I had grand plans for posting a photo today, but just didn't have the time to get the makeup, costuming, and other such things needed to pull it off. I'm finding my daily taking of a photo for Whiskerino to be something that I feel obligated to do and not something I want to do (hence me putting it off so late in the day until it can't be avoided). I think a big part of this is because I like to do things right or not do them at all really. I have a list of probably 50 ideas and growing that I'd like to do for Whiskerino but I just don't have the time or energy I guess. Perhaps also I'm getting tired of taking pictures of myself. Can I take pictures of other people with beards?

I will continue to post daily, but until I find some more time or more drive to post bigger and better things I don't know how much effort there will be. I apologize fellow beards, but I felt the need to be honest. I have at least a handful of ideas that I'd really like to pull off before this thing is over. We'll see what happens.

Thanks for all the awesome photos today I was really super impressed by everyone and had a great time looking at what all of you did. Sorry I did not contribute to the awesome-factor today and sorry I have been slack on the commenting. I'll try to do better. Good night.

you've given us 2 1/2 months of really fantastic photos. I think you can slack off for a while.

back that shit up on DVDR man. it's stupid to lose a drive and not have it stored on recordable media. plus that shit lasts for YEARS if you don't mess with it

Happens with everything creative from time to time, it's a long haul and you sprinted ALOT and got alot of people super excited with your images. I have no worries you'll be back on track soon- you can't stop beard power our support.

..And you're still a favorite to me for everything you've done so far!

mackle says:
yea, seek out some other beardos and get some collabs going.. make it more about the social aspect than the dredges of doing the actual photo.

going huge all the time is extremely taxing - just sit back and relax. whiskerino should be fun, not an obligation at all.

It's about this time that the difference between MM and Wrino sink in - with MM therr's this intense obligation to kick butt every day that's impossible to keep up for 4 months. Not to mention, you added that extra personal obligation to the list. Two awesome things a day plus LIFE? It's more than anyone could handle!

I'm in the office today. We should do a quick group shot, you @poe and I.

I'm feeling that mid-winter slump too. Sounds like you've got some buddy-shot potential with the rest of the GA beards, though. So you've got that!

Yeah our colab is waaaaay overdue. (And IMHO one of the best things about the Whiskerino.)

My best Whiskerino was 2K3 mostly because @cdub and I had the luxury of posting a colab everyday.

I feel exactly the same @yourfavorite but I still try to post everyday.. sometimes it comes with one click, sometimes with 30 clicks

I want to have the perfect attendance thing otherwise I should post 4-5 times a week. I totally understand and I feel respect
