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
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 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
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
There’s a new type of post: Highlights! Set up a bit different than regular posts, ‘Highlights’ break down a large topic into more manageable outline items. Instead on focusing on one subject per post, each outline item will cover a takeaway from a larger topic, event, or conference. We have toyed with the idea before,… Continue reading Highlights: The Series
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!
Day 760. We made it 760 days without missing a daily post. I drew, researched, and wrote everyday for over 2 years to make them – despite the times where I was sick, on vacation, busy with work, or quote unquote a bit burned out. I posted when I was recovering from a fractured rib,… Continue reading We’ll Be Right Back
We have exciting news! A new Series is on the way this month, another next month, but then a big announcement on Day 600 (keep an eye out). Black Lives Matter I hope this isn’t the first you’re hearing about it, but this month is Black History Month! To celebrate, we’re going to be posting… Continue reading Things on the Way
I’d like to introduce a new Series for the project, called Super News! Times are rough (couldn’t leave all bad things back in 2020 I guess), so the idea is to focus on pieces of good news at the beginning of the week to end the weekend on a good note, and help mitigate some… Continue reading Super News!
It’s been awhile since I’ve changed anything about the project, but even so, up until now I’ve only made minor tweaks to the graphics. But starting today (or I guess yesterday), not only will there be a slightly different layout for the post graphics, I’m introducing something called Series. With the new layout, there is… Continue reading Pixel Planet Today: Series!
