I have not had a blog post for ages, for this I am sorry.
There is no real reason, I would like to be able to say that I have been busy and important, that is only half true. The busy bit J there is a lot of stuff happening around me that I have no control over and it has stressed me out, my work load has increased, my pay remains the same ***sigh*** and my free time is limited or taken up with family time.
I was thinking about why I stopped posting so often and it is really such a simple and silly reason….my Google Chrome has stopped spell checking, I have looked at my settings and I can’t get it back. I am the world’s worst speller and my grammar is almost non-existent. I have gotten very lazy with spelling since spellchecker, lulled into a false sense of security that my mistakes will be caught by the computer before I go public. I have put on my big girl pants and remembered what it was like before spell checker and proof read my work. (Then I will google words that don’t look right)
I was going to try and make up for not being a good blogger and write a really long post with a heap of the photos that I have missed sharing over the last few months, but I will not bore you I will make a promise to myself to do a better job in the future.
I will share a few positives that have happened
In the January challenges in our Flickr group, I got a first place in the winner challenge with my Noise photo. The brief was take a photo where the viewer can ‘hear’ the noise.
I also got second place in the weather challenge.
Hear the noise
Rainbow over Old Woman Island
I think my most exciting news for this year is my first ever lightning photo – technically it was last year as the photo was taken on the 27 December 2013, that is only semantics really. I was so excited to be in the right place at the right time although I have been to this lookout about 4 times before in waiting for a storm it has never been the right time.
I will be a better blogger starting today, pinky swear.
