"Wonderful Journey"

Okay, it's official. We're one month into the new year . . . 32 days in.  Where are you in fulfilling the goals you've set for the next twelve months?  Are you on track?

If you're Danielle Villano, a student of creative writing (and an avid photographer) at the State University of New York (SUNY Purchase), you've continued on a path of discipline already started in 2009.  Danielle has made a personal commitment to document her first year of life as a college freshman. Her mission, her challenge--each day for more than 138 days, so far--has been to publish one photograph and write a short accompanying description about something in her daily life - whether unique or mundane.  She posts these entries to "My Wonderful Journey," her own personal photo-journal on Blipfoto - a very modern way of keeping a journal in the multi-faceted media age. Danielle finds it is the perfect place to preserve a slice of her own personal history and share it with family and friends, while sharpening the talents she has for both writing and photography - two creative disciplines that can serve as inspiration for each other.

So whatever goals you've set, keep at it. Don't give up. Thirty-two days of the new year might be gone, but there are still another 333 to go!
