A NSD Confession

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! I have a confession to make...

I'm stopping my Photo-a-Day project for this year. Here's why and what I've learned this far:

Reconsider committing to a PAD project if:

1) you have no kids, no pets, few friends, and are not travelling because you are saving up money for a house. You will quickly become tired of taking pictures of your pedicure and the inside of your refrigerator.

2) your spouse adamantly refuses to be photographed. It's not worth a year of marital dissonance.

3) your spouse, when reluctantly photographed, adamantly refuses to have those photos posted to your blog, where you are posting all of your other PADs. See #2.

4) you can not photograph your place of employment for fear of accidentally blogging a photo confidential information. You can also not photograph your spouse's place of employment, which, more often than not, is your living room, for the same reason.

5) you can not bring photographic equipment into your gym, which is the only other place you frequent besides home and work, see #1-4.

I totally plan to try this project again, at some future date. It is an awesome project and an amazing learning experience. However, for now I think I may boil it down to PAW; photo-a-week, at least for the rest of the year.

For those of you who are trying your own PAD project, how's it going?

Well, consider I work at home also, it's going! Every now and then something "new" comes up! like a new dryer. (woo hoo) ;-)

I'm sorry you've dropped the project. I enjoyed seeing your pics and your project with them.
