I've created a local Python User Group for Värmland, my province in Sweden. I used Mezzanine, a Django-based CMS to create its website, www.pythonvarmland.se. Now I have to generate interest and get the word out...
Hacker Noon graciously picked up one of my articles about a Linux Bash prompt script I wrote:

Since I'm not all about technology, I've written an article making the case for why I think the Bible and the Quran should be updated by their adherents. This is probably pretty controversial, so wish me luck. And by all means, feel free to let me know what you think.

I also realized that a great way to keep people coming back to my website is to make a Twitter account (http://www.twitter.com/OperationGYST) and a Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/OperationGYST) for the project. That way I can easily notify those who follow / like those accounts, instead of spamming all my friends whenever I've written something that I think is cool, but noone else cares about. Perhaps I should also make a Mastodon account? Hmm.
I really like Mastodon. It feels so much social than other social networks.
I suspect it's because none of our real life friends use Mastodon, we feel the need to make NEW friends here, by interacting with people we don't know - so in a sense, we're more actively social on Mastodon than we would be normally. Also, the local timeline is a great way to find like-minded people to interact with.
I've now been using my experimental productivity system Operation Get Your Shit Together for about a week and a half, and so far it seems to work. I posted an update on the web page I created for the project - feel free to check it out and perhaps even post a comment, if it interests you: www.OperationGYST.com.
I just checked out tildes.net (on the suggestion from someone here, I think?), and wow - I'm impressed. In short, it's an open source Reddit alternative that, to me, seems to do a lot of things better than Reddit.
It's still invite-only for now, but I was able to request and get an invite pretty quickly.
My #OperationGetYourShitTogether website is now live at www.OperationGYST.com. It's very barebones at the moment, it needs a lot more content and some images, but it's a start. If you're interested in productivity systems and self improvement, feel free to read what little there is, and comment on it. Thanks!
I've now started building the website to go with #OperationGettingMyShitTogether, but there's not enough content to really make it public yet.
I'm considering launching a website about this, where I post updates on how well (or not) I do, to keep myself accountable, and perhaps inspire someone else to do something similar.
This way, I start small with routines I know I can maintain, so I won't feel like I've failed. Then, once those habits are established, I can safely add one more habit to each routine.
Eventually, if I do this right, an evening routine might look like:
1. Meditate for 10 min
2. Read something worthwhile for 20 minutes
3. Prepare for next day (pack bag for work, etc)
4. Brush teeth and floss
5. Go to bed on time
Therefore, I start with just two routines - a morning routine, and an evening routine. Each routine will initially consist of just one habit each - "get up on time", and "go to bed on time", respectively. Once I've successfully completed such a routine 20 days in a row, I've earned the right to add one more habit to that routine.
