Anyway, today is an exciting day. Firstly, it's Melbourne Cup Day. Yup - we get a public holiday to watch a three minute horse race. Ain't Melbourne grand? Secondly, I made a spontaneous decision last night that I was going to compete in NaBloPoMo. That's National Blog Posting Month, if you're not up on your weird acronym lingo. And sure, I'm not in America, so the 'national' part is a little off. But who cares - I'm giving it a go anyway! So basically what it means is that I'll be posting every day in November. I apologise in advance if I run out of ideas and just resort to posting pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal or Doctor Who gifs.
I've also decided that I'm going to play along with a challenge I saw over on Angie's blog recently.
Just like I did with my 30 Days of Books earlier in the year, I'm not going to post it in 30 days straight. Because a) that's a little dull, b) Melbourne's weather at this time of year is inclement at best and I don't want to end up without a photo of something outside-y because there was a thunderstorm, c) that's cheating at NaBloPoMo, and d) I'm lazy.
So don't worry - you'll still be getting Movie Mondays, and the rest of my trip to the US, and some cooking, and probably a couple of 101 in 1001 posts. There'll just be 30 Days of Photography posts as well!
Which leads me to day 1 - a self portrait.
Wish me luck with NaBloPoMo! Is anyone else doing it this year?
