2023 Wrapped

Aaaand that’s a wrap on 2023! It flew by, likely just because we were so gosh-darn busy (few to no complaints about it though)! We’re happy with all of the things we accomplished, but we’re even more excited for what 2024 holds for us. So without further ado: here’s our year in review, including our… Continue reading 2023 Wrapped

Sustainability vs. Perfectionism

I started writing this with the intention of making a simple “what I’m thankful for” Thanksgiving blog post (cute, right?) – but as I started writing, I realized there were some things I had to cover first. They tie in pretty nicely with the gratitude-bit, but they’re also things that (I’m sure) apply to almost… Continue reading Sustainability vs. Perfectionism

Four years, but this year…

It’s important to reflect every once in a while. For me (Sammy here), that comes around each year on what I like to call Pixel Day (the anniversary of the first Pixel Planet Today post). Four short years ago (or long, depending on how you look at it), I started a small project that would… Continue reading Four years, but this year…

Three Cheers for Three Years

Three years ago, I (Sammy here, hello) set out to create one pixel design a day to pair with a fact about the planet. Not because I had to for work, a school project, or anything else – but because I wanted to. I wanted to make a difference in the world, and I figured… Continue reading Three Cheers for Three Years

Post 1000: Big News, Big Feelings

1000 days of pixel posts. Not back-to-back, mind you (we made it 760 days nonstop before dealing with insane flooding, give me a break), but still a huge, huge milestone for the project, nonetheless. It’s emotional, for sure, but we’ll get to that. First comes what’s new with the project! 😊🌎 PROJECT VS. BUSINESS Up… Continue reading Post 1000: Big News, Big Feelings

We hid our like counts – you should too

I’m not sure there is a person alive that doesn’t have mixed feelings about social media. It connects us, yet makes us feel alone. Businesses and creators rely on it for exposure, but algorithms make it increasingly more difficult to be seen. As Pixel Planet Today is almost completely social media-based, we know full well… Continue reading We hid our like counts – you should too

Flooding in Nebraska: A Case of Climate Change

Climate change is a vast issue, with consequences fanning out to every corner of our world. Yes, rising sea levels will be a massive problem to tackle, but as will changing bird migrations, decreases in glacier accumulation, and extinctions of whole ecosystems. Huge issues like the amount of plankton that are able to survive in… Continue reading Flooding in Nebraska: A Case of Climate Change

We’re Open!

After a much-longer-than-anticipated hiatus, I’m so so happy to finally announce that we’re back! I can’t lie, it’s been a really hard few weeks, but I’m so excited to be getting back to the project that helped me find my calling. I was initially planning on getting back into daily posts today, but instead, I… Continue reading We’re Open!
