This morning, I uploaded my final vlog:
Like I said in the video, my life just can't sustain the "daily publishing" requirement of the my series of projects. That's ok.
To be honest, I'm not upset. It was very taxing and took a crazy amount of work to keep this going for 5 years. The fact that I made 300+ videos this year is a miracle.
"The 365" as we know it today is over. That's a big deal for me.
In fact, I don't think it really hit me how big of a deal it is until writing this.
"The 365" was my first big project. It helped me grow in an uncountable amount of ways. When it started, I wasn't making any money from photo or video, I wasn't good at photography, I didn't have a college degree, I wasn't married, I didn't even really know who I was. I just started posting crappy photos in hopes it would get me somewhere.
While doing a daily project, you don't feel the growth. You only feel it when you look back at 300 days and think about what all has changed over that period. It still shocks me.
I owe "The 365", I owe it a proper send off. I did it a little in the above video, but I need to do it right. I need to give each year the spotlight it deserves.
I'll be posting a retrospective, on Youtube and Instagram of each of the 5 years of this project. Then finally, I can put it to bed and start something new.
