I'm going to refrain from making extensive excuses or apologies or dramatic explanations, but I am going to say that I'm backing off from my post-a-day plan for the year. A few days ago I mentioned that phrase I read in a magazine article about living simply - "discretionary burden" - those obligations we burden ourselves with that have little or no consequence in the grand scheme.
For me, blogging only works when I have something to say. I don't always, and trying to force it when I don't just makes me feel stressed out and mediocre, which is completely not why I write here. I think I take decent pictures, but to always be ready with one that captures the day also adds a bit too much pressure to the candidness of daily picture taking.
I keep daily journals off-line; I worry not about forgetting a day. I fully plan to continue more frequent posting in general - 3 times a week, a least, I hope. But I refuse to let it stress me out.
Thanks for understanding :)
