In 2013, I took some time to refocus, refresh, and renew my commitment to blogging. Since launching in June 2012, we’ve encountered a great deal of growth, met extremely insightful people, traveled and moved to cool cities, and just overall experienced inspiration. Despite all of this, the one thing that time didn’t allow too much of…was updating and showing the blog some love.
With 2014 in full swing, I say “forget about it’. The refocus has enticed me to identify key focal points (content) that AAOP.me will spotlight and deliver — on a weekly basis. Yep, on a weekly basis! I’m refreshed to know that my current location (Washington, DC), will be headquarters for an extended period of time — think longer than short-term, but not as mundane as permanent (not that permanent is bad…I don’t mind permanent 😉 ). And with this, I renew my vow to deliver and create content showcasing the works of everyday, motivating, fun, kick-ass experiences and people, and ideas that inspires us all to find and pursue our unique vocations. Let’s go!
…oh, and check out the 2013 Recap vid below. Thanks! -MK
