Bucket List Publications is a huge part of me. It’s my personal life, my family, my travels, my thoughts, my friends, my day. It’s a look into me… both good and bad. Few people are willing to be so open about their life with thousands of readers daily. It’s a big challenge to know how much to put out there and how much to keep to myself, but the rewards are greater than my wildest expectations. I’ve made friends, learned more here than during my 7 years of university, explored the world, challenged myself, and created a career. I’m happy to share, but I’m always trying to find the best way to do it.
Many of you know that I have two sites – this one and bucketlistpublications.com. I’ve kept them separate for years. This site is more my daily life and personal thoughts about my day and the other site has been more of a deeper look into destinations, experiences, encounters, and adventures. In the past, I’ve published on this one way more than the other site but things have shifted this year. With life-changing adventures like sailing to Antarctica as part of the training crew on a tall ship, gorilla and chimpanzee trekking in Uganda, and exploring countries like Israel and Mauritius, I feel like I need to publish a deeper look into these encounters. A daily glimpse just isn’t enough. Besides, posting daily while trying to man a ship or avoid dangerous wildlife in the forests of Uganda isn’t exactly as easy feat. What I realized is that I enjoy the direction and freedom of bucketlistpublications.com way more.
Many of us have become like a family here. We comment, like, and share each other’s sites and have become familiar with the routine, so I will continue to post on this site regularly, but have you visited the other site? Check it out and see if you like it. You’ll find creative ideas to add to your own list.
I’ve been working on all of my social media, not just the website. Here are the links to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts. Include your social media in the comments below and we can follow each other.
Has blogging become a major part of your life? Has it changed you in a great way? Have you used other social media platforms to express yourself? I’d love to read your story.
This site will always be a huge part of my life. I will continue to share my day and my thoughts with you. Thank you for what you’ve made it into. You’re my second home.
