2012 countdown clockLike every year, there are some big events happening in 2012 and you should stay on top of them. What’s better than to have your own virtual countdown playing as a constant reminder of a looming day? Sometimes a simple calendar doesn’t do the trick for the visual person like me. Seeing those days tick off really gets me prepared and, depending on what’s happening, builds up a little excitement.

“End of the World” Countdown

If you’ve been out of touch with the Internet (since major news won’t cover it yet) or you just haven’t had your tinfoil hat around, 2012 is when the world is actually going to end! Or, at least that’s what the Mayan long count calendar is supposed to theorize. With an imminent pole shift coming for us all in December of this year, you ought to know when we’re going to experience deadly floods, unimaginable earthquakes, and the simultaneous eruption of all volcanoes on our planet. “Be smart… Be ready.”

But really, if you do buy into all of that stuff, this is a great calendar for it. They even offer a Flash embed for you to use in email and on your blog so that you can share the narcissism.

Making Your Own Countdown

There are only three websites that I’d recommend when it comes to creating your own countdowns online:

  1., which will allow you to create your own and customize them from a list of templates.
  2. Countdown Days, allowing you to create and share a countdown that supports comments, Facebook “Likes”, and tweeting.
  3. KOUNTit, which is probably the simplest and quickest of the three.

It’s incredibly easy and I wouldn’t expect anyone to need much direction, but here’s a quick rundown of Countdown Days:

It’s that simple, really. Just fill out the form and ensure that all required fields are complete, then submit.

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing which I feel I might by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very wide for me. I'm looking forward to your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
