I love where my feedreader (and Twitter) take me sometimes, and today was one of times. I started with one of the backpacking blogs I read regularly, Nomadic Matt, and came across his How I Became Nomadic Matt post . I’ve been reading Matt’s site for quite awhile (a year?), but never really had the backstory of how he got to where he is. Well, now I do — and I’ll likely be a more loyal reader as a result. From there, I read through the comments (and commented a couple times), and ended up clicking over to Toni White’s blog and seeing her “where my story began” post about halfway down the page. Both posts are fascinating stories. As I’ve said over and over, it’s the people and social components of the web that I enjoy — hence, the reason I enjoy reading personal stories like these and learning more about the actual individuals behind the blogs.
I’m a little over a year into my nomadic life, but I fully anticipate one of these posts is coming in my own future — might be awhile though. Those that really care can head to my personal blog and read away.
