I started this blog with the intention to record and share my thoughts and opinions on simple things of life that make it unique, people and projects that inspire me and share my creative pursuits; my attempts to learn by doing. I did not know what to expect nor had any plans in place and obviously , it was easy to loose track and loose interest. Of late I re-realized how far behind I am from my original intent. I have been reading a lot more than I have been writing and observing others in what they do right that I have been doing wrong.
Having acknowledged lagging behind in my blogging goals previously, it has taken me this long to take the next step. That is to take action to change. In my passive activity on the blogo-sphere I came across some blogs that are chronicling 365 days of some kind of a project: the kindnesskronicles and Montreal in pictures are two such blogs that I have been following. Some others are creating and sharing themes around photography with in community of bloggers- like fat mum slim’s monthly photo-a-day challenge , Frizztext’s A-Z challenge. There are many others who are doing extremely well and creating wonderful, beautiful content. Inspired , I have decided to create a small blogging project (baby steps) for myself – introducing Project Sententia31.
Sententia is a Latin term meaning thought or opinion. This word (as you might have guessed ) is also the root word for ‘sentence’ which means a set of words that is complete in itself, typically containing a subject and predicate, conveying a statement, question, exclamation etc. My idea is to create next 31 posts over the course of next month expressing my thoughts and ideas with various mediums, alternating between writing (11posts), photography (10 posts), sketches, DIY or culinary projects(10 posts). By the end of this exercise , I hope to rediscover my storytelling strengths and weakness and of course meet my blogging goals. I have also decided not to over analyze and be discouraged but to go with the flow. My goal is to complete a thought through and not leave it half way ….
It goes without saying , your comments and feedback would help. Here to being inspired!!
