Today my blog celebrates it’s fourth birthday!
Four years, and I’m in it for the long haul. It began with the intention of writing about my law school experience, and when that fell through the next blogging phase became a struggle with an identity crisis, as I struggled to decide what my blog should be about and how I could profit from all the work I had put into it, and from there it evolved into a treatise chronicling my abject failure on dating sites and with women in general. I cried, I wailed, I screamed, and I emoted, drowning my sorrows every night in hot cocoa and blueberry muffins.
And then one day, I made my very last payment on my college loan and was finally and completely out of debt. Shortly afterward, my blog had suddenly become a moneymaker. Not a “I can quit my job and live the rest of my days on a 50 acre ranch somewhere in the mountains of New Zealand” kind of moneymaker, but definitely an “I can buy lots of funsie toys and travel a whole HECK of a lot more often to anywhere I please” kind of moneymaker.
With that revelation in mind and the subsequent discovery of geocaching, the identity crisis I had long experienced with this blog finally came to an end. Why not make it about travel? Indeed, and not just travel, but a journey, a journey around the world that can now be experienced in reality rather than in my mind. A journey where I continually search for love. For truth. For justice. For geocaches. For… pizza. :-D
After 4 years, my blog, and even more importantly, my audience, has helped me fulfill one of my biggest dreams, and this may only be the beginning. Our fate is now tied together. I welcome you all to join me as I embark on a never-ending journey, where together we can discover a whole new world.
