Just a thought on 25-365

It occurred to me this morning that I actually posted today's Proj365 yesterday (the cat and the kid along with the flowers) so I have nothing for today.

Whew!

Three weeks into January and it's clear my little blog is taking on a different flavor in 2011 and I'm not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, I've never wanted Ivey Lane to be a "journal." That's not the style of writing that I dig and more importantly I find it boring in other people's blogs. I want to read content that has depth of thought, addresses a bigger issue, delves into a deeper topic than "here's what I had for lunch today" or my all time most annoying long litany of "ain't my kid cute?"

Which brings me to the other hand; combining Proj365, as best I can, with the way I like to write may be interesting, or at least to me. And since I really and truly write this blog for me, I think I'm going to try to stay with it and see where it goes. There could be a number of benefits. First, I'll write less each day but hopefully say more in total. The images make the blog itself more interesting. And I think I will become both a better photographer and better writer in the long run.

I'm sure there will be plenty of sexy stuff (Vince dubbed me the "nookie monster" this morning. hehe) as well as the usual life observations. I hope it continues to keep your interest. Let's see how it goes!
