Well, hello, friends.You sure have been lovely this week.
You may not know this, but I've really made it big. At the end of last year, I was accepted as a writer for the3six5. And I was going to try to explain it, but they do a far better job:
Every day for 365 days, a different person will write an entry about their experiences that day. The key is that each post somehow relates to what's happening in the world that day and how it relates to them. By doing so from January 1 to December 31, we will have a snapshot of the entire year, told from the perspective of 365 individual voices. Volunteers from across the country picked a date of their choice.
We believe everyone has a short story to tell that will help create the experience of living through a year in across the world.
Each author will write a 365-word reflection which will be posted to "lifestreaming" site Posterous. Posterous.com was selected over a typical blog or website because of its simplicity and its ability to syndicate content across major social networks. (You can access this page by simply going to www.the3six5.com.) If all goes well, our dream would be to publish the3six5 as a book. We suppose you could call it a crowdsourced journal of the year 2011.
So… Neat, right? All the people in the world, I'm one of 365 who get to write a post in 2011.
And here's the story behind the story, a story that can't be told in 365 words because really, there are no words: A game of Dance Dance Revolution was also involved. (But I use the passive voice because I don't want you to know it was me playing it.)
You could go read it if you wanted. This is the one time I will ever be okay with you navigating away from my website. So go. Go now.
And enjoy your Friday.
