I believe there is great value in making a public pledge, and that in making that pledge you will increase your chances of success.  Accordingly, if you check the permission box in the sign up form below I will publish your name and the elements you've selected in a list on this site.  To track your progress, I've created an excel based pledge tracker (download). I've included the first few weeks of my own progress as an example of how to use the tracker.

Please send this website to anyone you think might be interested! Sign up below, and I will track how many people are participating.  I will use online polls on the blog to monitor people's progress.   If enough people join, I will add an online system for people to track their progress.  As the year goes on, I'd love to hear from anyone about the experience.  I can be reached at oneyearpledge@gmail.com.
