I want to get to know you better and am eager to try an experiment. Are you up for an excercise in honesty that demands you to say one truthful thing about yourself every single day for one week?

This is my challenge!

Are you a blogger or journaler? Do you have a youtube channel? Do you have twitter or facebook? It doesn’t matter if you’re an atheist, republican, Canadian, teenager, stay-at-home mom, food blogger, cartoonist, scientist, or anything at all. There are no restrictions on who can participate.

Here’s What to Do

  1. Write, blog, plurk, tweet, or record one honest moment or thought each day for one week starting whenever you want.
  2. Be honest and take your time. Say something you may not have said to your audience before. It has to be about you, and it will hopefully be a bit more revealing of who you are than a statement like “I hate Chinese food.” Work with me here! If you’ve had writer’s block like I have, this could help you jump out of it. Use it as a springboard to talk about anything you like!
  3. When you start the challenge, leave your link below so we can all read it/watch it/fap to it.
  4. I’d appreciate it if you’d spread the word around so others could take part. You can link to this post and use the image above if you like! Tweet it, share it on facebook, or just keep it simple—your choice!
  5. There is no closing date, so come back and do it agin anytime!

I think this is an awesome idea, and I will definitely be participating in it. I feel that my blog, while still new, lacks information about me, and I feel like I should have some things about me on it so that people can, I don’t know, feel like they can relate to me or maybe trust me?

I’ll probably start posting tomorrow.

So I just started doing this on March 3rd, and just saw this post right now. I think it’s an awesome idea 🙂

Thanks for letting us know just how out of touch those of us are that are always honest. Not a good thing, to be sure. Can’t work in 90% of American fraud business…but this is a new level of “you’re completely out of touch”. Yeah I know this is more aimed at the gen X/Y- something made me uncomfortable for a moment so I lied- mindset…but still. Seems Homeland Security has standing orders to kill Dharma dead if ever spotted at the American frontier.

Maybe the same ends could be better accomplished working for population control/reduction?

I love this idea. Here’s my first post;

    Your blog is filled with transparent thoughts. What a treat!

    How great to have a theist involved! I was hoping for such diversity. Thanks!

I will attempt this via Twitter. Here is my first tweet: http://twitter.com/jeffthefish/status/10238823525

    Fantastic! Being on twitter makes it easy to follow, too.

Gregory · March 9, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Okay, I’m jumping in. I’ll really have to try a less intense one for tomorrow…(we’ll file my first entry under the “damn, this honesty thing is hard” category)

    What an intense read. Thanks for really taking this challenge to heart! I can’t wait to see what else you choose to write about.

1minion · March 11, 2010 at 6:27 am

I decided to tweet mine, too. I wound up repeating yesterday’s today though, on account of not thinking to check for a hashtag before I did it. Some new thing later today once I’ve thought of a good one.

    Thanks for taking part! Tweet away 🙂

Benia Zouras · April 7, 2010 at 7:54 pm

What’s the official hashtag to use for this on Twitter? Is it #HonestyProject?

I’m pretty honest with everyone, but I guess this is an opportunity to delve deeper and see if I’m being as honest as I think I am. I’ll give this a go. 🙂

    Godless Girl · April 7, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    That’s great, Benia! So glad to follow you on Twitter! And yes, the hashtag is #honestyproject, so you’re right on track. I look forward to seeing what out-of-the-norm insights you come up with 🙂
