Looking for 365/daily/every day blogs
June 13, 2010 7:44 PM   Subscribe

I admire the discipline of people who do an every-day project, like Noah Kalina and friends taking pictures of themselves. Jason Santamaria has a daily photo section on his site. Dean Allen posts daily pictures of his cool dog. Stormtroopers 365 was all the way fun. Cory Walker used to post a new drawing every day on his blog. What other similar blogs/projects do you know?

Preferably ones that aren't "XYZ daily picture," as they seem to be popular (yes, I know 365project.org).

Also, is there a list or directory of these type of projects?

You might be interested in 750 Words, which is a site that facilitates daily writing. Related to your question insofar as you might find that with its support, you can do an every-day project yourself!

Daily Coyote. I think the woman who runs that does something similar with her companion site Honey Rock Dawn.

A book review a day on Twitter. (By Mefi's own Sidhedevil.)

A middle school teacher is eating her school's lunch every school day and is up to day 98. (Previously.)

wearing the same dress every day for a year- black dress, brown dress

Index card wisdom, every weekday

Also, Julie & Julia inspired a variety of cooking blogs that aren't too hard to find ("every day for a year")

A Collection a Day, 2010

Momentile is a site where people post one photo a day. The idea is to try to capture the one moment that embodies the entire day. I find it a delightfully futile enterprise (I mean seriously, one photo to represent an entire day?!).

American Elf is a very sweet and funny daily comic drawn by James Kochalka. He's been doing it for many years now, with very few missed days--pretty impressive.

Dilar Pereira's been doing the Daily Collage Project since 2006.

Well before the world went crazy for Julie/Julia, Jess Thompson at Hogwash wrote a recipe a day for each day of 2007. Well written, and gorgeous food.

I don't know if it's inappropriate to self-link in this context, if so I'd invite deletion of this comment, but per this Projects post I've been blogging my daily lyric/poem/whatever writing project for quite a while. Detailed explanation of the slightly complicated organization and presentation of what are actually 2 related projects here.

This year's (I realize it's not daily, but think long-term!) Arrow of Time update is due in just 3 days. I'm looking forward to it. Been following them since I was in college.

100words.com -- One hundred words written every day (on honor system) and if you've written your 100 each day for the month just ended, that months hundreds will get posted on their site. Surprising (to me) how much can get said in 100 words. But also how little, which taught me what little I know about editing, cutting to essential, to get a thought expressed in 100 words.

What Are You Wearing Today? (warning: Flash) is my pseudo-homage to Tehching Hsieh (a previous, and more elaborate, comment about Mr. Hsieh in a thread on Marina Abramovic). It's a self-portrait every day for a year with my head shaved at the beginning and I'm also wearing the same pair of jeans throughout. The two details are, in a way, a measure of time and proof of the experience.

I was surfing the line of (seemingly random) "next blog" links the other day and came across the crazy atom orbit. It's daily artworks, paintings and collage-type things. Quite wonderful. Recent favourites are "Fish Out of Water", "Hot Day", and "Summer Trees" #1 and #2.

Champ 2010 (previously) is a web-comic by one Jed Collins, who is attempting this in lieu of drinking this year. He's been pretty consistent, though there are odd few missing here and there.

The blog Drawn! links to a lot of these, with a focus on cartooning and illustration. One that I remember is Dude-a-Day.

Seconding American Elf. It's amazing how complete a picture of his life you get after reading it for awhile.
