The Story Behind The Blog

From Kristy Owen, Founder of 365 Things Austin

I found myself doing the same things over and over again.

In 2009, as I looked toward a new decade, a goal of mine was to get out, try new things, and see all Austin had to offer. But I was always going back to the same few bars, restaurants, and parties. It was hard to get out of my comfort zone.

Nearly 3,000 consecutive days of exploring new things to do in Austin.

On January 1, 2010, I made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in Austin, Texas. I enjoyed the adventure so much that after the year was over, I just kept on going! I’ve now written about something fun to do each day for almost 3,000 consecutive days, and I still manage to find new adventures.

Sharing the best things going on in Austin each day.

My goal isn’t to tell you everything there is to do in Austin on any particular day, but the best things. I filter out all the noise. These posts reflect my point of view, and I’m by no means an expert on most things discussed here (with the exception of Mexican food and margaritas perhaps).

I hope you enjoy the journey and discover something new about the city. 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.
