Thing-a-Day 2013: What Will You Make?

ThingADay

Today, February 1st, launches the 7th Edition of the annual Thing-A-Day activity. Participants post a single project they create, each and every day of the shortest month of the year, of whatever activity they want to share. From an elaborate meal to sophisticated Arduino patches, the range of contributions is most of the fun when checking in on the project stream. (Check out my favorite project, Ranjit’s 5th Annual Musical-Instrument-A-Day Challenge, here!)

Are you going to participate? Wanna shame me into finishing this year? Check out details how to participate this year at the WordPress.com site for ThingADayForever and share what you are looking to try this year by posting a comment below.

2013 is Thing-a-day’s 7 year as an open space that enables people to get together virtually and participate in a creative sprint to make one new thing a day and post it to a collective blog space.

The rules for participation are minimal, everyone is encouraged to select a weekly, monthly or daily challenge and theme for themselves and get to work. You can use ant medium as long as your efforts can be reported back on this blog once a day.

Thing-a-day is a place where everyone can imagine, inspire, create, dream, and present work to a group of peers striving to further their practice. The goal is to make creativity a daily ritual and to help create a digital community of like minded and supporting people.

Everyone is welcome. You’re free to sign-up, watch, and comment on the work of other fellow participants. All you have to do is commit to yourself and try your best.
