Greetings, friends and readers!
I’d like to welcome you to my new blog and online home.
Over the past few months, I’ve been working on an all-new layout and structure for the blog. I wanted to make these changes for two reasons.
1. It’s always good to change it up. Never rest on your laurels!
I haven’t felt challenged through the blog in a while. When it started several years ago, it was new and exciting. It never became a job or something I didn’t enjoy, but for a while I’ve wanted to take it more seriously and do something different.
“Everything was going well, so I decided to change it all.”
However, the second reason is far more important.
2. Every day, thousands of people visit and read this blog. Many of these people are doing remarkable things—traveling the world, starting businesses, and pursuing grand adventures of all kinds.
I want to tell better stories. I want to shine a spotlight on as many of these amazing people and projects and possible.
I’ll be doing that on the new blog, every single day for at least the rest of the year, and most likely for long afterwards.
Whether you’ve been reading for a long time or you’ve just stumbled in, this is for you. I made it so you’d know there are other people who see the world in a similar way.
You want more from life! You want to be a part of something big! And you’re not alone: all over the world, there are many other people with a similar perspective.
Welcome to the all-new Art of Non-Conformity. Here’s how it works.
Every Tuesday will feature a travel profile—one of our readers who is out and about in the world.
Every Wednesday will feature an interview or short excerpt from Unconventional Guides.
Every Friday has a giveaway. You can win something valuable—no strings attached—simply by commenting.
Every Saturday has a photo tour of an airline lounge, international city, or other interesting experience.
There’s also a video of the week, an Ask the Readers series where you can share your input with other readers, and, as they say, so much more.
In between all of these things will be other short posts, written and curated by me. I’ll be sharing here much more frequently than I ever have. I’m extremely excited about this new process, and I hope you’ll join me for it.
Throughout the process you’ll be invited to participate in a series of ongoing experiments. Not all posts will have comments, but this one does, and we’ll keep them open for a long time.
Feel free to say hi and introduce (or reintroduce) yourself.
Thanks for reading. The best is yet to come!
