Is blogging making a comeback?

In the past few months, I have seen some of my old blogging friends have started making small appearances via occasional posts on their sites and it is so heartening so see memories documented and deep thoughts shared again through this medium.
Social media these has become a whole lot about pretty pictures and less about the emotions behind them and its hard to know through a 'like' or 'heart' button if they just like your pictures or they got the emotion you were trying to convey.

Anyways, the reason I started to type my thoughts today was that its the first day of the #HundredDayProject and I have been thinking hard and deep about the things that I'd like to bring my focus back to in the next hundred days and there were quite a few things in my life at the moment that I can bring my attention to, there is a paper I'm working on and I can focus on its research; there is a certification that I'm trying to attain and I can focus on the study plan; I'm missing my fitness goals and I can bring them into the fore... the list goes on... But as with all social projects to be accountable they must be tangible enough to share and interesting enough for your fellow travelers to care about your journey.

After mulling over various details and complexity of the schedule that I foresee in the next few months I've decided that I'll focus on #100daysOfMemoryKeeping
Ever since I moved to California more than two years ago, half of my scrapbooking supplies are still packed in boxes and I'd like to change that and I'd like to document more about life in general.
I plan to make 100 memory pages/projects in the next hundred days and even though I won't be able to make one page per day I'd like to commit to devoting 15 minutes of memory keeping activity each day. Some of the things I plan to do are
  1. Sort, edit and print pictures. 
  2. Sort and categories scrapbooking supplies.
  3. Print enlargements and frame pictures
  4. Blog about previous and upcoming trips and share pictures
  5. Make digital pages/books
  6. Document my progress on the blog
With those intentions and a picture of one of my dad's paintings... lets begin this 100 day journey!
Please leave a comment if you are pursuing a 100 day project so I can come check out your progress and encourage you on the way.
