little too comfortable with writing 2009 on things so it is now time to force me to change (or else scribble out a lot of dates).  If the past is any indicator, it will take me until June before I figure out what’s going on with regards to documenting the correct year.

With that said, I’m trying to actually make some New Year’s Resolutions this year.  You see, I’m on a roll from last year having successfully accomplished my single resolution to make no resolutions.  While it may not be a huge undertaking, it’s one which I took seriously and am proud to say I’ve generally succeeded.  I like to enjoy the successes in my life – no matter how small and insignificant they may seem.

So this year, I’m going to actually try to market Digital Notions.  If you’re read my previous article entitled Rookie Blogging Mistakes, you’ll soon realize this is one of my biggest hurdles I’m facing with the success of this site.  In an effort to do this, I’m going to be undertaking a huge task – posting at least one photo every day.

I’m not going to set any limits on the subject matter of these daily photos.  They may be simple snippets of my daily life.  They may be photos of which I’m particularly proud.  Or, they may be some experiments that either did or didn’t come out correctly.  Regardless, I’m hoping to see a progression throughout the year.  Overall, I’m trying to grow as a photographer.  We’ll see how it goes.

In addition to Photo A Day plan, I’m going to try to write more.  You see, as much as I enjoy photography, I also enjoy writing.  I plan to not only write more helpful articles for fellow bloggers (especially about the Photo A Day undertaking), but perhaps write some more creative pieces.  I don’t want topics to stray too far from the purpose of this site, but I do want this site to evolve into something that is uniquely me.

So there you have it!  If you have any ideas for topics to write about, or any ideas for daily photo themes, leave a comment and let me know!
