Little over a year ago, I started #onethingaweek, a personal journey to make more stuff. The plan was to “make” one “thing” each week, and document that on twitter (or some other social media platform). Definitions of “thing” and “making” are really blurry, as you’ll notice following this. Along the way, I’ve motivated a few others to join me on this journey, and they have done their fair share of really amazing things, which I’ll get to in a later post. But for now, here’s what I made in 2018.
The only “proper” collection of this is on twitter, so I worked through my tweets of last year to make a list of all the things I made throughout the year. You can find it at the end of this post. I was surprised by the content of the list. First off because I didn’t remember many things that I had made throughout the year. And second because I didn’t miss as many weeks as I thought I did.
I could go all analytical on it, but it really doesn’t matter, does it? There were a lot of projects where I learned a lot, like welding, sewing, woodworking, etc. And I had a lot of fun doing it. So, on to this year. I’ll try to do the same thing again, one thing a week, a picture or two of it up on twitter, and that’s it. I also hope to engage more people, but more on that in another post.
