People often turn to blogs when they want to read about extraordinary journeys undertaken by ordinary people. But you don’t have to sit around and wait for something life-changing to happen to you. Why not manufacture your own extraordinary journey?
Set a big goal, and write about your journey towards achieving it. Turn your blog into a journal, and let people follow along on your mission. For example, do you take part in races like the Spartan Race and Tough Mudder? Start a blog about your goals and how you train for those races. Want to become a chess master? Blog about all your successes, failures, and lessons along the way.
The film Julie & Julia was based on the book Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen, by Julie Powell. Both the book and the movie began from a blog called The Julie/Julia Project. Julie Powell decided to spend the year cooking through all 524 recipes in Julia Child’s classic cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 1, and blog about it. It’s a classic journey blog.
What extraordinary journey will you pursue this year? The world wants to know about it.
