So here’s the thing… (AKA Don’t Call It a Comeback)


I suck at doing. It’s a hard fact. Ask anyone who knows me. I am an eternal procrastinator. Here’s a fine example: it’s the 17th of May, 2018, and I haven’t finished writing out my 2018 New Year’s resolutions. Need more? How about this: it’s actually the 30th of November, 2018, and I’m only now getting around to finishing this entry. And no, I still haven’t finished writing out my 2018 resolutions. Yeah. And the worst part about it is that it’s still a thing I want to actually get done.

When I started DueByFriday, the idea was that a weekly deadline would force me to accomplish something. And in a way, it did. I thought more about doing than I ever have before. The idea sat in the back of my head, stalking me throughout my days and weeks and months.

But the actual doing? Yeah, not so much. There are certainly things I did do. Some of them daily, some weekly, some whenever inspiration struck. But what I have consistently failed to do is anything I said I’d do here. I’m going to fix that. Welcome to DueByFriday 2.0, dammit.

So here’s to fresh starts once again. Because really, that’s what DueByFriday is all about at its core. We can do anything at any time. We can start today. Right now. In fact, stop reading and go do something. Come back after you’re done and tell me about what you just accomplished. I’ll be waiting.

So yeah, about that weekly posting thing

Did I mention I’m bad at habit-building? Probz should’ve mentioned that up front. So yeah, kind of missed February and most of March. But that doesn’t mean anything in the greater scheme of things. There are always Friday’s just around the corner, and I’ve decided this would be a good one to jump back in here again.

So I promised reviews of blogging software in my last post. I’m just going to go ahead and pretend like that didn’t happen, if that’s alright with you. If you’ve been dying to hear my opinions on random software, I’m sorry to disappoint. But here! Let me share with you some photos to make up for it!

These were taken on one of my trips to Paris a few years ago. After the Paris attacks, I started going back through my old shots from that trip, just to remind myself that it’s still a beautiful city, even when faced with ugly things.

So here you go. I haven’t done any post-processing with them or anything. These were just some pretty pictures I felt like sharing. So enjoy!


Reviews coming soon

Life stuff popped up this week, so the reviews of MarsEdit, Blogo, and Desk will come out next Friday. To make up for the delay, I’ll also be taking a look at Byword. So stay tuned for all the fun next Friday. In the meantime, have a great week!
