Photo-Blogging: A 365-Day Project

Hello! Hisashiburi desu ne (long time, no see!) I admit my blogging has been quite lackluster these days, so I have pledged to be a much more active blogger, but I needed some inspiration. It becomes difficult, the longer one stays in a different country, to prioritize one's stories and experiences and offer them in a concise enough way to keep people's attention. It can also be exhausting to peruse through massive photo albums of friends and family, even if the photos are interesting. For these reasons, the 365 Project called out to me. Started in 2004, it is as simple as posting one photo every day for a year. This way, I can choose one photo and not be stuck uploading tons of them, and it will make for an interesting album one year from now. I will be (hopefully) able to recall the stories behind each photo, and it will be a great treasure to have. I wish I had started earlier, but hey, there's no time like the present! The link is:

I will start posting today, and I pledge to post photos only taken on the respective day. Safe for traveling places where I can't hook up my camera, or intensive surgery, I should be able to hook up and post every day. And so today, Thursday March 18, 2010, I begin my year-long photo journal that will give those back in Canada and here in Japan a glimpse of my daily life here. Oh, and as I am spending 4 days in Osaka and Kyoto beginning tomorrow, this album should get interesting very quickly! Come check out James' Project 365.
