'1000 Awesome Things' Counts Down the Best Things About Life

— September 22, 2009 — Pop Culture
I stumbled upon this treasure chest of golden awesomeness when the Webby Award Winners were announced and '1000 Awesome Things' won Best Culture/Personal Blog. Simple but brilliant, it was launched on June 20, 2008 and will update each weekday until it reaches the #1 Awesome Thing. As the blog puts it, it’s “just a time-ticking countdown of 1000 awesome things.”

What can you find on 1000 Awesome Things? The best thing you can do for yourself is to take a minute (that’s all it takes to read one entry, although even one is sure to entice you to read them all) and visit the blog. From “#678 Sneaking cheaper candy into the movie theater” to “#681 Realizing that you’re going to be in the background of someone’s picture and smiling at the last second,” 1000 Awesome Things takes everyday experiences and makes them into momentous occasions. Optimistic and nostalgic, I find it the perfect way to begin each day.
