I’ve been reading lots of different blogs lately, trying to explore the whole blogging “world” a little more and I found where there are these “Post-A-Day” challenges and “Weekly Photo Challenges” and I was really intrigued. I want to write more but I have no great ideas to write about. I found something called “Project 365” where people post about anything, they just do it every day for a year. I decided to start with something simple – a photo a day for a year (yes, I know that this year technically has 366 days).
I love taking pictures and I love music. So I thought about doing a post every day that combines photos and music, but I figured I would run out of ideas quickly if I had to take a picture a day that had something to do with music. I could do it, but it would be pretty boring – I don’t get out much! I only have 2 more hours to post until the day is over, but I actually do a have a music-themed picture that I can take…a tattoo on my foot.
I got this tattoo in October 2008. It was my first tattoo and I really don’t remember what made me want to get one in the first place. I do remember thinking about it for a while and trying to think of something unique and something that meant a lot to me. I love music so I wanted to get a tattoo that had something to do with that. Then I wanted it to have something to do with my husband. So I looked up a line of music to our song (Nobody Knows by Tony Rich Project) and gave my ideas of how I wanted it drawn to the tattoo artist. 45 minutes later I had my tattoo! It wasn’t particularly fun getting it, but it wasn’t too bad. And I still love it to this day.
Hopefully this “photo of the day” thing will make me get more creative about my picture-taking and allow me to write about it at the same time. I think it will be pretty interesting!
