Try Something New for 30 Days

[EDIT]

The exploring music for 30 days challenge is now over. It was a pretty laid back challenge but i think classical music and jazz/blues will NOW be part of my listening options.

Now i need to find a new challenge but this time something which is actually challenging.

Exploring music for 30 days

I mostly listen to the same genre of music and artists on a daily basis. Rock, some country and hip/hop and that’s about it for the most part.

In the next 30 days i will be well outside my tastes and comfort zone. Using internet radio applications, either on the phone, Pc or media player, i will only be listening to different genres and world music.

The Different Music for 30 days challenge started yesterday morning with Classical on BBC Radio 3 and surprisingly, i loved it.

A photo a day for 30 days challenge (the end)

Last Friday marked the end of the “A photo a day for 30 days challenge“.

It started on 31 October and it ended on 30 November (so technically, 31 days). I have made an album on Google+ which should be visible to all, even to non registered members.

Here’s the link.

P.S I have also written captions on each photo.
