Project 365  

So I want to do more photography, of course, and so I thought I’d give Project 365 a go this year. The problem for me isn’t really taking pictures. It’s getting them processed. I had a hard time doing that *before* I had a baby. It hasn’t gotten any easier. So I figured rather than torture myself about it I’d try to process and upload photos 2 or 3 times a month. So far, so good.

Since I’m not blogging very regularly I’m not going to post all the photos on my LJ (the set is here, if you want to keep an eye on it), but I figured when I did blog I’d post one of the recent ones, so here’s yesterday’s photo, looking down O’Connell Street at the Millennium Spire at about 10:30am.

Day 008: Millennium Spire

I also took this one yesterday, but it’s not a Project 365 photo because Young Indiana is undoubtedly going to be the default subject for the year, and I figured if I get a picture of something, anything, else, I should use it instead. :)


Ooh! Hey. Does anybody know how to suck a Flickr feed into a blog automagically? That would be awesome. :)

Anyway, I’ll try to make a post with actual content soon, but in the meantime, y’know. Pictures!

Aww, that's a great picture of Young Indiana. That kid has a serious case of the cutes.

Flickr made it surprisingly hard to find, but they do have an FAQ about posting to blogs other than Facebook. From what I'm seeing, you'll first need to add your LJ to your Flickr blog settings (if you haven't already). Then, it looks like the best bet is to upload by email. If I'm reading things right, you can use that to simultaneously upload to your photostream and automatically post to your blog.

Similarly, you could set up an account at posterous, which could then be configured to crosspost to Flickr and LJ.

Someone else seems to have done it using a service called Feedburner (which has since been bought out Google in their quest to quietly take over the entire internet).

What might be more direct, though I haven't tried it, is rss2lj, which can purportedly take an RSS feed (which flickr provides) and automatically post it to LJ. But I'm not sure what you'd need to run it. Possibly RealBasic, if I'm reading the file extension properly.
