You might be a blogger if you’re excited about your next birthday just so you can start blog series you’ve been planning for years.

Let me explain.

Years ago, I decided that I was going to put together an epic 40 Before 40 list and blog about my journey as I crossed each adventure off my list. But now that age 39 is only a little over two months away I’ve realized I have two problems: 1) I don’t have a list of 40 things I want to do before 40 and 2) My personal blog, which is where I had planned to post about my shenanigans, hasn’t been updated in over two years.

So I need your help.

First, I need some ideas for my list. Here’s what I have so far:

  • Launch a podcast.
  • Have my first $10K month.
  • Buy a new car.
  • Get a new passport and use it.
  • Speak at Creative Mornings Birmingham.
  • Take dance classes at Intercity Dance Collective.
  • Host a Galentine’s Day event.
  • Reach my goal weight.
  • Host a small group at my house.
  • Write for 10 of my favorite publications.

I want this list filled with goals for every area of life — health and fitness, spiritual, family, friends, marriage, financial, career, and fun.

I want to include activities that will help me be a tourist in my own city of Birmingham.

The things on this list can be both big and small.

And I’d love to add things that you could be a part of, too.

So, share with me some things on your birthday or bucket lists to give me some inspiration.

Second, I need you to help me decide where I’m going to blog about my journey. Should I do so here on the See Jane Write blog? Should I write about it on my portfolio site Should I raise Writeous Babe from the dead? Should I start a new blog just for this?

Or maybe I shouldn’t blog about it all. Should I just share it on Instagram or Facebook instead?

I would love to know what you think.
