Topics for my blog?

Postby LifeExcursion » Tue Aug 04, 2009 7:39 pm

Hey guys and gals!!!

I have started my own brand spanking new blog. It is called LifeExcursion. My goal is to help everyone, including myself, make your excursion through life a little more enjoyable. Get Rich Slowly has and still does so for me practically.

I am focusing on finance, fitness, minimalism, organization, but will touch on any and all ways to make life better.

I could definitely use some ideas for what you want to hear about. So if you can help me out, please give me some suggestions and check out my site.

Thanks to all of you and I hope to provide some great info for you just like GRS!!!!

I'd suggest doing two things.

1. Looking inwards to see what it is that YOU have to OFFER to people. What is your gift that will change people's lives? Forget everything else and ask yourself WHY you started this blog. The answers that come may not be something that you like, but it's OK. It's important to be familiar with that process.


2. Make focus of the blog NARROW. Writing about everything to make journey through life easier may be difficult to grab people's interest with. Find a niche, and stick to it. It will work especially well if your niche is applicable to current world trends / affairs and/or is AHEAD OF THEM. So, for example, a blog called "Starting A Business In Post-Recession Economy" would probably attract a lot of interest.

Hope it helps.

Thanks so much. I am going to try and implement your ideas. The toughest part is staying focused and not wandering from whatever I am discussing. So, hopefully, I just stay down the same path.

Very much enjoyed reading the blog. Especially happy about the content on minimalism. I would love to see a post that helps me resolve my inner conflict regarding the decision of whether to keep or toss various possessions when they already fit in a bedroom/closet (except for my car and I guess my dining table/chairs). I constantly have to resist the urge to over-purge because most of my stuff is functional or could be whenever I move again. Examples: I own a quality metal futon but an air mattress would be more transportable. I have a combination microwave/toaster which I love but everywhere I've lived lately already has a built-in microwave. I also really like my small filing cabinet even though it's tempting to trade it in for a lightweight mobile carry-on version. So... at what point do you stop? What if I move into my own place that is larger and could easily accommodate this stuff regardless (and where I'd probably have to gradually acquire more just to fill up the space)? How do I filter my belongings before I've settled down into something permanent and without knowing what that entails and what to expect?
