Personal Project: Holidailies

Holidailies is a web community project that I organized annually from 2000 to 2010. Participants agreed to update their blogs or other personal websites every day in December. They could post links to these entries to the Holidailies portal site.

Starting in 2004, I worked with a PHP programmer to develop new features for the Holidailies site. Participating sites appeared in the left sidebar in order by number of posts. Participants filled out a form to post links and summaries of entries to the main portal. A panel of reviewers accessed a form to use for reviewing every entry posted and awarding Best of Holidailies recognition to the best entries posted every day. The site also included a Holidailies At Home page for participants who could not post to the portal but still wanted to update their sites daily during the annual event.
