Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.
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?
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.
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!
Stay out of the fridge.
