409 Down and 91 To Go….

Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

Wow!

Just looking at the blog stats and I realised that I have 90 more posts to “dream up” before I set off on my mammoth charity walk – donations please everyone, yes I mean EVERYONE so that means you… Click on the picture to donate….

I have been blogging as you know since January of last year and although there has been much content and much written for The Huffington Post, I have also managed to come up with 401 posts that are separate to these other pages. Quite an achievement really to be fair (even if some simply say I am having a day off or I have completely forgotten to post anything!!) to show my dedication to something that until only just over a year ago I had never even really heard of!

Anyway, that is by the by.

Today I want to ask you guys how you see this blog going after I have finished it. How you might see how I will progress my blogging career further when I no longer have the WBFM platform to work from.
As many of you already know this blog is set to be turned into a book at the end of the charity walk and it will be sold in the hope of raining funds for the charities I am planning on walking for…..

Oh, did I not tell you?

No?

Oh, well in that case you had better keep tuning in for updates but it looks like we may yet be expanding the charity benefactors to two instead of just the one. Both are child obesity related so still along the same track, it’s just that adding this second one may raise the profile of the walk and event somewhat and give us more of a springboard from which to promote a much more heavily supported affair.

Anyway, back to today’s blog.

I am as I have said stopping this blog at 499 posts at which point I shall undertake the mammoth task of walking 170 miles during which I shall write all about on blog post number 500. I shall also post video logs and catch ups during the walk but the final post will be a mammoth story that will require some time to digest but it will be the perfect way to end the blog and the book plus it will show exactly how far we have come, hopefully with endorsements from people all over the world writing how the blog may have helped them over the 18 months this blog was running for.

This brings me to my question of today which is one that I will need help with from you guys. Obviously this current blog is all about weight loss, charity walks, mental health and all associated problems and stories that I have linked to my obesity.

BUT.

After my walk and subsequent holiday, when I return to write in early July, I will no longer have the issues that I speak of, the walk will have been completed, the weight will be down to level that will simply require maintenance and my life will no longer revolve around the fact that I am or was fat and have changed it all around. I will need a new tagline, a new identity and a new subject to offer my thoughts and concerns about. Obviously the Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet is hoping to become a brand and therefore I may well simply shorten it to WBFM but these are decisions that need to be made as I need to make everything count going forward as there has been a great deal of investment in the Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet, so much in fact that it would be foolish to leave it behind.

So there you go guys, my question is this –

Where to now? What to blog about and whom shall I become as I re-invent myself?

It can’t be that difficult to come up with some idea’s after all, we aren’t re-inventing the wheel….

I shall leave these questions with you and if you can come up with any answers or more questions then please do comment, comment, comment!

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    Having been one of the many people who have been on a diet this and forgive me is the easier bit of the journey. I think because we are so motivated to lose the weight it is the easy bit. The hard bit for me is keeping it off. .at present I need to lose the the pounds that have crept back on. I know what to do, I have everything at hand to do so but the motivation is so very hard. That is what people need to know is how to continue the years down the line.
    Continue being you with adventures thrown in:)

    I think you should continue chronicling your journey to happiness, because that what this is? Your blog, life? Share what you are able to achieve and do now that you are a healthier version of your previous self. Just continue writing about your happiness and achievements to inspire others.

    I think World’s Biggest Fridge Magnet is a fantastic name. Any way you can keep it?

    I enjoy your recipes, and I agree with Denise about keeping up inspiring posts around maintaining health. Since you obviously have a big heart for people, have you considered writing profiles of some you’ve met on your journey?

      Hey Allison, that is so weird yo should say that about other peoples profiles. I have had an idea I would like to consider so as it is in the embryonic stage I shall say nothing but it certainly follows those lines.
      I love the name the worlds biggest fridge magnet so yes, I may well keep it on, maybe I will see about moving the current content to another site and setting that as “closed” so there will be no updates to it and it will be the first part of my journey.
      It’s great getting feedback because I am thinking of stuff as I write this reply…..

    I think the maintenance part of your journey is never ending and would definitely interest readers, especially if you continued your fight against childhood obesity. It seems these themes are already a passion of yours, I can easily imagine a blog successfully integrating those ideas… healthy eating, physical activity, recipes, education, public awareness, etc. You’re already doing that… don’t stop, we love reading your posts! 😊

      Oooh…. That is so kind of you to say so. I find it dd that people enjoy reading what I write. I just verbal most of the time so it’s great that it is well received…!
      I think the consensus is to carry on with what I do and just simply champion them as much as I can.

    Why do you need to do a post every day now? YOu did it for a year … maybe you should cut down a little to give yourself the time you need to focus on the walk. Maybe ensuring that you post X number of times a week but of real quality. HOnestly – less can be more sometimes. This is intended as encouragement not critisism. I think you know that but I should state it to the rest of the world in case I get rocks chucked – I don’t like that!
