well I'm definitely not going to agree with that ... I wrote this at the end of my 366-consecutive-image-a-day stint back in August ...

This thread seems to be getting as long as the images posted in the SIJ gallery - not sure which will get to the end first - taking the shots is easy - posting (intelligent) and useful comments is the difficult part for me - (as you all have probably noticed)

To be honest I'm not finding it much of a hardship to be restricted to the x-10. The hardest part is remembering to take it with me when I leave for work in the morning.

Paul, just noticed the sneaky amendment of my name in your quotation of me above. Mr Encouraging indeed!

I think that maybe, just maybe there is room to consider a single a day type thread with no comments from anyone - i.e. a bit like a no words type thread

I thank the Mods and appreciate what many other members are doing for the good of the Forum ...........

I'm not sure that I would be disciplined enough to stick out a whole month of "single in silence". It is everyone's comments that keep me going when my mojo looks like deserting.

Man, I had fallen a bit behind in commenting and have been going at it for quite some time.....finally down to 2 more pages. I'll probably take a break and be behind by another 5 or 6 again. I think when I take a trip later this month, I'll have to throw in the towel on commenting and just skip everything that is posted on those days or I'll go crazy.

The keeping up can be hard..especially when some folks, who shall be nameless, upload a bunch because they've been fortunate enough to be on vacations.
Last night I couldn't come on much at all... I looked and was overwhelmed and exhausted..but I persevered at different times and amazingly caught up. However, no one should feel compelled. We all have to do the best we can without turning the experience into a "have to". At least that's what I think. I'm sure our fearless leader AKA The Encourager will weigh in.

Perhaps breaking the "How's It Going" thread into thirds may make it easier to follow. Close this one after today, day 10, and start another for days 11-20, and then another for days 21-31. Right now we're at 33 pages, and it might be taxing on some folks' browsers, or ISP's, to deal with this much. That way we can continue the comments in these threads without this going to 100 pages, or more. "Bite-sized" pieces some might say.
Just an idea,
