newwwyear is a hashtag (#NewwwYear for better readability) portmanteau of ”new”, ”WWW” for the World Wide Web, and “year”, proposed at the end of 2017 by Jamie McHale and popularized by Jen Simmons to encourage people to tweet their personal website plan for the upcoming new year, similar to the annual IndieWeb commitments wiki pages that began at the end of 2014 with 2015-01-01-commitments.
- indieweb commitments for the upcoming year’s IndieWeb commitments
- commitments for all past year’s IndieWeb new year commitments
#newwwyear was popularized by Jen Simmons on Twitter as a means of using the idea of New Year's resolutions for taking small, but concrete steps towards building and improving one's website
Ok, here’s the deal. Tweet your personal website plan with the hashtag #newwwyear (thanks @jamiemchale!):
1) When will you start?
2) What will you try to accomplish?
3) When is your deadline?
Improve an existing site. Start a new one. Burn one down & start over. It’s up to you.
