Projects

I created this website as a challenge to myself to learn self-sufficient projects.  My goal is to start 1 self-sufficient project for each month of 2013.  I’ll be using this blog to document my experience.  I’m no expert, but plan to share everything I learn.  Through this challenge I hope to inspire you in your own projects.

Here is a list of possible projects that I will be doing this year.  If you think one should be added to the list, let me know!
