Chromapost (formerly known as ChromaTweet) is an ongoing nano-blogging project where each post consists of a single color tone. The daily moods, feelings, and experiences are compressed into one piece of information: color.

Rules:
One chromapost per day, every day.
No white (FFFFFF) or black (000000).
The title of every post is the hexadecimal code of the color.
