January is Inspiration Month

First, a quick note: I have two New Year’s resolutions. The first is to track and record my life a bit better. The second is to make this site more interactive. To link people up to each other. In that vein, I’ve decided to set monthly topics for this blog. My hope is that it will inspire me to write more posts and inspire you to participate.

Inspiration Month

Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day. Thornton Wilder

Last night, I was thinking about the burst of energy that always comes with a new year. We set goals, make resolutions, and look ahead to new challenges. If you’re a crafty person, you might be thinking about projects or business ideas you want to tackle in 2007. You want a new fashion line, a new handmade product to sell, a new direction. But what if the holidays have totally burned you out? In honor of this creative wall, January will be Inspiration Month around these parts. It will be about getting up off your butt, seeing like an artist, keeping and building inspiration points and just general, um, inspiring stuff.

We will also be posting a challenge related to the topic in the Flickr HD gallery each month. Think of it as a starting point. You may still post photos outside of the topic, of course, but I’m hoping it will encourage everyone to be more involved with HD’s online life.

January’s challege is here.

Happy January everyone!
