Through the process, I’ve realized that there is only so much one person can do, and the daily posts brought me to a very stressed out level on some days, and they also probably forced me to put up some less-than-stellar posts in the process.
I guess I’m saying that I’m not going to even pretend I’m doing them anymore? Ah, relief.
They were quite good though in the beginning, and I feel as though my reach through my blog grew quite a bit because of the daily posts. At other times, I was worried that posting so often just made readers feel overwhelmed. The main good thing that came from this whole process however: my ability to take better photos.
When I was in Queensland, part of the trip involved taking photos of the group and then sharing them in a slideshow over dinner on the final night. Another girl in my group turned to me and said, “You win.”
What she meant was that my photos looked quite good, and I know that being able to pose with a smile on command and have it translate well into a photograph was greatly improved by attempting the daily photo project. Win!
But things are changing, and I couldn’t keep up. Now, I’m preparing to head overseas for a month in a place that is fairly remote. Things are starting to go up and up on my Her Packing List site, which is apparent in the fact I am now working with Heather on the project (check out some of her posts from the previous month). Things are also changing over at my WhyGo Australia project.
The list goes on. Besides change, I’m trying to make plans for the future… for upcoming travels in April 2012, for future writing projects (ebooks and a book) and future websites (one is already in the works).
I’m very sad that I couldn’t keep up. At this point, though, there’s nothing I can really do except embrace the change and focus on what’s next.
Like tomorrow – my tweetup in a hot air balloon!
Do you have any new projects or future goals you are working on reaching at the moment? How do you deal with little failures or disappointments along the way?
