OK. its 1st August which marks7 months of non-stop blogging and I am afraid that that I have reached my limit as far as blogging every day is concerned. I have admitted defeat, thrown in the towel and removed the post-a-day badge from the blog. In the end it was just too much of a commitment and I was running out of pictures to post and things to say.
Writing the blog every day has become too much of a chore and a burden; furthermore, looking at the stats, fewer and fewer people are reading it. Familiarity breeds contempt, or at the very least waning interest.
It has been suggested that my time may be better served by posting less frequently and when I have something to say and I honestly think that is probably the best way to go; certainly it will free more time to concentrate on doing something more constructive with the photography such as has been achieved via Society6.
This is categorically NOT the end of the blog, just the end of the post-a-day 2011 experiment. In a couple of weeks time I will be off to Northumberland again (one of the other reasons for calling it a day now) and will no doubt come back with some great new pictures. But in the meantime thanks for sticking with me thus far. Hopefully, less will mean more going forward.
