After recapping 2012 yesterday, here’s a look forward to 2013…
Looking forward to 2013. While I’m not sure that I’ll have the opportunity to travel quite as much in 2013 as I did in 2012, I will continue my journey as an amateur photoblogger and plan to continue taking and sharing a shot a day. Here are some of the things I want to do in 2013 (in no particular order):
A to Z Posts. From the A to Z posts that showcased my fellow photobloggers to the A to Z recap of my own work from 2012 that I shared during the month of December, these posts have been really well received. In 2013, I’d like to publish an A to Z post of other photobloggers’ work each month and then recap my own 2013 shots in December.
Take Some Formal Classes. I feel like I’ve learned as much as I can right now on my own and am enrolled in both a basics and an entry-level Photoshop class in early 2013. I am especially excited to learn more about controlling the settings on my camera (rather than shooting in automatic or relying on a series of pre-set options) and taking indoor shots.
Another Year Older. With 2012 behind me, I’m another year older (aren’t we all?) and need to continue to remember the importance of regular exercise and good eating in my life. Look for more photos of these two experiences in 2013, whether it’s my yoga mat or treadmill or more shots from trail walks as the weather gets nicer. I’m really going to need to get better at indoor shots before I can take more photos of my cooking!
Better Blogging. Along with better photography, I’d like to continue to improve my writing skills and continue to build traffic to my site. It’s also important for me to leave more comments (rather than just “likes”) on the posts of fellow photoblogger sites that inspire me, so I will need to work on finding better words than just “Ooooh! Nice shot.” so that my comments are meaningful.
Sculptures and Fountains of Kansas City. I’d also like to make significant progress on capturing the many beautiful sculptures and fountains that grace the Kansas City metropolitan area in 2013. So far I’ve captured about 25. I only have hundreds to go!
What about you? What do you hope to accomplish in 2013?
