About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

Ever since I’ve been a high school teacher, July has been a month of detox; it’s when I learn to breathe again, relax, slow down, and let myself find a rhythm of life that is natural and centered on what … Continue reading
I’m trying to be happy. Actually, I’m trying not to try to be happy; I would prefer to simply notice and embrace any opportunities for joy that come my way. It seems, however, that I’m not very practiced at this. Here … Continue reading
Earlier this week, I heard this snippet on NPR that discussed whether having children really makes people happier. It startled me. At first listen, they made the argument that people with children were less happy than those without — and … Continue reading
