I always think that as soon I go through and edit a few pictures, I'll load them onto the blog and write something. But I'm so backlogged on pictures that this simple task can seem overwhelming. I'm almost certain I won't have time to really devote to the pictures until the kids are in college. So if I'm going to keep up the blog, I need to come up with a better system.
I thought about opening a screen of thumbnails, having the kids close their eyes, spin around, and then point to a picture. Kind of like a "pin the tail on the donkey" concept, but without the pinning or the donkey. I would then upload whichever pictures the kids pointed to and write the first thing that came to mind about them. Might do that yet.
I was also thinking about a "picture of the day" concept, where I would force myself to upload one picture a day to the blog no matter what. That might have to wait until next Lent.
The reason I take so many pictures: I took an Intro to Digital Photography class last fall, and now I know generally what the buttons do on my camera (i.e., enough to be dangerous), but I do not know enough to take consistently good pictures. I can get a halfway decent picture every 75 or so pictures I take, and that one good picture somehow motivates me to keep shooting and trying. I'm taking another class with Heather starting next week. I hope the class helps with my picture quality, but whether it does or not, I have little doubt that it will result in even more pictures that need to be dealt with.
Okay, to summarize, I need to work on my photography skills, my photo management skills, my organizational skills in general, my sugar cookie piping skills, and my cake dusting skills. Fortunately, having so many weaknesses can make for great blog material, if I could just get that picture situation under control . . .
