Make100

Let's make something for 100 days straight.

What

There are a lot of times that I start something without a clear definition of what I'm doing. Let's do that here...

What is Make100?

Make100 is similar to #100DaysofCode or #100Daysof (actually it's exactly like those), but with the focus on generally making anything. I want to commit, wholly, to creating something every day for the next 100 days.

Code? Absolutely. Painting? Yep. Food? Count it. 3D Printing? No doubt. Sweat? Work it.

Just make something. Once a day. For 100 days.

Why

Well... there are dozens of reasons why I want to do this, but, the main reason is that I want to exercise my creative muscle. Along with that, I want to commit to something. Consistency was my 2022 word of the year, and I want to stay true to that.

I want to challenge myself to commit to something and to remain consistent throughout. I just want to make things; Software, small electronics projects, more 3D printing, maybe try spray paint art; the possibilities are endless. I just want to create.

I also think that movements like #100DaysofCode might end up being too niche for some. Even though they would like to commit to doing something for 100 days in a row, or want to participate in a community like that, #100DaysofCode might be too technical or too focused.

This is for all makers.

When

I started on May 1, 2022 (2022-05-01) with the revamp of this website, which you can learn more in this post. Today, it's this blog post (and some delicious pasta I had for dinner). I'm not sure what it's going to be tomorrow, but that is a part of the excitement, right?

This means that my last day of make will be August 9, 2022 (2022-08-09).

How

I'll tweet something every day with the hashtag #Make100 and a picture or a link. I'll probably set up a list on tweetdeck for the hashtag #Make100 so I can see, like, and retweet the things you make (there's probably a project idea here).

I'd love to start a community around this as well. So, in that regard, I've made a discord server that you can join if you want to talk to Other Makers who are also participating in #Make100.
