I'm not one for these 'daily' challenges, I find it all a little like 'the carrot & the stick thing' & tho I love carrots I'm not in the slightest bit motivated by a promise nor a threat. I tend to do things coz I want to.
It has been almost 12 months since I started the 'create everyday' challenge on Instagram. I have managed that easily … but really it was a no-brainer. I was never not going to be successful at that … anyone who prepares their own food every day, as I do, is automatically a winner.
No, this is to get me to use the blog/website more often.
I started & failed a 30 day writing challenge last month !
I was hoping it would get me to write everyday but nope, it was all over by day 9, oops …forgot !
I'd like to draw every day too. Which I tried & tho I'm better at that, I still seem to lose momentum after 3 to 4 weeks.
The most successful continual drawing entries I made was that 3 week diary of Nico … that was fun & easy because Nico was the subject & I enjoyed that immensely …
This morning I was contemplating my IG feed.
It's come to be my journal & I'm happy for it to be so. I can't be arsed using it as a marketing tool. I'm useless at that & honestly, it bores the crap outta me to be continually posting image after image of my own stuff that I'm trying to sell. I don't follow people who do that either because I find it tedious unless I'm genuinely interested in what they're making & they show me how they do it.
So anyway long story short … I take photos everyday for IG. My whole life I've wanted to keep a journal. I have a constant dialogue going on inside my head. I make stuff everyday. I photograph stuff everyday. Not all of it goes on IG. It can go here instead.
This will ONLY work if I can do it easily from my phone !
I'll try it for a month … see how I get on … wish me luck.
