Most people who read this already know about my calendars.
They're your basic picture wall-calendar, with lots of pictures I took. But that's not what makes them cool. What does is that I put a small bit of information in for every single day of the year.
I started making them in (I think) 2008. Back then I just put in a few factoids each month. But it got to be more and more every year until I decided it's silly not to just do every day. I haven't made one of my calendars in the past couple of years because it is
a crazy amount of research, not to mention actually typing it all in and trying to make it look decent.
This year I clearly have the time. And I decided to try mass-producing the things.
So I started a Kickstarter thing to see if I can get it funded.
The thing is, the people who read this who know about it, well, if I get the thing funded I still want to give you guys one - you're the Legacy Club as far as I'm concerned. Sadly I have zero infrastructure on which to reach people (who's have thought no facebook would actually bite me?) and spread the word.
Now, yes, I'm kind of used to putting huge amounts of effort into projects and only having three or four people see them. But this time I'd kinda like to get more of a reach. If I can pull this off I can make it a yearly thing. That'd be cool.
So if any of you guys have had people see the calendars in the past and go "Hey that's a neat calendar!" maybe tell them about it. And if you know people you think might like it, hey, toss them a note too.
The Kickstarter campaign is here
, and it contains an embarrassingly cheesy video.
I've also got a small website for the whole thing here
, which contains the photos I'm thinking of using, since I couldn't figure out how to get that on Kickstarter in any convenient way.
I feel kind of bad asking you guys to help spread the word, but I figure since I managed to strong-arm myself into making that video I can strong-arm myself into hitting "Publish". And then cutting and pasting it to other blog forums.
I've already got the actual calendar done up to June, so that's cool. I think this is the earliest I've ever started working on it!
