Blip 2000: My Last Blip
Well dear reader, the title is self explanatory: this is my last Blip.
“But why!?” you ask. Well, I shall explain, and thankfully not through the medium of interpretive dance…
A wise friend introduced me to Blipfoto back in 2011. Capturing and documenting one photo a day seemed like a fun but realistic challenge and what started as a few days quickly became a few weeks, months, and then a year (Blip birthdays come round so fast!)
And so I kept going onward - un jour, une photo…
During the past few months I’ve been lazy and I recently spent a few evenings back-blipping my photos from over the summer which I hadn’t uploaded and realised that another milestone was fast approaching.
But I also realised that I wasn’t giving my journal the same level of attention and enthusiasm that it used to receive.
I hate to say it but it's become something I feel I’m forcing myself to do out of habit, rather than something I want to do because I enjoy it.
Some of my favourite pictures have been ones I have posted as my Blipfoto entries but too many photos recently have been “emergency” blips taken on my phone on the way home or at the last minute because I needed something, anything, for that day.
It's photo dairy fatigue I guess, and now seems to be right time to retire.
Thank you for joining me for this visual adventure. We've been to many, many places and seen a
plethora Smörgåsbord of sights.
This, however, is where my current journey ends: Blip 2000.
P.S. I’ll update my info with links so you can follow me on Instagram or Flickr, if you so desire.
