An exile from the west of Scotland I've been living as an incomer for the past 40 years in Fife. Working in Edinburgh didn't damaged me too much, but now I'm retired they can't touch me any more.

730 consecutive blips and I'm still here, although flagging a little. My atitude to Facebook and Twitter has become entrenched. Blipfoto is more than enough to be going on with. Can I continue to find anything remotely interesting to photograph on a daily basis? Based on the evidence in my journal I'd say no. Check back next April to find out if I'm right.

1095 consecutive blips reached and I've definitely exhausted the desire to continue blipping every day. I'm continuing to ignore Facebook and Twitter. I can't imagine they are bothered about that. As I am now not blipping every day it will be some time before I reach another milestone. It feels rather liberating I have to say.

I'm sure I'll get over that eventually. Facebook and Twitter are still being ignored by me and they have kindly reciprocated. Onwards now to five years worth of blips if I can last that long.

Five years worth of blips reached but as the gaps appear between blips it's taking longer to achieve. This begs the question – will I live long enough to get awarded a red camera, and will I even care by then...?
