We have reached May 31 and the end of my experiment of blogging for a month. I think I missed 2 days of posts during the month. I didn't envision myself missing any, but a few things got in the way here and there. One thing I haven't mentioned over the last month is that I am currently enrolled in school. It's all online, but it's a lot of writing. A LOT. My assignments are due on Monday nights. I was a week into this blogging experiment when I fully realized I didn't think about all the other writing I had to do outside of blog posts and eventually something had to give for a few a days.
Most of my photos have been from unsplash.com - this is an amazing website where you can search endlessly forever for free gorgeous high-resolution photos. You can do what you want with these photos. I have used some in the past for artwork in my home and office as well.
I follow someone online who is blogging for 100 days. I don't know how she's still going at this point.
I realize I do still enjoy writing and sharing about the random things that interest me. I used to write "Best of" posts each month where I shared my favorite photos and adventures from the month. I may bring these back. They encourage me to practice my photography skills which I haven't done for over 2 years.
I am on this journey of simplifying anything and anywhere I can. I think I'll be popping in here and sharing when I have a new tip or trick. I'm going to continue to work on my "deal with it" items as I have a backlog of over 2 years of things I haven't dealt with while I navigated new jobs and crazy work schedules. This is a good space to help hold myself accountable to the things I need to get done.
Thanks for following along this month, the likes, the comments, and the conversations I've had on twitter with a few of you. It's been great to reconnect with some online friends with similar interests too.
