Kick Off 2012 with Project 365
If you were going to blog about one thing for an entire year, what would you choose?
Would you post photographs of your favorite place? Interview different people from your hometown? Create a new piece of art each day?
Here are eight unique blog projects (some are updated every single day) to inspire you to kick off 2012 with your own Project 365:
The goal, every day for the next year, approach one stranger, photograph them and promptly blog the experience. Rain or shine, hot or cold, healthy or ill, no days missed. I’ll do my best to create interesting photos, and for the sake of entertainment, work to get myself into a sticky situation from time to time. It’s a huge commitment. I’m sure there will be some hero photographs and some not so magnificent ones. Let’s see what happens!
The project right at this moment is to illustrate something (anything!) as quickly as possible every day.
Each day a new image will be uploaded with a small caption, phrase, quote, poem or whatever.
I created 365 pieces of burger artwork for a year from May 17, 2010 until May 16, 2011.
This is a project about people. It is a project about our space and the things we keep and the things we don’t throw away. It is a project about looking for and finding connections we all have. It is about seeing yourself in these spaces. Every picture is a portrait of the owner – be it a room, an object or a view. Every portrait in the end becomes a self-portrait. So in the end this is a project about me.
I often walk around the city in my beloved Liverpool FC jersey. I never miss to notice every other person wearing a soccer shirt, no matter how big the crowd. I’ve decided to approach and meet them, and photograph. Here are my brief encounters, far away from the pitch.
Since making Chicago our home, we have found that all it takes is one great conversation over one drink to create a long lasting friendship, change your outlook or learn something new. We have had so many of these experiences that we thought we’d start to share them as we continue getting to know the many fascinating people around our city. Join us as we sit down and have a drink with local entrepreneurs, chefs, celebrities, socialites, artists and athletes who all love Chicago as much as we do.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A blog to celebrate this is worth it.
So, do you have any ideas for your own Project 365?
Happy New Year from all of us at Automattic!
