I have been very busy for the past two days, not doing work (though that's probably what I should have been doing) but reading blogs. I like following blogs but at this time of year - yes, the beginning - the blogoverse goes mental. There's all those people who are starting a new blog for a new year (ok, so I haven't gotten around to those yet); there are those joining in the memes of looking back and favourites of the past year etc; and there are those that have made resolutions to keep to their blog better (you know who you are).
I personally have never really been able to understand the whole New Year Resolutions idea - to me it's just a chance to make you feel like crap in a few weeks when you don't stick to the ridiculous, over-the-top resolutions you promised you would do (you know - go on a strict diet, be organised, generally be better). So I haven't made any New Year Resolutions but I am kind of bending the rules by undertaking the photo a day challenge. But I don't see this as a resolution, simply a chance to do something different and make myself more observant (ok, so that last bit is a bit resolutiony) but in fairness I feel that any time of year is as good as any other to start resolutions - if you're that type of person. The only reason I'm starting now is it's an easy date to remember but my point is - any date is good enough; don't always wait for the New Year, if you get the desire to do something during the year start it then and there (or else, it won't ever happen, believe me), don't put if off. I guess this is kind of a strange time to be posting this particular post but now is when it is in my mind simply from the sure quantity of blogs I have read over the past few days. Anyway, Happy New Year/New Decade/New You (if applicable).
