SO WHAT IS BLOG IT LIST? IT'S A SORT OF BUCKET LIST. NOT A LIST OF THINGS YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH BEFORE YOU DIE, RATHER A LIST OF THINGS TO REMIND YOU WHY IT’S GREAT TO BE ALIVE!

Jonathan Phelps - Blog It List

What is Blog It List?

Two years ago I had an idea; I had spent so much time focusing on growing a business and creating financial stability that I had almost forgotten to enjoy myself along the way.  I was presented with opportunities and I would make a decision based on how it would effect my end goal rather then if I genuinely wanted to do something or not.  I expect we’ve all done it at some point in our lives.  So what is Blog It List?  It’s a conscious decision to get out of my own way.  To enrich and fulfil my life with travel, new and exciting experiences, indulging in my interests and doing something just because its fun!  A sort of bucket list.  Not a list of things you hope to accomplish before you die, rather a list of things to remind you why it’s great to be alive!

I carry myself better, always looking for the positives in life, achieving goals, setting challenges and more recently, travelling more then ever before!

 


So why start now?

Like I said, the idea popped into my head a few years ago, so why not start a blog then?  Why not actively look for more, then to what mass thinking tells us to do?  Simple answer, I got in my own way again.  I had laid the foundations with the idea but failed to build on it.  Something more important would always come up.  I became the problem again, but I soon realised that I am also the only answer.  So as a result I started to motivate myself, rewire my mind and through a lot of hard work I now feel I have found the perfect balance.  People who know me have seen a change, one for the positive.  I carry myself better, always looking for the positives in life, achieving goals, setting challenges and more recently, travelling more then ever before!  Unfortunately all this has taken time, delayed further by the fact I’m the only driving force in my business (Perhaps just another excuse?).  So at this point in my life all is well and it’s also the start of a new year.  It seems like it’s the perfect time to start something else don’t you think?  This will be the start of an online Blog It List, primarily for myself but also for anyone to draw inspiration from.  I will cast my mind back two years ago to the start, and continue up to the present and beyond.  This is what makes me who I am, and you’re welcome to join in.

  1. Whats up are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need
    any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be
    really appreciated!

    1. Hi Kathryn,

      I’m new to blogging too but as far as I’m aware coding isn’t really necessary. It’s useful when you want to customise a theme but otherwise everything else can be done fairly simply. You just need to find a hosting platform (I used Godaddy) download a theme and have a play around with it to learn. Theres plenty of videos online showing you how to set one up. Best of Luck!
