50 States Project - Update!
Thanks to the hundreds of great suggestions and additions, the 50 States Project has now been updated with a collective Top 10 for each state and a map detailing the locations of each activity.
You can still share your own Top 10 list and help others discover great things to do in your State.http://tmblr.co/Z_IXTyh5noJp
Introducing Day Zero Plus. Take your challenge to the next level…
For more than four years Day Zero Project has existed to give you the motivation and inspiration to set and achieve goals in a fun and challenging way.
Along with a rapidly growing community, the website is expanding with regular new features and even more ideas planned in the future.
Now for the first time you can show your support with an optional Plus membership that will add some exclusive new features to your account!http://tmblr.co/Z_IXTyfVZSda
The 50 States Project
Last year at Day Zero Project we launched the Places directory as a way to discover interesting things to do in destinations across the globe. A few sharp visitors noticed that the US was not included in this list…
Day Zero is a truly global community, but not surprisingly around 40% of our members are based in the US. So we thought it would be a fun idea to use all this great knowledge and get people to recommend the best and most interesting things to do in their State.
Introducing the 50 States Project! A way to share the best local knowledge of things to do across the US. Head over to the index page and select your State (or any State you have travelled) and fill out your Top 10 things to see and do.
Once we have a good range of suggestions we will publish the ultimate Top 10 list for each State!http://tmblr.co/Z_IXTyd_zqkH
For 2013: Make a Memory Jar
Put memories made throughout the year in the jar. Then on New Year’s eve empty and read them all from the wonderful year you’ve had :)
This was a very popular project last year - read more about it at Steamy Kitchen.
A memory jar is more fun than a journal – as anyone in the family can contribute to it. The best is when one of us secretly writes memory and quietly slips it into the jar. I can’t wait to read some of the notes my kids have written all year long.
You could even write out your 7 Things x 2013 goals and add them to the jar - then see how you did at the end of the year.http://tmblr.co/Z_IXTyaKWg4i
Last New Year we tried an experiment and asked the Day Zero community to list some New Year’s goals based on 7 prompts.
The response was huge with over a thousand participants filling out their goals!
This year we are repeating the challenge - check out the summary from the 7 Things x 2012 responses, then decide on your own goals for 2013!
