Photoshop requires you to be creative and design savvy, two
things I am not. I spent a year miserably failing in a photoshop based job. I
think the only thing I learned to efficiently in that time was crop things
It was one of my goals to extend my knowledge, but it has not been easy.
1: Photoshop is expensivvvvve. Spare cash I have not.
2: Beginner’s photoshop tuition is expensive and you need to dedicate time to it. Time I have not.
3: There are lots of YouTube videos explaining various techniques but they rarely start from the very basics.
I don’t really consider myself a blogger, I have no intention of perusing it as a ‘career’ or monetising it. I just enjoy blogging when I can, with no pressure.
This blog is a pleasure to write, when I have time. I have SOOOO many plans for it. Recording my 101 challenges, blogging about my plastic free struggle, uploading my holiday diaries, recording (reviewing) the books I have read and much much more.
I wrote religiously in a diary for many many years, and a blog seemed like an interesting progression to make, putting my random thoughts not on paper but… ‘out there’. BUT….
I have just logged into the Day Zero Project website and I was shocked to discover that I am well over half way through my 1001 days!
I apparently have 480 days left until I finish on July 29th 2020.
So much for completing half of my challenges by now…..
And so much for writing a half way through post on Day 500,
this will have to do!
As predicted the first 10% was a lot easier to accomplish than the next, particularly when 2018 has been a disaster on the challenge front as well as the blogging front.
I am now ready with my next update for my 101in1001, I have finally reached 20%.
You can read my complete list of things to try and accomplish before July 2020 here. here.
My poor old blog.
My poor old sad neglected blog.
It was going so well, my 101 challenges were on track, I was beginning to review again and I had so many plans for the future, activities to do and blogs to write.
Then I disappeared like a puff of smoke. Not a murmur written in six months.
So where have I been?
I can’t believe that I am 10% through my challenge in just over a month. Actually, I can, the last time I attempted a 101in1001 challenge I did exactly the same.
I ticked the one-off challenges quite quickly, pottered along with the midrange ones and then ground to halt near the end.
The idea behind 101in1001 is easy, set yourself 101 challenges to complete in 1001 days, they can be big / small / anything at all.

So… My first ten challenges are listed below – it is going to get an awful lot tougher from now on…
Here they are:
