A New Project

My blog turned a grand old age of 2 last week. I can’t believe I’ve actually kept it going for that long and, according to my word press stats, I’ve written over 350 posts. Wow. That’s a fair bit of waffling really isn’t it?

I never anticipated it would go on for so long. I thought my interest in it would just die out around the 6 month mark but It just sort of sucked me in. Completely! And here we are 2 years on and I still love it!

It’s introduced me to all sorts. New people, new friends, new perspectives. Without which I think I would have sunk as a new clueless mum. In those early and sometime dark times it became a massive support network for me.

One of the latest new things I’ve discovered through it is the wonderful world of photography. I’m still playing with my new camera and loving taking shots like this. Look at the blurriness. (I have no idea what the professional term is).

I have another new project brewing in my head at the moment. After a lot of thought and procrastination I have decided to take the step of turning my blog into an ebook. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while but not really had the courage, and sometimes motivation, to take the plunge. I’m planning on using some of my best posts and adding in some unwritten musings that have been sat in the back of my mind for a while. I hope people will read it.

I have about 10 people so far that say they would read it. So that’s good, right?

  1. The blur is called depth of field 🙂 it is an incredibly powerful tool and can make all the difference with a photo. The lower the aperture number the more the background will be out of focus, basically.

    Congrats on the blog birthday, it’s pretty cool. I love blogging but I’ve found the challenge now is finding the time to blog as the toddler takes up so much time and doesn’t nap any more!!

    Good job 🙂

  2. Blogging has definitely raised my creativity level big time and my photography has changed so much and hopefully improved since I started in 2008.
    Hope you find the time to create your ebook, such a great idea!

  3. Wow, that all sounds very exciting indeed! Similar to you, I thought that my love of blogging would die, like most other fads that I get hooked on for all of 5 minutes….a year on and I still love it! Well done for taking the plunge 🙂

  4. Good luck with your new project and practising your ‘bluriness’! LOL

  5. Im the same i dont know but i know that blurryness makes a good photo! my husbands allways going on about something called iso? just let me take a photo! Enjoy!!

  6. The blurriness is called depth of field chick, and you and your camera do it really well. It helps focus the attention on the subject of the composition. You can either have the foreground blurry or the background. I’m a big fan of this.
