My colleague Jim is a fount of fascinating stories, often having to do with projects he and his friends have undertaken. My latest favorite, The Year of the Blog.
My name is Dru Johnston, and I write unsustainable blogs.
Starting April 12th, 2009 I will be creating a new blog everyday for a year. At the end of that, if I don’t have at least four of them that I want to continue, I’m probably a miserable failure.
Let me make it clear that by “Blog” I mean a brand new website. Not just a new post… what kind of a project would that be? It wouldn’t. That’s the answer.
For project details and rules check out the page links to the right.

Or if this is your first time to The Year of the Blog you can check out a few of my favorite blogs to get a sense of what’s going on here.
Browse away and uncover some genius. I especially like his My Texts From Last Night (as tedious as they sound), Kanye Ruins Teenagers Treasured Moments (nothing funnier than translating visual jokes into awkward paragraphs), and his recent Plot or Not (answering the age-old question, is this a plot, or not?).
