Am I really starting a blog?

So I've been bugging a friend at work to design a blog for me, but he's been a little slow on the uptake. To be honest, I'm not too sure what goes into designing the blog itself, I was just hoping I could add some uniqueness to mine, but this plain version will have to do for now. (Joseph, if you're reading this, can we jazz this up now?)

I've been thinking of starting a blog for a couple of months now, for a variety of reasons, but now I've finally found a reason that actually makes some sense. I've decided to take on a new challenge for 2009 - Project 365, which bascially is a challenge to take one photograph a day for an entire year. If I can maintain this challenge, I think it will be great to look back at an entire year of photographs that represent my life... as exciting as it is on some days, and a little more mundune on other.

So what sparked my interest in this Project 365? For any other scrapbookers out there, you've probably heard of Becky Higgins (for non-scrapbookers she's a well-known scrapbooker artist). She recenlty released a kit through CK Media to challenge others to participate in this challenge to capture their life in a year through a picture a day. The kits were extremely popular and sold out in one morning - apparently it was a big fiasco and I didn't even come close to having the opportunity to purchase one, but needless to say I am going to participate in the challenge anyway and post many, if not all of my photos here on my brand new blog. Thank you Becky for the challenge!
