The Story Behind The Blog

In 2009, as I looked towards a new decade, a goal of mine was to get out, try new things and see what Austin had to offer. I found myself going back to the same handful of favorite bars/restaurants/etc, rather than exploring things outside my comfort zone.

I set a New Year’s resolution to blog on one thing to do each day in Austin, Texas on January 1st, 2010. I enjoyed the adventure so much, that after the year was over, I just kept going! I’ve now blogged on something fun to do each day for over 1,500 consecutive days, and I still manage to find new things to do each day in this amazing city!

My goal isn’t to tell you EVERYTHING there is to do in Austin on any particular day, I filter through all the noise to give you the BEST things to do each day. These posts are all just opinions, and I’m by no means an expert on most things discussed here (with the exception of Mexican food and margaritas perhaps).

I’m a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations, and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.

I hope you enjoy the journey and discover something about the city that is new to you. I’m always open to suggestions as a year’s worth of activities is a big list to compile!

As always, it’s a great day to be alive in Austin, Texas.
