So many instructables...

Bert + Ernie

When I set myself the challenge of writing an instructable every day this month, I don't think I fully appreciated how much time it would take to not just write the instructables, but actually make the things that I would be writing instructions for. I also didn't fully grasp yet how little free time I would have now that I'm back to work.

While I didn't quite meet my goal, I did write a lot of instructables and helped give YuKonstruct an early lead in the Makerspace Contest. I've also worked on several projects that, while not instructables yet, will soon be ready to become instructables.

Here's what did get published this month, many of these projects are entered in contests, so I would appreciate your votes!

Instructables Challenge

My Little Brony

Instructables is hosting an epic makerspace contest with over $30,000 in prizes.

The contest is all about quantity (the makerspace with the most instructables published between June 1 and August 31 wins) so I've decided to publish as many instructables as I can this summer.

This month I'm challenging myself to publish one instructable every day. It is a great opportunity to finally push myself to write up a bunch of projects I've had kicking around for ages.

I'll be publishing my personal projects as ModMischief and I'll also be writing up group projects for YuKonstruct - so you can follow both accounts to see all the instructables.

I'm off to a good start having just published two instructables in the last two days:
