In episode 1002 I mentioned a program we are soft launching right now and hard launching on Jan 1st 2013. The program works this way, people commit to either adding or drastically improving 13 skills in 2013. The skills can be primitive, traditional, mechanical or even technical. It is all about restoring the ability to actually do things to our nation.
I would like a cool way for people to track their progress. A simple profile based website where people can set up their profile, list their skills and just check them off as they get them done. It needs to be easy to use and easy to manage. I would like the front to have a list of everyone or perhaps a photo cloud or something. If anyone knows a word press plugin that will do this let me know. Or if you know a script that will do this that works too, also if a programmer out there can whip something like this up quickly get in touch with me.
I know we can do this on the forum but a dedicated site seems much cooler! Also a few people submitted designs for the concept but the best I feel came from Kelly Gendrou at SurvivalGearBags.com here it is…
This is just a comp for now, there may be some tweaks yet to come. The thought though is we will make version of the graphic with the stars colored in red one by one, each time you complete a skill you can grab a badge with another star colored in for your blog or forum profile or what have you.
Additionally Kelly is working on getting the TSP Gear Shop back in action and we will likely offer this as a moral patch, a decal or both. While many in the survival community are expecting doomsday on 12-21-12, we are planning for making 2013 a year of personal growth and hope you will join us as part of the challenge.
