Keeping up with all those habits

At the beginning of the year, I announced on this blog that I would average a blog entry per month, and two Facebook updates per week. The idea is that there are a lot of things that I would like to be in the habit of doing regularly, and starting a new habit for a new year has worked well for me in the past.

I'm happy to say that I'm doing reasonably well with those two habits, but thinking about those habits and all the other things I'd like to be doing regularly got me to thinking: Wouldn't it be great to have a tool to help track all those habits? So, being a web developer, I started writing exactly such a tool. It's helped to remind me when I'm overdue for updating this blog, and when it's time to take the dog for a walk, when it's time to check the oil in the car, do the bills, take out the trash, etc. I even have a habit set up to remind me when it's time to work on the app itself!

Well, it's very much a work in progress. There's not yet a way to keep track of accounts, so at the moment it's only good for one user, but I plan on adding user accounts soon. Let me know if you're interested in beta testing it!
